The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge
Who doesn’t want fuller looking lips that seem to defy gravity? Well unless you’ve been living under a rock – you’ll no doubt have heard about the Kylie Jenner lip challenge. We have to point something out though to anyone thinking of taking on the challenge, and this may come as a bit of a shock. Kylie Jenner, daughter of Bruce and half-sister to Kim Kardashian herself, recently admitted that her lips have undergone ‘a little’ work to achieve their much envied plumpness. That hasn’t stopped fans and followers all around the world trying to replicate Kylie’s famous pouty lips, and some of the lengths that they’ve gone to are as crazy as they are dangerous!
The Vacuum Cleaner Technique
We’ve all tried to vacuum our extremities at some point in life – and lips are often one of the most entertainment body parts to suck up in to a vacuum nozzle. One of the main problems with this technique is that vacuum cleaners are supposed to suck up dirt and debris. That means that unless you poured anti-bacterial chemicals all over the nozzle – you’ll be rubbing all sorts of germs on to your sensitive lips. It’s not just that either – even if you did bleach the bits beforehand, you might find your skin lightening unintentionally!
Suck Some Plastic
You read that right – plastic has been the next go to in order to obtain 17 year old Kylie’s luscious lips. Bottle tops, lids and everything in between have been used, and the trick is to suck in while the blood in your lips is pressurised in to action. Yes your lips might look a lot more plumped by the end of the activity, but (look away if you’re squeamish) there have been stories of lips bursting and bleeding with this technique!
Rub a Dub Dub
Massage is good for everyone, and this method happens to be the safest of the lot by a clear mile. By gently rubbing your lips for ten to fifteen minutes a day, the blood will circulate much more efficiently and the result is often a much plumper appearance. Kylie’s surgery has all but guaranteed that her lips stay looking fresh and plump for the years ahead, and this massaging technique could boast similar results if practiced consistently. Just don’t rub too hard – your lips aren’t supposed to be punished too much, and the soft skin may suffer as a consequence!
These are just a few of the techniques that fans have been trying. We’d love to hear more about your attempts and successes. In fact, anything that is effective and doesn’t risk life and limb is great, so just be sure to stay safe if you’re thinking of undertaking this challenge yourself!
