Kylie Jenner tried to hide her lip enhancement when fans first took notice. But a lot has happened since then! After years of overlining her lips, Kylie decided not only to get lip fillers, but that sparked her passion for lipstick and eventually her Lip kit empire. Kylie chatted with big sister, Kim for The Evening Standard about the success of Kylie Cosmetics. “It’s the most authentic thing I’ve done in my career, and it really relates to me, and I feel like people can tell that I’m super passionate about it. It came from an insecurity and I turned it into something. I was insecure about my lips, and lipstick is what helped me feel confident. And I feel like people could see that it’s authentic to me, and it was organic, and it just worked!”
During Kylie’s 2017 solo reality show Life of Kylie she confessed that a boy really made her insecure about her 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. Just when a guy you like says that, I don’t know, it just really affected me. I just didn’t feel desirable or pretty. I really wanted bigger lips. I would overline my lips with lip liner just to create the illusion of bigger lips. And then finally I was like this lip liner isn’t doing it. I ended up getting my lips done.”
Kylie’s lip transformation really did change her entire face.
