I love the look of La Bella Muerte and dressed up twice this past Halloween ( see below) thanks to Michelle Phan's tutorial via You Tube. I saw quite a trend in this overall look on all social media platforms so was super stoked to see Kat Von D's new collection as it pays homage to the " Day of the Dead."
KAT VON D SPRING 2014 ESPERANZA COLLECTION
Kat Von D, one of the most renowned tattoo artists in the world, introduces an enchanting and transformative new collection to her namesake beauty brand for Spring 2014: ESPERANZA. Inspired by the "Day of the Dead," a joyful celebration of life within the Latino culture, this collection fuses the color, beauty and transformative spirit of Spring with skull and flower imagery created by Kat to capture her interpretation of this meaningful day.
Kat Von D Esperanza Eye Shadow Palette ($36) – This multi-dimensional, limited edition palette contains eight long-wear matte, pearl and high glitter shades that provide high-pigment, crease-free color with serious staying power. Mix and match shades for an abundance of gorgeous, on-trend looks, and then layer on Dayglo, a sheer iridescent green that transforms any shade and adds an ethereal multi-dimensional quality. New shades include: Selena (glitter purple), Dayglo (transformer shade – iridescent green), Galore (pearl peach), Placebo (matte peony pink), Santeria (glitter greenish grey), Archangel (sparkle sea foam green), South (matte beige), Dog Roses (sparkle bronze). Finish your eye look with a swipe of Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper ($20), an ink black, for added definition.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($19) – Kat introduces seven new shades to her ultimate long-wearing matte lip color collection, providing 12 shades in all. With new moisturizing ingredients enriched with vitamins A, C & E, lips stay hydrated for comfortable, smooth, and effortless all-day wear. From bold brights to low-key neutrals, there’s a shade for every mood. Choose from the new shades, including Vampira (deep reddish burgundy), l.u.v. (rich violet), Mau5 (deep raspberry), Bachelorette (deep fuchsia pink), Underage Red (bright crimson), Armageddon (light pink), A-Go-Go (bright orange-red); or rediscover the re-mastered shades: Backstage Bambi (hot pink- shown below), Berlin (warm rose), Jeffree (bright coral pink), Lolita (dusty rose) and Outlaw (brick red).
Kat Von D Transformer Liquid Lipstick ($25) – Transform your look instantly with this liquid lipstick topcoat that glides on seamlessly over any shade of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20). This shade-shifting pearlized pink topcoat starts off one color and changes once applied over any matte liquid lipstick, adding ultimate shine and multi-dimensional color brilliance. Available in one shade: Superliminal.
