Love her or loath her, we all know that Kylie Jenner's beauty secrets are the words on everyones lips. From her blue hair, to cornrows, to her flawless make up and contouring game; if Kylie does it, it's guaranteed to be tomorrows trend! This girl flaunts a variety of looks with confidence and so she should, it seems there is yet a look that this beauty junkie can't pull off! From her subtle nude palettes, to her more vibrant splashings of red, pink and purple this girls forever keeping us on our toes. Now we don't think it's fair for one girl to have all the fun, that's why we've decided to share Kylie's make up bag secrets so you can recreate her looks too.
Kylie Jenner Nudes and Natural Look
The most important part of the base is the preparation. Ensure the face is clean by using a cleanser. We recommend 'NARS Skin Purifying Foam Cleanser' Then apply your primer all over your face focusing particularly on your pores. Your primer creates a smooth velvety base for your make up helping it stay set for longer whilst minimising your pores and any additional flaws (yes we all have them!) We recommend 'Météorites' Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer' Now it's time to apply a medium to full coverage foundation. Try to get this as close to your natural skin tone as possible. Kylie loves Mehron's collection and uses Celebré PRO-HD a theater make-up foundation adored by industry professionals retailing at only £8.90. This foundations great as it contains both aloe vera and pomegranate which not only soothes and hydrates the skin but leaves your skin smelling amazing too. We then suggest that you fix your base with MAC's Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder . Now we come onto the highlighting and contouring game. A key part of Kylie's signature look. Kylie uses Anastasia Beverly Hills in shades Fawn and Havana to create contoured and sculptured definition in her cheeks. Then apply your 'Anastasia Beverly Hills' highlighter in shades Banana and Vanilla to your temples, bridge of the nose, top of the cheek bone and chin before using your beauty egg to blend everything in.
First start by taking your golden, cream based eye shadow and apply to the entire eyelid, this creates a smooth base colour for your eye lids. Kylie's favourite combination is Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Base Shadow in 12 Copper Gold £15 topped with a coating of a gold metallic eye shadow, Kat Von DMetal Crush Eyeshadow in Thrasher, which creates this beautiful shimmery finish! To really set this look off, apply your favourite bronzer in the crease of the eye and on the lower lash line. We love Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder! Now onto achieving the perfect winged cat eye. Start by using your Benefit - They're Real Push-Up Eyeliner, to map out a line with little dots so that you're able to see where your wing will end. Then starting from the very inner corner of your eye, draw a thin line across the top of your eyelid and connect the dots you mapped out earlier. Now you've achieved the perfect and envied cat eye it's time to finish with your lashes. It's no secret that Kylie's the Queen of a pair of falsies! Lashes like that don't come from a mascara wand no matter how good the mascara maybe or how good you are at applying it!. Her favourites are Huda Beauty 'Alyssa' Eyelashes which are easily applied by coating the thin black strip of the lash with the adhesive glue provided within the box. Leave to dry for 30 seconds before gently applying as close to the eyelash line as possible. (Aim for the ridged line just above the lash line.) Finish off your lashes by applying a couple of coats of 'Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara' to both your top and bottom lashes!
Kylie's currently a massive fan of Anastasia's products when it comes to maintaining her brow game. First define and shape your brows using Brow Wiz Pencil before filling them in with Brow Powder in a soft shade of brown.
Kylie's lips are easily one of her most iconic features envied by all who's yet to know her secrets! Her most loved brand is easily MAC Cosmetics where she's dictated worldwide sell-outs of her favourite shades Spice, Boldly Bare and Whirl which retail at £13.95 each. Psss... Want to know a secret? Kylie only uses lip liner and will use lip liner as her lipstick! Now that secrets out I think it's time we told you how to apply it. Taking your lip liner of choice, slightly over line your natural lip line by tracing just slightly above the natural edge of your lips. Once the initial outline has been drawn, slightly thicken your pout along your bottom lip. Once happy, fill in the remaining lip layering up until satisfied with the final colour!
Kylie Jenner Champagne Pinks
To achieve this look begin using both the Face and Brow tutorials from Look One!
First start by taking your snow, cream based eye shadow and apply to your entire lid, this creates a smooth base for your colour. Then take a small angled brush and apply the same creamy shadow to the inner corner of the eye working your way out along the bottom lash line. This really opens up your eyes! Kylie uses her Make Up Forever Aqua Cream Base Shadow in Snow retailed at £15. Then using your Make Up Forever Aqua Cream Base Shadow in Peach, begin applying from the very inner corner of the eye gradually working your way up the eye lid to just under the brow. Again taking a small angled brush apply the Peach Eyeshadow under the eye lid gently blending with the previously applied Snow shadow. Kylie finishes off this cute pink sparkly look by applying her Champagne Pink - Estee Lauder eyeliner to the corner of her eyes to add some extra sparkle! It's no secret that Kylie's the Queen of a pair of falsies! Lashes like that don't come from a mascara wand no matter how good the mascara maybe or how good you are at applying it!. Her favourites are Huda Beauty 'Alyssa' Eyelashes which are easily applied by coating the thin black strip of the lash with the adhesive glue provided within the box. Leave to dry for 30 seconds before gently applying as close to the eyelash line as possible. (Aim for the ridged line just above the lash line.) Finish off your lashes by applying a couple of coats of 'Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara' to both your top and bottom lashes!
Kylie's lips are easily one of her most iconic features envied by all who's yet to know her secrets! To achieve this beautiful pinky colour we suggest Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in the shade Dusty Rose. We love how this lipstick applies liquid and dries matte. Perfect for precision!
Kylie Jenner Deep Plum Red Ombre Lips
To achieve this look begin using the Face, Eye and Brow tutorials from Look One!
We couldn't get enough when Kylie surprised us yet again by taking her statement pout one step further. This time she created this beautiful ombre effect using 2 tones of a dark berry shade. Firstly using a deep red, we suggest MAC Lip Pencil - Nightmoth, slightly over line your natural lip line by tracing just slightly above the natural edge of your lips. Once the initial outline has been drawn, slightly thicken your pout along your bottom lip. Then using a lipstick of a similar colour, apply over your entire top lip ensuring to only apply a tiny smudge to the outer corners of your bottom lip, we suggest Urban Decay - Blackmail. The next step is to apply a slightly lighter shade of red to the remaining exposed bottom lip, applying the tiniest smidge to the middle bottom part of your upper lip. We suggest Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick. Now comes the exciting part of blending the two colours seamlessly together. To do this simply use your finger and gently dab until satisfied with the final result!
