It's Kylie Jenner's Birthday—Here Are 22 Times We Wanted to Copy Her Beauty Look

Although Forbes's claim that Kylie Jenner is the world's youngest self-made billionaire has been controversial (self-made being the controversial part), no one can argue the youngest Jenner has become one of the most influential beauty and makeup moguls in the industry—self-made or not. Back in March of this year, when she was just 21 years old, her net worth was set at a crisp $1 billion, and in 2018, Kylie Cosmetics' revenue climbed an impressive 9% to an estimated $360 million. And, according to Forbes, she owns all of it.

Therefore, it's none too surprising she knows her way around the makeup industry and is equally well-versed in beauty formulas and product know-how. Of course, each of her sisters is rather iconic in the beauty department to boot. Our point? Jenner has had her fair share of mesmerizing makeup moments over the years, and to celebrate her 22nd birthday today, we're highlighting the specific looks that made us gasp in appreciation. Remember last year's birthday vibes shown below?

Ahead, 22 beauty looks rife with colorful strands; long, fluttery lashes; and of course, lots of nude lips. Happy birthday, Kylie! And cheers to all the equally stunning looks surely awaiting us in year 22 and beyond.

Earlier this year, Jenner was spotted out and about New York City in an ultra-long, ultra-sleek low braid.

For the 2018 MTV VMAs, Jenner rocked icy blonde strands, a dramatic side-part, and a low, polished chignon. All complemented by a smoky eye.

Here, the same sparkling shade of icy platinum, but a bold, blunt bob for the 2017 Met Gala. Oh, and a glittering rose gold gaze.

Jenner isn't one to shy away from color when it comes to her strands. Lime green complemented her neutral and more minimal makeup MO.

Shades, a vibrant salmon mane, and perfectly groomed brows.

Jenner doesn't normally go for the grungey look, but we're into her damp, fringe-framed shag here.

A glossy pink pout accentuates Jenner's sky-high lashes, dose of pink blush, and pulled-back strands.

If you look closely, you'll see Jenner's subtle play of lavender shadow—a striking addition to her long, platinum hair and perfectly nude lip.

Sunset-hued lids pair beautifully with the star's dare we say Ariana-esque high ponytail.

We love Jenner in any hair color, but we love her raven-hued natural strands best. For the 2016 Met Gala, she adorned her beauty look with a perfectly pulled cat-eye, a pop of color on the cheeks, and her signature matte nude lip.

Leave it to Jenner to make a pastel, Rainbow Brite hair vibe look chic, not tacky.

Here, her bubblegum pink-dipped hair (and bangs!) made us do a double-take during 2016 fall fashion week.

We love this piece-y, perfectly imperfect low ponytail.

Her cool, collar-length cut looks even cooler paired with a dramatic center part, not to mention lashes for days.

These days, Jenner is less into the super bronze and bee-stung look. But back in 2015, that was the vibe in addition to minted aquamarine waves and a visible root.

Here, she traded in her pastel teal strands for a gilded shade of blonde.

In 2015, Jenner attended the grand opening of Sugar Factory American Brasserie with a fitting shade of candied green hair.

This beauty look might be from 2015, but it's still her signature—dark, voluminous waves, nude lips, and lots of drama at the eyes. Plus, let's not forget her flawless skin.

We love Jenner in bangs, especially this retro rendition, which she debuted for the 2015 MTV VMAs.

We rarely see Jenner is any lip color other than nude, but we're obsessed with this moody brick job. Her caramel layers and some bronzer offer the perfect face frame and contour.

Can you spot the difference? Jenner mesmerized with hazel-hued contact lenses the same year.

It doesn't get more stunning than Jenner's purple-on-purple Met Gala aesthetic from this past May.
