Isn’t it great when celebrity elites demonstrate that they’re just like us by giving us a glimpse into their lives, and then showing us how we can live like them, too? Yeah, that’s not quite what this is.
Kylie Jenner recently shared the ins and outs of her “Everyday Glam” beautification process with users on her app and website. And, get this, it only takes 20 minutes and thousands of dollars worth of product!
If you want to watch the video, you’re going to have to pay…both for the vid and the many, many different types of product (24 in total, but who is counting?). Nothing good in life is free, right? But we’ve got you covered, since we watched it and can now tell you everything you need to know.
So, just for us, the 18-year-old star is “going to try to do it in 20 minutes.” But don’t worry, the video tutorial has been edited down to just seven minutes. Feel free to pause it at any time to search for the right brush, or visit the bank to obtain a loan so you can afford all the product.
Jenner starts with a concoction of multiple brands of moisturizer. If there’s any method or science behind the mixture, we haven’t seen the equation.
Next, she fills in her already stellar eyebrows with a few swipes of Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Soft Brown ($27). “If you ever, like, colour it too dark,” she consoles, “don’t you fear—brush it through.”
Then comes the foundation. Another blend, which Jenner mixes together and tests on her face with “like, a blending brush or something,” from Tarte ($34). A few pumps of Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Fluid Foundation ($50) and some Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation ($41) for good measure.
Time for a quality check, which Jenner suggest you do with some natural daylight. You know, in case you don’t have a professional makeup mirror and lighting in your bathroom. “I recommend just going like in front of your window to see, like, what the daylight’s like,” she says.
After confirming that it’s “all good in the hood,” Jenner moves on to complete the foundational process with a smaller Sephora brush and some NARS Radian Creamy Concealer ($36) below her eyes, followed by some Stila Aqua Glow Perfecting Bronzer ($42.50) applied with a dry disposable sponge. She uses this instead of the damp Beauty Blender ($28) she’d usually prefer – not because it’s some beauty secret, but because, alas, she’s “too lazy” to get to the bathroom (two steps behind her) to access the faucet.
For her eyes, Jenner chooses her go-to Two Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette ($59) to start, which really does complement her natural skin tones. She then curls her “little messed up” lashes “to the gods” with a Sephora curler ($21).
Still with us? Good. Here, she adds some more bronzer—both Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow ($80) and Charlotte Tilbury Swish & Pop Blush in Ecstasy ($50) —with a MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush ($42), which she “just kinda like…[drags] into [her] cheekbones.”
Moving on to bigger things, Jenner now addresses the lips. Those gorgeous, full, Jenner lips. Using her own and yet unreleased Dolce lip liner, she makes a kissy face and starts applying, admittedly and intentionally ‘over-lining.’
To finish off the lips, she applies some of Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Magic balm ($30). Gotta have the balm.
The penultimate ingredient is the aforementioned Chocolate Bar palette, this time applied with a Sephora Pro Brow Angled Brush ($18) to “line, like the top of [her] lashes” and “wing it out a little bit.”
Finally, she sets it all with some Urban Decal All Nigher Setting Spray Duo ($36) before executing the mandatory poses to make sure it’s all perfect. Which, of course, it is.
That’s a 20-minute look for $748.50. Kylie doesn’t call out everything she uses, so it’s actually going to end up costing a lot more than that in the grand scheme of things. We’ll probably pass on this…
