Watch Kyle Richards' 10-Year-Old Portia Umansky Flawlessly Do Her Mom's Makeup

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' budding makeup pro shows us her highlighter secrets with mom Kyle as her model.

It's no secret that having a talent for doing makeup is basically a character trait for everyone in Kyle Richards' family. Not only is The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills boutique owner's youngest daugher, Portia Umansky, already fine-tuning her grooming skills, you won't believe how good she is at doing a smoky eye.

Luckily for us, the 10-year-old is back again to spill her beauty secrets in the clip above while giving her mom's face a litle "zhush." 

"She'll come to me sometimes and say, 'Why did you do your contour like that? Why didn't you do highlighter? You're doing it all wrong, Mom!'" Kyle said while Portia added some blinding highlighter to Kyle's nose and eyes.

Portia pointed out that while many people use fan brushes to apply highlighter, she's personally partial to highlighter brushes with smaller tips. Of course, Kyle was beyond happy with the final product, telling Portia: "You know I cannot do the nose and you just really did a good job!"

Kyle went on to say that Portia is so talented, her friends are asking her to do their makeup for them. "My friends were calling me and saying, 'Do you think Portia has time to put some lashes on me?'" she said. She even did fellow RHOBH cast member Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's makeup for Coachella this year! 

And since we're all wondering, we finally got the answer to where Portia learned these amazing skills. "I feel like I just learned from my sisters and, like, I've watched YouTube...but I've kind of just been watching my sisters and looking at everyone I see do makeup and I kind of just learned from that," she shared. 

Luckily for Portia, her skills are quite literally starting to pay off — she revealed that in doing makeup for her mom's friends, she's started to earn some money. Here's hoping in a few years we'll see the budding pro launch her own makeup company!
