We got to sit down with the lady herself to talk all things beauty
No longer will you have to pay a bomb in post and packing costs just to get your hands on Kat Von D’s beauty prods. The wait is finally over. Kat Von D beauty is coming to the UK. High five!
Her iconic, highly pigmented, long wear, make up collection is one of the most talked about brands, so we cannot wait until it hits Debenhams this September. Mark it in your diaries now!
Here’ what Kat had to say about it all…
Which product should we check out first?
Lock-It Tattoo Foundation, I think you guys will love it here in the UK, I worked on it for so long to get it perfect. It’s so good for the British weather.
The longevity of the makeup formula’s means this stuff won’t budge – this makeup requires no touch ups.
Why did you create your own makeup line?
I don’t want mini me’s everywhere, I want people to use this makeup line to celebrate their own sense of style.
It’s important for me to create in all aspects of my life, whether that’s designing tattoos, playing the piano or creating this line. We don’t give ourselves enough credit, we are capable of doing so many things and I’m going to die trying to do everything.
What inspires your makeup look?
Music has a big influence on it for sure. It wasn’t until I got into punk rock music that I really started using makeup as a form of self-expression. Most girls get into makeup to look cute but for me it wasn’t about that.
What do you say to people who don’t like your makeup look?
Makeup is not like getting a tattoo, with make up you can relax, you can mess up all day long but it comes off in the shower at the end of the day. If people don’t like something I do when I post it on Instagram, they just need to relax!
Who’s you beauty icon?
The people that have inspired me really weren’t lookers; they’re not beautiful in the conventional way. Like Edith Piaf for example, she is so beautiful to me, but has been considered strange looking. Confidence and contentment in yourself is such an attractive characteristic.
Kat Von D Beauty will be available online at Debenhams.co.uk from September 13th – get your orders in sharpish, it is sure to be a sell out!
