Would someone mind pinching me? Lemme just take this in- I WENT TO A KAT VON D BEAUTY EVENT.
I’ve pretty much lusted after Kat Von D products from day one really. I grew up binge watching LA Ink so she was always on my radar and an artist I really admired. Her make up line speaks to me on so many levels. Cruelty free and vegan with a stunning range of colours and of course the paler shades of foundation made me squeal when I first saw them(YASSS!). So to get to go to an event for her beauty products? I die.
I’ve received a couple of her products as gifts in the past but I’ve lusted after that Shade and Light palette for what feels like centuries! So when I got the email in my inbox inviting me to come along and see some of the latest creations due to be released, I almost fainted. I told no-one, as I was worried it was all a dream (how pathetic haha!) but oh me, oh my it was the best night ever!
The event was held at Club 49 in Soho, where the room was covered with red and black roses, filigree mirrors and of course pictures of the lovely lady herself. Blueberry mojito mocktails and prosecco was on the menu, with tiny tasty canapes doing their rounds.
I introduced myself to a couple of lovely bloggers before we were shown some of the beaut new bits Kat Von D Beauty has to offer. From metallic liquid lipsticks (eeee!) to a whole range of lip liners and the Shade and Light contour palette complete with new packaging, it was waaaaay too exciting.
A little while later, we were introduced to Kat Von D’s Artistry Collective, a group of super talented ladies, all of which were looking flawless last night. They answered some questions in a panel-like style, and gave us some of their best beauty tips- I can’t even deal they were goddamn beautiful inside and out!
After their Q&A, I managed to meet the ladies, have a little chat and of course get a few selfies in. Would it really be a blogger event if it didn’t include a photobooth gif either?!
I feel so overwhelmed and grateful to have attended, and basically been in the presence of AH-MAZING make up peeps. Little ol’ me! I’ve not been experimenting with make up for very long and my confidence with posting my looks is often a little bit up and down so to receive this invite, it’s really been a boost to my self esteem.
I’ll be sharing with you everything I got in my goodie bag in a separate post because my god there’s a lot to talk about. Thank you to DM London for the invite!
