It seems odd at first to pair a 17-year-old with Nip+Fab, a beauty brand best known for some rather extreme (if not sinister) sounding products such as Viper Venom Wrinkle Fix and Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask. Then again, Kylie Jenner isn’t your average 17-year-old battling acne (though the company has products that address that concern, too). The teen grew up literally in front of our eyes, with reality-television cameras capturing her every awkward adolescent move. And like her older sisters, she’s quickly become one of the most-watched women on social media, with selfies generating speculation, as well as millions of likes. Here, the teen with a new skincare contract to her name schools us in the beauty lessons she’s learned thus far, the hair colors she’ll never try, and why she’s leaving the catwalk to Kendall.
Keep it simple: Despite having access to an arsenal of eye creams and exfoliators, Jenner keeps her skincare routine relatively scaled back: “I try to wash my face every night before I go to sleep, and sunscreen is a must,” she said. “Khloé taught me to always use sunscreen on my hands and face to protect my skin, and my mom taught me to always stay hydrated.” Kardashian/Jenner beauty rule number one: Should you find yourself cruising around L.A. in a flashy whip, keep your complexion under cover and a water bottle parked in the cup holder.
Make moisturizing a must: Whether she’s prepping for a photo shoot or a selfie, Jenner said that hydration is key. “I moisturize a lot,” she noted. Her go-to product: Nip+Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Serum. “I always have it with me when I fly.” As for the secret to her streak-free California glow: “I get a lot of spray tans, so the Yoga Blend Body Scrub is nice and relaxing.”

Show your true colors: “I’d probably never go pink or purple [when it comes to my hair] because blue is my thing,” she said. “Other than that, I’m extremely open to changing my style and trying different things.”
Fake it till you make it: Sure, there’s some controversy surrounding Jenner’s lush lips, but the teen attributes her mouth to nothing more than some makeup magic: “I use every color lip liner,” she said. “Everyone thinks that I stick to one kind, but I just love to make them super-prominent.”
Keep it in the family: When you spend every day in the spotlight, making your NYFW debut on your brother-in-law’s runway for Adidas Originals is NBD: “It’s Kanye [West], so I wasn’t nervous, but it was a lot of fun,” she said. “I’m not a model and I don’t aspire to be one—it was just some family fun.” It looks like Kendall is safe from any sisterly competition on the catwalk. As for the front row, that’s another story entirely.
