The 5 beauty essentials Kendall Jenner keeps in her handbag

Including the tool she won’t leave home without

Digital Beauty Editor / January 18 2022

Kendall Jenner has a reputation for being a lot more low-key than her sisters, especially when it comes to beauty; girl tends to prefer the bare-faced life over a full beat day to day. And have you seen her bone structure?! We don't blame her. 

But while she may not carry blotting powder and multiple lip colours like her Kylie Cosmetics-founding younger sister, the eldest Jenner still makes sure she has a few specific beauty-centric items in her bag before heading out the door.

So if you’ve ever wondered what Jenner keeps in her everyday tote (an extremely chic Bottega number for the record), you’re in luck. The model just gave British Vogue a peek inside for their In The Bag segment, and shared all her essentials, from her signature spritz-on-the-go scent to the ‘emergency’ tool that makes her feel cute in a flash…


First up? Fragrance, of course. “[I always carry] perfume – this is my collab I did with my sister for KKW. This is our amber scent; I really like it, it’s a good everyday scent. I like to just have it on me just in case," she shared. Hey, if we'd crafted our dream perfume, we'd carry it too. KKW Fragrance blessedly does ship to Australia now, so why not grab a Kendall Jenner by KKW Fragrance Amber ($54.74 at KKW Fragrance) to smell just like Jenner herself?

A lash curler

Next was her unique 'emergency' item. “This is kind of random – I have an eyelash curler just because I feel like in an emergency if I have no makeup on and I just curl my lashes, I already feel a little bit cuter, so I always have this," Jenner laughed. She didn’t confirm the brand behind her specific curler choice, but eagle-eyed commenters guessed that she was toting the Surratt Relevee Lash Curler ($51.71 at Revolve).

It’s a good guess considering it’s a quality option that curls without breaking or pinching (thanks to its innovative design that puts less pressure on lashes). It’s not your only option, though – there are plenty of stellar eyelash curlers on the market.

Lip balm

Ah, celebs, they're just like us; even world-famous lips get dry. “I guess if we’re on the topic of beauty, I have this lip mask," Jenner explained re: her in-bag balm. "It’s really shiny and pretty when you put it on. It also feels really nice so I love having this on me just to put a little shine on.”

We like her approach to lip care; why just apply a basic balm through the day when you can use Laneige’s Lip Mask ($28 at MECCA), a deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid treatment that delivers major shine (as Jenner mentioned) and smells of sweet berries.

Silk scrunchies

Another practical beauty buy she keeps with her? A scrunchie that won't damage her hair. "[I carry] a little silk hair tie. I guess it’s better for your hair and it doesn’t pull or break your hair as much as a rubber band would.”

Silk scrunchies are pretty standard across the board (in other words, they’re all great), but considering Jenner’s hair stylist Jen Atkin is a brand ambassador for silk connoisseurs Slip, we’d put good money on it being one of their Slip Skinnie Silk Scrunchies ($50 for a 6 pack at MECCA). Jenner was carrying a black option (perfect for her brunette hair and included in said combo) but the pack offers blush and taupe shades as well.

Essential oils

“Last but not least [I have] my essential oils," she shared of her final item. "This one’s stress release which I need all the time. [It has] good vibes; smells good, feels good, makes me happy,” Jenner explained while swiping her Saje Stress Release Soothing Oil Blend Roll-On ($38.30 at Saje) onto the insides of her wrists. A blend of lavender, chamomile and orange, it’s a zesty yet heady mix that helps to soothe stress levels, sensory style.
