6 things we learned from watching Kylie Jenner do her makeup
We always assume that the Kardashian-Jenner family is flanked by a glam squad at all times, but Kylie Jenner has just proved us wrong. The 20-year-old has filmed a makeup tutorial for Vogue and reminded us exactly why she's the owner of the makeup empire that is Kylie Cosmetics.
Kylie explained in the video that she had “some meetings” on that day so was going to keep her look fairly simple. But we’re talking Kardashian-Jenner simple (aka nearly 40 steps).
Here are our highlights from Kylie Jenner's Vogue makeup tutorial…
#1 She does her brows & eyes first
Kylie is a fan of doing her eyeshadow before her foundation to stop any fallout. First and foremost though, Kylie fills in her brows before applying concealer below her brows and over her eyelids. She then dusts powder over her lids to set the concealer before busting out the eyeshadow palette. She then wipes any excess shadow off her face with a makeup wipe.
#2 She uses a powder sunscreen
After applying her base (four pumps of foundation mixed with one pump of a liquid illuminator and a mix of pink and “beigier” concealers) Kylie dusts on a powder SPF.
#3 She loves "baking"
After doing a little bit of contouring with her bronzer, Kylie bakes. She applies a thick layer of powder over her jawline and in the hollows of her cheeks before leaving it there for a few steps and eventually dusting it off again.
#4 She can apply lip liner with her eyes closed
Kylie can literally line her lips without looking. And it's perfect. She also likes to fully colour her lips in with her liner (a trick that Beyonce also loves).
#5 She uses two shades of mascara
Kylie goes for black mascara on her top lashes (Diorshow Black Mascara) and brown on her lower lashes to look more natural.
#6 She goes to town with blush
Kylie’s favourite part of her makeup routine is applying blush and you can tell. She applies it to the apples of her cheeks and also to her forehead, nose and chin. “Drowning in blush right now” she laughed at the end of the tutorial. “But it just makes me feel like my whole look is complete.”
