Kylie Jenner seems to be everywhere at the moment. And “bigger is better” seems to be her mantra – all you need to do is take a look at her lips, eyes and lifestyle to work that one out. But ever wonder how she gets that glowing skin and perfect pout? Well someone with that amount of money and fame surely doesn’t do it by herself….puh-lease. The star behind her sultry looks is California-based makeup artist Ariel Tejada. Although let’s be honest, he’s one of many.

But the amazing thing is he’s only 19, and he actually contacted Kylie through Instagram, an edgy but perfect choice for the tech-savvy world we live in today, and the rest as they say is history. And its not only Kylie that he’s worked his magic on either – he’s also made over Kendall, Khloe and Kim too. Above are a few of our favourite looks.


So let’s get back to Kylie… To re-create this look, you need to nail the basics. That means properly groomed eyebrows, a radiant foundation base, and soft lips. Then for the fun part – use a shimmery eye shadow and fake lashes to play up the eyes, and go all out with your contour kit to create that sculpted look. If you want to check out all the products that Ariel used on Kylie (I’m sure your bank account won’t thank you though), or just to drool over his FLAWLESS makeup artistry (and sob because you will never be able to work your makeup brush like that), then have a look at his instagram: MakeupbyAriel.
