Kendall Jenner's 24 Best Beauty Looks Are Surprisingly Easy to Re-Create
If you're looking for beauty and fashion inspiration, look no further than queen Kendall Jenner. In honor of the second-youngest Kardashian-Jenner's 24th birthday, we're celebrating 24 of the style icon's best beauty looks. From her most memorable graphic green eyeliner looks on the red carpet, to the blond hair she debuted at this past season's London Fashion Week, to the heart hair photo that just about broke Instagram, and everything in between, Kendall's effortless cool girl style is definitely worth re-creating.
You probably know her nude glam makeup looks and effortlessly chic hairstyles pretty well, thanks to her superstar glam team (that is usually comprised of celeb makeup artist Mary Phillips and hairstylist/badass Jen Atkin), but Kendall also loves trying out new trends — and of course, setting some trends of her own. She never fails to make a red carpet moment gorgeously epic, her street style photos are plastered all over our mood boards, and her runway strut always makes us want to learn how to stomp just like her.
Whether you're a huge Kendall fan or just need a little bit of beauty inspo, here are some of our favorite looks that Kendall and her glam teams have put together over the years.
Kendall Jenner at the amfAR Cannes Gala 2019
This look is the epitome of KJ's usual glam. A soft brown smoky eye, wispy lashes, defined brows, a nude lip, and effortlessly tousled hair (middle-parted, of course) are all what make Kendall, Kendall.
Kendall Jenner Arriving on the Red Carpet at Cannes Film Festival 2018
This daring dress definitely stole the spotlight on the Cannes red carpet, but we're also seriously loving this '90s-inspired look. The straight tendrils framing her face and plumped brown nude lip are giving us Spice Girl-era Victoria Beckham vibes.
Kendall Jenner at the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards
This hair is a little bit of a departure for KJ, but we love it nonetheless. Loose waves thrown into a purposely messy updo give us all the bridal inspo we need.
Kendall Jenner at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards
It's clear that the straight face-framing tendrils have always been a staple in Kendall's repertoire, but what we love most about this beauty look is the long bubble ponytail that she's sporting.
Kendall Jenner Arriving on the Red Carpet at Cannes Film Festival 2016
A wet-hair look always makes a statement on the red carpet, and this time was no different. Her slicked back 'do showed off her chandelier earrings and glowing highlight.
Kendall Jenner at the Launch of The Estee Edit by Estee Lauder
We're totally loving this rocker glam on Kendall. The blown-out, black-brown smoky eye, messy waves, and imperfect middle part give off the perfect look that screams "I didn't try, but I still look fab."
Kendall Jenner at the Diane von Furstenberg S/S 2016 Show
This metallic blue and green eye shadow look really draws the focus to Kendall's eyes, and the bouncy curls accented with flowers complete her ultrafeminine glow.
Kendall Jenner at the BALMAIN X H&M Collection Launch in 2015
This wavy side-swept hair is really dramatic to accentuate the all-black ensemble that she's wearing. We love that she kept her makeup neutral to put the focus on her hair and outfit.
Kendall Jenner Arriving on the Red Carpet at Cannes Film Festival 2017
Kendall always slays her Cannes red carpet looks, but this hair from 2017 is by far one of our faves. The tight topknot with pieces hanging out at the back makes "undone" hair look so chic.
Kendall Jenner Sitting Courtside at a Los Angeles Clippers Game in January 2019
Can someone say Baby Spice? Kendall definitely draws a lot of inspiration from the '90s for her hair and makeup, and these tiny pigtails are no exception.
Kendall Jenner at the 2018 Met Gala
Kendall is always one to look out for on the Met Gala red carpet, and this extralong low ponytail is one that we'll always love. Plus, the dark smoky eye and pale nude lip make for a really dramatic effect.
Kendall Jenner at the 2019 Met Gala
Next up, another Met Gala look to remember. We love how KJ spiced up a simple slicked back 'do with the addition of a little curled baby hair on her forehead. It's a small detail, but it makes a huge impact.
Kendall Jenner at the 2018 Casamigos Halloween Party at Catch Las Vegas
Kendall always nails her Halloween costumes, and this Austin Powers Fembot-inspired look was spot on. Though the hair was a wig, we wouldn't mind if she started styling her hair like this all the time.
Kendall Jenner at the 2018 Revolve Awards
The cat eye is nothing new for the red carpet, but we love this updated take on it. To make her eyes just a little more feline-like, she extended the eyeliner in the inner corner of her eye. This small tweak makes her eyes look more angular and dramatic.
Kendall Jenner at the 2019 Vanity Fair Oscar Party
KJ made waves on the red carpet because of the daring slits and cutouts of her dress, but we're also totally living for this glam. Her hair is middle parted with the ends flipped out for a slight '60s nod, and her face looks fresh and glowy.
Kendall Jenner Walking the Runway at the Giambattista Valli Loves H&M Show in Rome in October 2019
Fresh-faced Kendall is one of our fave Kendalls, for sure. This natural, glowy glam is exactly the kind of inspo we need for our everyday looks, especially paired with the middle part and low ponytail.
Kendall Jenner Walking Around NYC in September 2019
What we love most about this street style look is how happy and carefree Kendall looks. Her half-up ponytail has a little bit of volume at the crown for a little extra oomph, and the clear gloss on her lips draws just enough attention to her smile.
Kendall Jenner Walking Out of a Car at Milan Fashion Week S/S 2020
Blonde Kendall was one we never knew we needed, but it totally suits her. Her new dirty blond strands were pulled back into a tight ballerina bun, and her blinding highlighter mimicked the shine on her hair.
Kendall Jenner at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party
We like Kendall's hair at whatever length she wears it, but this ultrastraight shoulder-length blunt bob simply styled with a middle part is giving us so much life. Whenever she decides to cut her hair again, this is how she should do it.
Kendall Jenner at the Sydney Tiffany & Co. Flagship Store Launch in April 2019
We love this updated take on tendrils. Instead of framing her face, she just took the little baby hairs next to her ears to add a little spice to her updo.
Kendall Jenner at #REVOLVEfestival 2019
#REVOLVEfestival is always a highlight of Coachella weekend 1, and Kendall is definitely embracing the Palm Springs vibes with this beauty look. The bouncy ponytail is perfect for hot weather, and her makeup looks fresh and glowy.
Kendall Jenner Leaving a Party in London in November 2018
We love this take on KJ's usual middle-parted hair. The two fun clips are perfect little accessories to add a little intrigue to her hair.
Kendall Jenner at the Vogue Foundation Dinner During Haute Couture Week F/W 2017 in Paris
We love how sophisticated this look is. The tight, high bun still sports her signature middle part, and the brown eye shadow is elongated just enough to enhance her eye shape. Plus, the flushed cheeks give her whole ensemble a youthful touch.
Kendall Jenner Walking the Runway at the Balmain F/W 2017 Show During Paris Fashion Week
Of all of the runways that Kendall has walked in, this one is probably one of our favorites. The three French braids at the center of her head, the graphic eye shadow and lip look, and the bold brow all make for a really impactful beauty look.
