Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Sephora Middle East Fall 2019 event and spent a great deal of time at the Kat Von D Beauty stall. Love this tattoo artist turned beauty mogul! I’m a sucker for art, great packaging and surreal shades of color, and Kat seems to effortlessly dish it all out time and time again.
Kat Von D Beauty has now come out with a brand new medium-coverage foundation range, and being a brand that values inclusion of all, the range is launching with 40 shades that cover very fair to very deep shades.
What It is
The Kat Von D Beauty True Portrait Foundation is a light-weight, water based medium coverage liquid-to-powder foundation.
The liquid-to-powder formula features an exclusive Elastic Essence™ Effect: a combination of spherical powders which have an elastic core that ensures the foundation never settles into skin. The result? An incredibly lightweight foundation that self-sets to a long-wear airy matte finish that flexes with each expression.
As this is a very light formulation, the Kat Von D Beauty True Portrait Foundation is perfect for everyday wear and gives the wearer a very believable, breathable coverage.
As it is a water-based formulation, using a Beauty Blender or any other sponge applicator is highly discouraged as the product will simply seep into the applicator.
The ideal way to apply this foundation is with your fingers.
A little goes a long way, and you only need a pea-sized squeeze of the bottle for each use.
Who Should Wear It
The Kat Von D Beauty True Portrait Foundation is ideal for normal to oily skin-types. Created to control shine with a unique formulation that balances sheer and opacity, this transformative texture ensures that your skin will not look shiny halfway through the day and won’t clog pores.
This formulation is very easy to apply due to its light-weight texture, thereby making it ideal for busy women and for travel.

Tezzy’s Experience with the Kat Von D Beauty True Portrait Foundation
I’ve been using this foundation almost daily for a week now, and love how light and quick it is to apply. I apply it with my fingertips as I would a face cream, and voila! My base makeup is ready in under a minute.
The coverage is so lightweight, and allows the skin to breathe unlike heavier makeup. It’s great for an everyday look.
And the gorgeous, versatile packaging makes this foundation my new travel BFF!
I wear the shade Tan 66.
