In 2015, Kylie Jenner suddenly enlarged her lips—attracting media attention. Everyone wanted to know how she made her lips so full and beautiful, expecting her to credit her famous lip lining technique. But the answer came down to fillers that accentuated her lips.
Now, recent photos reveal Jenner’s lips have returned to their natural state, prompting fans to wonder what’s going on with the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family. What happened to her signature lips? And, is it intentional? Jenner is now speaking up about her appearance for the first time since the speculation.
Noticing The Difference
Jenner recently shared a photo on Instagram of herself with friend Anastasia Karanikolaou. It didn’t take long for fans to notice that the millionaire starlet’s lips looked different. One fan commented, “She looks like the old Kylie here. I don’t know why.”
This eventually prompted Jenner to come clean and reveal the truth about her lips.
An Intentional Change
Jenner revealed she is no longer enhancing her lips with temporary fillers. It could take up to six months for the fillers to be completely removed from her lips, returning her lips to their natural state.
While this may be a surprise to most, Jenner stated that it was time for her to move on and embrace her natural lips. For the first time since 2015, Jenner is finally opening up about why she got the lip fillers in the first place.
“I Was Insecure”
Jenner’s exclusive cosmetic line, Kylie Cosmetics, was born out of her own insecurities about her lips.
“I was insecure about my lips, and lipstick is what helped me feel confident,” she said.
What started as a coping mechanism for her anxiety turned into a global phenomenon. Fans wanted “Kylie Jenner” lips, but now they will have to embrace the new change. Is Jenner happy, though? Of course! She’s confident in her new look and ready to focus on her life as a mother to her daughter, Stormi Webster.
