Even compared to her highly made-up siblings, the youngest family member sported the heaviest face at Sunday's American Music Awards. Her makeup artist shares the backstory

Kylie Jenner, who at 17 is the most wee of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, asserted herself as a true woman this evening through her slinky AMAs beauty look, says her makeup artist, Rob Scheppy.

Her slinky plunging burgundy gown is definitely a good place to start. The teen punctuated the dress with a high-drama, heavy-lashed makeup look.

Scheppy took inspiration from the deep red color of the dress, giving Jenner a bold lip with MAC Cosmetics’ Burgundy lip pencil and a generous coat of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream.

But the real focus was Jenner's eyes, says Scheppy, who used layers upon layers of false lashes from Lash Wardrobe Lash Enhancers.

“I layered the different textured lash pieces together,” he says, “Kylie has these gorgeous big eyes, and I used the lash clusters to fit her eye shape.”

Scheppy applied multiple coats of Eyeko’s Black Magic mascara to amp up the drama even more. “It comes in a toothpaste tube and you can really get into the lashes and build.”

Even compared to sisters Kendall Jenner and Khloe Kardashian — who happened to be her dates to the event — the youngest Jenner definitely had the heaviest beauty look of all, quite a feat considering the clan’s ever present glam squad and fondness for getting dolled up.
