Kylie Jenner is the latest celeb to hop on the gothic glamour trend that Kendall Jenner, Alexandra Daddario, Kacey Musgraves and Lily Collins have already tried out. 

The 25-year-old shared a series of stunning photos on Instagram on Dec. 21. Jenner’s makeup artist, Ariel, opted for a fresh and natural makeup base with over-blushed rosy cheeks, a tiny flick of brown eyeliner and a bright red lip. Her hair was slicked into a deep side part and high-bun by Irinel.

“love you mean it,” Jenner captioned the post that garnered one million likes in two hours. She wore a black mesh floral bodysuit over a lacy black bralette and threw an oversized leather jacket on top. The mom of two accessorized with mini silver hoop earrings and a chunky eyeball ring.

She posted the photos in promotion of Kylie Cosmetics’ new red lip kit in the shade “Boss” ($32).

In the first few photos, Jenner is posing with her well-known smolder. In the last several pics, she begins to smudge the red lipstick around, and the final slide in the carousel post is a video of her smearing the lipstick all around her mouth with her middle finger and thumb.

The official Kylie Cosmetics Instagram account shared a video of Jenner applying the lip kit and gloss. 

“We’re going to do something different,” she says. “It’s the holidays.”

She starts by carefully lining her lips and then takes a small eyeshadow brush to blend it out and soften the liner. Without completely filling in the inner portion of her lips, Jenner adds a clear gloss, “Match My Energy” ($16), on top.

“I love that this is a little different than your typical holiday red lip,” she finishes.
