It's no secret that over the past few years, Kylie Jenner has been taking the beauty world by storm. Since the initial release of her first Lip Kits back in 2015, she has created a makeup empire, releasing new products and shades on a regular basis, and always selling out.
Although she took some time off to enjoy pregnancy, she's been back and better than ever on social media since little Stormi's birth in February, creating a collection in honour of her daughter as well as her most recent launch with sister Kourtney.
Whether you keep up with the Kardashians or not, you have to admit that Kylie is beyond successful, and definitely knows a thing or two about makeup. If you're looking to pick up on some tips from Miss Jenner, we've compiled a list of some of her best beauty hacks! Try these out next time you're getting ready, and see how helpful they really are:
1. Place tape along your eyes when applying eyeshadow
For anyone who's been super into makeup for years, this tip may seem like a no-brainer, but if you're someone who struggles with eyeshadow, this is a super helpful tip! In the video, you'll see Kylie apply tape to the sides of her model's eyes, this is to ensure you get a clean cut line with your eyeshadow, and to prevent any fallout.
2. Use a brush instead of your fingers to apply moisturizer
We all know just how important moisturizer is; it keeps your skin looking and feeling fresh, and gives you a natural, dewy look, which is totally in right now! Most of us just apply moisturizer with our fingers, but in this video, Kylie blends it in with a brush, and claims that it feels "amazing". While she doesn't give a specific reason for this, we're thinking it's to not only prevent the spread of germs, but also blend the moisturizer in evenly, all across her face!
3. Create a totally unique colour by combining your Lip Kits
By now, we've all heard of Kylie's infamous Lip Kits. If you don't already own one, it's probably time you invest in one because the shade range is insane and the formula itself is amazing! If you own a couple of the Lip Kits, Kylie suggests that you blend them together to create a totally unique colour that's perfect for you!
4. Find the perfect combination of brown eyeshadows for you
Kylie's eyes always look stunning, whether she's rocking no makeup, or over the top, bold colours. Her favourite look, though, is a classic brown blend. Kylie's 'KyShadow' palette is an oldie but goldie, and she loves it so much because she believes she's perfected the shades of brown in it! She recommends that you find what works for you, but never be afraid to use the colour!
5. Set your under-brow highlight with translucent powder
In this super cute video with one of her best friends, Anastasia Karanikolaou, Kylie teaches us the importance of powdering underneath your brows. Most of us use powder all over our face anyways, but using it here actually helps set your concealer in place, and keeps your highlight bright and shiny all day long!
6. Bring your mascara brush closer to the skin for fuller, longer lashes
Kylie is one of those people who is blessed with amazing lashes, the rest of us are out here struggling to apply falsies every day. If you're wondering how she gets her lashes to look so luscious with just mascara, her makeup artist suggests you let your mascara wand hit the skin of your eye! Bringing the mascara right to the root of the hair is the best way to increase length and volume while maintaining a somewhat natural appearance.
