Fashion muse, It Girl, Instagram sensation and cover star Jenner Kendall has already started cosmetics brand Estee Lauder’s sales as its newest celebrity face.
The beauty company’s website features the 19-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s photos as well as a video.
“The first time that I wore makeup, I was little girl and my mom was filming me,” says Kendall in the Estée Lauder video, talking to mother Kris Jenner. “And I’m like, ‘Mom, I did my makeup, do you like it?’”
“I feel like I’m more honored to be a part of something with such amazing names involved. It’s something that I didn’t really expect to happen so quickly. It’s so crazy.”
Other celebrities who have been spokesmodels for the brand include Gwyneth Paltrow and supermodel (and Guns N’ Roses music video star) Stephanie Seymour, according to E¡ Online.
“I just want to be the best me I can be,” Kendall adds in the video. “So having the power that social media does, I think just seeing how many people care about you and seeing how many people, like, want to watch what you’re doing, it just makes you really want to do the best you can do.”

Beyoncé is the highest paid woman in music in 2014, with estimated earnings of $115 million, more than double what she raked in last year, according to Forbes magazine.
The huge sum, most of which was from her world tour, propelled Beyoncé, 33, from fourth place last year and put her firmly ahead of pop star Taylor Swift, 24, with $64 million, who jumped up one spot from last year to No. 2, news agency Reuters reported.
Pop singer Pink, 35, climbed up from No. 8 in 2013 to third with $52 million.
Beyoncé played 95 shows during our scoring period, bringing in an average $2.4 million per city, according to Pollstar. She added endorsement deals from the likes of H&M and Pepsi plus her self-titled surprise album, which hit iTunes in December 2013 and quickly became one of the year’s top sellers—to send her income into nine-figure territory.
The R&B singer’s self-titled album released last December and endorsement deals pushed her earnings up further assuring her the top spot.
Barbados-born Rihanna, 26, with $48 million and Katy Perry, 30, who earned an estimated $40 million, rounded out the top five on the annual list.
Madonna, 56, ranked No. 1 last year, failed to make the top 10 in 2014. Lady Gaga, 28, dropped from No. 2 in 2013 to ninth place this year with estimated earnings of $33 million.
Forbes compiled the list after estimating pre-tax income based on record sales, concert tickets, touring information merchandise sales and interviews with concert promoters, lawyers and managers, said the report.

Former world number one in women’s tennis Caroline Wozniacki may yet have to claim a Grand Slam victory, but she surely won hearts completing the recent New York City Marathon, running for a charity benefiting youth runners.
The 24-year-old Dane, who is currently ranked eighth worldwide, completed the 26.2-mile (42.2 km) race that covers all five New York City boroughs in an impressive three hours 26 minutes 33 seconds, beating her target of 3:30 by averaging 7:53 per mile.
“I’ve never tried anything this hard,” Wozniacki said. “This is the hardest thing … the toughest physical test ever.”
With her time, Wozniacki qualified for next year’s Boston Marathon, but said she will probably hold off on marathon running for at least a few years.
“At 20 miles, (with) six miles left, I’m like, ‘I’m never running another marathon again,’” said Wozniacki.
Crossing the finish line in Central Park, Wozniacki was greeted by good friend world number one Serena Williams. “I think she said, ‘I’m proud of you. Unbelievable! Well done! Great job!’ All of that,” said Wozniacki.
