Kendall Jenner definitely has big shoes to fill in the beauty world. Even though she’s the face of Estée Lauder, the second-youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan admits that her older sisters know all the tricks. Even Kylie, the youngest of the family, is paving the way with her own makeup line. But Kendall is all about the subtle, natural look, and she’s letting us in on her secrets.
1. Don’t overdo the skin treatments
Jenner’s sensitive skin allows for only a few products. “I don’t like to do too much to my skin. I feel like the more I do, the more confused it gets,” she told Glamour. “I wash my face with a gentle cleanser in the morning and before I go to bed.” She also puts on sunscreen every day.
2. Go to bed with a fresh face
“I can’t go to bed not fully clean. I would never even let my friends get into my bed with their makeup on,” Jenner told Glamour. The pay-off? Clear skin and voluminous hair. Jenner says her best hair trick is “showering before bed, then sleeping with wet hair. When you wake up, it has that bumpy look to it. I love that.”
3. A spray tan goes a long way
When Glamour asked what Kendall’s “glow hack” is, she admitted that it’s all about that faux tan—”Oh my God, it makes me look so much better.”
4. And whatever you do, don’t over-pluck your eyebrows
Sometimes, less is more. “One time I used one of those vanity mirrors, the close-up magnifying kind, and plucked literally all of my eyebrows off. Khloé yelled at me: ‘You can’t touch your eyebrows until they fully grow out!’ It was so not cute; I was mortified. Once my brows started to grow out, she took me to my first eyebrow lady. Now I just fill them in with an Estée Lauder pencil.”
Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy lipstick in ‘Carnal’
Kendall is known for her love for bold red lips, and ‘Carnal’ from Estee Lauder is one of her favourite go-to shades!
Estee Lauder Pure Colour Matte Sculpting lipstick in ‘Restless’
Another red that Jenner switches between is also from Estee Lauder (I’m sure that has nothing to do with the fact that she’s their cover girl.. right?) in the shade ‘Restless.’
Urban Decay Naked 3 palette
This one came as a surprise considering she usually sports a warm eye, but apparently Jenner loves the Naked 3 when it comes to eyeshadow palettes. Then again since the shades are quite subtle and natural is seems fitting that she would gravitate to that shade range.
Huda Beauty lashes in ‘Alyssa’
While Kendall usually sports individual lashes more often than not on the red carpet, when she does wear strip lashes they are usually the style ‘Alyssa’ by Huda Beauty!
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
How does Kendall get her flawless yet natural looking skin? By using the iconic foundation from Giorgio Armani of course! This stuff comes with a decently steep price tag but it is definitely worth it.
Marc Jacobs #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder
Finally, for her contour Kendall often favours the Marc Jacobs contour powder duo for a natural contour that leaves her features defined but not over done!
