Forget diamonds, Gorgeous skin is really a girl’s best friend! Especially for a celeb who is constantly photographed and filmed – it’s their job to put their best face forward.
Ever awed by how your favorite star slathers her go-to products? We always wonder how our favorite celebs look so flawless. So here we are breaking down how Kylie Jenner, one of the most favorite, hottest celeb and beauty entrepreneur steals the show, the products she uses and pro tips by her.
Kylie Jenner is many things but low maintenance is not one of them. The 20-year-old makeup junkie is often found posting her makeup routines over snapchat (her user id: kylizzlemynizzl) and her app, meticulously describing step by step, her “everyday glam” and the product she uses.
Step 1. Base:
Just like most of us, Kylie starts by moisturizing her face to which no specifics were provided by her. She likes to experiment with this one.
Then she goes on to mixing two foundations – Makeup Forever HD Foundation and Urban Decay’s Naked Skin one & done hybrid complexion perfector as the foundation base which she blends onto her complexion using a beauty blender. She uses her selfie light to make sure everything is blended properly.
Pro Tip: She recommends using natural light by your window if you do not possess a selfie light; to make sure all is good in the hood.
Step 3. Brows:
Next she fills in her brows; usually she uses Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in medium brown but this time she’s using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in caramel. She likes to keep it low and go for soft- natural brows for her everyday glam.
Pro tip: If you ever color it too dark, don’t you fear, brush it through.
After filling in her brows, she uses Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealing Crème to define her brows by applying a thin line under her arch and blending it all in and over the arc she uses the same foundation mix which was used earlier.
Step 4. Shadow base:
Then she sets her eye lids with Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder prepping it for eye shadows.
Step 5. Eye Shadow:
Moving on Kylie applies a brown eye shadow onto her lids, the brand name was not mentioned but you can go for a brown shade from Maybelline New York the Nudes Palette or any other will do the trick. She then applies a darker shadow along her lash line as her liner, and blends it in. Kylie also adds a bit of brown shadow underneath her eye for extra definition.
Step 6. Concealer:
Now, onto the concealer! Kylie uses NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer under her eyes, into the corners, her T-zone area, Cupid’s bow and her nose to define and cover up any imperfections using a dampened beauty blender to blend everything and avoid any harsh lines.
Pro tip: Kylie shared a tip from her celebrity makeup artist and pal Mario Dedivanovic AKA MakeupByMario (check out his works on instagram), who recommends you always wet your beauty blender to set your powder so that it “doesn’t look cakey.”
Step 7. Setting powder:
Kylie bakes her face with Laura Mercier Translucent Powder (proven to be one of her favorite products!) but also mentions she doesn’t bake for too long. Later she sets the rest of her face with Chanel’s Double Perfection Lumiere Powder.
Step 8. Contour:
She uses the cult classic Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer for a light contour to her face.
Step 9. Brow Gel:
Next she sets her brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel.
Step 11. Blush:
To add a natural flush, Kylie uses Sephora’s Colorful Face Powder in Passionate Contour on her cheeks.
Step 12. Mascara:
Time for the lashes! Kylie curls her lashes using a lash curler and then applies a coat of Lancôme’s Oscillation Vibrating Infinite Power mascara giving her a very natural look.
Pro Tip: for her bottom lash she uses brown mascara which gives her a softer look, which was a beauty tip from her friend Patrick starrr.
Kylie lines her lower waterline with Sephora’s Colorful Shadow & Liner, and mentions that she loves the soft color.
Pro Tip: She uses a Q- tip to fix and softly blend out mascara in case you got some on your lids after doing your eye shadow.
And it wouldn’t be a Kylie Jenner makeup tutorial without a mention of her lip kit. So to finish off, she uses the Kylie Cosmetics Candy K Lip Liner to fill her lips and applies all over. She also mentions about always using her gloss over her liner.
She uses Becca Jaclyn hill Champagne pop highlighter to highlight her cheeks
Now all you got to do is to make sure you follow all the steps and achieve this soft everyday Kylie look. Also you can use the same products or any other brands which you like in similar shades.
