She’s a dancer, singer, actress and a model. I first saw her on the big screen as Maria Bennett in Honey 2. Some of you may know her as Bonnie Bennett from The Vampire Diaries or heard her song 1991. Does this ring a bell?.. Yes you guessed it! I’m talking about the one and only Kat Graham. She recently partnered up with a big make-up brand and I had the chance to have a chat with her.
You’ve recently partnered up with Wet N Wild. How does it feel to work for a big make-up brand?
Kat: Feels incredible. Especially with a brand that I have worn for many years. It was the first brand that I got as a kid and I’ve been wearing it to this day.
What’s the story/inspiration behind working with Wet ‘n Wild?
You’ll see the inspiration when the campaign comes out. It’s all about being a fun, fearless female. I get to do a bit of big cat roars stylistically in the campaign. I felt like a fierce tiger in the ads and it’s all about girl power.
What goes into working with Wet N Wild? What is the process?
The process is how do we make something that is already edgy, cool and timeless fit all 3 of us girls that are in the campaign. There are so many fun looks you can do with Wet n Wild, we wanted to give very different looks for each of the products and I know we did it.
How long has this been in the works?
About 6 months ago and the first ad came out last month.
Which product is your favorite and why?
My favorite product would have to be their H20 liner. Really any of their liners, but I really love the actual case of their liquid eye liner. I’ve been using it for years and I always love a good wing tip.
Which products do you use to recreate the signature Kat Graham look?
I would use the liner, bright pigmented lipstick and definitely use their MVP mascara.
Where can we find your products (Europe + USA)?
Wet N Wild products should be available everywhere, from Target to Walmart, Rite Aid to Duane Reade.
What do you need to have in your make-up bag while travelling?
I travel with a lot of make-up. It would probably just be underwear and make-up anyways.
If you could wear only one lip color for the rest of your life, what would it be?
What is the best trick that you’ve learned from your make-up artist?
I am my own make-up artist and I’ve learned a fierce contour can go a long way.
Are there any other projects in the works that you’re looking forward to?
Roxbury Drive drops September 25th.
If there was one golden beauty tip you could give a girl. What would it be?
Drink lots of water. No matter how much make-up you have, it cannot cheat good skin.
You’ve read it folks drink alot of water if you want clear skin. The perfect base for make-up is healthy skin.
Kat’s new album ‘Roxbury Drive’ drops September 25th. She released two singles from the upcoming album called ‘1991’ and ‘Secrets’. These songs have a 90’s vibe to it which I absolutely love. You can pre-order the album on iTunes
