Days after Kendall Jenner was revealed as the newest face of Estée Lauder, the brand’s official spokesmodel, Joan Smalls, has quizzed her on walking the runway, her failsafe beauty products and tips on how to take the perfect selfie. Get the need-to-know below.
Kendall and Joan first met backstage at fashion week…
'I was telling you to be more boyish and manly' says Joan. She was trying to calm Kendall's pre-show nerves.
Kendall (AKA The Instagram Pro) has some amazing selfie tips…
'Lighting is a big thing. If you’re not in the right light it just won't work. 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.'
She loves a strong eye..
‘Sometimes I like a little bit of a cat-eye, or a wing is nice. And lots of mascara. I love mascara'.
Her beauty icon is 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.'
She’s a huge Sam Smith fan.
'I know every single Sam Smith song, I’m obsessed with him!'
Kendall’s favourite Estée Lauder product is not what you’d expect.
'I’ve always been a huge fan of their concealer. I’ve grown up with Estée, that was all my mom would use.'
How does she nail it?
'I like to keep it really neutral with nudes and grays. But if I’m going on vacation, I like color. My favorite polishes are royal blue or red.'
What’s in her on-the-go beauty kit?
'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.’
