Questions & Answers for Kat Von D Lock-It Powder Foundation

Question
Do the shades match up with the Lock-It Tattoo Foundation?
I currently use Medium 54 in the liquid foundation, would I pick the Medium 54 in the powder foundation? If not which shades would be suitable for a medium olive, yellow, warmed toned complexion?

I use Light 48 in the Kat Von D Lock-It liquid foundation. I bought this powder foundation in the Light 48 because the online Sephora rep suggested it is the correct color. However, the 48 is much too dark for my complexion. I returned it today and purchased the Light 44 and it is perfect. I should add that foundations/powders do not oxidize on me, ever.

Yes, the Liquid Lock-It Foundation & the Powder correspond in color, so the Medium 54 would be perfect for you!

Question
Why isn't there a Light 42?
If the shades correspond to the shades in the liquid foundation, us pale girls are once again not catered to. Light 42 in the liquid is the only foundation pale enough for me, with enough coverage, but unfortunately breaks me out. Thought this would be great, but of course it's probably only for girls who aren't translucent. Why is it such a crime to have fair skin?

I've found the shades differ just a tad, because there are different binders and emollients to keep the compact, well, compact! SO especially on oily skin types, the shades will oxidize and become darker on the face a couple hours later. I am a L44 all year round (ask a Esthetician/MUA I keep it PALE! I'M IMMORTAL jk lol) but am a L44 also in the powder (I wish there was a L42) because it darkens on my skin after a couple of hours...but it definitely gives a matte finish and I adore all of Kat Von D's cosmetics! POINT IS: If you havean oily skin type go a shade lighter with a less dense of a brush for a light finish. If not, stick with your corresponding Lock-It Foundation shade for the compact (and travel touch-up) option Stay Fabulous <3 @ShaycrayMUA!

The shades are not really the same as the liquid. I'm light 48 in liquid and that particular shade was much much darker in the compact foundation!

I am a 42 also in winter and 44 in summer and I found light 45 powder worked pretty well in terms of my summer complexion. Hope that helps and agreed, they need to make 42 in powder form!

Will this work by itself? Or is it better over a liquid foundation? I've bought powders before and they make my skin look dry and flaky when I apply

I use this over a liquid foundation for night but daily, I just use this powder alone or over a little concealer for spot treatment. Works great!! My skin is a littler on the dry side.

Liquid Foundation tends to play well with normal to dry skin better. Powder for Oily/combination. The best way to avoid the flaky/dry look is exfoliate the skin, moisturize and apply the powder with a brush using the press/roll technique.

I use mine over a primer, and use it by itself, very build able coverage. You can use it over foundation, but if too much is put over foundation, it tends to look a little cakey

Does this powder cover acne?
I have fairly light skin and dark hair and I get bad breakouts but I don't like the feeling of a full coverage liquid foundation so I'm wondering how this powder would work for me.

I have fair skin with monthly breakouts and have been using this makeup for a few months now. I find it covers well if I apply a base layer with the sponge and go back for touch-ups with a concealer brush. For really bad redness days, I sometimes find I need an additional concealer, but it's rare.

Question
shade tone of color 53
I can use the liquid foundation in 52 or 54. I have yellow tones. What is the tone of 53 since there is no liquid foundation to match this tone? I find that 52 in the liquid for me is winter foundation and 54 matches in the summer, but 54 does not have enough yellow. Does the 53 color in powder have yellow tones? Thank you!

I use 54 in the liquid but went to Sephora to be color matched. The 53 was perfect. It has yellow undertones. I also tried the 54 but it was way too dark and orangey on me.

I purchased the Med 53 shade. It's a warm shade for those with yellow undertones. Even though the shade descriptor indicates medium - in my opinion is on the lighter side of a medium shade. It's lighter and has more yellow that Kat's LIQUID 54 shade. Hope this helps.

I would say that I am a medium/medium beige. I use medium 53 during the cooler seasons, and medium 54 during summer. The jump from 53 to 54 is huge! You go from a pale-with yellow undertones, to a bronzer, in my honest opinion. If you feel that you are on the darker side, go with 54, if you know that the winter season is coming, and your skin tone mutes a big, go with 53.

Yes, 45 is yellow. 44 is orange. I don't know in what universe would 44 be considered to have pink undertone! Definitely not in mine. I'm 42 in liquid foundation ( my skin is very fair with cool/pink undertone ), and 44 in powder is dark AND completely orange on me. Nothing cool about it.

We suggest trying out the Light 45, as the Light 44 has pink undertones. If you have a store near you, we definitely suggest visiting a Cast Member to be color matched!
