Kat loves makeup. Her younger self loved to try everything and indulged in over-powdering her face with a chalky, white powder. Notwithstanding this faux pas, she would not change her experimental side. This beauty queen tends to prefer drugstore over high end because she has the habit of reserving the “fancy” items for “special occasions” and they eventually go bad.
Brands that send Kat PR boxes or have done so in the past include Rituel de Fille, La Mer, Glossier, Lisa Eldridge.

Kat’s beauty idols
In 2015, Kat revealed to Byrdie magazine who her beauty idols are: Katharine Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Anjelica Huston — and even Eddie Vedder. With the help of hairstylist Gregory Russell and makeup artist (and personal friend) Rachel Goodwin, she then transformed into these references in an editorial through the lenses of Olivia Malone.
“Katharine Hepburn obviously was one of the earth’s most inspiring female movie stars. When I was a young girl, I watched a lot of her films and thought she was such a badass. She just has this attitude towards publicity and fame and things like that, and she just rebelled against all of it and really paved her own way in the industry with what she wore and how she looked, and I just respect that so much. And I like to wear pants, and she liked to wear pants, and I thought why not?”
“Anjelica Huston is another one of those amazing, classic beauties, classic actresses. And she’s one of the actresses that I idolized. I grew up watching the Addams Family movies and ended up going through a major young-girl goth thing, and she had probably 99% to do with that. We did a cool version of Anjelica when she was a hot babe in the ’70s, and I loved that. I kind of forgot that she was this gorgeous disco flower babe, so that was really fun too.”
“[Sophia Loren] She kind of epitomizes Old Hollywood babe glamour. She is just full-on feminine, an amazing actress, gorgeous face, and amazing body. I think, also, I am a formidable-shaped human body, so I really loved watching her films and feeling, you know, like I had somebody to dress toward, if that makes sense. Like I try to sort of get inspiration from her when I’m going to an event or something like that, just because I love her whole essence.”
Silver screen beauty queen
Jules’s makeup was the responsibility of Mary Klimek. According to Kat, the makeup artist loves to combine up to three shades per look, giving preference to Rituel de Fille products. For the Christmas episode (S01E06), we know Kat wore Lime Crime Velvetines matte liquid lipstick in the shade Red Velvet.
