As someone whose closet is packed with patterned dresses in a variety of tiered, ruffled, and maxi styles, it’s no secret that I love a statement piece. That being said, I also see the value in solid (both aesthetically and in theory) basics. Not only are they reliable on days when I feel like being a little more low-key, but truthfully, they’re the most versatile options in my dress collection.

Kylie Jenner might just be a beauty artist in the making, and the way she transformed Links”>Kim Kardashian into her makeup doppelgänger is proof. In a video shared to her YouTube channel on Tuesday, Jenner revealed that she’d still love to be involved in the beauty community, even if she wasn’t the owner of Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin. “I would be a makeup artist if I wasn’t Kylie Jenner,” she told Kardashian as she did her makeup. “For real, I would really love it.” After Kardashian offered to pay her and be her first client, Jenner warned, “I’m really expensive.”
Jenner used Kardashian’s KKW Beauty Celestial Skies Bronze Heaven Eye Shadow Palette ($25) and her own Kylie Cosmetics Duo Lip Kits to achieve Kardashian’s Instagram-worthy look.

Can you close your mouth when you put your mascara on?'” Kardashian said while applying the mascara.
