You Won’t Believe How Little Kourtney Kardashian Has Changed In 10 Years

The Kardashian sisters aren’t just known for their maximalist beauty routines — they’ve made entire careers out of them. Kim’s got her contouring line, Khloe documents her near-daily hair changes on her blog, and don’t even get us started on their half-sister Kylie…

But there’s one Kardashian who’s carved her own path — and hasn’t veered from it even when everyone and their mom started selling lip kits and Sugar Bear gummies. Kourtney, a staunch health nut, has positioned herself as a wellness expert and holistic beauty queen. And you kind of want to believe her, considering that after 10 years of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she still looks exactly the same as she did on that very first episode.

In that time, the mom of three has stuck to a low-key hair and makeup look, too — and it’s noticeably different than her sisters’ glam routines. Ahead, 14 looks from the past decade that prove exactly why Kourtney is (and always will be) the organic, non-GMO, non-toxic, locally-sourced Kardashian kween of minimalist beauty.


Take a moment and soak this in, because this will be the most makeup you’ll spot on Kourt for the next 10 years — and even then, it’s not much. Right before KUWTK premiered, she attended a Las Vegas event with nude lips and dramatic smoky eyes.


Honestly, if you told us this photo was from last week, we’d probably believe you.


Kourtney managed to escape the thin brow trend of the 2000s (even Kim was a victim). Her bold brows have been a mainstay at every red carpet event.

At the 2009 Emmy Awards, the reality star splurged on a rare spray tan — but kept her makeup and hair otherwise low-key.

With tousled waves, a touch of liner, and pink gloss — Kourtney cemented her go-to minimalist look here in 2010.


This was the year Kourtney started playing around with highlighter, including in her waterline.


Kourt almost never wears her hair up, but when she does, a touch of pink blush and golden highlighter make her face glow.


Sisters Khloe and Kim often experiment with blonde hair, but these light brown highlights are about as bright as Kourtney will go.

Perhaps the most startling change we’ve seen from Kourtney: full, blunt bangs.


But they were short-lived, and Kourtney was back to her usual self (plus some metallic liner) at the opening of the DASH Miami Beach store.


The year that Kourtney broke up with long-time partner Scott Disick, she started experimenting with more hair looks — including this sleek, center-parted style.


Every once in a while, Kourtney swaps her black eyeliner for the occasional bright red lip, like here at Glamour ‘s Woman Of The Year Awards.

A few months later, Kourtney appeared on Amazon’s Style Code Live. “ To me, beauty comes from within as well, so like, I have [an] avocado shake every morning,” she said while on the show.


10 years after KUWTK started, Kourt’s still rocking the nude lips, black liner, and tousled waves she started with — but now in a way that’s completely her own.
