Kendall's Workout Secrets
How Kendall Jenner gets into shape.
Kendall Jenner is making major headlines this week after becoming the newest face of Estée Lauder, so it only seems right that the 19-year-old dish her secrets on staying beautiful and happy.

Chatting with fellow EL spokesmodel Joan Smalls, Kendall can’t help but gush about the “honor” of representing one of the most prestigious brands, remarking that she’s “grown up with Estée.”

She continues, “That was all my would would use.  I remember the old lipstick cases that were gold and mirrored.”

However, as much as she loves adding some shade to her lips, she definitely focuses most of her attention on getting her eyes just right when applying makeup.

“I like a good eye,” she reveals.  “Sometimes I like a little bit of cat-eye, or a wing is nice.  And lots of mascara.  I love mascara.”

And speaking of those big, beautiful eyes–What’s her trick to looking refreshed during all her traveling?

“For sure I need to have lip balm with me always, and if I’m on a plane I like to have my moisturizer with me because you get really dry on planes so it’s important to keep your skin hydrated,” she says.  “Otherwise, I just need to feel refreshed and clean so I try to wash my face before I go to bed, and I use an eye cream.”

Kendall also reveals her favorite nail polish picks right now.  Neutrals are a go-to for keeping your nails looking nice even when they chip a little bit.

“I like to keep it really neutral with nudes and grays,” she says.  “But if I’m going on vacation, I like color. My favorite polishes are royal blue or red.”

Kendall has become a major beauty icon on runways and in the social media world alike, taking selfies that her 15-million fans can only attempt to emulate.  What’s her trick?

“Lighting is a big thing. If you’re not in the right light it just won’t work,” the supermodel reveals.  “I’m not into using too many filters, either. I like to keep it pretty natural—or black and white is always cool. But above all, you have to know your face: everybody has their good side. And practice! Practice makes perfect.”

As for the women she looks up to, Jenner can’t help but list some of Hollywood’s biggest names:  “Angelina Jolie. She’s just ridiculously beautiful. And then I really love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s style, and I love Rihanna. I feel like she kills it all the time.”
