Kylie Jenner has begun using lip fillers again, and took to Instagram to give her fans an update.
The beauty mogul made the announcement on her Instagram story on Tuesday, expressing gratitude toward her cosmetic dermatologist, Pawnta of Pawnta Cosmetic Dermatology in Beverly Hills for “coming through last night with a lip touch up.” Pawnta posted the photo to her own Instagram account, writing, “Love ❤️ the natural 💋lip-pout I’ve created for this beauty queen 👸 @kyliejenner. It was a pleasure to see you again 💙”
Kylie famously removed her lip fillers not long ago, however she never uncovered the reason behind it or if would be a perpetual change. She started getting fillers when she was a teenager, after a boy made her feel insecure about her “small lips.”
“I was 15, and I was insecure about my lips,” she revealed on a 2017 episode of Life of Kylie. “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 over line 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.”
Although she’s back to using lip fillers, Kylie Jenner revealed in a recent interview that she wants to take a more natural approach to beauty and practice self-love, considering that she’s a mom now. “I feel like having a daughter, and thinking about beauty in the future, has definitely changed me, and I feel like it has made me love myself more and accept everything about me,” she told Vogue Australia in an interview accompanying her September cover, on which she appeared makeup-free. “It’s just having a different outlook on life so I can pass that on to her. I want to be an example for her. What kind of example would I be if she said she didn’t like her ears, and then I didn’t like them either? I just want to teach her that. I’m trying to love myself more.”
