Pop Star Dev, best known for her hit singles “In the Dark” and “Like a G6” was recently named a brand ambassador for the new CK One color cosmetics line which is sold exclusively at Ulta. Dev was in Chicago meeting with fans at Ulta Beauty on State Street prior to her performance at Lollapalooza and we had the opportunity to meet with her backstage to find out more about her beauty tips and tricks – and what it is like to perform on stage!
Dev is a great spokesperson for CK One color cosmetics. She has a combination of edgy and fresh looks and a sweet, very down-to-earth demeanor. She was very humble and amazed about performing at Lollapalooza among great names like The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Florence + The Machine among others. In the press room she was asked about how to not turn into a hot mess when she performs on stage – and she credits CK One 3-in-One makeup as one way to stay looking fresh. She also likes to play up her eyes on stage, and prefers CK One shadows and liners because she can easily change colors and looks. I asked her if she liked Calvin Klein fashions and if she felt the line was a good fit for her when she was asked to be a brand ambassador for the beauty line. She said she was familiar with the brand and liked that it is classic but a little bit edgy, too. Dev’s top style-influencers are her mother and sisters, Hells Bells (clothing line), and Karen O.
After Dev told us about her favorites it was time to check out the line for myself!
First of all, the packaging of the CK One line is chic, and has added features, like a little twisting shut off valve for the pump of this makeup. CK One 3-In-One Makeup leaves such a nice matte finish and it’s a serum, primer and face makeup all in one.
The CK One mascara wand twists so you get 2 brushes in one, straight for long or twisted for fluffy lashes. The formula is smudgeproof and gives you lush lashes. Now I know why Dev likes to wear it onstage – and every day.
CK One Mascara, $18
The CK One eyeshadow quads swivel to open and the pigments go on smooth. There is a wide selection of gorgeous shades available from brights to gem tones to neutrals.
The CK One Bronzer Duo offers the option of a creme or a powder. This bronzer is perfect for contouring and giving you a little added natural color at the same time.
CK One Bronzer Duo, $25
