American television personality and model Kendall Jenner has been named the new global face of Estée Lauder.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star made the announcement on Instagram.

"I am super excited to announce that I am the new face of @esteelauder!! check out http://www.esteelauder.com/kendall to see more...I still can't believe it myself!" she wrote.

Estee Lauder released a short video showing Kendall as a little girl, trying on her mother, Kris Jenner's make-up.

"The first time I wore make-up, I was a little girl and my mom was filming me, and I'm like, 'Mom, I did my make-up, do you like it?"' she says in the clip.

"To think back to me being a young kid going through my mom's make-up drawer, playing with Estée Lauder, and flip to now and I'm a part of this family...," Kendall added.

Jenner joins the ranks of supermodels like Carolyn Murphy, Joan Smalls and Constance Jablonski.

"It's something that I didn't really expect to happen so quickly, it's so crazy," Kim Kardashian's younger sister went on.

"I just want to be the best me I can be, so having the power that social media has, I think that just seeing how many people care about you, and seeing how many people want to watch what you're doing, it just really makes you want to do the best you can do. I just feel so incredibly blessed," she said.
