Up until recently, big lips were the bushy brows of beauty. Everyone wanted them and just like that, they became the most coveted accessory amongst the style set and beyond.
Kylie Jenner may spring to mind as she was allegedly the reason behind this surge of augmentation in 2016 after stepping out with a noticeably fuller pout. And soon after, Kylie Cosmetics was born. It’s essentially a lip kit aimed at recreating her fuller lips with clever lining and matte shades but two years on, things seemed to have taken a turn. Jenner, who at the tender age of 20 is set to be the worlds youngest ever billionaire, decided to abandon lip fillers, sending her fans and let’s face it, the rest of the world into a tailspin. The natural look appears to be taking precedence and has received positive reviews from her fans. The announcement however wasn’t made officially. She simply responded to an Instagram comment saying she got rid of all of her fillers and the internet almost broke minutes later.
The Forbes cover star’s decision comes at a time when cosmetic trends are changing to give way to a more natural look. Stars like Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston claim they gave up on injections after getting negative responses from the public and media.
