10 Things We Learned From Kylie Jenner's Tell-All Beauty Interview

There is a lot that goes into looking that awesome all the time.
The New York Times felt it necessary to ask new beauty icon Kylie Jenner about EVERYTHING, and I mean everything. From skincare to make-up, fitness and back again we learned a lot about the 18 year old social phenom taking over everything right now (doesn't her youth and beauty make you feel like shit?) Here are the 10 most important things I learned from the interview, so you don't have to read it.

1. She goes to a hella-expensive dermatologist named Christie Kidd.

Not that us mortals can afford that, but a customized skin routine keeps Kylie in check. She wears Mimosa Blossom Dream Cream and lots of sun screen. That's why her skin's flawless, because she has custom everything. This dermo services all of the Kardashian folk and recommends products and an expensive sun-screen by TiZO3.

2. She says she doesn't wear "heavy" makeup.

As an avid proponent of heavy makeup, I can tell she wears a lot of different products. She says that in real life she doesn't use a lot of stuff, just on photo shoots and instagram posts. Her professional artists use way more shit than she does apparently. She claims her favorite foundation is Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation because of its light coverage.

3. She uses Neutrogena make-up remover wipes.

I like the wipes from Korean brand Tony Moly, and they're more expensive than Neutrogena. Woo! Got you beat there Kylie. I guess it depends on what kind of skin you have. The Neutrogena ones tend to dry out my skin. There's a wipe for everyone I guess.

4. She wears CVS / Drugstore brand lashes.

She says she doesn't like heavy lashes either. So she heads to the drug store lash section and picks out "clean and light" whisper individuals. For all she's worth she could be wearing those crazy Mink lashes, but I guess she wants to be down-to-earth.

5. Her go-to contouring kit is this one from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

She's known for contouring just as much as Kim, but Kylie doesn't go as heavy on the drama. For a light, natural look Jenner uses this all-in-one kit.

6. She plugged the Kardashian line of beauty products. No surprise there.

She says she uses the Kardashian bronzer. I think it's chalky, then again my opinion is irrelevant since I don't have millions of Instagram followers right? I'm not bitter I swear.

7. She swears by "Illumination".

This is, I guess, the cool way of saying, "I use a light color to enhance the parts of my face that bounce light effectively." This is achieved by using makeup that's two shades lighter than your skin, and placing it strategically for a shimmery, glowy result. The lighter colors on sister Kim's face show the technique.

8. She doesn't like perfume.

I can't act like this is real news, but it's a little strange. You'd expect someone like Kylie Jenner to have a go-to perfufme, like a Chanel No 5 or something. Nope. She says she likes generic "Coconut Passion" spray and Victoria's Secret scents.
Ouch. Sorry to all of the designer perfumeries that want a piece of that Kylie Jenner promo money. Not getting any here.

9. She doesn't wash her hair every day and you shouldn't either.

I just recently stopped washing my hair every day. I don't know, I just like feeling clean. Anyway, Jenner uses Moroccanoil shampoo and conditioner. It's a pretty expensive salon brand, but doable if you really want to spend the money.

10. She's got an army of people helping her look good so you shouldn't feel bad because you don't.

She's got a spray tan artist, hair stylist, colorist, make-up artist, nail tech, personal trainer, chef and more. We can't all look perfect all the time, and even though Kylie does...we don't see everything. And why would we want to?
You can use the products, take the advice, but at the end of the day you can't be someone else. It's nice to get inspiration, but don't put so much pressure on yourself to achieve an unattainable look that you start to feel bad. It's okay, it's just make-up.

The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.
Makeup Artist Draws Kim Kardashian On Her Chin
If you think Michael Jordan crying meme is hilarious, the Kim Kardashian one is twice as funny. As much as we love Kim K, she will never get out of this one -- ever. Let's be honest, her cry was monumental and quite hideous -- then again, who really has a lovely looking smile anyway? While Michael Jordan has been getting the most shine lately for his crying meme, it didn't take long before someone came along and put the infamous Kim Kardashian meme on the map. You've seen it on blogs, you've seen it on cellphones, and you've even seen it on shirts, but have you ever seen it on someone's chin? If not, today happens to be your lucky day. A talented makeup artist decided it would be cool if she drew cry baby Kim on her chin and believe it or not, it actually came out looking rather amazing. You cannot tell me that makeup is not a form of art. Laura Jenkinson is a makeup artist known for recreating images on her chin using her ever so amazing makeup skills and if you thought this was pretty awesome, just wait until you see her Donald Trump drawing -- yikes. In the meantime, keep scrolling and check out the images below. How epic is this? Looks just like Kim. Seriously. Of course, you can't have Kim without Kylie and her new lips. Amazing! Looks just like Jay-Z. Big lips and all. He has that same sinister look he always has on his face. Donald Gump. Ooops, I mean't Trump. Hey Everyone, look it's Finn from Adventure Time! And of course, I had to save the best for last and for @alywoah. Tacos! How amazingly odd are these works of art? Which one is your favorite? @alywoah @danidee @humairaa @cindystran @sophiamor @buddyesd @marshalledgar @YourConscience @shannonl5 @TessStevens @MyAffairWith @EasternShell @Cle1 @jazziejazz @primodiva93 @stephosorio @LizArnone
