Remember when ELLE Canada referred to the Dashiki as the “newest it-item?” Well, for similar reasons, 2015 was the year of full lips.
This can probably be attributed to the firestorm Kylie Jenner set off with her dramatic lip-fillers. After all, her recently released “Kylie Lip Kit” sold-out in 30 seconds. Clearly, today’s women are willing to shell out dollars to achieve a larger pout and for many, the youngest Kardashian is their inspiration.
But, it wasn’t always this way. In fact, women (especially women of color) were once shamed for having full lips. How things have changed, right? Pop culture’s latest beauty obsession could be considered another instance of cultural appropriation.
In honor of what many have chosen to label “trendy,” we’ve decided to admire 50 women with naturally fuller lips in all their beauty. No lip kit needed.
