Kylie Jenner Makeup

Hey loves!

So I’ve had this huge obsession with Kylie Jenner’s makeup lately (specifically her lips). So after visiting Sephora yesterday, I found some great items! After some work, I think I’ve managed it. I’m no makeup artist (even though I wish I could be!), so this is the best shot I have! This is for all of you lovelies who want just a basic way to get a great look – Here are the simple steps and cheap items I used to get this it-

We all know Kylie Jenner has never had big lips; they were actually very small, until now!

So what her makeup artists have clearly done is when they put lipliner on her, they go just a bit above her real lip line. So i tried this! I followed my lip line of course, but i made the line thicker so it went above a bit. It made my lips look fuller and of course, bigger!

I used a $5.00 lip liner stick from Sephora, made by Sephora. The color is Radiant Rosy. My color is a bit darker than Kylie’s, so this may only be a night color. It looks really dark in the pictures, but isn’t actually that dark.

I winged out my eye liner. I usually do this on a daily basis anyway. I use Maybelline Eye Studio Gel pot eyeliner, which comes with a brush too. I’ve been using this one for years, and even after using a MAC one, this one still is the best! And only $9 at any pharmacy or supermarket!

I would have put on fake eyelashes, but I currently have no glue 😦

I put on MAC Mineralize Moisture Broad Spectrum liquid foundation NC35. This goes best with my skin color, but Kylie has pretty light skin, so if you’re trying to look exactly like her, then I would use the lightest foundation you have. I recommend any Maybelline of your choice from a drug store!

It doesn’t seem as thought she wears much blush at all, and if she does it would be almost a honey like color. I used just a little bit of very light pink blush, Estee Lauder Peach Passion, but you can use what you prefer. Another great light, pink blush that is cheap is NYX stick blush in Orchid at any drug store or supermarket!

I typically use my MAC Refined Golden bronzer, but this time I used Bronze Booster in Medium to Dark, which I bought at Walgreens.

For my eyebrows, I used this amazing Sephora Crayon Brow Pencil in Rich Chestnut, and it was only $13!

Here’s how my look turned out:

Fab Finds That Won’t Break Your Bank

So this weekend I did some shopping. Yes, it was a great weekend 🙂 Shopping always warms my heart (haha). Nothing is more exciting than looking forward to wearing something new for the first time, but sometimes, shopping gets difficult. There have been so many times where one shopping trip will result in all of my money gone on one item… So here are some great pieces that I found that are not only affordable, but will enhance your closet.

I found this dress in Urban Outfitters. I just went in to have a look and saw it and thought, what the heck I’ll try it on just because it’s gorgeous. Why not, right? (Take my advice, DON’T do that) I tried it on, and fell in love. It was $70.00. I have no where to really wear it to, but I just couldn’t resist it!

Now, I wanted this Nike jacket since last winter, and saw it in FinishLine. It was the last one they had, in my size and I was literally in love. I was with my boyfriend at the mall and was swooning over it, but it was $130.00! I couldn’t bear to cough up that much on one thing (especially when I knew I had a lot more shopping to do! :)) So, my boyfriend ended up just paying for it! (yes, I’m a very luck girl to have him 🙂 xo ) This might be a bank breaker, but I just thought I would share it with you because it is to die for!

Hope these finds are to your liking!
