Kylie Jenner Makeup: Foundation
To create a flawless and even skin tone, Kylie likes to combine Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation with Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector. Considering she's been on screen her entire life, her foundation pick should come as no surprise. It was formulated for the camera with its second-skin texture and invisibility under a super-focused 4K lens. Combined with the sheer-coverage and vitamin-packed Urban Decay hybrid product, Kylie's got herself the perfect skin elixir.
The Dupes: NYX Cosmetics High Definition Foundation, $18 and Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer Broad Spectrum SPF 20, $10.49
While some say the $43 and $34 investments are totally worth it, we get that it might not be in your budget to rock this luxurious combination for the not-so-low price of $77. No worries, NYX Cosmetics High Definition Foundation and Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 are just as lethal of a combination. The foundation contains light-diffusing technology to make skin appear smooth and silky (on and off camera) and has buildable coverage depending on your complexion needs. While the healthy skin enhancer reduces the signs of aging with its vitamin-rich retinol treatment and SPF 20. $28.49 instead of $77 for the same radiant finish? Um, yes please.
Kylie Jenner Makeup: Application Brush
The key to Kylie Jenner's makeup is blending — blending — blending. Whether it's foundation, eye shadow or concealer — you never see a harsh makeup line on her face. To apply her foundation and blend in her concealer, Kylie reaches for her black Beautyblender Pro, which will change your life if you haven't already invested in one. Like Kylie, lightly dampen the sponge before use to help your foundation sit on top of the sponge (rather than being absorbed). Then pat and press the product into your skin.
The Dupe: Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, $6
Don't feel like dropping $20 on a sponge you'll have to toss after three months? Girl, we totally feel you. This drugstore dupe gives Kylie's budget buster a run for its money and still yields amazing results when you add a little water (and squeeze it out). The $6 sponge from Real Techniques contains rounded sides like the traditional Beauty Blender to allow for blending in foundation around the larger areas of the face. Meanwhile, the flat edge of the sponge contours around the eyes and nose, giving you the smoothest surface possible in those tricky crevices.
Kylie Jenner Makeup: Brows
When it comes to Kylie's makeup, she doesn't follow a conventional order. After throwing on her foundation, she likes to jump straight to her brows -- but for good reason. After applying the cult classic Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown, Kylie likes to line the underside of her brows with concealer. To steal her brow-popping trick, simply take a small concealer brush and paint a medium-thick line beneath your brows, making the line thinner as you near the bridge of your nose. Lightly blend the concealer by painting downwards in the direction of your eye. Keep the concealer thin as you near the bridge of your nose, and subtly pull the concealer down farther as you work your way down to the end of your brow. This cleans up the brows and adds a natural looking highlight. Finish by locking in your concealer with a setting powder, and swiping on some clear brow gel (Kylie uses the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel).
The Dupes: L'Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Definer, $8.99, Sonia Kashuk Brow Gel, $5.99 and Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer, $6.49
On fleek brows don't require a trip to Sephora, but they may require a run to the nearest Walgreens or Walmart. The L'Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Definer makes for a great dupe to one of Kylie's makeup staples, and it's almost identical to that of Anastasia Beverly Hill's. Just like the Brow Wiz, the L'Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Definer contains an ultra-fine tip (0.5 millimeters to be exact), which allows for precise hair-like strokes. Meanwhile, the spoolie brush on the opposite end of the pencil catches rebellious hairs and smoothes them back into place to keep brows looking clean and well groomed. And if the spoolie can't tame them, Sonia Kashuk's Brow Gel will. The clear gel locks brows in place without leaving them hard and heavy. Just one swipe on each brow, and you'll instantly look more put together. For defining your perfectly sculpted arches, reach for Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer; it's long-lasting and perfect for creating an even skin tone with its beautiful satin finish and skin-matching colors.
Kylie Jenner Makeup: Concealer
There is no Kylie Jenner makeup without concealer, and if you think this beauty queen limits concealer to her under-eyes (and brows) — think again. After applying her eye shadow, Kylie applies her Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in an upside down triangle beneath each eye, going all the way down to the top of her cheeks (she uses the Becca concealer under her brows). She then creates another reverse triangle in her t-zone, a line down the middle of her nose and a dot just above her lips — blending it all in with her Beautyblender. Yes, she basically paints her whole face with concealer, but that's the Kylie Jenner makeup secret to creating a clear and perfect complexion. Now we know.
The Dupe: Catrice Liquid Camouflage -- High Coverage Concealer, $5.99
It just doesn't feel quite right dropping $30 for a product the size of a lip gloss does it? (Especially if we're going to be painting a lot of our face with it.) Save more than a few bucks by turning to this Kylie Jenner makeup dupe instead. The Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer masks dark circles and redness, and won't budge throughout the day thanks to its waterproof liquid texture (Kim K ugly crying approved).
