Makeup Tutorial: How to Make Kat Von D Foundation Work for Dry Skin
Today I’m sharing a makeup tutorial on how to make Kat Von D Foundation work for dry skin. The Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation has an amazing shade range, but it’s definitely easier for normal to oily skin to wear. People with dry or very dry skin, like me, struggle to apply this foundation without having it cake up and cling to dry patches.
The Kat Von D Foundation is a very full coverage foundation. It’s made to conceal all flaws and last all night long. It’s too full coverage for my needs, but I can appreciate that other people need that sort of coverage.
In a last ditch effort to make the Kat Von D Foundation work for my dry skin, I tried mixing it with Nyx Pro Foundation Mixer in Opalescent. The first 5 ingredients in Opalescent are Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Caprylyl Methicone, and Talc. The first 5 ingredients in Lock-It are Water, Dimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, and Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate. They’re both silicone-based, so they mix together without any issues.
Mixing the two together makes it workable for me. It doesn’t cling to my dry patches. It adds a subtle iridescence and sheen to my skin so that it’s not full coverage and flat. The foundation is more of a light-medium coverage, which is perfect for my needs. I want to blur imperfections and hide my redness from rosacea. This mix makes it possible. I can then conceal with a bit of L1 Neutral.

You can see how well the foundation blends in with my skintone. I forgot to put a primer on for this video, but it looks amazing with Urban Decay Optical Illusion Primer. I hated how my blush looked, so I tried layering multiple blushes. While the Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff blended out great on the back of my hand, I didn’t like how it looked on my cheeks, so I layered other blushes on top. Now, that highlighter though, I love it so much! Doesn’t it look amazing?
