Kylie Jenner Explains Her Reasons For Getting Lip Fillers to Complex Magazineby Sonia Amoako Wednesday, October 12th, 2016 .
Kylie Jenner poses topless for the latest issue of Complex Magazine and explains why she got lip fillers.
She told the magazine, ‘It has been an insecurity of mine all my life.’
She recalled a story in middle school on how a boy reacted to her lips, ‘This guy I kissed was like, “Your lips are really small but you’re a really good kisser. I didn’t think you were gonna be good at kissing.”‘
From then on, the 19 year old was self conscious and felt boys would stare at her lips and not want to kiss her. Rumours she had work done on her lips started to hit the media back in 2014, at the time she denied this and said her plump pout was down to the trick of over lining her lips.
However in 2015 she finally admitted to having the fillers, starting at the age of 16, on an episode of her families show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. On her reasons for lying the Kylie Lip Kit entrepreneur said, ‘I didn’t want to be a bad influence. I didn’t want people to think you had to get your lips done to feel good about yourself.’
I don’t think we’re the only ones in thinking her lips looked slyly over the top at one point. Kylie admitted to going a bit far, ‘When you first get them done, you’re like, “Oh, it could be a little bit bigger on that side.” I’d go back and be like, “They went down” and think they could be bigger. But I went too far. It was very painful.’
Her lips definitely look plump in the photoshoot.
The October issue is out now.
