14+ Kylie Jenner Beauty Facts That'll Make You Say, 'Whaaa?'

Diply 4 Sep 2018

Hi, welcome to an article about Kylie Jenner, in which we are going to explore all the things she's done in the name of beauty.

Love her or hate her, none of us can stop talking about her and her famous sisters (you know, those Kardashian ladies), so we may as well lean in and see how the other half lives.

Or, like, the 1%.

Anyway, I may be here to lay some weird stuff out, but let it be known that my jealousy at someone being a billionaire in her early 20s is real, okay? Just take it in.

1. She can't leave the house without lipstick.

In an interview for Vogue Australia that was conducted by her sister, Kendall, Kylie revealed the roots behind Kylie Cosmetics, as well as her lipstick addiction. Kylie told Kendall: "Something I just became obsessed with was lips and lipstick, and how wearing lipstick made me feel. I just loved bigger lips, and I just got obsessed. To this day, I can’t leave the house without lipstick."

2. She puts blush all over her face...

I repeat: She puts it ALL OVER her face.

In a video for Vogue, Kylie broke down each step of her "simplified" makeup routine. Amongst the standard makeup stuff we all do are some odd outliers, like her tendency to put blush on her cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. Basically, it goes all over her face. While that sounds a little nuts, it does explain why she always seems to glow.

3. ...and can line her lips with her eyes closed.

Admit it. You can't do that. Okay, I can't do that, and now I super want to try it and see how much of a clown I end up looking like afterward. ANYWAY. After laying down some chapstick, Kylie fills in her lips entirely with lip liner. The routine and movements are so familiar to her that she can do it with her eyes closed!

4. Her whole beauty routine takes a minimum of 37 steps.

According to Cosmo, Kylie goes from chapstick to full daytime glam in 37 steps. I say daytime because Kylie says that her routine creates more of a simple look. My version of a simple look is putting concealer under my eyes and praying my brows stay in place, but to each their own. Call me, Vogue.

5. Her beauty obsession made her the youngest self-made billionaire.

Kylie has certainly had a lot of help along the way — being born into the world of the Kardashians definitely has its perks — but she undeniably has an empire that few can rival, despite what critics say. At 21, Kylie is worth over $900 million and shows no signs of slowing down.

6. Her daughter helped her with her insecurity.

Kylie has learned to embrace herself as she is so that she can pass that self-love onto her daughter, Stormi. She told Vogue Australia, "I want to be an example for her. What kind of example would I be if she said she didn’t like her ears, and then I didn’t like them either? I just want to teach her that. I’m trying to love myself more."

Okay, that's pretty damn cute.

7. One of Kylie and Stormi's most iconic moments was memorialized with nail art.

Insta-famous nail artists Arina and Eleonora Movsisian recreated the look. While the reviews were mixed, I'm sure Kylie and Stormi can both agree that the Russian duo is talented AF.

8. She doesn't wear makeup if she doesn't have to.

As surprising as that sounds from a makeup mogul, it makes a lot of sense. Kylie's 37-step routine reportedly takes her 2+ hours, so she usually opts to skip it and just go au naturel. Considering her natural look is absolutely stunning, I'm gonna go ahead and say I would do the same thing. Makeup takes time, and a new mom needs all the sleep she can get.

9. She's obviously had lip fillers...

After much suspicion, Kylie admitted in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she had her lips filled. Says Jenner, "I didn’t want to be a bad influence. I didn’t want people to think you had to get your lips done to feel good about yourself. But they thought it was crazier that I was lying about it because it was so obvious. I wish I had just been honest and upfront."

10. ...but has since had them removed.

In an Instagram comment on her own post, Kylie revealed to a fan that she had her lip injections removed. After over five years of having them, seeing her natural lips come back is refreshing AF. She's been rocking the more natural look (well, in terms of her lips) recently, and I'm all for it. Work with what you've got (if that's what you're into, this is a judgment-free zone).

11. She wore hair that costs more than my rent for six months.

Like, just a casual night out, rocking hair extensions that cost between $6000 and $8000. It was real human hair from Russia, according to extension artist Violet Teriti, and actually didn't need dyeing or touch-ups at all. Kylie rocked the hella long pony for her 21st birthday and slayed while doing it. Hot moms are the trend of the 21st century, people. Get into it.

12. She has a YouTube channel.

Used exclusively for launching new products, showing off swatches, and giving fans a sneak peek behind the scenes of the company, Kylie's YouTube channel has over 800,000 subscribers — and it's only a year old. Go check out her video with her best friend, Jordyn Woods, or get a peek at her mom's collection photoshoot!

I definitely wanna be rich enough one day to make my mom a makeup line. FOR YOU, MA!

13. Oh, and speaking of Kris...

YouTube | Kylie Cosmetics

Kylie handed over the reigns to Kylie Cosmetics in the summer of 2018 to her mom and Momager, Kris Jenner. Kris launched her own collection with Kylie Cosmetics for Mother's Day, including an eyeshadow palette (with shade names like "Does It Come In Black" and "I Love Myself"), a face palette, a lip set, a lip liner, and a liquid lipstick. Basically, I listed it all so that I can ask for it for my birthday.

14. She's also collabed with Khloé and Kourtney...

The sisters never go far from one another when it comes to business, so it's no surprise that Kylie has collections with both Khloé and Kourtney. Kourtney's collection is more summer and beachy, while Khloé's is all gold and glam. Called Kourt x Kylie and Koko Kollection respectively, Kylie keeps her sisters' collections in stock and in demand.

15. ...and, of course, Kim

The Kim and Kylie collaboration really was inevitable, though Kim's collection is certainly smaller than the rest. At only four liquid lipsticks, the KKW x Kylie Cosmetics collection is only available as a bundle.

16. She and Kendall once earned $100k from OPI in a day.

All the girls had to do was attend a one-day photo shoot and let OPI name a nail polish line after them. Kardashian Kolor launched on OPI's sister brand, Nicole by OPI, with 10 shades inspired by the whole Kardashian clan. The sisters each took home $100,000. Kylie was just 13-years-old.

I am 28 with a shoebox full of expired nail polish, and Kylie was 13 when her first beauty collection came out. Yeesh.
