It’s safe to say that Kat Von D has come a long way since we first met her on Miami Ink. We’ve always admired her artistic sensibilities, but we have to be honest: when we heard she was doing makeup we were a little bit skeptical. That all changed, though, once we got the chance to put her high-performance, long-lasting beauty products to the test. Let’s just say, we’re hooked.
Here’s how it went down: Sephora hooked us up with a bunch of Kat Von D’s bestselling beauty items, then we enlisted the help of celebrity and fashion makeup artist Maya René to show us how to use them. The result? Two daytime looks and two night time looks that real SHEfinds girls with different skin coloring and personal style fell in love with.
Of all the products René used, the highlight of the shoot was definitely the tattoo liner. It has these cool felt hair tips that make creating that perfectly precise cat eye super easy. The “rose mascara” was a close second for office fave. The tip of the wand is the rose, and then it spirals to make the leaves. Use the stem first to apply mascara and then the rose to create definition. #amaze
