Go full Kylie Jenner with these beauty dupes

The first thing you notice in Kylie Jenner’s daily selfies? Her famously full pout and Los Angeles mansion behind her, if we’re being 100% honest. But her adorably freckled and flawless complexion is a close second. That’s why we love that the makeup mogul also has her own skin care line for influencer-worthy looks: Kylie Skin! From the Walnut Face Scrub and Foaming Face Wash to all the moisturizers and masks, you can easily recreate Kylie’s perfectly poreless and glowing skin with these beauty essentials. The only issue? They can be a bit pricey, as with many of the beauty products launched by Kylie Jenner and her sisters. But you can have your Vanilla Milk Toner and wear it too, as there are plenty of beauty dupes available to get that Kylie complexion while using only affordable or drugstore products. CeraVe, The Ordinary, Kiehl’s…they’re all here to give you that Kylie Skin on a budget. Find our favorite beauty dupes below!

Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% In Vitamin F by The Ordinary, $18

Sure, the name of this beauty dupe is a mouthful. However, skincare products from The Ordinary are known for simplicity. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is a derivative of Vitamin C to beat dullness and give the skin a boost of brightness - along with balancing out skin tone, protecting against free radicals, and reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Seriously, just a few drops a day can do wonders for your complexion - with a little help from Vitamin F (or essential fatty acids) to improve the overall appearance of your skin. Just ask Kylie’s fellow Gen Z skinfluencer Hyram Yarbro, as The Ordinary is one of his favorite toxin-free brands to achieve a simple and stunning complexion. At $18, it’s a cheaper alternative to the $28 Vitamin C Serum by Kylie Skin - and the perfect early Christmas present to banish winter dullness and light up your look this season.

Almond & Honey Face Scrub by Mario Badescu, $15

While the Walnut Scrub from Kylie Skin was met with a bit of controversy (just Google it,) the Almond & Honey Face Scrub by Mario Badescu is a great beauty dupe with top ratings and tons of nourishing ingredients. Swap out walnuts for almonds, along with Cornmeal, Oatmeal, and Kaolin to gently exfoliate and lift impurities while soothing your skin in the process. The exfoliation process may seem intense, but it’s necessary for removing dirt, oil, blackheads and dead cells to reveal your most glowing skin - and this scrub by Mario Badescu nourishes with Honey and Sweet Almond Oil to give your complexion a taste of beauty. Use it 2-3 times a week for your most soft, smooth, and sparkly complexion that’s definitely Kylie-approved.

Makeup Melt Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes by Bliss, $3

Every beauty lover needs the right pair of makeup remover wipes, whether you’re a glam girl like Kylie or a “tinted moisturizer only” type of person. And the good kind doesn’t just remove your waterproof mascara and every last glitter particle from your metallic eyeshadow, it also infuses your face with nutrients without being too harsh on your skin. Now don’t get us wrong, we’re definitely fans of the Makeup Removing Wipes from Kylie Skin. These wipes feature ingredients like Aloe Leaf Extract, Cucumber and Oat Kernel Extracts, Glycerin and Vitamin E to brighten, hydrate, and nourish while pulling last night’s foundation from your pores. However, they’re also $10… and you may be better off spending this amount on your favorite drugstore makeup than the wipes that take it off at the end of the day. Instead, try the Makeup Melt Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes by Bliss! They feature several of the same ingredients as the Kylie Skin wipes - including Aloe Extracts and Chamomile, to soothe and hydrate as you remove all your makeup after the (Zoom) holiday party. And at only $3, you can store a pack in your house, car, and work desk to fix last-minute makeup mistakes and remove the random streak of foundation on your neck that you have no idea how you missed.

Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA by The Ordinary, $8

We’ll never stop talking about The Ordinary, and the brand’s influencer-approved products that provide the most hydrated, de-stressed, and glowing skin at under $10. Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA is a perfect substitute for the Face Moisturizer by Kylie Skin - with all the right ingredients to work hard, and glow harder. You know, just like Kylie Jenner herself! Dermal lipids, Saccharides, Glycerin, Amino Acids, Hyaluronic Acid and much more… all can be found in this moisturizer that our MIRA community agrees is hydrating, anti-aging, good for acne, and lightweight. Swap out the Kylie moisturizer for a favorite from The Ordinary that is, in fact, anything but ordinary for your skin care routine.

Foaming Facial Cleanser by CeraVe, $15

It’s time for a little honesty. Spending $43 on a face wash isn’t always the best use of money or time - sorry, Kylie. The good news? You can find one of the best beauty dupes for the Kylie Skin Foaming Face Wash at the drugstore. And not from just any drugstore brand, but TikTok sensation and Hyram Yarbro favorite CeraVe. Hello there, Foaming Facial Cleanser. Like most CeraVe products, this face wash is packed with simple and powerful ingredients. Ceramides restore and maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier, Hyaluronic Acid provides a hydration boost, and Niacinamide keeps your complexion calm - and these natural substances are ideal for even the most oily, combination, or dry sensitive skin. If you wear a full face of makeup on the reg, like Kylie, you’re probably used to scrubbing hard to ensure that your cleanser removes every last trace of highlighter or pressed powder. But since this CeraVe essential bubbles up and breaks down impurities with ease, you can cleanse with kindness and get that Kylie-esque complexion. Our MIRA community says that this cleanser is hydrating, good for acne, and gentle on the skin - thanks, CeraVe!

Caffeine Eye Cream by The Inkey List, $10

Listen, everybody needs eye cream. Everybody. Even when you’re only in your early 20’s like Kylie - which is why her skincare line includes a caffeine-infused cream to get an early start on your anti-aging routine. But while it’s an effective treatment, this eye cream is also $20… and we have a beauty dupe from The Inkey List that’s half the price, with even higher ratings for being hydrating, brightening, and anti-aging. Caffeine Eye Cream energizes your delicate under eyes with the star ingredient, reducing the dark circles and puffiness that can occur after a long night of studying or binge-watching. And then there’s Matrixyl 3000™, an awesome-sounding peptide that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Or prevents them, if you’re still in your 20’s or 30’s and want to continue looking that way for years to come. A bonus tip? Eye cream instantly refreshes and soothes the under eye skin, creating a smooth canvas for concealer application and your most natural makeup looks.

Rose Sugar Lip Scrub by Milani, $10

If there’s one thing that Kylie is known for, it’s her lips. Always perfectly-lined and embellished in creamy, ultra-smooth color (hint, hint: Matte Lip Kit). However, her daily use of lipstick means that she needs to keep her pout soft and exfoliated at all times - like with the Hydrating Lip Mask by Kylie Skin. This treatment definitely feels luxurious on your lips - infused with Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Vitamin E and more to nourish and soften. That being said, you can also try one of the best drugstore beauty dupes by Milani to give your pout the love it deserves. Rose Sugar Lip Scrub is a crystal-based exfoliating formula that soothes even the most dry, chapped lips - infused with Rosehip Oil, Argan Oil, Coconut Oil and more for the ultimate moisture moment. No flaky skin or dry patches, even as temperatures drop and the chilly fall weather starts to decrease moisture levels in your lips. This holiday season, we know you’re excited to rock all of your favorite lipstick shades from Kylie Jenner’s makeup line - from her signature pink to the bombshell red she pulls out for special occasions (like Christmas!). You need a smooth and hydrated surface to truly bring out your most beautiful colors, and a few weekly sessions with this exfoliating lip scrub will maximize color payoff and enrich your lips like never before!

“I love this product! The only toner I use and it never disappoints me. I have dry sensitive skin, and after I wash my face I just use this toner with matching moisturizer and my face feels like a baby's bottom! Plus, my face is super clear.” Vitamin E is an underrated skincare ingredient, with the power to soothe and protect the skin while locking in moisture like a dream. Think of it like a hair conditioner, but for your skin! This toner by The Body Shop features this standout ingredient, along with wheatgerm and soya oils for a hydration boost that deeply cleanses. It’s a cheaper alternative to the Vanilla Milk Toner by Kylie Skin, with all the moisturizing benefits that give your clean skin the ultimate glow up!

Feeling stressed? It happens to the best of us, even Kylie Jenner, but your skin doesn’t have to show it. Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash by Kiehl’s is one of our favorite beauty dupes for the Kylie Skin cleanser, formulated with a few simple and powerful ingredients to replenish and recharge the skin. All while removing every last trace of liquid foundation and blush. Calendula provides skin-soothing properties that leaves your face feeling fresh and smooth, as nobody likes the “tight” feeling that often comes after cleansing, while Glycerin supports the moisture barrier and locks in hydration. Since Kiehl’s is known for their selection of men’s grooming and skincare products, this face wash is the ideal stocking stuffer for both you and your boyfriend this season!

If you’ve ever tried a microdermabrasion facial, you know that it’s 100% legit. This process involves an esthetician using an exfoliation device to remove dead skin cells while evening out texture, reducing signs of aging, and fading dark spots and discoloration for glowing skin. Pretty cool, right? And definitely a treatment that Kylie Jenner has had once or twice. Now imagine all of that power in one $18 tube! Total Renewal is dermatologist-approved to remove impurities and amplify your skin’s brightness factor, and that’s not all… it also reduces fine lines and wrinkles, balances out tone, and leaves your skin feeling silky-smooth. It’s as close as you’ll get to a perfect facial scrub, and a flawless beauty dupe for the Walnut Scrub by Kylie Skin.

Get that Kylie Jenner glow with these affordable Kylie Skin beauty dupes - all on MIRA!
