Why Kylie Jenner’s make-up free photo is the picture all 15-year-old girls need to see


WHEN this image of a fresh-faced smiling younger lady popped up among the many typical gloom-laden Covid-19 headlines, I’m certain I wasn’t alone in considering: “Who on earth is that?’

In spite of everything, the superbly fairly lady seems to be like so many people in lock-down – make-up free, wearing our comfiest sweatpants, topped off with the brand new regular couldn’t-care-less ponytail.

So once I learn that the lady was none apart from billionaire magnificence guru Kylie Jenner, breaking out of quarantine, I used to be amazed.

Not solely as a result of the 22-year-old has been telling her 171 million instagram followers to remain at house to remain protected. 

But additionally as a result of it regarded like Kylie had been changed with somebody barely recognisable because the world’s largest social media star.

Gone had been the total lips, mascara-laden lashes, the pore-free complexion and sculpted cheekbones we all know so effectively from her feed.

In her place was a wonderfully fairly lady, the type we’d see any day of the week on our native excessive road, if solely we had been allowed to exit.

With entry little doubt denied to her Hollywood aesthetician, onlookers might additionally not fail to see Kylie’s lips are actually barely much less pouty than typical. 

However that is greater than only a gotcha pic of a celeb caught out wanting much less glam than they’d like.

As a mum of two teenagers and a parenting writer, I’d say this candid shot of Kylie is one that each younger lady can study from.

In the intervening time, like most youngsters, my 15-year-old daughter Clio is doing on-line education at house.

However when she took a break from her chemistry, I took the chance to indicate her the brand new photograph of Kylie to get her occupied with how large the gulf may be between how celebs and influencers look on-line, in contrast with actual life.  

And in my opinion, it’s a picture that teaches a lesson each bit as vital as Clio studying her periodic desk.

Whereas nonetheless completely fairly, it’s a transparent reminder that Kylie’s ‘insta-face’, crafted with the assistance of heavy make-up, lighting and filters, is the model on which she has constructed her billion greenback make-up enterprise.

However let’s not overlook that whereas Kylie has raked in a fortune, the associated fee to our daughters has been extra than simply the worth of considered one of her well-known lip kits.

It means our daughters spend valuable hours making an attempt to get the lighting and angles good to appear to be Kylie –  when not even Kylie seems to be like Kylie.

If uncovered to social media too quickly, this fruitless objective means they shortly develop up believing that they ‘want’ to put on make-up to really feel ‘assured’ – when it’s competing for likes which has made them really feel unconfident within the first place.

Extra worryingly, plainly devoting a lot imitating social media is even standing in the way in which of our ladies’ well being and well-being.
