To see how you can sport the Kylie Jenner makeup look, here's a step-by-step guide from a video tutorial by NikkieTutorials. Enjoy!

Kylie Jenner Inspired Makeup Tutorial

by NikkieTutorials



For a Kylie Jenner look you need to take note of 3 things: eye makeup, eyelashes, and lips. So before you follow this tutorial you need matte eyeshadows in soft brown, dusty pink, and white (with pink undertones). To secure a fine wing like Kylie does, use gel liner instead of felt or pencil. You also need a dusty pink lipstick or a light brown lipstick with pink undertones. Finally, a pair of long and wispy falsies will seal your Kylie-inspired look.  

Step 1: Keep Your Eyeshadow Look Soft

Remember that Kylie's eye makeup is really soft, so remember to always blend the colours you apply. Start with a light brown shade on your crease with a blending brush and then with a similar shade, but using a more concentrated brush, apply the colour on the outer eye area and the bottom lash area. Then for the lid, take your white shade and dust it all over your lid. Soften everything out with a blending brush, highlight your inner corners, and then you're off to the next step! 



Step 2: Wing That Eyeliner

According to Nikkie make it "as thin, and small, and as cute as possible with a nice wing at the end." However, we suggest that you go with the winged eyeliner of your choice, since we all have different eye shapes, go for the one that suits you best. Just make sure you use a gel eyeliner to make it easier for you to wing it out, and to stick to that all-matte finish on your eyes. To make your eyes look bigger, apply white or nude eyeliner along your lower waterline. 



Step 3: Apply Long And Wispy Falsies

Kylie's falses eyelashes are what makes her look extra chic and glamorous. Find long and wispy eyelashes that you're comfortable and apply them as you would regular false eyelashes. But if you want to go Au Naturale, apply a lengthening and volumizing mascara to both your top and bottom eyelashes to make it look like you have falsies on. 



Step 4: Do A Little Contour

Do your face like you normally would but add a bit of contouring magic if you really want to have a similar face shape with Kylie. Add a blush that looks most natural to your skin tone and highlight the high points of your face. Don't go all out because her look is more focused on the eyes and lips.  



Step 5: Pucker Up With Lipstick

Her lipstick shade is yet to be known but it really doesn't matter because the same shade of lipstick looks different on everyone. Stick to a matte lippie of a dusty pink or pink-brown shade. Mix colours and liners just like Nikkie did in the tutorial if you wish. And if you want super full lips, don't be afraid to over-line it a bit for a puckered-up look.

“Your face should look as if you cared, and your best friend is your mirror.” - Estée Lauder


This quote resonates with me and explains my diligence and take on skincare since my teens. Till now, there is not a day I would miss my skincare routine or skip the major steps. Yet, there are still days that dullness sets in. Fast-paced lifestyle, work, travels, diet, stress and many more from the multiple roles we play.


Though makeup does wonder on the outside, it all starts with a beautiful canvas powered from within. After all, beauty starts from within.  This is in sync with the Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy where beautiful and radiant skin starts with healthy looking, well-balanced skin. And for over a decade, Estée Lauder has been unlocking the secrets of healthy, beautiful Asian skin by taking inspiration of this philosophy though the Nutritious range.

Sounds like something we all need? Indeed! So, let’s take a peek at my daily notes before I go into the details of the products. Shall we?



Daily Notes




Day 1: 

Always start with a good base. So I decided to embark on this collection with a detox (Overnight Detox Concentrate and paired it with the moisturizer (Moisture Crème). Skin feels hydrated the next morning.


Day 3: 

I remember this being a hectic day, swamped with work and errands. But skin felt energized and softer even at the end of the day. It was the third day into the detox and second day of using the emulsion. That night, I started on the Overnight Crème/Mask. The cream is intensely rich and so I decided to use it more as a booster, an overnight mask.


Day 8: 

Interestingly, my skin improvement on the 8th day was observed by my facial therapist. She asked if I have been resting very well lately as my skin seems radiant and supple! Happy dance!  I have been using all four products so far and have not felt any discomfort on my skin. In fact, I seem to see improvement on my pores too and will continue to observe the condition.


What impresses me most about this collection is how versatile it is to suit the different skin tone. Here are some of my thoughts and how I integrate them respectively into my daily routine for my combi skin.




1. Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Overnight Detox Concentrate (S$116)




Every skin needs a clean and strong base before other skincare can work its miracles. 


Thus, my pick to begin my journey of radiant, nourished skin with this intensive detox treatment. 


It is to be applied before night moisturizer as the concentrated pomegranate power works with our skin’s natural renewal cycle while we sleep. Formulated with Clay to help absorb impurities and detoxify skin, this concentrate removes toxin and help purifies accumulated damage from pollution and other aggressors.


It seems to have minimized my pores and I will continue to use this for 28 consecutive nights (as recommended at the beginning of every season) before switching it to a twice weekly booster.






2. Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Dual face Emulsion (S$92)




This lightweight lotion can be applied before or in place of the moisturizer. 


Thus, making it a versatile pick for any skin type and condition. For my combi skin of oily t-zone and dehydrated cheeks, I prefer using it in place of moisturizer in the day and layer it with moisturizer on my cheeks in the night.


It is more than a treatment lotion, this innovative dual-phase formula strengthens skin’s internal moisture barrier and leaves skin looking dewy fresh and full of radiant vitality. It also contains Ginseng which complements the high-intensity of NEW Pomegranate Complex to recharge skin with vital energy.  Skin’s radiance is instantly revived and refreshed with an energizing burst of light hydration and nutrients.


Remember to shake well before use. 



3. Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Moisture Creme (S$92)




A moisturizer for intense hydration.  


My skin feels smooth and the moisture lasts all day long. I am generally more careful when it comes to richer cream for my combi skin and do not use them daily. However, I gave it a try daily the past 8 nights and I am more than pleased with the results; smooth and plumped skin with lasting moisture. It also contains lasting anti-oxidant power which helps neutralize environmental aggressors. Makes a great addition to our routine for both day and night. 



4. Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Overnight Crème/Mask (S$106)




A night moisturizer which can double up as a sleeping mask to restore skin’s balance and infuses deep hydration and nourishment.  It helps to re-activate skin’s natural moisture defenses.  A nightly dose of this intense nutrient infusion gives a renewed, radiant and well-rested skin in the morning. As for my combi skin, I will prefer to use this more as a twice weekly booster mask in place of the Moisture Crème.



Scent and Texture






The scent as mentioned earlier can get addictive. Inspired by the exquisite essences of the South Pacific, this illuminating scent enlightens the senses. Sparkling Grapefruit, Chinese Orange and Black Currant blend harmoniously with the delicate fusion of Fresh Rhubarb, Asian Pear and Cherry Blossom. The subtle whispers of Lotus Flower and Pink orchid are softened with Fruity Musk bringing a sheer finish to this natural infusion. And the texture in all the four products absorbs easily and quickly into our skin, leaving skin feeling nourished but not sticky.



Detoxify, Neutralize and Infuse




In the span of 8 short days, I’ve experienced radiance, hydration and see a smoother and healthier skin. What impresses me most about the NEW Nutritious Vitality8 collection besides the scent and speed, is how versatile it is to suit the different skintone.


I’ve asked myself what would be my top favourite out of the four in the collection but I have no answer for it at the moment as they have each delivered individually and worked so well together to bring me radiant skin. And the mirror, shall remain my best friend.


Hope you enjoyed my little sharing as I leave you with another favourite of mine from this Power of Eight… the lid, the hidden power. The white plastic lid with a flap makes it easier to open, shorten application time and simply adds a touch to the whole experience.


Truly, a classic beauty.

A woman is the ultimate multi-tasker and it's no wonder that we've come to expect the same from our skincare. After all, if we can do at least four things at once, why can't our skincare do the same? So we're absolutely thrilled when Clinique recently announced their latest eye treatment, the new Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment. It's an advanced eye treatment that is a lightweight, oil free gel-cream perfect for all skin types. 

It is formulated to visibly brighten, lift, smoothen the creases around the eyes, and diminish fine lines to crow’s feet--while also offering offers a boost of hydration that helps repair dehydrated skin. Utilizing “smart” technology, NEW Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment is fortified with a cocktail of potent ingredients that help to keep skin calm, comfortable, and receptive to ingredient benefits.

Want to know more? Here are 4 reasons why this may be our new favourite eye treatment!

--------------------------

Goodbye, inflammation!


No one likes inflamed skin, especially when it's around the eyes (one of the more sensitive parts of our face). This eye treatment is formulated with Cladosiphon Okamuranus Extract (native to Okinawa, Japan), which make for a potent anti-irritant agent perfect for soothing skin around the delicate eye area. The addition of Algae Extract also provides exceptional anti-irritant benefits, helping keep skin soothed and calm so that it is more receptive to repair.
Plumps and repairs damage


The key to keeping your eye looking brighter, younger, and fresher is by repairing damage while plumping the skin around the delicate eye area. Clinique's Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment offers a potent cocktail of ingredients that is able to support the skin’s natural repair process while helping to eradicate the appearance of damage caused by stress, UV, and other harmful assaults. Best thing about it: the presence of Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 and Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12 in its formula help stimulate natural collagen production, which plumps skin, helping to diminish lines and wrinkles. So skin looks and feels firmer and more resilient.


Offers brightening radiance


We all love that brightening boost on the skin. The eye treatment features Plum Extract that brighten dull and fatigued looking skin, so eyes appear more awake and youthful. It's also chock-full of brightening botanicals that help restore radiance and luminosity, for a more even-toned appearance. The result: eyes that looks bright-eyed and awake.


Gives a boost of hydration



One of the key reasons why the skin around your eye may look dull and sallow is due to dehydration. When your skin is dehydrated, it pulls moisture from your skin. This stretching out your skin, emphasizing fine lines and dark circles. Clinique's Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment features Hyaluronic Acid that attracts and binds moisture to thirsty skin; while its combination of Cucumber Extract, Sunflower Extract, and Barley Extract provides a complex of super-moisturizing fatty acid based-ingredients to help keep skin perfectly hydrated.
