By now, fragrance fanatics everywhere know that ‘Modern Muse Nuit’ by Estée Lauder explores the deeper, darker, and more addictive side of the original ‘Modern Muse’ scent. The perfume sees floral and fruity notes of blue chamomile, jasmine absolute, exotic mandarin, and creamy heliotrope blend beautifully with heady woods, creamy Madagascan vanilla, rich tonka beans, and warm amber to make for a glamorously seductive scent.
Speaking exclusively to Savoir Flair, face of the fragrance Kendall Jenner revealed her beauty secrets and dished on why the new perfume is her definitive scent this season. Today, in celebration of her 22nd birthday, we revisit the supermodel’s makeup must-haves, her signature beauty looks, and where you’ll find her on a typical night out.
How would you describe the fragrance in three words?
To me, ‘Modern Muse Nuit’ means stylish, strong, and feminine.
Spontaneity is the name of the game because who wants to be predictable?
What emotions does this perfume evoke in you? What do you love most about it?
I love the mix of woods and florals in this fragrance. It’s very glamorous, smoky, dark, and sexy.
Where do you see yourself wearing this fragrance?
I’d wear ‘Modern Muse Nuit’ at night.
What is a typical night out for you?
A typical night out for me will always vary because I’m rarely in the same place. If I’m in LA, you’ll find me hanging out at my house with friends, chilling. If I’m in NYC, I’m probably getting a group together to go out to dinner and then sway whichever way the night pulls us. Spontaneity is the name of the game because who wants to be predictable?
When you want to make a statement, what outfit do you envision yourself wearing?
I rarely wear dresses, but when I do, I look for something that stands out. Also, black leather jackets always make an outfit.
What is your go-to evening beauty look?
It depends a lot on my outfit. If I’m going to wear a strong eye, I won’t do my lips. And if I wear a bright lipstick, I won’t wear a lot of eye makeup.
What is your typical beauty routine like?
I always make sure to wash my face and moisturize. When it comes to everyday makeup, I keep it really minimal and natural. I’ll usually use light foundation, bronzer, and blush, and then I’ll add some mascara. I like easy tricks, like throwing on some eyeliner and smudging it out a bit. I also do the cat-eye flick a lot.
Do you have any makeup products you swear by?
The ‘Double Wear Makeup to Go’, ‘Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion’, ‘Little Black Liner’, and the ‘Sumptuous Knockout Mascara’.
