7 Truly Useful Beauty Tips We've Learned From Kylie Jenner
Last night, Kylie Jenner took to Snapchat (and then Instagram) to reveal her latest shocking hair transformation: vibrant, fire engine–red locks woven into braids. FWIW, the look ultimately turned out to be a wig. But either way, could there possibly be a more fitting way for the famed beauty chameleon to kick off her 19th birthday?
No matter your thoughts on Jenner, there's one thing that remains undeniable: The girl lives and breathes beauty. Her Snapchat feed is a constant stream of genius makeup and skincare tips. Every red carpet look is less predictable than the last. Her hair has been just about every color of the rainbow at some point or another. Oh, and then there are those perpetually sold-out Lip Kits.
So in honor of her b-day, we thought it only appropriate to count down some of her most valuable beauty tips. Keep reading to see what they are.
Nivea Men Post Shave Balm ($6)
We’ve definitely vouched for adopting male-geared products as our own, and Jenner agrees—in fact, her go-to primer is this moisturizing after-shave balm from Nivea.
2. Mix your foundations.
In addition to adding oil or moisturizer to your favorite foundation for a flawless-looking finish, Jenner recommends blending different hues (and even different brands) to find your perfect shade.
3. Define your arches with concealer.
Jenner is a total pro when it comes to soft, Instagram-ready brows, and her secret to defining them just so is running a brush with concealer along the bottom edge after filling them in. (Just make sure you blend well so it doesn’t look too harsh.)
Benefit Cheekathon Palette ($58)
True story: Earlier this summer, Kylie Jenner hit Sephora for a shopping spree and spent upward of $1000 almost exclusively on blush. But she’s on to something—while adding a little flush to the face often feels like an afterthought, it really does bring an entire look together.
5. Keep evolving.
”I definitely made my lips a little too big at one point,” Jenner recently admitted to Allure. The lesson: While having a beauty uniform is great, it’s always important to learn from your mistakes and adjust your routine accordingly.
Mizzi Cosmetics Lip Luxe Whipped Lip Scrub ($13)
Spoiler: It ain’t lip liner. In order for all her Lip Kit shades to look their very best, Jenner insists that giving her pout some TLC is paramount. She exfoliates and hydrates with Mizza’s Lip Luxe, an all-natural lip balm.
7. Have fun.

Whether it’s donning bright blue lips or swapping out a new hair color for every day of the week, Jenner is first and foremost always down to play around with her look. The takeaway? Go ahead and get that funky haircut, try on a graphic eyeliner look, or finally learn how to do a fishtail braid.
