Okay, yes: we’re addicted to any beauty tips the Kardashians & Co. give. But given the camera-ready state the family lives in at basically all times, each sister has picked up so much info that at this point, they’re pros themselves. And no surprise, the model among them is especially skilled at creating a glow on-set and off—according to Kendall Jenner, thank the constant proximity to the best hair and makeup artists in the world (yeah, that’ll do it). Today, she let fans in on a few of her go-to beauty tricks, and the way she uses bronzer will kind of blow your mind.
Running Vogue through her whole makeup routine—all of two minutes and six seconds, down from Khloe’s 20 minutes and Kim’s [how many hours she has available that day]—the tips came out fast and furious. Starting with Esteé Lauder’s concealer, she dotted it all over, then patted it in with her finger. Pretty straightforward, as is her brow routine: a quick brush up and fill-in sitch, with a quick story detour into adolescent eyebrow plucking trauma (relatable). And then arrives the moment you’re going to want to rewind—she takes her bronzer and a fluffy brush, and pinches the brush to make it even thinner.
Cheeks sucked in, she dusts bronzer with the brush in the hollows below her cheekbones, down her neck, and behind her ears (another signature Kar-Jenner trick, it’s certainly excessive, but since they’re photographed from literally every angle it makes a ton of sense). It’s a simple but helpful trick for concentrating your bronzer exactly where you want it, which is crucial for face-defining and those of us who don’t own a different brush for every need. And the bronzer wasn’t done yet: Kendall swept it on as eyeshadow too, for even more warmth all over. She added mascara and a few dabs of lipstick and lipgloss, and voila, out the door.
We’ve learned so much, but the best is still to come. Looking at her (perfectly fine) low bun, she said, “Honestly, this is as good as it’s going to get for my hair. I’m not a great hairstylist.” Was she referencing the iconic *Princess Diaries* scene? There’s no way to be sure, but we can hope.
