Is our girl Kylie going back to basics or just changing up her iconic look? On Sunday Jenner posted an Instagram with close friend Anastasia Karanoikolaou. Jenner is shown posing in an all-black tank top and pants with her short dark hair pulled away from her face–the photo is captioned “heat wave.” When a fan commented “she looks like the old Kylie here idk why” Jenner responded–”I got rid of all my filler.” The post has since been filled with fans praising Jenner for her beauty and returning to her natural lips.
Many have speculated that the birth of her daughter, Stormi, has led Jenner to embrace her more natural self. She has posted numerous makeup-free posts and Instagram stories showing off her freckles and clear skin. Over the weekend, Jenner also posted a revealing Q&A to her YouTube channel with BFF Jordyn Woods. In the video, Jenner discussed one trait daughter Stormi did not receive from her mother–her natural lips. “The one thing I was insecure about, she has” Jenner stated, “She has the most perfect lips in the entire world. She didn’t get those from me, I thank her dad for those.”
Jenner has discussed this insecurity surrounding her pout in the past. On a 2017 episode of The Life of Kylie, the youngest Jenner/Kardashian confessed that she first considered plastic surgery after a boy made a mean comment about her appearance. “I had really small lips. It was one of my first kisses, and a guy said ‘I didn’t think you were going to be such a good kisser because your lips are small.’ I took that really hard. Just…when a guy you like says that, it really affected me. I didn’t feel desirable or pretty” said Jenner. Ouch.
Her lip transformation turned heads throughout 2015 and Jenner capitalized on the attention–launching Kylie Cosmetics in early 2016 with the Kylie Lip Kit. The company was an instant success and is projected to be worth over $1 billion by 2022.
Kylie has openly admitted to having her lips surgically altered more than once but what about the rest of her face and body? The Kardashians have all had some sort of work done on their faces. It is impossible to ignore the differences in Kim’s chin shape, Khloe’s slimmed down nose or Kris’ wrinkle-free forehead. But most recently all eyes have been on Kylie’s curves.
Speculation of breast, butt, and hip implants have circulated wildly for years due to the startling differences between her past and current physique. Yet, Jenner has denied having any plastic surgery done beyond her lips. Instead, she has pointed to her body maturing, gaining weight, wearing flattering outfits and getting help from push-up bras and waist trainers. She has even blamed her time of the month on leading to her breasts looking larger in certain photos.
However, one surgeon told Cosmopolitan Jenner has likely undergone multiple procedures including fat transfers to her hips, butt and breast augmentation. There are noticeable differences in her nose and cheekbone shapes as well.
Whether or not Kylie Jenner has truly had more procedures than she is willing to admit right now, we are happy to hear she has decided to embrace her natural pout. Everyone has their insecurities and while plastic surgery is highly controversial, it is ultimately up to the individual on what is best for their own body and self-esteem. However, natural beauty is much cheaper and safer. We cannot wait to see where Kylie takes her look next.
