How to Get the Kylie Jenner Pout
What are sisters good for, if not to spill your most hidden beauty secrets to the whole world? That’s exactly what big sister Kim Kardashian-West did to younger sister (and current beauty sensation) Kylie Jenner, 17, when she met with YouTube Channel Pixiwoo.
“She draws her lip and it looks amazing. I go into her room and I’m like ‘What liner do you wear?’, because she only wears a lip liner. She doesn’t wear lipstick or lip gloss,” Kardashian-West told Pixiwoo. “She goes between Soar… Maybe it’s Spice and Soar. Maybe Whirl. She’s so good at makeup. Every event, she only does it herself,” Kardashian-West added.
So taking this priceless pearl of wisdom Kim K granted us mere, makeup-loving mortals, we now have an inkling (at least) of how to get the “Kylie lip.”
Start out with a lip-liner closest to your natural lip color (MAC features a bunch of nude-friendly colors like Naked Liner and Subculture, both $16), and fill in the entire lip. From there (once everything is the same, flesh-toned color), it will be easier to literally draw on your lips, just like Kylie. Lightly rim just outside of your lips’ natural shape, gradually going further until you’ve reached the “size” you want (or when you start to feel clownish). Then, take one of the Kylie-approved colors, like MAC’s Soar, $16, and enhance your lips’ cupid’s bow. Darken the new lines of your lips with the darker liner color to create the allusion of bigger, plumper lips.
Finish off the look with filling in everything with the same nude color used before, so the emphasis is on the darker, lip-enhancing liner.
And there you have it, bigger, Kylie-inspired lips with only two products. Thank-you, Kim K!
