Glam by Kylie. In her recent YouTube tutorial, the makeup queen taught her oldest sister a few new application tricks. Kourt said after the session that it made her appreciate the process more because Kylie truly doesn’t skip a step—she goes all out. Ahead, we’re sharing the tips Kourt picked up from the cosmetics guru and the ways she’ll apply her makeup differently from now on.
Use a foundation mixing palette.
Kourt shared that Kylie and all her friends use a mixing palette, like this one, to apply foundation. She puts a few pumps of foundation on the plate and then applies from there with either a brush or blender. It makes for a much smoother application.
The triangle undereye concealer trick.
With concealer, draw a triangle under your eyes. Make the point of the shape right above the top of your cheek. Then blend it in and use a very light pink powder under your eyes to set your concealer.
Kourt typically uses powder bronzer and blush, but since Kylie did her makeup using cream options, she’s decided to make the switch.
When she contoured Kourt’s nose, she powdered her entire nose with translucent powder (after foundation was applied) and left the dust while she drew two lines down the nose and blended. Then she brushed the powder off at the end.
Highly recommend highlighter.
Kourt mentioned that Kylie applied highlighter down the center of her nose and a touch on the inner corner of her eyes, which is something Kourt didn’t do before.
After she filled in the brows, she applied a clear brow gel, which Kourt admitted she usually skips but made such a difference. Kourt also said brushing her brows and curling her lashes are the two things she never skips.
Little lip lift.
To take overlining (a trick Kourt already uses) to the next level, Kylie drew a straight line but not connecting the bow of her lips, which made it look like they were lifted a bit. She used a darker shade to line and a lighter hue to fill in the lips. She also added a high-shine gloss, which Kourt typically doesn’t wear.
She put brown mascara on her bottom lashes and black on the top lashes. Kourt thought this was interesting but said she’s a black mascara girl for life so probably won’t use this trick in her everyday makeup routine.
Kylie contoured her jawline with creme sticks and then finished off Kourt’s gorgeous glam with setting spray.
