Kilo Kish Spills Every Last Detail of Her Low-Key Beauty Routine
If the ongoing battle among Taylor Swift,Beyoncéand current title-holderSelena Gomezfor most Instagram followers is any indication, it seems that the secret to being a successful musician today lies in one’s online presence. Which is why it was so surprising when Los Angeles–based vocalistKilo Kishdecided to take a break from social media at the height of her popularity, when she was garnering attention for not only her music, but also modeling, deejaying, and designing.
Turns out going cold turkey was way more productive than racking up likes: While away, the 25-year-old musician focused on her artistry and came back with her debut albumReflections in Real Time,which released last month. She also took the time to create her imprint, Kisha Soundscape + Audio, and work on her forthcoming lifestyle brand Kisha, set to launch later this spring.
To separate Kish from her love for fashion and beauty is impossible: She majored in textile studies at FIT, so the woman both knows style and lives it. Her penchant for skin care, hair, and makeup align with her downtown-cool aesthetic: retro-inspired denim, voluminous natural curls, mixed prints, and bold lips for a pop of color. While the buzz of her 20-track LP is still reverberating, we talked to Kish about her five-minute makeup routine, her strangest beauty habit, and the discontinued product she’s still lamenting.
