I Tried Kylie Jenner's Beauty Routine for 5 Days--and This Is What Happened

ESC: Kylie Jenner POV

My social media feeds are filled with beautiful faces.

From my gorgeous friends (shameless plug) to celebrities like Kylie Jenner and makeup pro Shayla Mitchell , I am constantly seeing flawless faces. However, after filters, apps like Facetune, good lighting and carefully thought-out angles, it's not exactly effortless. Thus, it has set a very high standard for modern beauty that's seemingly void of blemishes and imperfections. 

After watching women "beat their faces" every morning, I wondered, "If I put more effort into my appearance, would I experience a boost in confidence?" (Think: the feeling you have when you walk out of the hair salon.) I love getting glam on the weekends, but on a day-to-day, I stick with tinted moisturizer, light foundation, mascara and bronzer (sometimes, I even go makeup free ).

But, what if I woke up and spent the time to get camera-ready? Kylie does it every day to the delight for her millions of followers. Her beauty regime been so impactful that she's created a business around it;  Kylie Cosmetics products sell out in mere minutes. The question is: Is her look achievable for someone without a glam squad on call? There was only one way to find out.

Let me preface this experience by admitting that I started my journey at Star Lash Extensions , where Kylie and Selena Gomez have extended their lashes. Even though it required an hour-long appointment, it saved me a lot of time in the end. (Note: When extensions thin out, Kylie is a fan of Ardell Falsies ).

Next, I gathered the products that Kylie swears by  on her social media, which came out to approximately $300 worth of eye shadow, contour and highlight palettes. Admittedly, I added a few of my usual products so I wasn't too out of my element. Finally, I was ready. 

DAY 1

I woke up on day 1 to a few lashes on my pillow, reminding me of what lie ahead. "What have I gotten myself into?" I asked myself. As I laid all of my products, tools and brushes on my bathroom counter, I felt excited about getting glam. Who wouldn't be excited with all of the highly-praised products? Pretty pigments, radiant nudes, shimmering creams—it's a beauty lover's dream.

As I actually started applying contour, I remembered that all of my choices and talents (or lack thereof) would be documented. At that point, I sighed in the mirror and wished that I had a glam squad at my beck and call. My biggest worry rested in the poor lighting of my bathroom. Without natural light, I have to go between my living room and bathroom to make sure that my makeup is blended correctly. What's the use of having brilliant colors if you can't see what you're doing? Lesson one: I need  this mirror .
