This Woman Lived Like Kylie Jenner for a Week and It Was Insanely Difficult

Pin It

Kylie Jenner seems to have it pretty easy. While the rest of us are choosing our next college courses or commuting to a job where we sit in a cubicle for 8-10 hours a day, Kylie is getting glammed up to drive her fancy car and have people fall all over her wherever she goes. And she's getting pretty rich in the process. Not a bad gig, huh?

Turns out, there's a lot more to Kylie's life than just shopping, photoshoots and insanely expensive dinners. Cosmopolitan's online assistant fashion and beauty editor, Brooke Shunatona, discovered that first-hand when she tried to live like Kylie for a week - just ONE week - and discovered that it's insanely tough to be Ky.

She started things out simple enough, scrolling through Instagram as she sat at Starbucks wearing head-to-toe Adidas (well played, Brooke!). Of course, she had to do some work while she was enjoying her java, and posted a pic to her Instagram featuring a piece she had just worked on for her website.
She copied everything from Kylie's hair, makeup and beauty routine to the outfits she wears and the activities she does and it's A LOT of work, you guys. Seriously.

Another challenge? Lacing up Kylie's shoes with Kylie's DOES she do that? Brooke concluded that she must have a little help because it's legit impossible with all of those laces and buttons that all need to be handled before you even step out of the house.

Brooke also had to take an insane amount of selfies, all of which took at 5-10 minutes to get the perfect pic. It's all part of maintaining that heavy social media presence that Kylie does, though.
Brooke says the hardest part was Kylie's beauty regimen. Since the 18-year-old is known to be a total pro when it comes to doing her makeup, the bar is set pretty high. It's also very time-consuming and even if you have all of that makeup, you still need to know what to do with it.

"It takes a lot of work to maintain as many of the things that she does," Brooke admits. "It's a lot harder than I anticipated. I was like 'oh sweet I'll just dress like Kylie, it will be fun, no big deal' but all week, I was pretty stressed. It's very time-consuming to be a celebrity that is always in the spotlight."

Of course, there are plenty of perks that come with being Kylie (or any Kardashian for that matter), but it is a TON of work. Just one more reason we all bow down to King Kylie.
