What Kylie Jenner's Dramatically Smaller Lips Might Mean About Her Pregnancy

While we were gawking over the Kardashian-Jenner Calvin Klein ad , eagle-eyed Kylie fans zoomed in on the sister’s biggest feature. Or, in this case, Kylie’s famous lips were much smaller than expected. Given that the 20-year-old partly made a name for herself due to her lip injections, it was a little surprising to see her pout less plumped up. Twitter was quick to point out this could be the case because Kylie is rumored to be pregnant and therefore could be unable to get the procedure .

Of course, whether or not Kylie chooses to get injections is her own damn business. It’s not really up to us to make judgment calls on anyone’s decision to get cosmetic surgery, but for the sake of good old-fashioned beauty reporting, we decided to try to get to the bottom of this rumor.

That’s why we reached out to Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research at NYC’s Mount Sinai Hospital , on whether or not Kylie’s mouth size might mean she’s about to be a mom. “Theoretically, lip injections and the product itself do not pose a risk during pregnancy,” he cleared up. “The big issue I would have with them in pregnant women surround treatment of potential side effects.” If a woman reacted to the injections adversely, and showed symptoms such as lip swelling, she might need an antibiotic to reduce that. Those medications are what’s harmful to a pregnancy, not the actual injections.

Can we trace Kylie’s alleged pregnancy – like, know how many months along she might be – through how big her lips are? Not really, said Dr. Zeichner. “Fillers gradually break down over time. It is a slow, imperceptible process rather than a drastic change,” he said.

Here’s where it gets interesting: if Kylie had her signature plumped lips, that could actually be a sign that she is pregnant, but not because of fillers. “During pregnancy, especially in the third trimester, women tend to retain fluid and develop swelling,” Dr. Zeichner added. “So the lips may actually swell on their own at the end of the pregnancy.” In other words: calm down, friends. Her lips don’t really hold any answers here.

But if Kylie is pregnant, and her mouth is smaller because she stopped injections, when can we expect to see them back in full force? Dr. Zeichner doesn’t treat the businesswoman, but in his opinion, it could take a while. “I prefer to wait until after a woman stops breastfeeding before treating with an injectable filler,” he said. “If we needed to treat any of the rare side effects it may mean she would have to stop breastfeeding otherwise.”

Pregnancy sleuthers, take note: Kylie’s lips are sealed!

The Most Iconic Oscars Beauty Missteps of All Time

We’ve all had a few unfortunate style moments, but for some celebrities, their style faux pas have been caught as photographic evidence forever. Even stars at the Oscars (arguably the biggest red carpet event of the year!) aren’t impervious to questionable hair and makeup. In anticipation of the Academy Awards this Sunday, enjoy this selection of awkward choices throughout the years, from dismaying hairstyles to egregious eye shadow looks. Try not to laugh too much – after all, everybody’s been there.

Chrissy Teigen's Love For Her Gray Hair Has the Internet Cheering "YAS, CRUELLA!"

If there’s anything we know about Chrissy Teigen, it’s that she does not hold back on Twitter. Whether she’s flaunting her shiny spray tan to her 9.6 million followers or opening up about hormonal acne , Chrissy is incredibly honest on social media, and it’s one of the million reasons we love her. Although she’s busy being pregnant with her second child and hanging out at the playground with 1-year-old Luna , Chrissy’s recent tweet praising her gray hair is empowering women all over the world to do the same.

“I have a skunk like streak of gray hair and I’m actually very into it. My Cruella dreams are coming true!” she wrote on Twitter. After Jessica Biel flaunted her gray roots at this year’s Golden Globes, we have a feeling we’re going to be seeing a lot more celebrities ditching the dye. Since tweeting about her streaks, thousands of people replied with photos of their own grays. All hail Cruella de Teigen!

40 Times Oprah Winfrey Proved She Is a Gosh Darn Beauty Icon

We’re positively screaming over the fact that television legend and beauty inspiration Oprah Winfrey made an appearance at the 2017 Emmy Awards. Often referred to as “The Most Influential Woman in the World,” Winfrey has inarguably been a style maven since her namesake daytime talk show debuted 31 years ago.

Her signature look often involves a few go-to products (she’s been rocking a bold lip like it’s her job since before many of us were born), but she’s also keen to switch things up. Case in point is her hair: she sometimes wears her natural curls, but she has also been seen repping a TV host blowout and straight bob with equal grace. No matter her hair or makeup, Oprah is always sure to wear a smile, which completes her gloriously inspirational red carpet looks.

Read on for 40 pictures of Oprah looking like #beautygoals. We promise it will make you happier than finding the keys to a free car under your seat.

This Fixer Upper Star's Beauty Picks Will Inspire a Makeup Bag Renovation

Fixer Upper‘s Joanna Gaines is so much more than a kickass home remodeling expert and interior designer – she’s actually a pretty savvy beauty gal. In a post to her blog, Magnolia , she revealed her top essential products to her curious fans.

As it turns out, she does her own makeup for the hit HGTV show. “This is actually my choice,” she confessed. “I don’t really love to have a team of people swarming me to touch up my blush and ‘shine spots.'”

Considering Joanna (along with husband Chip) runs a bakery, bed and breakfast, magazine, and home store, and raises four children (whew!), we’re impressed that she takes on that challenge! Perhaps for her own sanity, she likes to keep things simple in the beauty category. She disclosed 10 “pretty basic” but classic products that you’re sure to love as much as she does.

All About Princess Diana's Signature Beauty Look, Straight From Her Makeup Artist

Since starting her makeup tutorial channel, Lisa Eldridge has been receiving requests for a tutorial inspired by Princess Diana. Admittedly, the professional makeup artist had never met the late icon and therefore felt “uneasy” about replicating her beauty look. In honor of the 20th anniversary of Diana’s untimely death , however, Lisa did the next best thing: she contacted Diana’s personal makeup artist.

In the YouTube video, Mary Greenwell spoke about her experience as Diana’s makeup artist. “I was so privileged to do her makeup for a few years before her untimely passing,” she said. “Now, she was an icon. Actually, even in her passing, is an icon. We all loved her so much.”

On Diana’s makeup preferences, Mary said she always kept it “very, very simple.” Mary admitted that makeup has changed quite a bit these past two decades, so she slightly updated Diana’s signature look for the purposes of the tutorial.

As you can imagine, working with Diana was a life-changing experience for the makeup artist. Mary said, “Her skin was immaculate – beautiful, gorgeous skin.” Adding, “She was so appealing . . . She was so sexy without meaning to be.”

At the start of her tutorial, Mary prepped her model’s skin, applied Laura Mercier’s Foundation Primer ($38), and then YSL’s Fusion Ink Cushion Foundation – which is unfortunately not widely available in the United States. As an alternative, try Lancôme’s Cushion Foundation ($47).

For the eye makeup, Mary applied a subtle highlighter underneath the brow bone and created a purple smoky eye using a drugstore eye-shadow palette only available in the UK. She then added brown eyeliner to the lash line and blended it out with a precise brush. Mary finished the eye makeup with several coats of mascara, as she would “never have used false eyelashes on Princess Diana.” On the eyebrows, Mary simply used Tom Ford’s Fiber Brow Gel .

Though contouring was not a makeup phenomenon during Diana’s time, Mary applied what she calls a “relaxed” version of the technique. Mary blended very light contour just under each cheekbone, then applied just a little highlighter onto each cheekbone. Since Diana loved suntanning, Mary did add a good amount of bronzer using the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit ($80) in Surreal Light. She finished the look with a light salmon pink lipstick.

Reflecting on the finished look, Mary said, “This was all inspired by the beautiful Lady Diana. I can’t thank her enough for allowing me to be in her life.” Watch the touching tutorial in its entirety, above.

Prepare to Be Amazed at Jennifer Lopez With "No Hair, No Makeup, No Nothing"

Getting ready for show night… #jlovegas #allihave #letsgetit

A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on Jun 2, 2017 at 7:19pm PDT

Between her enviable figure and timeless appearance, Jennifer Lopez has been the definition of goals for the last two decades. While we know her body has remained toned to perfection through the years , her latest post is proving that even behind the makeup, her glowing skin hasn’t aged either.

The 47-year-old singer-turned-actress recently took to Instagram to share a video of herself before the “All I Have” Las Vegas show, flaunting her glowing, hydrated, radiating skin and all we have to say is wow. “So this is what it’s like before the show,” she says in the video above. “I sit here, no hair, no makeup, no nothing. Trying to get mentally prepared to give you all I have.”

But that’s not all. The next day, J Lo shared a photo from her day at the pool with boyfriend Alex Rodriguez and their respective adorable children, where we see the fresh-faced superstar glowing sans makeup.

Here’s J Lo looking stunning at the pool.

Happy Sunday everybody!! #sundayfunday 💙💙💙💙💙💙📷@lacarba

And here’s how J Lo looks with a similar hairstyle and a full face of makeup.

While she’s always looking beautiful with makeup, we are amazed at how equally beautiful she looks without all the product. Last year, J Lo shared some of her anti-aging secrets with POPSUGAR , where she revealed that SPF is the key to “maintain a healthy glow.”

“I also think that regular workouts, lots of water, and fresh foods all play into the quality of skin’s appearance, plus the obvious removal of makeup at the end of the day,” she explained. “Without all of these, you’re not setting your face creams or facials up for success.”


Khloe Kardashian Looks Totally Different Without This 1 Contour Hack

Seeing celebrities without makeup is somewhat of a guilty pleasure for us, and we now know what one member of the famously contour-savvy Kardashian clan looks like when she’s not all dolled up.

After documenting an intense workout with her personal trainer, Khloé Kardashian sat down for a quick postshower Snapchat session with a fresh face and slicked-back wet hair. In her selfie videos, it looks like she wasn’t wearing any makeup (besides what appears to be a bit of eyebrow product and some understated false lashes). We can’t help but notice how her nose looks different than usual when she doesn’t have any makeup on.

Khloé has gone on record to say that, no , she has not had a nose job – and she even explained why her nose shape changes. “When you’re pregnant, your nose spreads because there’s fat pockets in there, I guess,” she said on Kocktails With Khloé. “So when I lost weight, my nose did get smaller, and also I now know about contouring. Like when I wash my face, my nose is wider.”

The reality star looks gorgeous with or without makeup on (#SkinGoals), but these snaps are a testament to her superior contouring skills.

Here’s another makeup-free Snapchat shot of Khloé.

And here’s what she looks like all dolled up from the same angle.

Selena Gomez's Sexy Selfie Proves Why She's the Most-Followed Person on Instagram

If you spent a good five minutes starring at the latest Selena Gomez selfie to trend on Instagram, you weren’t alone. There’s a lot happening in the gorgeous photo – and we could not take our eyes off of the most-followed celebrity (and person!) on the social media platform.

Selena’s makeup artist Hung Vanngo shared the image above on June 4 with the caption: “Babe is in New York tonight.” In the image, we see the Hollywood It girl rocking a smoldering smoky eye and glossy nude lips created by Vanngo.

Her effortlessly chic beach waves were created by hairstylist Danielle Priano. The style – featuring loose waves and straight ends – reminds of this throwback Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen look from 2012. Though, the twins were wearing it for years before then:

Creating this look at home is pretty easy. If your hair is natural curly or wavy, let it air dry with a products like a cocktail of Ouai Curl Jelly ($26) and Sally Hershberger 24K Beach Glam Mineral Spray ($28) to give it a rope-y texture. Then use a flatiron to straighten just the bottom one to two inches of your hair, which relaxes the curls. If your hair is straight, then twist it in different directions alternating around your head with a 0.75-inch curling irons like the Beachwaver S.75 Curling Iron ($129). Leave the bottom one to two inches out of the curling iron to achieve the same effect. Finish with a texturing hairspray – our favorite is Shu Uemura Texture Wave ($39).

What makes this style even better is sleeping on it – or just having a fabulous Saturday night out. The added oils to your mane will make it look even messier and sexier.

See All Angles of Pippa Middleton's Elegant Wedding Updo

If a wedding is the time to be the most elegant version of yourself, Pippa Middleton won that game. The famous sister of the Duchess of Cambridge got married to James Matthews in England on May 20, wearing a gorgeous lace gown with a mock turtleneck.

To show off that stunning dress, she wore her hair in a classic updo. It was twisted around the back with a crystal Robinson Pelham headband crown and a simple Stephen Jones veil. It is reported that stylist Pol Garcia created the sophisticated hairstyle.

When it came to makeup, she looked glowy in neutral colors that accentuated her features. We see this gorgeous wedding style making its way to many Pinterest boards soon!

Kylie Jenner's Makeup-Free Selfies Reveals a Feature We Always Forget About

On her Snapchat, Kylie Jenner recently acknowledged a cute facial feature we rarely see due to the dramatic makeup she loves to wear: her freckles. Kylie paired the snap with a caption that read, “When everyone’s drawing on freckles but ur [sic] always covering yours.”

This isn’t the first time Kylie’s highlighted her beauty spots . In another makeup-free selfie from a few months ago, she shared a “freckle appreciation post” after a fan claimed she doesn’t embrace them enough.

When POPSUGAR Beauty spoke to Kendall Jenner , she revealed that she too has freckles – although she admitted they’re really slight and practically unnoticeable – so it seems to be a shared characteristic among the sisters. She went on to share a second fresh-faced selfie the next day.

For the record: we are so here for your freckle appreciation posts , Kylie. Just saying.

5 No-Fail Beauty Tips I Learned on the Set of Telenovelas

Singer, actress, fashion designer, entrepreneur, writer, and mom of two Thalia shares her parenting, lifestyle, fashion, and beauty tips as POPSUGAR Latina’s contributor.

After appearing in so many telenovelas and working with so many different makeup artists, makeup brands, and hairstylists who changed my look for each role and sometimes several times in one day, I walked away with a few tricks up my sleeve. Here are five of my favorite and most useful ones.

You'll Be Surprised by How Simple Kendall Jenner's Beauty Routine Is

While we can appreciate the difference between Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s individual looks , it’s Kendall’s flawless complexion and natural beauty that we most envy. Lucky for us, the 20-year-old Estée Lauder ambassador spilled her surprisingly simple beauty tips to MIMI , which we no doubt will be applying to our nighttime regimen tonight. For Kendall, it’s all about hydrating and keeping things to a minimum. Scroll to find out how you too can achieve model-like skin .

Kylie Jenner's Favorite Blemish Zapper Is a Beauty Editor Favorite

I’m sure you thought that the trick to Kylie Jenner having clear skin is just: “being 18 years old!” We’ve got a sense of humor about all things Kardashian, too. But it’s time everyone realizes that Kylie Jenner is a beauty afficionado. You might not like her “glam,” you might think she’s too young to enhance her looks, but time and time again, Kylie has proven to us that she knows the biz. Whether she’s snapping about a $9 drugstore makeup remover (albeit, hers is monogrammed and bedazzled), touting a shade from her lip kit , or breaking down her favorite faux lashes , we consistently favor Kylie’s favorite products. Which is why we’re not surprised that she is in-the-know about spot treatments.

Kylie recently snapped about the aforementioned makeup remover, Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate ($46) and the holy grail of spot treatments, otherwise known as Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion ($17). Beauty editors and skin care junkies love this product because it works: it reduces the size of the blemish and the redness overnight and can even bring blemishes to the surface for easier extractions.

Kylie filmed a mini Snapchat demo on how to use the product, emphasizing that you do not shake the product, but instead use a cotton swab to dip into the solution and spot treat. I personally fell in love with this brand in middle school after reading that Hilary Duff loved the rosewater spray. The Drying Lotion works wonders for breakouts, and at almost $20, it’s a considerable beauty investment – but worth every penny. (It lasts you months, though, so it definitely gives major bang for your bucks.) We even made a homemade version – that’s how much we adore it.

I spoke with Mario Badescu ‘s PR manager, Nicole Darmanin, to see if Kylie’s influence affected sales of the product. “After Kylie snapped, we immediately started receiving phone calls and there was an instant uptick in sales. The Kylie buzz was instantaneous!” said Darmanin. Ah, Kylie Jenner : a modern-day beauty savant. Perhaps she has a future as an editor? (You know, after running her Lip Kit empire.)

Lo Bosworth's Beauty Must Have Is Probably Already in Your House

Lo Bosworth ‘s website, The Lo Down , covers everything from cooking to beauty, and we can say with authority that she’s an expert when it comes to the latter. It’s almost as if her entire being glows when she enters a room, so it’s no surprise that Arm & Hammer chose the star to be its beauty spokesperson. Lo’s beauty prowess seems almost innate, and her tips for incorporating baking soda into your beauty routine are life changing.

The Laguna Beach and The Hills alumna made the cross-country jump from LA to New York last year and we have to say, she’s got the East Coast vibe down pat. She’s managed to juggle adjusting to a different city, redecorating a new (and superdreamy) apartment, and spearheading a lifestyle brand with the poise we’d expect from the young businesswoman.

On top of all that, she always keeps her skin and hair on point – not a blemish in sight nor a tousled blond strand out of place. We sat down with Lo and she dished her secret skin care weapon, in addition to reminiscing about the MTV series that made us fall in love with her way back when.

Olivia Munn Shares 4 Secrets to Antiaging That Don't Include Botox

As y’all know, I’m a big believer that most women in their 20s and 30s don’t need cosmetic surgeries , such as Botox. So I was thrilled when Olivia Munn, who is four years my senior at 34, shared the Instagram and message below. In it, the gorgeous actress reveals her theories and own findings when it comes to discovering natural antiaging methods.

She writes: “Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I love research. Convinced that there’s got to be natural, healthy ways (ie not only the rich and connected can do it) to keep your skin from aging, I do lots of research.”

Then she shares four methods that kept her own face looking fresh: losing weight, reshaping her brows, using Proactiv Mark Correcting Pads to reduce her sun spots, and eating Japanese potatoes (that, according to Olivia, “are high in hyaluronic acid [to] help keep wrinkles away”).

Keep reading to learn more about her secrets of youth, and hopefully it will inspire your own healthy habits!

Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I love research. Convinced that there’s got to be natural, healthy ways (ie not only the rich and connected can do it) to keep your skin from aging, I do lots of research. Who says guys are the only ones who can get better with age? We’re gonna turn that myth around if we share what we learn with each other. So here are 4 skin tips I’ve learned just over this past year that really helped the texture and shape of my face. Left Pic: 1 year ago. Right Pic: Last month. 1. I lost 12 pounds this past year while training for Xmen. I kept it off by coming up w/an hour workout I do a few times a week. The weight loss leaned out my cheeks and jawline. Working out is also great for your skin because it increases blood flow to your face which helps rejuvenate. 2. Reshaped my brows. I do my own brows and always thought they were supposed to have a high arch. Then a facialist pointed out to me that I was shaping my brows into a frown. So I let the top of my brows grow in (which is never fun because it looks spotty for a few weeks) and then I plucked the bottom. That gave my brows a more horizontal angle and instantly brightened my eyes. 3. Got rid of sunspots. I love my freckles. But over the past couple of years I’ve seen more come up and merge with other freckles to make large dark spots. Dark spots prevent your skin from reflecting light and gives you a dull complexion. So for the past year I’ve been diligently using @Proactiv Mark Fading Pads. I wipe my face with one every night and now my face has a more even tone and the large spots aren’t as noticeable. 4. I’ve talked about this before and I still stand by it: Japanese potatoes that are high in Hyaluronic Acid help keep wrinkles away. Look up this video: “Connie Chung Yuzihara” to learn all about it. There are Hyaluronic Acid pills and vitamins but I think that the best way to get it in your system is by eating them in foods that naturally have them. I’m still looking into what gets rid of the lines that develop around your neck. I think it has to do with tension and acupuncture might be the answer. When I find out more, I’ll let you know. 👯👍

Demi Lovato's 12 Beauty Tips to Feel More Confident Every Day

Meeting Demi Lovato felt like chatting with an edgy Disney princess. She was kind and warm, yet she has that badass, girl-power attitude. When it comes to her style, the popstar is gorgeous with luminous skin, beautiful brown doe eyes, and a megawatt smile. Her pretty-girl makeup was juxtaposed by a chin-length, tousled brunette bob – which we know is tame compared to some of her rainbow-bright dye jobs .

But what makes Demi a standout in the young Hollywood crowd is her determination to empower women. Through her lyrics , inspiring quotes , and openness about her own struggles , she acknowledges that no one is perfect – not even celebrities. Demi’s latest hit song, “Confident,” sings this point home with messages like: “I used to hold my freak back. Now I’m letting go. I make my own choice. Yeah I run this show.” Who are we to disagree?

Perhaps this inner and outer beauty is what attracted NYC New York Color to tap Demi as its global ambassador . (It also scored her a hot boyfriend !)

This Is Jennifer Lopez's No. 1 Beauty Secret

Jennifer Lopez just revealed the beauty secret she swears by, and it’s totally not what you think. The multitalented singer and actress, who recently blew our minds with all her sexiness at the American Music Awards and really doesn’t seem to be aging at all, told Entertainment Tonight that her top beauty and mommy essential is – drum roll, please – sleep.

“Sleep is very important,” she said, “I get my seven to eight hours sleep no matter what.” J Lo has been busy filming Shades of Blue in New York, but snoozing is still high up on her list of priorities – not just for herself, but for her kids, Max and Emmy, too. “There is a limit. You will fall down at a certain point, and mommies can’t do that. Mommies have to be good for the babies at all times. They need to know that you’re solid and strong and good.” And there you have it! Whether you’re a mom or not, it’s called beauty rest for a reason, right?
