Who needs a makeup artist when you’ve got a makeup mogul in the family?
“This is the highlight of my life,” 23-year-old Kylie said in the clip posted on Caitlyn’s YouTube channel.
“It’s the highlight of mine!” the 71-year-old former Olympian replied.
Kylie, the youngest daughter of Caitlyn and her ex-wife Kris Jenner, said the father and daughter have “been talking about this for forever”. So when Caitlyn couldn’t find a makeup artist at the last minute due to coronavirus pandemic, she turned to her daughter.
“We saved this special moment for you guys because this is going to be the first time that I ever do my dad’s makeup,” Kylie said, before asking her dad, “Did you ever think that this day would come?”
“No, did you ever think?” replied Caitlyn, who was married to Kris for 23 years up until their separation in 2014. The couple were officially divorced the following year — the same year Caitlyn publicly announced she was transgender.
“I mean, I was 65 years old before I finally came through this,” Caitlyn explained. “It’s like I had to raise everybody else and I had such a life and finally, it was my time to be me and live my life.
“I didn’t think I could do it. And then I did it and you guys have been my best friend. My kids have been absolutely wonderful in all of this.”
The pair then had a heart-to-heart in the clip when Kylie revealed people were confused Caitlyn still allowed her and sister, Kendall Jenner, to call her ‘dad’.
“I know we had a talk a few years ago, and you were OK with us still calling you dad. How do you feel about that now?” Kylie asked.
“It was one of the best decisions I made,” Caitlyn replied. “And sometimes this community can be pretty tough, especially when it comes to pronouns and everybody’s got an opinion, and on and on and on. But I really felt from the beginning that I got to do it my way that works for me, and everybody out there has to do it their way, which works for them.
“Some people say ‘Oh, you’re the mother.’ No I’m not — I’m the dad, and I’ve been the dad the whole way. I will be their father until the day they die, or I die.”
As of February 8, the 15-minute clip has since clocked up 1,204,452 views on YouTube.
