Contrary to popular belief, Kylie Jenner doesn’t get her makeup done every single day. The beauty queen and makeup mogul took to Snapchat yesterday to show off her 22-step makeup routine and gave us some pretty useful tips along the way.
Kylie uses two different foundations to achieve her perfect flawless finish. She mixes Make Up Forever’s Ultra HD Foundation with Urban Decay’s Naked Skin One & Done for her base. This ensures the shade and coverage are perfect for her exact skin tone.
To blend her concealer or apply powder, Kylie always wets her beauty blender. She reveals that this is a trick she was taught by famous makeup artist Mario Dedanovic, because it stops your base from looking cakey and ensures everything is perfectly blended together.
Instead of using black mascara all over, Kylie opts for a brown mascara on her bottom lashes. She does this because it makes the whole look less harsh and more natural. Kylie credits makeup artist Patrick Ta for introducing her to brown mascara, and she uses Lancome’s Oscillation mascara for every day.
Baking is pretty popular in beauty land these days and Kylie is also a big fan. If you aren’t familiar with baking, it is basically the practice of allowing your powder to set or ‘bake’ for a few minutes before blending. Most beauty bloggers suggest a minimum of 10 minutes baking time, but Kylie says she never leaves hers that long before blending.
Kylie doesn’t stress too much about making sure her contour or eye shadow is perfect first time round. She always goes back over the lines with concealer to make sure they are clean and straight.
