♡ Kevyn Aucoin - The Celestial Powder Candlelight Glow

May 08, 2013


I never use to bother much with highlighters, though now that i'm craving a natural radiant look i've been reaching for them a lot more. Due to my growing love for these light infusing miracles, I decided to treat myself to a little splurge and finally bought The Celestial Powder in Candlelight by Kevyn Aucoin. Costing a very purse unfriendly £34 this stuff definitely isn't cheap, though after reaching for it everyday for the past 4 weeks I can safely say it has been worth the investment.

Unlike a lot of highlighters out there The Celestial Powder provides a much more subtle shimmer rather than a glittery finish, which is perfect for those aiming for something quite natural. Candlelight is described as a 'soft golden apricot hue' and I find that even on my pale skin it doesn't look at all 'orange' but quite skin-like.

I've been applying this every morning to my cheekbones with the Real Techniques contour brush for a truly beautiful highlight (the camera really doesn't do it justice!) that packs just enough punch without overdoing it.

Has anyone else tried the Celestial Powder? What's your favorite highlighter?
