What do you think of Kendall as their brand ambassador? Check out the video below to see Kendall trying on her mom’s makeup as a little girl, pretty darn cute. Her family name may proceed her but she is a beautiful young girl who appears to be working hard to make a name for herself in the modeling world.

Estée Lauder  announced that it has signed Kendall Jenner, fashion’s new breakout star and social media sensation. Kendall will appear in digital, TV and print advertising campaigns and play an active role in creating social media content that will live on Estée Lauder’s channels well as her own.

“Bridging the worlds of high fashion, entertainment and social media, Kendall is a modern beauty who represents a whole new generation of women who live, breathe and share beauty, fashion and life 24/7, on their own terms, in a visually compelling way,” said Jane Hertzmark Hudis, Global Brand President, Estée Lauder. “She is the ultimate instagirl, and we are excited to leverage her image, voice, energy and extraordinary social media power to introduce Estée Lauder to millions of young women around the world.

“It honestly feels like a dream to represent such an iconic beauty brand — it is an incredible honor and quite humbling,” said Kendall Jenner. “I found out when I was backstage at Paris fashion week, and all this time I’ve had to keep the news top secret. I am so excited to share it now and be part of Estée Lauder.”

Kendall has an astounding social media following of over 30 million fans across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, placing her as the number one model on social media1 with a fast-growing global audience. In the last year, Kendall has also experienced a meteoric rise in the beauty and fashion arena, marked by the Estée Lauder signing as well as a 13-page fashion feature in the December issue of American Vogue shot by Patrick Demarchelier.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner made $100,000 each off their nail polish line with OPI

Another day, another dollar!

Kendall and Kylie Jenner launched their nail polish line with Nicole by OPI called “Kardashian Kolors” in 2011, and it was a very profitable venture. The 17 and 16 year olds named their polishes “All Kendall’ed Up,” “Kendall on the Katwalk,” “Rainbow in the S-ylie” and “Wear Something Spar-kylie,” as part of their collection with Kim, Kourtney and Khloe.

Kendall and Kylie were just 13 and 15 when the polish line launched, and it was extremely profitable for the girls.

RadarOnline.com obtained a copy of documents filed in Los Angeles court last year, revealing that the five sisters were offered $600,000 total and decided to split it evenly. Kendall and Kylie each made $100,000 for lending their names to the line through 2012.

What did they have to do to earn that six-figure paycheck? Not much. The girls had to attend a one-day photo shoot and a one-day media tour, as well as tweet and blog about the polishes on their own time. They also agreed to “use reasonable efforts” not to promote any other nail lacquer.

Since then, Kendall and Kylie’s fame has skyrocketed and both have gone on to secure more business deals. Together, they have a PacSun clothing collection and have endorsed Venus Gillette razors. Kendall has developed a lucrative modeling career and is currently one of the faces of Agua Bendita Swimwear.

OK! Magazine reported they make $5,000 per episode of E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Kendall allegedly commands up to $5,000 per promotional tweet, while Kylie can bring in $3,000.

Damn these Jenner girls!

 

Kendall Jenner Poses without Makeup

 

The 17-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kendall Jenner, sat down to discuss her modelling aspirations in an interview with V Magazine. She dishes on her famous family and giving up reality TV to pursue modeling.

PS: When you come to New York, do you get recognized a lot?
KJ Yeah, I’ve been trying to keep it low key when I have been here, I haven’t been recognized much. Taking a lot of taxi cabs, wearing sunglasses… but yeah, when I’m here with my family, everybody knows which hotel we’re staying at. It’s a little bit crazier.

Well we know your mom is so low profile, so.
KJ Oh, exactly.

Do you have any concerns coming into modeling, having done TV? Do you think that you have some barriers to break down in terms of being taken seriously as a model?
KJ One hundred percent. I don’t think some people take me very seriously. When I started off, I was way more of a personality in modeling and it wasn’t like, what I wanted to be exactly. I want to be more high fashion; I want to be more editorial, but hopefully I’ll just prove myself.

Who are some of your favorite designers that you would like to model for?
KJ I mean of course the big ones: Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana. All those big ones are my ultimate dream.

Which photographers are your favorites, and who would you most like to work with?
KJ I’ve actually this week gotten to shoot with some pretty incredible photographers. Working with Russell James was like a dream. I went to shoot with Greg Kadel yesterday and it was really incredible.

Are you more interested in runway or editorial?
KJ Editorial more, but I do runway. I didn’t think I’d want to do it but I’ve grown a love for it; it’s so fun for me.

If you had an agent or someone that hired you and they told you that to take modeling seriously, they’d want you to stop doing the TV show with your family, would you stop doing the show?
KJ I’ve never gotten that question before… Um, yeah. Probably.

Good answer. Not that you should, but it shows that you’re dedicated. Are you thinking of moving to New York?
KJ I mean, I love L.A., and I don’t mind flying out here whenever I have to. And I’m such a family person, and my whole family is over there, and all of my friends, I mean, I’d make new friends, but I don’t know.

Do you like New York?
KJ For a certain amount of time. It gets claustrophobic. I like having space.
