Kylie Jenner has recently become a role model (mainly because of her looks) for tons of teenagers and young adults from all across the globe. And now she’s advising people to just be themselves and stop trying to look like her.
The 17 year old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has made countless teenagers across the world envious of her full lips (which weren’t really that full a year and a half ago). Unfortunately, many teens and young adults have started performing all sorts of dangerous stunts in desperate attempts to get Jenner’s pouty lips. Mostly, these practices include sucking on bottle caps or just using the so-called lip enhancers, which work on the same method – creating a vacuum, which stops the blood flow to the lips and makes them appear large for a short period of time.

Unfortunately, these things create not only nasty looking bruises, swelling and irritation, but they can also cause severe pain and even health problems as well. Twitter users have started a trend with the hashtag #KylieJennerChallenge and they share before and after pictures of the results with it. Of course, there’s also the hashtag #KylieJennerChallengeGoneWrong, which shows exactly what happens when you try to get those Kylie Jenner style lips at home.
The trend has affected so many mindless people that Kylie herself has felt the need to reach out to those girls and to ask them to stop trying to look like her. She used her official Twitter page to post a couple of tweets regarding the matter. The 17 year old stated that she doesn’t want to encourage people to look like her or to think that they should look like that at all, and that she wants to encourage people to be themselves.
