Spring is Here

Recently, I’ve had a lot of clients looking for an alternative to their current tinted moisturizer. They feel that they need a change with the season. Now the weather has broken, it’s time to be out and about!

Look no further than the Stripped Nude Skin Tint from Kevyn Aucoin! With infused skincare benefits such as Hyaluronic Acid to plump the skin, Butterfly Brush Flower Extract to help protect against blue light, Wu-Zhu-Yu Fruit Extract for luminosity, and antioxidants including Vitamin E. It is also formulated with Water-in-Silicone and Elastomer Powder for fine lines, texture, and for extra comfortable wear.

The Kevyn Aucoin Stripped Nude Skin Tint has been my go-to for clients seeking the coverage of a foundation but the weightlessness of a tinted moisturizer. Although it gives sheer to light coverage, this silky foundation manages to blur imperfections and even out the skin tone. The finish is radiant, smooth, hydrated skin.


Pro tips:

• Start with clean, moisturized skin with SPF protection.  We always say the best SPF is the one you’ll use.  There are so many different options now – there really isn’t a good excuse not to use it.

• Apply a small amount of the skin tint starting in the center of the face blending outward with fingers, brush, or sponge

(tint can also be used as a primer for other foundations if you want added coverage)

• Layer concealer on areas needing more coverage (dab and pat so as not to wipe away the tint underneath

• Set lightly with loose powder

•Add your favorite blush, bronzer, and highlighter for a healthy, glowy complexion
