It’s no secret that the Kardashians have a penchant for a good Instagram filter.
Kylie Jenner rarely shares an Instagram story without a filter across her face – and has been met with backlash from fans who argue she’s promoting unhealthy body standards. Indeed, cosmetic surgeons credit the famous family with sparking a trend for ‘filtered skin’, noting that young women bring pictures of the sisters into clinics in the hope of emulating them. Not cool.
And now, in a rare move, after years of leaving her fans pondering what her real skin looks like, Kylie has shared a filter-free photo of her skin texture in all its glory.
This weekend, the youngest of the brood took to social media to share a post-glam room snap of her face (zoomed in and all!) with zero filter. “No filter baby,” she captioned the candid snap.
You look amazing, Kylie!
The star shot the video to promote her new leopard-themed makeup collection. Kylie filmed an entire tutorial using the line and ditched the filters to demonstrate what her products look like in real life. We like to see it.
Kylie used her new leopard-inspired eye shadow palette — including Feline Fine, Seeing Stripes, and Golden Speed – to create a neutral brown smoky eye with a touch of gold placed on her inner corners, bright pink blush, and an ultra-glossy nude lip. If you look closely, you can even see her pores cutely peeking through her pink blush, which is a welcome reminder that seemingly perfect stars have pores, too.
The star’s fans applauded her for showing off her natural skin for a change. Here’s hoping she’ll ditch the filter more often and in turn encourage her fans to, too.
The new makeup drop comes after Kylie Skin launched in the UK. Following the success of her billion dollar makeup brand Kylie Cosmetics, which is known for its highly pigmented liquid lipsticks and collaborations with members of her famous family, Kylie Skin launched in the USA in 2018 and was positioned as the affordable yet efficacious skincare staples everyone needs in their regimes and now Brits are going wild for it.
