Kylie Jenner's makeup routine is a lot of things: gorgeous, filled with lust-worthy products, and intense, to name a few. But easy to follow? Not so much.
Last week, Jenner shared her entire routine with Vogue, and YouTube star Manny MUA decided to put it to the test and re-create it for his own channel. While most of us would be left fumbling in the moments when Jenner bakes her face at warp speed or applies lip liner with her eyes closed, Manny fully manages to pull it off — and even swaps some of her hero products for more affordable versions.
As Manny points out, Jenner does her makeup in an unexpected order (she starts with her eyes then bounces around a little bit), which makes it a little confusing. But somehow, it works. Copying the Kylie Cosmetics mogul exactly, Manny starts with his brows, using the Benefit Precisely Brown Pencil to fill things in. Next, he applies Nars Soft Matte Concealer to his brow bone using a flat brush to clarify the shape, then blends it onto his lids to prime the space for eye shadow and sets it with face powder. He frames his eye using a neutral shadow shade, à la Kylie, then cuts his crease with a darker brown and blends with a golden copper color using his finger. He subs her shimmery orange for a rose gold in his tear duct, which adds a little bit of brightening highlight.
Then, it's time for the full face. He blends Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter with his foundation, and applies it with a foundation brush before blotting with a Beautyblender. He lines the top of his brows with foundation to define them even further and applies a generous amount of concealer under his eyes, on his chin, and on his cupid's bow for complete coverage. To set the look, under his eyes he uses Maybelline Fit Me Setting Powder, which he swears is a great drugstore swap for the $18 KKW Beauty version that Jenner likes. He bronzes his cheekbones, chin, and forehead, and bakes it with a Beautyblender to make sure it stays all day.
Then, Manny MUA attempts the Kylie Jenner holy grail: The eyes-closed lip liner application. Impressively, he's able to do it almost as perfectly as Kylie herself does, and tops it off with a nude lipstick and some gloss. To finish off his eyes (told you the order here was a little out of whack), Manny shades underneath his sockets with the same neutrals he used on his upper lid.
He swipes Kylie Cosmetics' Barely Legal blush on his cheeks and forehead, and contours his nose with a subtle brown shade before highlighting with a small brush for ultimate precision and blending it with his finger. Then, he brushes out his brows with some gel and sprays his full face to set. The final step is to apply a set of false lashes to achieve Jenner-level lengths.
The result, it's worth noting, is a Kylie Jenner look-alike with fluorescent orange eyes and a flawless highlight — and slightly shorter brown hair. See the tutorial in full, below:
