Ah, yes. A day late due to life’s surprises, but the least I can do is give you folks something instead of just leaving you hanging until Deal Steal Sundays.
And yes, I’m going to address the infamous #KylieJennerChallenge. I’m sure the topic itself has been beaten today by the numerous criticisms over people (mainly prepubescent or teenage and yes, occasionally the grown woman) trying to imitate Kylie’s famous puckers using a glass jar or plastic bottle or anything that can serve as a vacuum of sorts, resulting in severely swollen lips (and in one case that I’ve heart, a pair of exploded puckers and another case involving the vagina. Yes, someone decided to use their vagina instead of their lips).
The criticisms all focus on how stupid people are for doing the #KylieJennerChallenge, but people fail to address the fact that it just shows the lengths that people are willing to go through to imitate a celebrity to “feel beautiful.” Now, no one’s ever said that but I used quotations to give it a name to work with.
Rather than criticize people for doing the #KylieJennerChallenge, why don’t we criticize the fact that we’ve created a beauty culture that has encouraged women to take on dangerous methods just to “feel beautiful?”
