For all those makeup creatives (and admirers) out there—Kat Von D just announced her latest makeup venture—named the Artistry Collective, with four top beauty, professional makeup artists and influencers who will represent the Kat Von D Beauty brand globally. So basically Kat corralled a few badass makeup artists to show off her Kat Von D Beauty products. And guess what—she’s also debuting a youtube channel so we can all salivate (and attempt) to recreate some cool makeup looks.
So who’s part of the team hand-picked by Kat Von D—Kelseyanna Fitzpatrick, Tara Buenrostro, Steffanie Strazzere, and Leah Carmichael. And what can we expect—everything from everyday looks to the avant-garde. Each of these innovative artists has an outstanding background ranging across makeup education, working with celebrities and top celebrity makeup artists, and editorial work.
“I am so excited to expand the Kat Von D Beauty family with these extremely talented women who are the perfect reflection of the brand. I discovered these gifted artists through their remarkable work on their personal Instagram accounts, and while each one of these ladies is brilliant in her own right, we are unstoppable together as the Artistry Collective. I can honestly say that I am a fan of each of these artists – Leah excels with complexion and has the ability to make anyone look flawless, Tara has a raw style that stems from her art background, Steffanie’s gothic aesthetic is romantic and beautiful, and Kelsey blows me away with her power to manipulate makeup to look like a painting, especially at such a young age. These ladies are true artists with big hearts and are so essential in spreading Kat Von D Beauty all over the world on a much more profound level. I hope that the unique content we create with the Artistry Collective will also be an inspiration to others.” – Kat Von D
