The Only Professional Makeup Artist Program with a Cause
“After years of dreaming, I’m thrilled to announce that our Pro Program is finally here. From the beginning, my goal was to create a program that would inspire you, connect you to others and help make artistry cruelty-free.”

San Francisco, CA (March 1, 2018) – Kat Von D Beauty has long been a go-to for professional makeup artists to create high pigment, long-wearing looks. Now, Kat Von D is on a mission to make professional artistry cruelty-free by introducing the Kat Von D Beauty Pro Program, the only pro program with a cause.
Beginning March 1, 2018, makeup artists - students and established, alike - are invited to apply for membership in this exciting program. All accepted Pro Program members will receive an exclusive membership card and 30% discount on every product purchased on Katvondbeauty.com, so they can fill their kit with their favorite Kat Von D Beauty products, like Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, Lock-It Foundation, Tattoo Liner, and the Shade + Light Contour Palette. The first 5,000 Pro Program charter members will be rewarded with a luxe, limited edition welcome box featuring exclusive swag and two full-size artistry essentials (Tattoo Liner and Lock-It Concealer Crème in White Out).
With a Pro Program this special, you can be sure Kat added extra surprises! Kat Von D Beauty Pro Program membership benefits include:
- 30% discount on all Kat Von D Beauty products purchased through Katvondbeauty.com
- Pro-only products and early access
- Free US & International shipping to 123 countries with no minimum
- Exclusive access to unforgettable members-only experiences
Pro Program members will also play an active role in helping make artistry cruelty-free: with every Pro order, Kat Von D Beauty will donate to an animal rights charity. In 2018, Kat has selected Mercy For Animals as charity of choice. Mercy For Animals, a cause close to Kat’s heart, is an international non-profit animal advocacy organization dedicated to preventing cruelty to farmed animals and promoting compassionate food choices and policies.
“I’ve learned so much from them (Mercy for Animals) about how awesome and important becoming vegan is—for the animals, for humanity, and for the planet! The delivery of the message is smart, informative, honest, direct, and easy to follow. It speaks not only to the vegan community, but more importantly, to the non-vegan world.”
– Kat Von D
