Like the Ice Bucket Challenge, the #KylieJennerChallenge is another viral sensation that has taken off the Internet by storm, and it’s not even for a charitable cause.
The new epidemic has teens across the country are turning to shot glasses â€” not to shoot booze, but to create grotesquely puffy lips a’la the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
Its simplicity makes it all too easy to do, not to mention dangerous: Teens place a shot glass over their lips and suck for several minutes. When they remove the glass, they have exaggeratedly full lips thanks to the suctioning.
As proof to the trend’s popularity, there are already over 65,000 posts on Instagram with the hashtag #KylieJennerChallenge, including everything from gruesome, swollen pouts to parody posts.
And what did Little Miss Jenner has to say about the potentially harmful beauty practice?
“I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look,” she wrote. “I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look,” she addressed on Twitter last Tuesday.
Rather than exposing yourself to bruises on a delicate body part such as the lips, we recommend teens to try lip-plumping products instead. The results would be less painful and safer then sucking through a shot glass.-MYNEWSHUB.CC
