Not only is Kendall Jenner a force to reckon with in the world of fashion—she’s walked major runways and landed a print campaign for Givenchy—the leggy supermodel’s also come into her own in the beauty department. Breaking away from her older sisters’ signature va-va-voom appeal, Jenner’s established her own niche identity: an understated mix of Audrey Hepburn classic and Ali MacGraw glamour.
In honor of her 19th birthday, we rounded up Jenner’s 10 best beauty moments. Click through to see Jenner’s decidedly un-Kardashian beauty looks, and tell us what you think about them!
At the 2013 preview for the Jenner sisters' PacSun fall collection, Kendall sported her signature center part with extra-glossy locks and subtle auburn highlights. She kept her makeup simple and sun-kissed, like the California vibe of the clothing brand.
Jenner stunned on the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards with a glossy red pout, courtesy of Kardashian family makeup artist Joyce Bonelli. She kept her center-parted hair pulled back, the better to showcase her necklace.
While the exaggerated nose ring was a bit of a departure from Jenner's sophisticated model-off-duty style, we did dig her no-makeup makeup and piecey updo topped off with a silk scarf.
At Russell James‘ Angel book launch, hosted by Victoria’s Secret, Jenner opted for loose waves, flawless matte skin, and a similarly matte pink lip.
To complement her now-infamous pelvic bone-baring dress at the Much Music Video Awards this year, Jenner paired peachy-bronze makeup with a simple black cat-eye and glossy nude lips.
Jenner attended the Teen Choice Awards this year looking like a Bond babe emerging from the ocean. Extra-bronzed skin and highlighter in the corners of her eyes perfectly matched her slicked-back, wet hair look.
At this year's MTV Video Music Awards, Jenner kept things subtly sexy with a barely-there cat-eye and matte lip, so as not to compete with a revealing sheer black top.
At the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, Jenner took her usual center part up a notch by swapping pin-straight strands for a little tousled volume. The slightly lifted 'do lent her look some understated sex appeal, while her orange-red pout popped against her textured white top.
For a press event at the 2013 IHeartRadio Music Festival, Jenner was the epitome of daytime glam in shimmery copper eye shadow balanced by a peach-nude matte lip. Her stick-straight strands had a decidedly '70s vibe.
Jenner channeled a modern Audrey Hepburn at this event, pairing a classic, matte red lip with fluttery, defined lashes and shimmery copper shadow.
