Kendall Jenner isn’t the only member of the Jenner-Kardashian clan landing a major magazine cover this month—younger sister Kylie just announced on her Instagram page that she’s the star of Teen Vogue’s May issue.
Jenner, who boasts over 20 million followers on Instagram, is known for her daily selfies that show off those extra plump lips. It’s refreshing to see the 17-year-old on the cover sporting a more natural look, which may finally put to rest the many rumors about her beauty routine.

In her interview with Teen Vogue editor in chief Amy Astley, Jenner explains that her makeup routine is quite the process. “I never really wear makeup unless I need to, because when I do my makeup I like to really do my makeup,” says Jenner. “So I’m never going to spend just 20 minutes, you know? A good night out is, like, two and a half hours for full makeup, curling hair, whatever. I love false lashes—individuals, strips, extensions.“ False lashes and plump pout aside, Jenner acknowledges that her selfies get a strong reaction regardless of her look.

"Today I posted my Instagram picture three different times. I kept deleting it and re-posting it because I kept looking at the comments and they were bad comments,” says Jenner. “And I was like, "Ahhh!” and I kept re-posting it. The people who take the time to write these comments are so mean and hateful, like they just want to come at you and hurt you.“
Of course, with that many followers, there’s always going to be some negativity. For Jenner, she tries to focus on the positive. “I think you should only really listen to what your family and your close friends say. I try to let it go in one ear and out the other and just stay positive.”
The May issue of Teen Vogue will hit newsstands on April 28.
