Newly-minted billionaire Kylie Jenner, who got her start in cosmetics with her lip kits, knows a thing or two about creating the perfect pout. The beauty entrepreneur recently showed mom Kris how to achieve fuller lips through the magic of makeup.
Kylie, who has been open about using temporary lip fillers, taught Kris how to attain the same effect with her Kylie Cosmetics products. “I thought today would be the perfect day to teach Kris Jenner how to do the Kylie Jenner lip,” Kylie said in a video for E!. “It’s about time!” Kris replied. “I’m so used to you doing it for me and now it’s time for you to teach me how to do it by myself.”
Though we can’t imagine Kylie schlepping over to her mom’s every morning to do her makeup, we’ll play along. Kylie showed Kris her technique, using a nude Kylie Cosmetics lip liner to outline the shape of her mom’s lips. “You just follow your natural lip line and then you go way over,” Kylie explained.
Kris teased, “You do go way over!” Kylie then added, “Natural lip line, and then going way over so it gives that really Kylie Jenner look.”
To finish her mom’s lip look, Kylie added Kylie Cosmetics matte liquid lipstick over the liner and patted it “to make sure there’s nothing crazy going on.” For some added sparkle, Kylie applied Kylie Cosmetics High Gloss in the Oh You Fancy shade. Kris unsurprisingly loved it.
Kylie says she began overlining her lips after a boy thought couldn’t kiss well given her naturally thin lips. “I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips. I have really small lips. And it was like one of my first kisses and a guy was like, ‘I didn’t think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips.’ But I took that really hard,” Kylie shared during an episode of her E! spin-off series, Life of Kylie.
Kylie added that the comment really affected her self-esteem and left her feeling neither desirable nor pretty. After overlining her lips with lip liner for a while to create the illusion of fuller lips, she decided to go under the knife. She says, however, that it is the only cosmetic procedure that she’s ever had done. After spending most of 2018 without fillers, Kylie admitted to getting cosmetic lip fillers again. She had them done at Pawnta Cosmetic Dermatology in Beverly Hills, which specializes in Juvéderm, Restylane and Perlane injectables.
“People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false,” she said. “I’m terrified! I would never. They don’t understand what good hair and makeup and, like, fillers, can really do.”
Aside from makeup and fillers, there are other ways of achieving fuller lips. A lip plumper, a cosmetic product used to make lips appear fuller, works by slightly irritating the skin of the lips with ingredients such as Capsaicin, an active component of chili peppers, which makes the lips swell somewhat, creating the appearance of fuller lips.
