KAT VON D: POLITICAL SAINT OR SINNER?

Friday, July 21st, 2017
Up-and-coming makeup artist, Gypsy Freeman, claims that she was disqualified from the national makeup competition, Saint + Sinner, sponsored by Kat Von D Beauty, for supporting President Trump in an Instagram post. According to The Kansas City Star, Freeman had been declared the winner of the contest, which included a trip to Los Angeles to attend the Kat Von D Saint + Sinner relaunch party in June, on social media; however, she was directly messaged by Kat Von D, who said that she had “drawn a personal line in the sand between myself and anyone who supports that man.”  The tattoo artist continued, “My launch party [and my brand] celebrates many things that Trump is against … And I just need you to know that I personally have a hard time with inviting anyone who would support such an anti-feminist, anti-homosexual/LGBT, anti-immigrant, and anti-climate change fascist such as Trump.”

According to the Star, evidence of the contest’s existence has since been deleted from the brand’s Instagram account and website.  The publication was able to access the contest rules in a cached version of the site.  In spite of The Star’s numerous calls, Kat Von D Beauty parent company, Kendo Holdings, declined to comment.

COMMENTS:  I switch my cleanser based on the season. For winter, something creamier like the Nuxe Comforting Cleansing Milk with Rose Petals. In the summer, I’ll use a fruit enzyme cleanser or a micellar water like Bioderma Sensibio H2O Water. I’ll also change my serum to something like belif’s Hydra Sebum Control Essence or alternate between that and a Hyaluronic Acid product.
