When it comes to makeup, nobody is as much of an expert as Kylie Jenner.
She's recently been declared by Forbes as the youngest ever female self-made billionaire, and a lot of that incredible wealth has come down to her various cosmetics brands. Of course, Kylie is probably one of the biggest influencers in the world, and if you need evidence of her makeup skills then all you need to do is check out her Instagram, which is peppered with hundreds of selfies which proudly display her expertise.
However, if you're as much of a fan of Kylie as we are, then you might be left wondering what she looks like underneath the foundation and filters. Is she as pretty as she superficially appears? Or does her skill with a brush and a compact mirror have something to do with her stunning good looks? Well here's the thing: I can confirm that Kylie is indeed pretty in real life after all, but that without her trademark makeup, she looks completely different. In fact, you might not even recognise her if you saw her walking down the street.
Don't believe me? Then just take a gander at the above pictures.
Yup: the girl in the yellow tracksuit is none other than Kylie herself. She was spotted out and about in Los Angeles alongside her favourite makeup artist Ariel Tejada this week. The paparazzi managed to snap some rare pictures of a makeup-free Kylie, and when the images hit social media, the general public couldn't help but comment on how different she looked.Kylie recently shared a video of her flaunting her impressive abs - just one year after giving birth to Stormi:
In a recent interview with Vogue fashion magazine, Kylie opened up about how important cosmetics are to her, and how they've helped her combat her personal insecurities over the years.
"When I was insecure about my lips, I turned to makeup to help me feel more confident ... I used to, like, steal all her makeup. She had these two little Chanel loose eye powders . . . like this baby blue and baby pink, and I’d just put them all over my face. They were the bomb. My mom always let me be creatively wild and go to my sixth-grade class with purple eyeshadow and a cut crease."
She also added that she used to test her makeup techniques and products on her former best friend Jordyn Woods (who has since been exiled by the Kardashians for supposedly sleeping with Khloe Kardashian's ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson) and that she and Kim don't compete much when it comes to makeup. Kylie added:
"Me and Kim do not compete ... A lot of people think we might, but we really like making completely different products and both enjoy each other’s stuff. The more makeup the better."
