You know you've made it when there's a viral hashtag on social media dedicated to your lips. So is the case for Kylie Jenner, who is constantly questioned ("Has she or hasn't she?") for getting plastic surgery to enhance and plump up her pout. Recently, she stopped being so tight-lipped (ha!) about the rumors. At the launch for her new line of hair extensions, Kylie Hair Couture, Kylie told E! News what she thought of all the gossip.
"I feel like everyone has been talking about it for months, so I'm kind of sick of it," she said. "In my pictures, I pout them out a lot. I think big lips are awesome." Kylie hasn't admitted to using any lip plumping devices or injections, but she credits makeup for giving her that enhanced pucker. "I love lip liner and overlining my lips," Kylie said. "But I don't even care anymore. I'm like whatever, just say whatever you want." This comes just a few short weeks after she took to Twitter to address the media frenzy around her mouth.
"How long are we gonna talk about this lip thing lmao," she wrote.
"Let's get a our lives together guys and talk about some important sh*t," Kylie added.
"Just talk about something new at least. I'm bored," she concluded.
During an interview with beauty duo Pixiwoo, her older sister Kim Kardashian shared the trick behind Kylie's voluminous pout. "Kylie draws her lip like this," she said, tracing her finger over her upper lip. "She's so good at makeup. She only wears a lip liner and fills it in. She doesn't wear a lipstick or a gloss." Kim recognizes skill when she sees it. She's a master at contouring herself, and that passion for cosmetics seems to be contagious! It's spread throughout the entire Kardashian-Jenner crew, including baby North.
Suki Waterhouse and her little sister Maddi (a self-proclaimed Kylie fan) have also hopped on the #kyliejennerlips selfie trend. Suki posted a picture of her sister on Instagram rocking Kylie's signature overdrawn, glossy mauve pout and dramatically arched eyebrows. "Presenting @maddiwaterhouse as @kyliejenner," read the caption, while Maddi's repost of the same snap read, "Am I @kyliejenner yet?" The Waterhouse sisters' father happens to be a plastic surgeon, so it's possible that Maddi's luscious lips could be the result of more than just makeup.
It's clear that Kardashian worshippers, haters, and makeup artists aren't done trying to figure out the secret to Kylie's full, curvaceous pucker. Her sexy smirk isn't going anywhere anytime soon, so we rounded up tools to help you make your own lips look fuller — no injections necessary!
