For anyone who has a lot of acne marks and scarring (like me), the Kat Von D Lock-it liquid foundation is a god send ! While it does not cover everything, it does give me enough coverage to stop worrying about my face. The only drawback was that after a couple of hours, foundation would start breaking down and give my face a patchy appearance. After a couple of failed experiments, I was ready to give up but two new releases from Kat Von D completely changed my foundation game 🙂
Kat Von D Translucent Setting Powder
This Mica based powder is my favourite setting powder at the moment. It’s weightless on the skin and gives it a slightly matte soft focus effect. And it works very well the Lock-it foundation. The traceless formula sets the foundation without appearing cakey or heavy. And it stops the oils in the skin from seeping through the foundation. I apply it with the Powder brush from Sephora, focusing a bit more on my t-zone.
Kat Von D Lock-it Makeup Setting Mist
This Cucumber scented setting mist is cooling and refreshing. It’s suitable for all skin types, I can wear the spray without any clogged pores.
Along the setting powder, this works really well to extend the life of the Lock-it foundation. If you have ever worn the Lock-it foundation, you would know that sometimes it can be a little too matte on the skin. But with a few spritzes with this and the my skin just comes back to life ..
These have helped my foundation routine so much and I highly recommend both these products, specially for anyone who’s already using the Lock-it foundation. I use the foundation, follow it up with a dusting of the loose powder. Then apply blush / bronzed and finish it with a few spritzes of the setting mist.
As with all Kat Von D products, both are cruelty free and are made without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.
These are available in the Kat Von D counters in the Middle East and from sephora.ae . For more product details, please follow the links below.
