Find Out Why Kendall Jenner Says Makeup Artists Are Scared of Her

When you're dealing with somebody as drop-dead gorgeous as Kendall Jenner, there's an inherent intimidation factor, and apparently, that applies to some of the makeup artists who work with the supermodel. But not because she's perfect—rather, because she's a perfectionist. Kendall Jenner told People in this week's issue, "I'm so picky, makeup artists are scared of me," noting that she used to ascribe to the philosophy of "do whatever you want, I don't care." However, she says that the more she immersed herself in the world of beauty (and seemingly after she landed a mega-major Estée Lauder contract, which makes sense), the more perfectionistic she became regarding others doing her makeup. She said, "I’m a perfectionist. If someone is doing my eyeliner, it has to be exactly the same on both sides, super-straight. If there’s a tiny little bump, it has to be fixed. Our family makeup artists are scared of me sometimes!” 

However, Estée Lauder global makeup artist Victor Henao, who worked with Jenner to create an “elegant, lived-in” look for the Fragrance Foundation Awards on June 17, said he prefers to work with people who know what they want. “Kendall came in with a vision,” Henao told People. “I love when models do that, because in general they do different looks all the time. They come in and they’re kind of like, ‘Who do I want to be tonight? Who is Kendall tonight?’ They want to be their true self for one night. … [Kendall] will tell me what she wants, and then we kind of go from there as it’s growing and coming to life.” Keep scrolling to see Jenner's elegant evening look and to shop the exact products Henao used to create it!
