This is what a $380 face looks like.

ICYMI, Kylie Jenner blessed Snap-fans with a full breakdown of her current makeup routine last week. The 15-step ($380) situation includes two to three products per facial feature providing enough coverage to transform even the least Jenner of faces into a Kylie Cosmetics Insta-clone.

Hate it or love it, the heavily made up Instagram makeup look popularized by Kylie and her beauty brand isn't going away any time soon. I'm no stranger to extreme makeup, but $380 is a lot of look, by any measure. Here, I follow all 15-steps to Kylie drag and find out how it looks and feels IRL.

Step 1: Mix and match

First Kylie cocktails Make Up Forever Ultra HD with Urban Decay Naked Skin One and Done on the back of her hand and applies the custom mix as a base using a clean Beauty Blender.

Step 2: Accentuate your arches

Kylie defines her brows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Caramel.

Step 3: Define your brows

Kylie traces her brows with Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealing Creme in Butterscotch to emphasize her arches.

Step 4: Prep your lids

Next, Kylie dusts Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder over her eyelids.

Step 5: Apply eye shadow

Kylie gives lids a sheer wash of mystery brown pigment before emphasizing the lash line with darker brown shade.

Step 6: Conceal

Kylie (literally) paints Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard under her eyes, down her nose, along her cheeks, and across her forehead and then blends it all in with her Beauty Blender.

Step 7: Set it

Then Kylie adds setting powder (the same Laura Mercier one) and blends it in...

Step 8: Set it again

This time with Chanel Double Perfection Lumière for an airbrushed finish.

Step 9: Contour

Kylie adds a bit of Benefit's Hoola Matte Bronzer to contour her cheeks

Step 10: Lock in your brows

Kylie revisits her penciled in brows and brushes them up with Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel.

Step 11: Give cheeks some color

Kylie dusts the apples of her cheeks with Sephora's Colorful Face Powder Passionate Contour.

Step 12: Curl your lashes

Instant doll eyes.

Step 13: Apply mascara

Kylie uses a mystery Lancôme formula. We love Hypnose for a fake lash look without falsies.

Step 14: Trace the waterline

Use Sephora's 12-hour jumbo liner to make the whites of eyes look super bright then clean up lids using a pointy cotton bud.

Step 15: Kylie Lip Kit

The grand finale: Kylie traces lips with Candy K liner and tops with a TBD gloss, giving her mouth the XXL look we know and love.

Bonus step: Instagram

The finished product is a look that incites reactions such as "when did you get lip injections?" and "it's like a video, but in real life." The next day, ex-Kylie bestie Pia Mia takes to her own Snapchat for an almost identical makeup tutorial.
