Hey everyone, it’s been a while! I got sick a couple weeks back, then I got really caught up with studying for final exams, final exams, and then packing to come home after finishing this year of college. Now I’m home, and I have lot’s of ideas, so look out for some posts in the next week 🙂 To kick things off, I have a post written by Christina Nika Kask who has guest posted here, here, and here before. Take a look and let me know what you think! And as always, check out the links at the end of the post to follow Christina on the web 🙂
Kylie Jenner, the youngest of Kardashian/Jenner family has been voted the most stylish of Kardashians. Teenagers around the globe have watched her grow up in Keeping up With the Kardashians, the famous reality TV show that launched her big sister Kim Kardashian and sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian into the world of the most famous, richest and most influential people of today. That Kylie is following in her sisters’ footsteps proves the fact she’s been one of the most talked about teenagers of today and most looked up to at that.
The recent Kylie Jenner lips challenge hit teenagers around the globe and for many with devastating results. The background of the challenge is Kylie’s amazing pout that drew attention of many for the last year. What’s wrong with having a gorgeous pout, one might wonder. Well, nothing really. What’s wrong is having one after you’ve paraded for 15 years in front of the camera with, as the public called them “snake lips she got from Bruce”.
The public was shocked to see this youngster turn from an (almost) ugly duckling to an astonishing beauty over night. Even her sister Kim Kardashian commented on the latest episode of KUWTK that “getting big lips changed her life”.
Little Kylie has recently admitted she’s had temporary fillers in her lips as thin lips “have always been an insecurity of mine”. But, before she did admit, the talks of the over-the-night-pout and speculations whether Jenner went under the knife were non-stop. Jenner had reportedly denied having had plastic surgery and insisted that all she ever did to make her lips look full was to overline them with a lip liner and fill them in with multiple colors.
So, teenagers around the world believed it and started overdrawing their lips only to look absolutely ridiculous. The next step was the infamous Kylie Jenner challenge.
The challenge meant ordering a plastic cup online and sucking onto it for a few minutes in order to get lips like Kylie’s. The lips would end up looking full but ridiculously disfigured and would often burst (this needed stitches). Visit this gallery of lip challenge fails at your own peril.
The suction onto a cup or jar increases blood flow to the lips and causes them to swell. Problematically, the results are said to last for hours, even days.
For all of you who are looking to have full lips without any fillers or challenges, you should know it’s all about good makeup. You should always resort to certified brands and I definitely go for Skin Matrix products since I have exceptionally sensitive skin.
- Exfoliate lips so that you remove any of the dead skin that may be in the way of your sleek pout.
- Use a quality lip liner. Draw your lips a tad bit over the line of your lips.
- Color the lips with the same liner you used to draw the lips with.
- Even both bottom and upper lip out by rubbing them together.
- For a glossy pout, add some see-through lip gloss.
Dr. Terry Dubrow from “Botched” set down with RuPaul and Sandra Vergara on “Good Work” talk show to talk beauty, plastic surgery and the lip challenge. After being asked whether the Kylie Challenge was science or madness, he said “I’d have to say both”. He then reflected on how amazingly weird is to have your lips enlarged by sucking on a piece of plastic only and joked saying “It’s one of those ‘do not try at home’ things”.
Kylie Jenner finally voiced out on her Twitter account saying: “I’m not here to try and encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look. I want to encourage people/girls like me to be YOURSELF and not be afraid to experiment w your look.”
Since Kylie admitted she’s had fillers injected in her lips, the question still remains – was it all worth it?
