Kat Von D Makeup Collection

Updated on May 30, 2016

LA Ink Star Partners with Sephora

The use of the highly pigmented formulas makes it easy to create the unique look you want at home, especially if you want to get the glamour and style produced by top makeup artist.

I wanted to learn more about the brand so I checked out the Sephora website to find Kat's inspirational cosmetic line. Here are the 4 collections:

Kat Von D Poetica Collection - you can get a palette of eight eyeshadow colors and eyeliner pencil, then there is a makeup primer, a parfum roll on, signature fragrance bottle, full lash mascara and lipstick.

Kat Von D Tattoo Collection, this provides the tattoo concealer, brush and pink pencil marker to help make covering up skin ink easy.

Kat Von D Signature Look, includes the True Romance eyeshadow palettes, Ludwig and Beethoven, kat eye brush set, autograph eyeliner in Puro Amor, and painted love lipstick.

Kat Von D Adora Collection, comes with Adora Parfum Spray, Lipstick, Eyeshadow Palette, Rollerball, and Traincase.

Kats signature look of long dark hair with smokey eyes and red lipstick, has her showing her makeup techniques on Youtube.

One of her most watched videos is one shown on the Sephora Youtube channel called: Kat Von D's at Sephora Saint Look: Ludwig Palette How-to and I included it at the end of this post. Kat shares her make-up application secrets to getting a flawless Hollywood Glamour look.


Different Types of Tattoo Concealers

The great thing about being able to cover-up a tattoo is that there are so many different ways to do it. I came across several brands and techniques for hiding tattoos temporarily while keeping the inked art intact.

1. Tattoo Coverup Creams: is a color triation liquid cover makeup works well to hide your tattoo.

2. Tattoo Cover up Kit: usually comes with primer powder, finishing powder, camellia lotion, application sponge, powder brush, and application instructions.

3. Tattoo Cover up Sleeves: there is a choice of a tat jacket, the stretchable fabric can be used on your arms and legs.

These various methods gives you an alternative to tattoo removal and makes it possible to conceal tattoos on your body for weddings, or other formal occasions.

Tattoo Laser Removal Costs

One of the biggest reasons people choose to camouflage a graphic image or lettering on their body is for two reasons:

1. They are happy with their ink art and feel it would be inappropriate to showcase at a formal event.

2. They regret getting the tattoo and now want to cover it but can not afford to have it removed permanently.

The cost of tattoo laser removal is extremely high, and can require several repeat sessions to try to disperse the ink colors from the skin, newer pigments and inks used by professional tattooists is harder to remove even with laser treatments often times leaving a scar.

Kat Von D Tattoos

One of the features that Kat is known for is her amazing number of tattoos all over her body. The American tattoo artist and television personality really put the (art) of ink into the spotlight.

I loved watching her show LA ink, I learned so much about what it takes to prepare for a tattoo and how the drawings are made, from conception to the meaning behind many of the skin art that people choose to have tatted on their bodies.

Kat Publishes a Book and Creates her own Makeup Line

Many of you may remember how her first book called " High Voltage Tattoo" made it to the New York Times Bestsellers list where she gave us a sneak peek of her artwork and career as a tattoo artist through pictures.

The first time I saw Kat was on a show called Miami ink the reality TV show on TLC and I was in awe over how good she was at creating lovely portraits on peoples bodies.

I thought it was a good idea for her to start her own tattoo cover up makeup line for those who need to conceal their skin art on special occasions such as weddings or even at work.

Sephora Tattoo Cover-up Ad Campaign

What better way to promote the effectiveness of your makeup palette than by showing how it covers up the tattoos on your own body and that is exactly what Kat did in a photoshoot advertising her Sephora Makeup Collection.

In the Sephora ad campaign she does a full body coverup, pretty amazing if you ask me. I did not know it was even possible to achieve, but it goes to show you that the cosmetic blends are really heavy duty.


Kat Von D and Jessie James

The star watchers have been all over the story of how Kat supposedly took Jessie James away from Sandra Bullock but in actuality the two had been friends for years.

The West Coast Choppers TV personality is known for having affairs with other women and has got him into trouble many times.

Starting out as a bodyguard for rock n roll bands James started his own custom motorcycles and cars company.

If sponsoring NASCAR Race Teams isn't enough to keep the reality star Jessie James busy then the operating of a 50's style hamburger restaurant called Cisco Burgers, handling ventures such as the Chopperdogs fan club and the Jessie's girl clothing line or publishing the garage magazine will.

Friends Become Soul Mates

After 3 failed marriages Jessie James has another chance to get it right with Kat Von D, his new love and soon to be bride.

I think they make the perfect couple and I can see them having kids and building an even bigger empire together taking over the business world.

It is nice to see people who find their sole mate and sometimes it comes in the form of friendship.

Kat is successful and has a lot to bring to the table so not only does she have beauty but she also has brains.

Celebrity Look a Likes

As you know by now I like to compare stars and show how much they look like each other, a kind of weird habit but anyway.

I thought it was cool how Kat looks so much like Cher, maybe she was inspired from the legend, singer and actress.

The interesting thing about Cher is that she was not afraid to be different and stand out from the crowd even sporting a rock n roll style for many years.

Kat Looks Like Cher

The signature long dark hair and smokey eyes is seen in Hollywood among the younger scarlets today.

At age 65 the iconic superstar looked amazing at her film debut Burlesque screening. I actually rented the DVD of the movie and I thought it was good even though critics said it was a bad performance.

She has been in the news lately over her son Chaz Bono who will be on the show "Dancing with the Stars".
