"Kendall likes the look of makeup," explains Rob Scheppy, one of the sisters' go-to glam gurus. "But, she doesn't really like the feeling. She likes a very clean, fresh makeup...Kylie does her own makeup pretty well. She's 17 now, so she wants to show people that she's not a little girl."
Perhaps, that explains why Scheppy rendered her signature, overdrawn '90s nude pout in a shade of burgundy for last night's American Music Awards. "She's pretty specific about how she likes to look, and normally we do her typical thing, but for this, I asked if we could change it up. She was totally down for it," he says.
But, what Kylie gave up in lip color she was not willing to forsake in eyelashes — as in, an entire box of eyelashes. Click through to find out more about the products Scheppy used to get her look, grill not included.

First things first: It's not a Kardashian makeup look without a little bit of contour. "I used Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar duo," Scheppy says. To warm up Kylie's complexion while still keeping the skin fairly matte, he dusted the bronzer under her cheekbones, jawline, and on the temples. "Then, I added a little shimmer on the cheeks."

Since Kylie's a fan of the larger-than-life pout, Scheppy went with a pencil instead of lipstick. "I did a full, big, beautiful burgundy lip to go with her gown," he says. He drew in her signature shape using MAC Burgundy Lip Pencil, and then filled in all over the mouth for a majorly matte dose of pigment.

But, since lip pencils can often be dehydrating and cause flaking, Scheppy broke out the big guns: "We added a little bit of this Eight Hour Cream Balm on top," he says. The balm doesn't dry glossy, so it keeps the matte effect while offering comfortable moisture.

Apparently, contouring isn't just for the face. "We did a majorly contoured crease, too," Scheppy says. "I used a chocolate cream shadow and just followed along her natural crease to darken it."

Now, for the fun part: "There was this small box of eyelashes in my kit," Scheppy says. "So, I just used all of them!" He cut each piece you see in this photo into even smaller sections, and then strategically placed them along the lashline. "I wanted it to be lashes for days," he says. The spikier parts were ideal for building intensity in the middles of the eyes, while the wispier parts created an elongated, winged effect at the ends.

"The whole point was for the color of the lip to stand out against the color of the lashes," Scheppy says. So, he used a super black mascara with a generously sized wand to finish off the look.
