When Kat Von D launched her beauty brand in 2008 exclusively with Sephora she was set to shake up the industry. Now the artist is leading the way with a new set of techniques...

Next year marks Kat Von D Beauty's 10th anniversary on the Sephora beauty shelf and to celebrate Buro 24/7 Middle East discovers the artist's top makeup tips. "Everyone has different skin texture," says Von D. "The easiest comparison is to compare (skin) to fruit: apples, oranges and peaches. The apple skin type is super smooth and shiny with no pores. Secondly, you have an orange, which is the skin type with more pores. Lastly you have the peach, which has visible fine hair." Here Von D describes the ultimate foundation application according to skin type...

Shiny, Smooth Skin (The Apple)

Start from the centre of the face and work outwards. With the stippling brush work in small circles and build the custom coverage that you want.

Bumpy, Pore Prone Skin (The Orange)

To achieve flawless skin, dip the brush into the foundation and stamp it across the skin. Then blend the foundation using the bare minimum coverage.

Fine Hair Face (The Peach)

Use less than one pump of foundation and avoid adding more texture by using too much product. Be conscious in the direction that you apply the foundation, work downwards with your brushstrokes. Follow the same direction as your hair. Then blend.
