We are in constant awe and inspired by the talented makeup artist, photographer and Pat McGrath ambassador, Ryan Burke. So when we saw this feature he did for them (This Makeup Transformation Is WILD — But Don’t You Dare Call It “Drag”), we had to share. His work truly unique, and to get a view into how he meticulously creates these pieces of art is fascinating. For those who were lucky to catch Ryan at The Artist Summit 2017, they got personal insight into his journey as an artist, and how he comes up with his creations. Check out the full featured video from them below and we hope you and your work is as inspired as we are by Ryan’s talent.  Don’t forget to also check out the piece from the Fall 2016 issue of On Makeup Magazine we did on Ryan, Inspired: Ryan Burke.

Kat Von D’s iconic Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick just got an upgrade, with 40 new coveted reformulated shades. The new collection features a higher pigment formula that delivers a rich luxurious weightless texture, and color payoff and is 100% vegan. Kat’s goal was to create the perfect lipstick that is romantic yet edgy, and classy yet sexy in unbelievable colors.

The 40 shade range lipsticks comes in three finishes, Stain Matte, Glimmer and Metallic and not only features some timeless resurrected best-sellers, and hues from Kat’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Collection, but also the new White Out, an artistry inspired opaque white shade that can be used as a base or mix with other shades to customize lip creations for all your clients needs. Studded Kiss offers a full spectrum from nudes to bright bold pops of color for all skin tones.  “The newly reformulated Studded Kiss Creme Lipsticks are truly unlike any lipsticks out there. They are the longest-lasting lipsticks with the most insane color payoff. From the perfect nudes for any skin tone, classic reds, all the way to those weirdo-pops and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick shade faves – we have any color your heart desires!” said Tara Buenrostro, Kat Von D Beauty Artistry Collective Artist.

Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick, $19 is available now online at and January 26 at all Sephora stores. #STUDDEDKISS


From our Fall 2017 issue we focus on the kit of Jennifer Lopez’s personal makeup artist on TV show Shades of Blue, Kate Best!

Regarded as one of the most well rounded and diverse artists in our industry, Kate Best has built a solid reputation as a makeup artist/designer who is able to transition between theater, television, editorial and fashion effortlessly. Kate began her work in makeup artistry working with photographer Richard Burbridge in London and together they moved to New York where a chance meeting with Chita Rivera changed the course of Kate’s career and life. She was asked to design Chita’s Broadway show Kiss of the Spiderwoman and then went on to design other iconic Broadway shows including Into The Woods, Chicago, Sunset Boulevard and The King and I. When Vanessa Williams replaced Chita in Spiderwoman, it was a meeting that would start a 23 year client/friend relationship with she and Vanessa teaming up for films, television, touring and personal appearances. Kate’s television work includes Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, 666 Park, 24 Legacy and Shades of Blue, on which she is Jennifer Lopez’s personal  makeup artist. Her clients also include Miley Cyrus, Farah Faucett, Selma Hayek, Adriana Lima, Naomi Campbell, Gillian Anderson, Liza Minelli and Viola Davis. Her work has been published in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan and Paper and has graced the red carpet at the Emmys, Oscars, Grammys and Billboard Awards. Kate was kind enough to share her must-have products that she counts on in her diverse and unique career.
