Weekly Obsessions: Kylie Jenner

I don't know if it's surgery, lip injections, makeup, or puberty... but I want it?!
Ms Jenner, younger sibling of the Kardashians and supermodel Kendall Jenner, has really come into the limelight recently hasn't she? We've seen her on the television since she was just 10 years old, and last year, her Instagram selfies raised a few eyebrows. Was it surgery? At 16? She insists not, claiming in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan that her new look is down to learning how to do her makeup properly and puberty.
I personally think if you look reeeeally closely you can see her natural lips in the photo above. They're slightly darker and you can see this more easily on her top lip. But her recent 'no makeup' selfie (see below) published half way through writing this post has left me even more confused than ever! 



It's also great she's so body confident, as she's definitely either been blessed with a great body, or been working out and eating well to tone up and be permanently bikini ready. 

“These plastic surgery rumours hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting.” Kylie defends her lips and stated in a recent interview, "Big lips are awesome".
When looking at the photo above, my boyfriend James said: "I never thought I would ever find someone with blue hair that attractive."  Brilliant.

She also never takes a selfie without a set of false lashes, however she probably gets regular eyelash extensions. Well groomed and arched brows also shape her face and contouring her cheekbones slims her face and softens her jaw-line.I'm also such a massive fan of her style. It's a little extreme for me personally and it is expensive (obviously). It's based around a grungy/edgy look with designer thigh high boots or caged heels paired with a designer bag. However, what I love is that she isn't afraid of being a bit different and is very confident with it.
 "I like to mix edgy and boho. Nicole Richie has great fashion sense."
 "Puberty is a beautiful thing".
Whatever people think of her look, I love it. It is a great example of expertly applied makeup and what it can do for girls, and their self esteem. She is not perfect; and she has lived her life in the limelight since she was a small child. She's had to follow 5 beautiful older sisters (her closest an international supermodel), and she has found her own individual identity, setting herself apart using makeup and her own sense of style. She has a mature head on her shoulders, and I for one will be trying out this makeup look! But I'll pass on the blue hair, for now.
Love ya Ky.

To achieve Kylie's look:
- Medium coverage yellow based foundation, e.g Nars Sheer Glow or L'oreal True Match
- Heavy coverage highlighting concealer, e.g Nars Creamy Concealer or Rimmel Match Perfection.
- Bronzer to contour, (any matt bronzer will do, e.g Benefit Hoola)
- False lashes, e.g Ardell's Demi Wispies.
- Volumising and lengthening mascara- I love Benefit's They're Real or Urban Decay Perversion.
- Good brow pencil/brow set.
- Browny-pink Lipliner, e.g MAC Whirl or Rimmel/L'Oreal do good ones.
- Matte browny/nude lipstick e.g Velvet Teddy by MAC or a cheaper dupe.
- Liquid eyeliner or gel liner to create the 'winged' effect.
- Golden/bronzey eyeshadow colours, I recommend Urban Decay's Naked Palette 1 or 2.

A Wishlist...

A Wishlist...



Hey guys, today I thought I'd share with you my current wishlist. 
As you can see there's many things I would love but just can't afford, but I can dream!

Beauty

Firstly with the beauty/make-up items, I really want to try a new foundation and I feel like an awful beauty blogger having not tried out Nars Sheer Glow or Estee Lauder Double Wear! After I'm done with my beloved No7 foundation in Honey (I love you.) I'm going to have to splurge on one of these, and it'll probably be the Nars first, leaving the slightly heavier coverage Estee Lauder for the winter.

Also from Nars, I want one of their 'Multiples. The Matte Multiple is a multi-purpose makeup stick that can be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks. Beautycrush on Youtube recently stated how she loves this product and uses it everyday for contouring and it blends so naturally into the cheekbones. It's expensive at £30 but my Hoola bronzer has almost run out so I might just have an excuse to get this one on payday!

I also really want a MAC lipstick and lipliner. After reading Beauty and the Blog's new post she's got me lusting after MAC Whirl lipliner and MAC Yash lipstick and wearing them together. Yash is a matte nude colour, while Whirl is a slightly richer 'your lips but better' colour. Also, Kylie Jenner recently revealed on twitter the lip product she uses on her lips is Mac's Whirl *cue product selling out everywhere*




Finally, I am dying to try out the widely loved YSL Shocking mascara after hearing such good things about it. It's in stiff competition with my Lancome Hypnose Star Eyes and Benefit's They're Real though!


Fashion

I've been wanting a pair of Rayban Aviators for so long now but can't get myself to spend the £100+ to get them. I'm so afriad I'll either lose them or sit on them or something and at the end of the day you pay so much for the little white scribble in the corner of the lense. However, I'm in love with them. I think they're effortless chic and just overall suit my face so much more than the other styles.


A Michael Kors bag is also on the wishlist. I love this bag in any colour and think it'll be so nice with the Rayban's, a pair of ripped jeans and a nice jumper (or any outfit at that matter).

Electrical
As a new blogger, I'm taking all my photos using my iPhone. This is fine but I get major blog envy of those amazing visual blogs with high definition pictures and I think make-up tutorials will be way more effective if I used a DSLR camera. I've actually wanted one for ages as I can also take photos of whenever I go travelling too! In an ideal world I would love the Cannon 700D as it has a little flip out screen so you can see what you're recording if the camera is pointing at you. This IS pricey though at about £550 and other models come a bit cheaper such as the Cannon 100D and Cannon1200D (more around the £350 mark).



 Above is the Cannon 100D, also know as the worlds smallest DSLR, apparently it's an amazing camera, small, light and it's touch screen too. I also am obsessed with the floral camera strap from Etsy.

Lastly, and probably for absolutely no reason, I want an Ipad. An Ipad Air (or Mini) would be a lovely addition to the Apple family and I can imagine it being so much easier to travel with, or just sit on the sofa or train with than a laptop. This is definitely not the top of my priority list though as having an iPhone and a laptop I don't need one at all, but it would be nice!

Thanks for reading and feel free to leave any comments below on what would be on  your wishlist!
