Build your career without sacrificing your life.
As I was scrolling through my Facebook timeline recently, I realized that Kat Von D makeup was everywhere! I loved her style, and I knew that I had to team up with her brand. So, I signed up as a Kat Von D affiliate marketer, and ta-da! Now, I’m advertising her brand, and getting discounts on her makeup. If YOU want to know how to do the exact same thing, keep reading, as I’m going to drop a guide at the bottom of this post, but you don’t want to miss out on the beautiful makeup I’m about to show you!
Kat Von D goes above and beyond your average makeup brand. She makes makeup personal. She offers vegan products to suit the needs of her environmentally-conscious fans. She encourages her customers to upload photos of their makeup routines that include her products. She’s created more than gorgeous shades of lipstick and eyeliner, she’s created a community of makeup-lovers and positive vibes. She alludes to this fact in her “About” section of her website, which reads as follows:
“If you had asked me when I was a child, running around barefoot in Mexico with dirt under my fingernails and frogs in my pockets, if I could have foreseen this wild makeup adventure becoming a reality, I probably would have laughed in your face in disbelief! People often tell me, "Having your own makeup line must be a dream come true!" But the truth is, never in a million years did I ever imagine I’d be here celebrating all these wonderful years of beauty with you all! When Sephora approached me about creating a makeup line back in 2008, my goal was to come up with the four most perfect shades of red lipstick. Fast-forward to today…Kat Von D Beauty has grown into such a big and beautiful monster that it’s easy to lose count of the shade range now! And to me, that makes every day BETTER than a dream. To me, every day is a gift, and I am beyond excited to share this gift with all of you. Together with my team, we have created something so special and unique in the makeup world. Kat Von D Beauty is a creative outlet for everyone, from beginners to pros (and even to makeup-junkies like myself). It is my belief that Art is one of humanity’s most powerfully redeeming qualities. If I can continue to come up with these tools that inspire people to create, I am more than happy to do so! There is no aspect of the makeup line that I have not been creatively involved with, and this is something that I am proud of. I take part in everything from product development, personally testing formulas, naming the shades, packaging design and artwork layout, to the lettering you’ll find on every fixture at Sephora! When I commit to being a part of something, my ultimate goal is to have an intention behind everything. Quality over Quantity. Less is More. When in doubt, throw that shit out! But in all reality, if you want to know who Kat Von D Beauty is, all you gotta do is look in the mirror. We are bold, unapologetic, outspoken and different in our own way. We are artists, poets and lovers. We are the outsiders and the insiders. We are Kat Von D Beauty. With Love, KvD.”
Kat Von D aspires to release products that are not only functional, but simple to use, and more beautiful each time you crack it open. There is an entire “How-To” section on the website, so no fan feels left out, and all of the beauty techniques featured on the website are attainable for the average person to perform. You’ll also notice that it isn’t difficult to find the names of the collaborators. Kat Von D makes sure to credit the individuals that make her incredible creations possible! This is something that brands tend to overlook, but consumers are wising up to the fact that brands who treat their employees right are more likely to care about their customers, as well.

Now, if you’re wondering how I’m getting up to an 8% discount on all of my purchases, and getting a little extra pocket cash by telling people about my favorite makeup brands, then I’m ready to introduce you to the wonderful world of affiliate marketing! Affiliate marketing can be better explained by my affiliate disclosure. If you decide that you would like a discount on EVERY order of Kat Von D Makeup, and numerous other brands (you would be surprised how many opportunities are out there!), then you can do some research of your own, or you can put my 3+ years of online marketing and affiliate marketing experience to work for you by ordering my new e-course, “How to Become a Successful Freelance Writer While Going to School or Work Full-Time”. Obviously, you won’t be focusing on writing, but there is an entire chapter on affiliate marketing, and most of the freelancing tips apply to any industry you work in as an online freelancer.
