Kylie Jenner thinks it’s ‘amazing’ that 20-month-old Stormi is ‘super into makeup’

A post shared by Kylie ✨ (@kyliejenner) on

One of the stories I missed last week was this dumb Kylie Jenner thing. I enjoy a fun meme as much as the next person, but people were really going crazy over Kylie singing “Rise and shine” to her daughter Stormi. Like, it wasn’t just a social media meme – people were legitimately doing “remixes” and even Miley Cyrus “covered” it.

I mean? It’s just kind of a funny mom thing. The clip is actually from a cool video on Kylie’s YouTube channel where she gives a tour of her Kylie Cosmetics office. She’s been posting new videos about once a week, and I actually wanted to talk about the latest one, where Kylie talks about her own makeup routine nowadays – she says she’s got it down to 10 minutes – and then she talks about how Stormi wants to wear makeup. Stormi is 20 months old.

Looks like Kylie Jenner has passed down her love of makeup to daughter Stormi! The Kylie Cosmetics mogul, 22, opened up about her 20-month-old child’s interests in a new YouTube video, which documented how the star’s everyday makeup routine has gotten shorter since becoming a mom.

“Stormi is actually super into makeup right now. It’s amazing,” Jenner remarked, adding that just like her mother, Stormi is all about lipstick. “Every time I’m wearing lipstick she notices. She looks at me and says, ‘lip lip lip.’”

Despite her daughter’s fascination with cosmetics, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star hasn’t decided when she’ll let her daughter start wearing some. “I haven’t even thought about when I’m gonna let Stormi wear makeup. I don’t know, I’m just going to see. She might even not want to wear makeup. But honestly, how things are going, this girl is obsessed with makeup. She begs me at this point.”

I remember being fascinated by my mom’s makeup as a kid as well, and I think most kids are (especially girls) interested in their moms’ whole routine. Stormi probably does notice when Kylie has on lipstick and all of that. Kim Kardashian says similar stuff about North too, only in North’s case, Kim allows North to “style herself” and wear makeup for magazine shoots, which is – in my opinion – a bridge too far. Stormi is just showing an interest in what surrounds her every day. As Kylie showed in her office tour, Stormi is there at the Kylie Cosmetics office every day, and she’s figuring out that makeup is a big deal in Kylie’s life, so Stormi is curious about it. I don’t know…maybe read to Stormi instead of putting makeup on her though?

    My 3 year old son loves to help me get ready. He likes finding the different things in the makeup drawer and handing them to me. I think the bright colors and shiny tubes just appeal to little ones.

    I don’t know, it’s a little harsh to say read a book instead. We don’t know that she doesn’t do that also.

    • jbyrdku says:

      I don’t know, sounds on point and on brand for any of those people. If there’s a library in her house it’s because a hired decorator put it there.

      • EMc says:

        I hope not. All the girls seems to spend quite a bit of time with their kids, and seem to really enjoy doing things with them, so I’m hopeful. Or maybe I’m just happy that I got to sleep in beyond 330am this morning and am the ultimate optimist today?

    • SM says:

      My son loves that too at 3. At age of 6 he still likes to do a make up look on me. Now it is more an excuse to paint on my face but that is besides the point. The point is the context. This family is obsessed with beauty to the point they all are unrecognisable. And not only as their original selves but sometimes they look like mannequins not humans. So I think it is fair to assume their kids are constantly exposed to it, and in this way form the notion of what is important and desirable in life. Also if they did not make their own lives into an empire, constantly exposing their private life to public I would be just fine with it. But is there any indication not to assume they are grooming a new generation of KKlan for public consumption? In which case teaching their kids to be aware of their looks and beauty is essential life programming here.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      That is so cute, EMc! I love when little ones want to be helpers! I don’t have kids but one of my cats likes to sit on my vanity and watch me do my makeup! He’s fascinated by the brushes and my hand movements. I have to keep my brushes in a drawer of I will come home to find them chewed on and scattered all over the floor.

      • Allie says:

        My cats are no help at all. They hide my hair band and make-up sponge every morning. Sometimes I even find that stuff in the basement!

    • Eliza says:

      My daughter is around the same age and started using my blush brushes. I rarely did makeup in front of her for that reason; she saw it maybe 3x and all of a sudden would sneak into my makeup bag to grab the clean brushes and put them on her cheeks. I wear so little makeup that I doubt she thinks it’s to make me “look better” but something that feels nice on the cheeks lol. She does also read books, and loves her black n decker baby toolkit because she can bang things.

      Kids pick what they like. I didn’t want her to think about makeup yet, but here we are.

    • GreenTurtle says:

      Sure, why wouldn’t kids be fascinated by makeup? It’s essentially painting or drawing on your skin, and kids love painting and scribbling.

  2. Esme says:

    Isn’t make up toxic to children?

    • Lizzie says:

      why would makeup be toxic to children but not adults? i assume if you ingest it – it is toxic for anyone.

      • Sof says:

        Because their skin is more sensible. Wearing foundation on a regular basis could damage it forever, it’s bad for pre-teens too.

    • kelleybelle says:

      It’s toxic to everyone. All absorbed by your skin, and unless you cleanse regularly, it stays stored in your tissues/liver. Read some of the ingredients on it, and on creams/lotions. Can you pronounce any of of it? Chemical soup.

      • jenner says:

        This ^^ . It’s well known that the US FDA allows many chemicals and junk in makeup that are prohibited in Europe. Know what you are putting on your face and bodies, ladies.

      • Sof says:

        Yes, even some cleansers are bad for your skin (I know people use coconut oil but it can clog your pores, be careful!)

      • kelleybelle says:

        Coconut oil definitely does NOT clog your pores. Even Johnson’s baby products contain many harmful ingredients, including carcinogenic dyes. Their baby oil itself is a petro by-product >> carcinogenic.

      • Jules says:

        Coconut oil is comedogenic, it clogs pores. Some people can tolerate it better than others. That being said, it has other benefits for the skin. Johnson’s baby products contain crap, just because it is marketed to babies does not mean it is good.

      • Bella Bella says:

        I highly recommend ewg.org which has a list of safe cosmetics and articles about the dangers of many makeup products.

    • Lizzie says:

      well…i don’t know anyone who is regularly putting foundation on their child’s skin and not washing it off to the point of poisoning and its dumb to assume kylie jenner is doing that and therefore saying her kid playing with makeup is “toxic”. i know chemicals in cleansers and makeup are toxic however seeing that people have worn it since like…the beginning of time and in all cultures – i’d love to see some scientific research on how many people die of makeup induced liver damage…LOL

      • Jules says:

        Um, just look at the rise in health problems- cancer, autoimmune diseases, autism.

      • Lizzie says:

        I see some of ya’ll got your degrees at Jenny McCarthy university 🙄

        You can dislike Kylie Jenner without claiming makeup causes autism

      • Jules says:

        Both genetic and environmental factors increase the risk for autism. This fact is a far cry from the crap that Jenny McCarthy spouts. Get educated before you try to educate others.

  3. naomipaige99 says:

    I’m not too sure I’d use the word ‘amazing’ for her to be into makeup at that young age. Maybe it’s cute.

  4. La says:

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. My 2 year old loves to mimic me at my vanity doing my hair and makeup and she always asks me to paint her nails. She also loves books, puzzles and playing with toy cars.

    As long as Kylie is encouraging her to explore lots of interests and not focusing only on makeup and beauty it’s fine. What I’m afraid of is that family is so vapid I don’t have high hopes that will happen.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Kylie does say “Maybe she won’t like makeup at all when she grows up” and sounds ok with that so maybe there is hope for little Stormi. I gotta say, Kylie seems like a good mom.

  5. MCV says:

    All the kids of this family are going to grow up with body dysmorphia. Really sad.

    • ZanB says:

      Thank you for posting a picture of Kylie’s “claw”. The picture is so distorted (to make her head look small) that Kylie’s left hand is gigantic :)

  6. CharliePenn says:

    My son has always been fascinated when I put on a “new lip”, as he calls it, and always wanted to play along when I put on makeup. He’s a bit older now but my two year old daughter is the same as he was, fascinated. I have some clean makeup brushes I give her so she can brush her face like she’s putting on blush and things, while I do my makeup. It’s sweet and I hope if either of my kids does like makeup as they become adults, they will know they never NEED makeup to look good, and they will enjoy it as a self-care ritual. For me that’s what makeup is, a ritual of highlighting my looks and presenting my face as I want it that day. As long as you talk with your kids, so they don’t feel like makeup is needed for them to feel good, it’s all good to me. My kids see me go with a bare face as often as a made up face. I hope kylie is around Stormi with a plain face sometimes, and that she talks to Stormi as Stormi gets older about makeup being a personal choice not a necessity.

  7. Claire says:

    Kids are usually fascinated by makeup. Most makeup is pretty toxic for children though. My five year old recently got upset and begged me not to wear foundation anymore. She said I look better without it. I explained that I wear it to look less tired, but, she thought that was silly. I have cut back to only under eye concealer and she feels better.

    • Eliza says:

      If it’s bad for children it’s still bad for adults. There are brands taking a lot of chemicals out, like Beauty Counter among many others.

  8. Caitlin says:

    On Kylie’s insta story last week (or maybe 2 weeks) she was responding to that ask me a question thing. Someone asked how to get their toddler as fluent as stormi is (for her age) and Kylie said she’s read to her from very young and uses flash cards.
    Even if it’s the nanny doing that I think it shows that kylie cares enough to have stormi exposes to more than just the superficial.

  9. boredblond says:

    Kids can only be interested in what they see..if they see mom painting or reading or standing on their head a lot, that becomes their normal world. So if mom spends lots of time staring at herself in a mirror, that’s what a toddler mimics. No one is born with a love of makeup any more than they are born with intact vocabularies..it’s learned.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      I disagree. My mom is an earthy, no makeup tomboy and I have loved makeup and fashion from a very young age. I’m pretty sure I was born that way.

      • EMc says:

        Me too, CW! No frills no thrills mama, but I loved clothes and makeup and shoes from a very early age! And boys, unfortunately. ;)

      • Eliza says:

        Me three. I had a mom and older sister who never/ rarely wore makeup, but I loved it from a young age. Now I wear only a little, unless it’s something fancy, but in my teens/20s yes!

      • BANANIE says:

        My mom was the same! And I fell in love with makeup but had no direct example of how exactly to apply it. My older sister kind of had to figure it out on her own too and was BIG into aggressive eyeliner along her lower waterline. So, it was a struggle haha

    • 2lazy4username says:

      Not true. My sister-in-law doesn’t wear a stitch of makeup and has owned maybe one lipstick in all the years I’ve known her. Her daughter, my 18-year old niece, spends all money at Sephora and is studying to be a makeup artist.

  10. Sonia says:

    “As Kylie showed in her office tour, Stormi is there at the Kylie Cosmetics office every day”

    Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm do you actually believe that? Or that Kylie even goes to that creepy office more than a couple times a month? Yikes.

  11. Lizzie says:

    this is totally normal for both a child to do and for a parent to misguidedly think what their kid does isn’t just mimicking but some intellectual decision. we all do it.

    my 2 year old likes to copy everything i do. i put on makeup once a week and she is still fascinated despite almost never seeing me do it. she also likes when i do my hair. i cleaned two brushes and put aside an almost empty eye palette for her to put on her “makeup” – which she asks for when i’m doing mine. i give her a blowout every night while she puts on her “lips” aka chapstick. its cute and harmless. unless you’re doing a full face of foundation with mascara and eyeliner – a little blush or lip gloss to play is not toxic for kids.

  12. Ye says:

    Huh.
    Kylie is dumber than I expected. I guess I thought she was the smart one since she stays in the background on the show and has made so much money. But she comes off really vapid.

    • naomipaige99 says:

      The whole klan is vapid!!!! They are vapid, fake, plastic famef***ers!!!!

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      From this morning’s news: This idiot is now trying to get a patent/trademark on the phrase: “Rise and Shine”. SMDH…

      • 2lazy4username says:

        If tha’ts true, I’m sure it’s Kris behind the wheel. But, hey, if a simple “rise and shine” hadn’t caused such an insane social media storm, there’d be no impetus to even think of such a thing. Who are the real idiots?

  13. Jesys says:

    Its normal. Im relieved she doesnt put makeup on her baby yet. Soon she will.

  14. Amelia says:

    Okay but this video of Stormi listening to the song and then immediately asking for it be changed to her dad’s music is adorable:

    https://www.instagram.com/p/B3uxHRfnQfa/

  15. Jessica says:

    I will pay you a lot to NEVER cover the KarTrashians again. Please please make this nightmare for away!!!!!!

  16. ME says:

    I don’t even think Kylie is in her office everyday let alone Stormi. When Kylie’s postmates orders were made public it was obvious she spends a lot of time at home…you can look at the time food was delivered…literally morning to night. I never believe anything these people say but I do think the little girls in this family will have a fascination with make-up because they see their moms and aunties, and granny in full face of make-up every single day.

    Also, didn’t Kylie trademark “rise and shine” after the meme became popular? It’s so stupid. People just love to make this family richer lol.

  17. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I was obsessed with my Mom’s makeup when I was little. Its perfectly normal. And nowhere in her comments does she state that she is actually putting makeup on her child so I don’t see an issue.

  18. lucy2 says:

    Like everyone has said, I think it’s pretty normal for a kid to be interested in it. I remember playing with it when I was like 4 or 5.
    But let’s be honest, it’s probably ALL that kid sees, her family members slapping on makeup or talking about makeup. Hopefully as she grows she gets her own interests and does what she wants in life, not just following the family.

  19. billypilgrim says:

    Word on the street is that Kris is trying to parlay Kylie’s one second of “singing” into an album.

  20. jenner says:

    Kylie has the brain of a kturnip. Her poor kid doesn’t stand a chance of having true self-worth.

  21. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Omg, I HATE when people pierce a baby’s ears. It should be illegal. I’ve been slapped in the face and I’ve had my ears pierced, and the ear piercing hurt a lot more. Yet we can’t slap a baby in the face, but we can pierce its ears? What happens when the baby scratches or pulls at their sore earlobes? I mean, I get the Jenners have enough money to have staff literally watching the baby 24/7 to make sure that doesn’t happen, but the whole idea of piercing a baby’s ears turns me off. Why does a baby need to look attractive, anyway? It reminds of me those child beauty contests where they’re dolled up and in make-up – why does a little girl have to be sexually attractive?

    • Bebe says:

      I think it is cultural, in some cases. But my French husband was appalled when I told him my parents pierced my ears when I was a baby, which shocked me, as it was a really common practice in California when I was growing up. Not trying to argue, just saying that it isn’t supposed to make a child “sexually appealing” , in my experience.

  22. A says:

    I think it’s okay to let your kids have a degree of control over what they wear and their make up and stuff. But like, it has to come from a place where they’re not being pressured to look a certain way. I know a lot of kids play dress up and wear make up and stuff, but it’s from an innocent place where you’re a kid trying to be grown up, and not because you’re insecure about how you look. I think that’s why it wasn’t okay for North to be wearing make up for that magazine shoot–the reason you wear make up on a magazine is different, and those reasons aren’t anything a child should be worried about at all.

  23. BeanieBean says:

    I’m obsessed with her walking into her sleeping child’s room & flipping on the overhead fluorescent lights. Seems like a rude awakening for that little kid. How turning on a lamp first?

    • Marigold says:

      Well, the cameras in the room would be far more intrusive to her sleep than a light coming on, and the baby was clearly already up and awake before the light came on.

      But I take your point. Anyone who does that to me in the morning would have pillows thrown violently in their direction.

  24. HeyThere! says:

    Maybe it’s more that makeup is always around and available so she’s really into it?? My toddlers have no idea what makeup is because I don’t wear any but once a month or longer. They like chapstick, because that’s what they see me use. That being said, there is nothing wrong with kids enjoying makeup. I mean, come on it’s paint for your face!!! That’s fun!!!

  25. Marigold says:

    I know nothing about these people and the family in general except what I see on this website, but here’s the thing: This young woman clearly loves that little girl. We have to stop casting aspersions on mothers for mothering. I don’t wear makeup, so my daughter never played with any. She’s a teenager now, and I’ve made it available to her if she wants to play with it or try it on for herself, but she has no interest. That’s me and my kid. My house is full of books because I’m a history major and a complete book nerd. My daughter is a math kid and could not care less about a house full of books.

    I am the best mother I know how to be, and I’m sure this young lady is being the best mother she knows how to be. Her daughter being given access to all the cosmetics she could ever want to play with will not harm her. If anything, it will demystify the entire concept and she may just decide she doesn’t want to wear any at all.

    Is the little girl loved, protected, told that she is worthy, fed, housed, and kept from harm? If the answer is, “yes,” then the mom-shaming over something as silly as a harmless bit of makeup to copy mommy…is out of order.

    I think it’s cute.

  26. My Dogs Asleep at My Feet says:

    Stormi is into whatever mommy likes at that age.
