Get The Look

Happy Fourth Of July, Ladies!

Kat Von D, reality star and tattoo artist extraordinaire looks fabulous here with her varying color eyeshadows and amped up neutral lip! I really like her creativity and unique style that she exudes, so I figured I would break down this beauty look for my readers.

Kat Von D

Here is how to get this makeup look on a beauty budget:
  • Start off with a good primer to reduce the look of pores and fine lines. This is also useful to help your makeup stay on longer. I like Monistat's Chafing Relief Gel as a facial base on a budget, but you can use whatever primer you like.

  • Apply your foundation and/or concealer of choice. A great option for a long lasting drugstore foundation is Revlon's Colorstay Liquid or Milani's Compact Mineral Makeup. For dark circles, L'Oreal Air Wear Concealer offers lightweight coverage.

  • For this look, the focus is on Kat's eyes and lips, so no blush or bronzer is necessary here.
  • Fill in your brows with a pencil or brown shadow. Revlon's Brow Fantasy has a pencil on one end and a brow-controlling gel on the other, which is useful for taming unruly brows. This will frame the face nicely.

  • In this look, Kat is wearing shades of blue shadows on one eye, and shades of bronzey brown on the other. You could recreate this if you wish, or tone it down by using the same color schemes on both eyes.

  • A great option for her shades of blue shadows would be Milani's Runway Eyes Shadow Palette in "Beauty in Blues" which offers a gradient of six fashionable blue shades.
  • For the brown side, you could use NYX's Ultra Pearl Mania loose shadow in "Walnut", which offers a rich, shimmering brown.

  • Kat Von D uses a soft black smudged liner on both her eyes, and a liquid liner to create that winged cat-eye look. Almay's Liquid Eyeliner is easy to use with a small felt tip applicator, and lasts all day.

  • NYX Doll Eye Mascara is now available in a Waterproof formula that lengthens and volumizes. I love this mascara and applied to your top and bottom lashes, it will easily help you recreate this look.

  • And, to finish it all off, a soft, shiny lip color to smooth over your lips. For an opaque shade like Kat's try L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Toasted Almond. For a sheer shade, I love NYX's Tinted Lip Spa, perhaps in the color Hush.
