Every Product Kylie Jenner Used in Her $450+ Vogue Makeup Tutorial

It’s odd thinking that at one point, Kylie Jenner was not a part of the beauty zeitgeist. The 20-year-old cosmetics mogul has let us follow her through transforming everything from her lips to her hair and has given us a peek into her life as a new mom. With Kylie Cosmetics positioned to be a billion-dollar brand by 2022 , it’s apparent that everything she touches in the beauty world turns to dollar bills.

Jenner went makeup-free in a 10-minute tutorial for Vogue , where she broke down her entire beauty routine. We got a look at one of the new Kylie Cosmetics eye-shadow palettes and glosses, which aren’t available online yet. Still, assuming that the new products retail similarly to her the others in her collection at $45 and $12 respectively, we’ve determined her entire look hits at around $450 of more.

The tutorial also comes with a few helpful tips. For starters, Jenner does her brows and eye shadow first (if you start with foundation, she argued, the pigment will fall from your eyes onto your cheeks), and she’s obsessed with blush – but she doesn’t just apply it to her cheeks, but to her forehead, nose, and chin, too. We also learned that the beauty mogul likes her freckles to show through her foundation, so she applies the product with a brush and then buffs it out with a BeautyBlender so it looks more natural.

Like many of us who throw caution to the wind, she puts mascara over her lash extensions, using black for the top lashes and brown for the bottom for a more subtle look. She takes the tip of her brow gel brush, which holds the most product, applies it, then brushes the gel out with the comb. Then, to finish it all off, she drenches her face in MAC setting spray so that her makeup looks its best in person.

All About Princess Diana's Signature Beauty Look, Straight From Her Makeup Artist

Since starting her makeup tutorial channel, Lisa Eldridge has been receiving requests for a tutorial inspired by Princess Diana. Admittedly, the professional makeup artist had never met the late icon and therefore felt “uneasy” about replicating her beauty look. In honor of the 20th anniversary of Diana’s untimely death , however, Lisa did the next best thing: she contacted Diana’s personal makeup artist.

In the YouTube video, Mary Greenwell spoke about her experience as Diana’s makeup artist. “I was so privileged to do her makeup for a few years before her untimely passing,” she said. “Now, she was an icon. Actually, even in her passing, is an icon. We all loved her so much.”

On Diana’s makeup preferences, Mary said she always kept it “very, very simple.” Mary admitted that makeup has changed quite a bit these past two decades, so she slightly updated Diana’s signature look for the purposes of the tutorial.

As you can imagine, working with Diana was a life-changing experience for the makeup artist. Mary said, “Her skin was immaculate – beautiful, gorgeous skin.” Adding, “She was so appealing . . . She was so sexy without meaning to be.”

At the start of her tutorial, Mary prepped her model’s skin, applied Laura Mercier’s Foundation Primer ($38), and then YSL’s Fusion Ink Cushion Foundation – which is unfortunately not widely available in the United States. As an alternative, try Lancôme’s Cushion Foundation ($47).

For the eye makeup, Mary applied a subtle highlighter underneath the brow bone and created a purple smoky eye using a drugstore eye-shadow palette only available in the UK. She then added brown eyeliner to the lash line and blended it out with a precise brush. Mary finished the eye makeup with several coats of mascara, as she would “never have used false eyelashes on Princess Diana.” On the eyebrows, Mary simply used Tom Ford’s Fiber Brow Gel .

Though contouring was not a makeup phenomenon during Diana’s time, Mary applied what she calls a “relaxed” version of the technique. Mary blended very light contour just under each cheekbone, then applied just a little highlighter onto each cheekbone. Since Diana loved suntanning, Mary did add a good amount of bronzer using the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit ($80) in Surreal Light. She finished the look with a light salmon pink lipstick.

Reflecting on the finished look, Mary said, “This was all inspired by the beautiful Lady Diana. I can’t thank her enough for allowing me to be in her life.” Watch the touching tutorial in its entirety, above.
