Okay, let's be honest with this one! Every time you look in the mirror, do you see yourself as a good-looking, healthy, and confident person?
Most of us aren't satisfied with our appearance and want to enhance it. If you feel the same, know that you're not alone. Even famous faces like Kylie Jenner have insecurities. But what sets them apart is that, unlike others who hide their feelings, these celebs own them and use them to make a difference in the world.
Kylie Jenner’s recent video interview
On July 9, 2021, a video shared on Kylie Jenner's YouTube channel shed light on the origin of Kylie Cosmetics. The clip revealed the struggles faced by the makeup mogul and how it pushed her to get temporary lip fillers. It also served as a marketing campaign for her company, which recently announced going vegan and clean with new products launching on July 15.
"Overlined lips to make them look bigger"
In the video, Jenner disclosed that from a young age, she felt insecure about her lips. Two weeks back on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion with Andy Cohen, she’d opened up about her insecurity. She said that her feelings began with her first kiss when a boy pointed out that her lips were too small. After that, Jenner started feeling she wasn’t kissable.
During the eight-minute video, she stated that she often scouted makeup stores for lip-liners that matched her natural lip color. When she found them, she would overline her lips to make them look bigger. That's when the 23-year-old decided to get temporary lip fillers to overcome her insecurities. Later, aged 17, she chose to launch her makeup brand Kylie Cosmetics.
Jenner continued that now when she sees her life revolving around makeup, at times, she feels weird. However, the doting mom regarded it as a part of her DNA. She believed that maybe she was meant to feel insecure to find her company and get her self-confidence back.
Confidence and peace
In the clip, a playful Stormi also appeared for a short span. She first sat on Jenner's lap and then jumped off to grab some candies kept beside her mom. Seeing her running around, Jenner playfully yelled at the toddler to get out of the room.
The founder of Kylie Skin then went on to speak about the negativity on the internet. She said that people pinpoint every little detail, even the ones a person won't be able to identify in a million years. At times this becomes frustrating, but sometimes it makes you who you are.
Perhaps being on the internet is not so bad at all. And neither is turning your weaknesses into your strengths. What do you say?
