If the name sounds familiar, it may be because you’ve seen this badass of a girl on the Miami Ink
and L.A. Ink
television reality shows. Kat Von D
is a tattoo artist who rose to fame on L.A. Ink
where she led a pack of talented artists at her tattoo shop, High Voltage Tattoo, to a viewership of three miilion per week.
“People have always asked me what I would be doing if I wasn’t a tattoer, and the only things I could imagine being as fulfilling as tattooing would be doing makeup. To me makeup is one of the most artistic outlets of self-expression, and this collection — a mix of old Hollywood glamour with an L.A. vibe — personifies that. I am so excited to introduce my beauty brand to the Malaysian consumer, “ Kat Von D said of the launch of her eponymous beauty brand in Sephora Malaysia recently.
Looking at Kat Von D herself and for her legions of beauty fans and followers, her recipe of sultry retro glamour fused with a gritty rock ‘n’ roll edge, boasting a long-wearing, high-pigmented and full coverage quality is a real winner. Not only is the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick the No. 1-selling lipstick collection in Sephora US, the brand has also nabbed many editorial beauty awards. Inspired by her own portfolio of artwork like sketches, portraits and music, the Kat Von D beauty line will satisfy the entire cache of makeup pros, junkies and novices with its dark, artistic beauty signature.
