Up Close & Beautiful: A Glimpse At Kilo Kish’s Beauty Stash

“I wouldn’t really consider myself a rapper. I was half-kidding when I started,” says Kish.

If you haven’t heard the smooth, impossible-not-to love voice of Florida-bred, Brooklyn-based musician Kilo Kish, I suggest you immediately download her debut EP, Homeschool—and prepare to get hooked. 22-year-old Kish, whose real name is Lakisha Robinson, delivers her rhymes in a unique way that Time describes as “bouncy, sweet and spoken-word like.” Both her stage presence and sound are 100 percent consistent with her beauty routine: low-key yet effective. Here are the products she relies on to get get gorgeous.

For a pretty pout: “I’m a big fan of Burt’s Bees lip balm. I also like YSL lipsticks because they don’t make your lips feel super-dry.”

Her daily hair routine:“I wash with shampoo maybe once a week if that, but I detangle and condition my hair in the shower every morning. I think Pantene has one of the best conditioners for detangling. After I’m done, while my hair is still wet, I use either Kérastase Crème Oléo Curl or Kinky Curly conditioner and I put regular olive oil on my ends to keep them soft.”

What makes her skin look great: “I use Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Toner and Ultra Facial Lotion on my face every day.”

Her secret brow-tamer: “I always use clear mascara to keep my eyebrows from going everywhere.
