Kylie Jenner is quite the young woman. Before she even turned 19, she had a modeling career, fame, a rapper boyfriend and her own designer cosmetics line.
I, the last person to understand how to use make-up, even purchased a few of her lipsticks and glosses. I found that her bodycon dresses were very cute as well. I decided, why not live like Kylie for a week and see how her puppy-filled, starstruck life is. Here are some of the awesome (and ridiculous) things I did to be like Kylie.
Kylie Jenner’s 15-step makeup routine did not appeal to me, but I did try to copy her look. I purchased her brown-orangey eyeshadow and then used my normal tinted eye brightener, eyeliner and eyebrow pencil to create her look (in my colors of course).
I tried to do her 15-step makeup routine. I say “try” – I got through concealer and a little bit of highlighting before I was totally over smearing shit on my face.
I resorted to the eye stuff. I put a lighter shade near my brow and a darker shadow on my lid, did the same eyeliner and brow stuff. I ended with lips – Exposed by Kylie herself. I actually caked on a few layers of a beige matte lipstick first to make my lips appear larger, then added the Kylie lipstick. This is what it looked like.
I’m not a huge makeup fan so going all out only happened once. Oops.
Kylie says that waist training really helps her (and her sisters) so I gave it a try. Waist trainers are meant to help you with posture as well as make you feel fuller by wrapping tightly around your waist. Her specific waist trainer is about $50. Mine is from CVS and costs $20.
I’m not sure how literally effective it is but I did lose about 5 pounds the week I used it. It helped me keep my back straight if nothing else, hence Kim K’s use of it when she works out (it helps with squatting).
I don’t quite have Kylie’s curvy physique, so these dresses were not as flattering on me as they are on Miss Jenner.
I did like the color though, and I ordered a few more cause why not, right? But I definitely don’t have the body to rock it every day. You go King Kylie.
Kylie has four dogs. Luckily, so does my family, one being a four-month old puppy like her new baby Penny. This made taking lots of puppy snaps a pretty easy thing to add to my day.
Gotta love the doggies!
Posing on/around cars
Miss Jenner also has, like, eight super expensive cars (that she doesn’t need). My family has four cars.
We have a Lexus coupe, so I drove it around as though I was Kylie. It was super fun and a bit thrilling, to say the least.
My close friend Souvik also got a new car and allowed me to take a ride (Tyga driving, Kylie selfie-ing style) and a sexy photo.
And finally, I gave a tour of my Porsche because, well, that’s what Kylie did with her new custom Land Rover.
I’m no rookie in the selfie game but I am relatively new to the animated snap filters.
More selfies… and mostly the same filter.
Cutting out dairy
I love cheese. Kylie does, too. But she found out that she was lactose intolerant when she gained a bunch of weight from eating dairy. I had to copy her lifestyle and thus her diet. I slipped the first day and had a piece of cheese that I was just craving uncontrollably. Then, my dad went out and got me a latte like the fantastic and loving father he is. He did as he usually does and got me skim milk in it. I couldn’t say no. I had to remind my family that I was going dairy free and had to have coconut/soy/almond milk lattes.
My meals consisted of cheese-free chipotle bowls, egg white omelets with spinach and tomato, fish and soup, etc. Picking breakfasts that were easy but also dairy-free was insanely hard. My go-to’s are yogurt, reduced-fat turkey bacon sandwiches and protein bars with chocolate in them.
I totally failed the first few days because I ended up forgetting and eating dairy but by day three I got the hang out of it and was actively being dairy-free.
Living like Kylie for a week was kind of hard. I’m not into makeup and tight clothing and also love cheese, so I learned to admire Kylie for her ability to look so good in anything and stop herself from munching on the good stuff. I also learned a little more about makeup from trying to mirror her look.
But no concealer. Never again with the concealer.

You've probably heard this before: black don't crack, Asian don't raisin, brown don't frown. And it's true! Just look at Pharrell.

Thanks to the power of melanin, people of color tend to age remarkably well.White people, however, aren't usually so lucky…
Watch this bloodthirsty grandma shoot the fuck out of a 500lb gator because it ate her pet horse

What do you think your grandmother is doing right now? For those of you lucky enough to answer anything other than "turning in her grave, ashamed of the useless offspring she accidentally created", your grandma is probably doing something wholesome. Maybe baking a nice pumpkin pie (the first of the season), or thinking about what…
