At 18, Kylie Jenner, the reality TV and social media star (33.3 million Instagram followers and counting), has already made an impression on the beauty zeitgeist. In fact, this fall she will introduce a beauty website on which she plans to offer advice and makeovers. Here, from contouring to lip filler, she holds forth on what her beauty regimen is really like away from the Instagram cameras.
We have a family dermatologist, Christie Kidd in Beverly Hills. My sister Kendall had really bad acne when she was younger, and she really cleared it up. I thought, “Well if she cured Kendall, I should start to visit her.”
I use her face wash in the morning, and my sister Khloe taught me to wear sunscreen. I use one by TiZO3. It doesn’t really smell like sunscreen, which I like, and it’s tinted. If I wake up in the morning and have to run somewhere, I’ll just put that on solo.
I use this all-natural moisturizer called Mimosa Blossom Dream Cream. I have sensitive skin and it’s super dry, so a lot of stuff irritates me. For eye cream, I love the Kiehl’s avocado eye treatment.
At night, I’ll use the Neutrogena makeup remover wipes. It even gets the waterproof stuff off. I also found these masks at Sephora that all my friends are using. I’m obsessed with them. On the shelf there are a million of them — Sephora makes them — so you can try different ones. They’re so much fun.
If I’m going to see people, I won’t wear heavy makeup. It’s not attractive on me. When you see those pictures on my Instagram, they are usually for when I’m doing a photo shoot or an interview. Every time I get my makeup professionally done, I take a photo.
I do love lashes and lip liner and a light foundation and bronzer, though. My usual go-to is the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation. You can still see my skin through it. Then I use Nars Orgasm blush. For my lashes, I like to go to CVS and explore all the falsies. I used to be obsessed with heavy lashes, but now I just want to find something super clean and light. I like the Wispies ones.
Mascara, I’ve been using Lancôme Hypnôse Drama. And Anastasia Beverly Hills has this contour kit that’s just easy, and everything is there. The woman who founded it, Anastasia Soare, also does my eyebrows. She does all my sisters’ brows. I really love the Anastasia concealer. I like my concealer to have a bit of pink in it because it brightens the area up.
If I do amp it up, I usually go for a lot of illuminator. I love to be super shiny, like that strobing trend that’s happening on Instagram. Anastasia has an awesome highlighter. I love the gold one.
I don’t really wear perfume. I use Victoria’s Secret sometimes. They have this Coconut Passion spray. But fragrances can give me a bit of a headache.
