Kendall Jenner For Estee Lauder — Spills Beauty Secrets
The young runway model is ecstatic about joining the Estée Lauder team, according to EsteeLauder.com. Kendall said: “I’ve grown up with Estée — that was all my mom would use. I remember the old lipstick cases that were gold and mirrored. It’s such a family brand for me because it’s been there my whole life, so it is crazy to actually be doing this today.”
Kendall explains that she grew up in the beauty world. “My older sisters went to a makeup school when they were younger, so they’re all really good at it. They’ve always told me that ‘natural is better.'”
Her passion for makeup started when she was a toddler! “I have videos of myself from when I was really little, maybe three or four, and my mom is filming me as I walk out with a little bag and say, ‘I just did my makeup!’ Then I walk away and put some more on.”
As far as the celeb’s favorite beauty icons, Kendall confesses that she loves Angelina Jolie. “She’s just ridiculously beautiful. And then I really love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s style, and I love Rihanna. I feel like she kills it all the time.”
Kendall finishes off the interview by revealing her beauty tips for on-the-go. “For sure I need to have lip balm with me always, and if I’m on a plane, I like to have my moisturizer with me because you get really dry on planes so it’s important to keep your skin hydrated. Otherwise, I just need to feel refreshed and clean so I try to wash my face before I go to bed, and I use an eye cream.”
Kendall Jenner Gives Tips On How To Take The Perfect Selfie
During the last part of the interview, Joan asks Kendall, who has over 16 million followers on Instagram, advice for anyone who wants to know how to get the perfect selfie. “Lighting is a big thing. If you’re not in the right light it just won’t work. I’m not into using too many filters, either. I like to keep it pretty natural — or black and white is always cool. But above all, you have to know your face: everybody has their good side. And practice! Practice makes perfect.”
