Last month we wanted to achieve Kylie Jenner’s look, but this month it’s all about Kendall. Kendall Jenner tends keep her look nude and understated, perfect for every day make up. Because this look is not high maintenance, it can also be very affordable.
To begin, use a liquid foundation such as Revlon’s Nearly Naked (RRP £8.99) and blend with a beauty blender, brush or your fingers, for flawless looking skin. Then, apply bronzer, like Avon’s Ideal Luminous Shimmer Block (RRP £4.50), just beneath the cheekbones to add a polished glow. This is an optional step, but it does sculpt the face more. Add a small amount of highlighter to the top of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose – to make it look thinner like Kendall’s – on the centre of your cupid’s bow and on your chin. I recommend Benefit’s High Beam (RRP £19.50), but a powder highlighter like MAC’s Lightscapade (RRP £23.00) works just as well.
The only bold thing about Kendall’s look is her outlined eye. Line the rim of the top and bottom lid with a kohl pencil. You can buy one from as little as £1.99, from Collection. For eye-shadow you can double-up and use your bronzer palette for golden, sun-kissed eyes. Avon’s Ideal Luminous Shimmer Block is divided into five light to dark segments. Apply the second lightest colour to the top lids and underneath your eyeliner on the lower lids. Then, in the crease of the eye, add a neutral brown such as ‘Buck’ from Urban Decay’s Naked Palette (RRP £37.00), enhancing the hollow of the eyes and providing a nice contrast to your golden lids.
Next, use a liquid liner, such as Soap & Glory’s Supercat eyeliner pen in ‘Carbon Black’ (RRP £6.00). An eyeliner pen offers more precision than a brush, which is ideal for Kendall’s look. Thinly line just above the lash line and then add a little wing. To finish the eyes, use a black volume mascara, such as Bourjois Paris’s winner of the 2014 beauty awards, Volume 1 Seconde Mascara (RRP £9.99), on the top and bottom lashes.
To achieve Kendall’s pout, you only need two products. Firstly, using a nude lipliner such as bareMinerals’ Marvelous Moxie range in ‘Liberated’ (RRP £13.00), outline the shape of your lips before filling them in with the same lipliner. Kendall tends to emphasise a dip in her top lip, whereas her sister Kylie likes to draw above it, what you do depends entirely on what works for you, but for Kendall’s look go for the former. Finally, after applying lip liner, add a clear balm or butter like Rimmel’s Keep Calm and Lip Balm (RRP £2.99), to give your lips moisture and shine.
