Royal Crowning: Kylie Jenner

Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 11.59.10 AMI was waiting for some unknown, right time to dedicate a Royal Crowning to Kylie. This week it felt right. The Jenners are totally the new Kardashians. And Kylie admitting to getting lip filler has made me even more obsessed with this girl who’s 10 years my junior. I’m shameless that one of my top beauty icons is still in her teens.

Sure, a lot of people think Kylie looks ridiculous. A lot of people think I’m ridiculous. We all have differences of opinion. I happen to think we’re both pretty great. In my eyes, Kylie is GORGEOUS. She is bomb at doing her makeup. I would genuinely rather have Miss Jenner do my makeup over 98% of licensed makeup artists. Her doe-y, heavily lashed eyes inspired me to get lash extensions in the first place.

I love that she’s embraced her older sister’s high-glam look. This isn’t a recent development. There’s an old Keeping Up episode in which Bruce thinks 12-year-old Kylie is wearing too much eyeliner.

Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 12.04.53 PMKendall is also striking, but that’s an all natural beauty. Kendall’s born with it. With Kylie, it may be Maybelline. I don’t think natural beauty trumps achieved beauty. Pretty is pretty no matter how you get it. I do think you can copy Kylie’s look, but there’s not much you can do to look like Kendall. Oh, but please don’t try the #kyliejennerlipchallenge. Now you know how to get them safely. (Not that I’m advocating teens to run to the med spa.)

Naturally, I will have a post on lip injections up tomorrow.

I think it’s pretty awesome that Kylie has come clean. Proud of you, girl! (Seems like nothing after her dad’s big reveal!) It’s refreshing to hear plastic surgery admission from a celebrity, albeit it took a while.  I don’t care if she’s gotten other work

done to get her to look the way she does now. Regardless of what she has done or hasn’t done, she looks fabulous in my opinion. I repeat, my opinion. I like her plushy, over lined lips. Call me Jersey.

ALLLSSOOO, do you realize how much a girl’s face can change with age, weight, waxing, and proper makeup application?! If you look back on photos of me in high school or college, you’d think I got a brow lift and a nose job too. I’ve had Bachelor fans and friends insist my nose has been altered. I swear I’d own up to it if I had done it. I haven’t gone under the knife and I don’t think Kylie has either. I think going under less invasive needles, on the other hand, is a completely different thing.

Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 4.21.23 PMWe should all be happy for Kyizzle. She has gained so much confidence. You can see this in how she presents herself. She’s admitted to feeling like the ugly sister before and now she feels like she belongs. I know people are going to argue that looks shouldn’t determine whether you “belong” or not, but in the Kardashian family it undoubtably does. Also, like it or not, as humans we are visual creatures and vanity exists. Get over it.

Kylie has an amazing personal style. I love how she’s a bit hip hop. She’s edgy, sexy, and is always evolving, which I think makes for a great fashion icon. Her hair is awesome whether it’s cropped at her shoulders or lower back long with extensions or jet black or colors of the rainbow. However her hair is styled, it’s hot. Hilary Duff’s blue mermaid hair is cold.

The haters are gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, but so many of us love your look, Kylie! ❤

As a true pisces, I live in a magical and delusional land in my head. In this world romances unfold the way they do in romantic comedies, everything at Sephora is free, Shake Shake burgers are a diet food, and we have the capability to clone Harry Styles.

In real life (what's that?), I spend my days pondering how Kylie Jenner's face changed so much. I'm a beauty junkie and pop culture-loving wedding videographer and freelance journalist. I have a Princess Jasmine complex. I am a Fanson (die hard Hanson fan). I enjoy belting old Celine Dion songs.

Please take everything I say seriously (I have my Masters in journalism from Syracuse University), but not too seriously (Cosmo is my favorite publication.)
