KYLIE Jenner’s EIGHT-member glam squad are the secret masterminds behind her showstopping looks.
Here’s a look at the talented team behind her hair, makeup, clothing and nails.
Kylie, 24, is a mom-of-two, a bonafide beauty mogul and the third most-followed Instagram user on earth.
But of course, she can’t ‘glow’ it alone.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians alum has a team of at least EIGHT experts behind her.
From her makeup master to whom SHE reached out, to her hairstylist who once “cut off all her hair,” as she fumed on social media – here’s a look at her hand-picked glam squad that helps her look stunning.
Ariel Tejada, 26, (aka @makeupbyariel with 2.6M followers) is Kylie’s brains behind the brush.
Ariel started as a hustling makeup artist in Brooklyn, DMing different celebs promising to deliver his soft-glam style.
But when he was 20, it was Kylie who actually DMed him.
Ariel told Glamour Magazine: “My big break was through Instagram. I would just post and DM everyone. It probably was not even a full year into me doing makeup when Kylie reached out to me and from that moment, my life changed forever.”

Six years later and Ariel is still working with the star and a celebrity in his own rite – bringing fans some of Kylie’s most famed looks like her 2016 Met Gala glow.
Jesus Guerrero (@jesushair with 500K followers) is the star behind the scissors.
The LA-based hairstylist frequents Kylie’s TikTok, snipping away in the background – and other clients include sister Kim, Katy Perry and Chrissy Teigen.
The Hollywood-go-to hairstylist specializes in the sleek ultra-glam and is sought after for his modern twist on the “half-up, half down” style, per Hype Bae.
However, in 2020 Kylie got short with Jesus when he trimmed too much.
Kylie appeared with a towel still wrapped around her shoulders in an Instagram Story and wrote, “@jesushair said he was giving me a trim and cut off all my hair.”
But Guerrero clapped back, per Us Weekly, reposting Kylie’s Instagram Story and writing, “Kylie Jenner is trying to play me.”
Since Jesus recently posted Kylie’s layered locks in her bold braless blazer look from April 2022, it would appear they were just ‘teasing.’
Jill Jacobs (@jilljacobsstudio with 150K followers) became Kylie’s clothing stylist in 2016.
With a serious resume, she has effortlessly captured Kylie’s vintage-yet-modern feel.
She was born in Oregon, worked with Revolve Clothing for years starting in 2008 – before pivoting to personal shopping and outfit pairing.
Jill, who has also worked with Sophia Richie, Charli D’Amelio and many other celebrities since, now lives in Hollywood.
With a bold red bob and huge sunglasses, Jill has quite a look herself, and told Pop Sugar: “When scheduled, I’m informed what type of looks we are needing. It can be anything from cozy at-home looks to a red carpet look.
“From there, I plan on where to pull from and call in items I think will be best for the client. Then, we do a fitting where we try multiple options and land on our favorite picks.”
Chaun Legend (@chaunlegend with 1.3M followers) does Kylie’s understatedly beautiful long nails, often in a cute french tip.
The celebrity nail expert also does Khloe Kardashian’s nails – like her WILD red pointed tips she paired with a striking blue dress for Miami’s SKIMS pop-up.
“You are the best,” Khloe commented when Shaun shared his work.
He did Kendall Jenner’s simple yet stunning nude nails for her 2021 Met Gala look as well.
Kylie’s – and Kim’s – megawatt smile is the work of Beverly Hills famed dentist Kevin Sands.
Kevin has also worked with Justin Beiber and Miley Cyrus as well, per THR.
He told the outlet: “Before award season starts, clients come in wanting to brighten their smile and repair small chips or imperfections.”
Amber Asaly (@amberasaly with 750K Instagram followers) has brought her artistic angle as Kylie’s personal photographer.
The 27-year-old was tagged in snaps of Kylie with Stassie Karanikolaou in 2020 wearing fiery matching one-pieces – though it’s not clear if she’s on the payroll.
The photographer previously explained that when taking photos of Kylie – she’s seemingly invited as a friend.
“This summer has been f*cking amazing,” Amber said of Kylie’s 2019 Turks and Caicos vacation to Cosmopolitan.
“Kylie invited me on her Kylie Skin trip as a friend but also to catch the vibes and get cute pictures.
“And when I’m in a beautiful location with beautiful people and I happen to have dope cameras, I’m gonna do my thing no matter what.
And they want dope pictures too, so it kinda just works hand-in-hand.”
Isabel Alysa (128K followers on Instagram) is a beautiful blonde friend of Kylie’s who proudly shares her work.
“Glowing mama to be! @yrispalmer All 3 beauties tanned by me,” she captioned an image of Kylie and Yris Palmer at the latter’s lavish baby shower which was thrown by the KUWTK star.
Since Kylie and Yris had glowing tanned skin in the snap, it appears her work speaks for itself.
Kylie, Kim and her other sisters have been known to use lasering as a way to remove unwanted blemishes and eliminate wrinkles.
Though Kylie is young as it is, she appeared to have stopped by SEV laser spa before to maintain her stunning beauty.
“Sev laser always got me,” she once captioned a Snapchat image at the facility.
Clearly, Kylie’s persona and incredible Instagram-worth beauty have come with a grid of team members – but they’re quite a young, hip crowd who seem to love helping her soar.
