Celebrities sometimes have a lot to answer for. Many of them are role models to our young and impressionable who want to ‘fit in.’ They think that by emulating some of their idols behaviour they too will be popular and successful, even if it makes them look ridiculous!
The latest craze, apparently attributed to Kylie Jenner, is to make your lips look like you have been punched in the mouth! Now why anyone would find this attractive is beyond me, but what do I know? I am old and past it!
To achieve said look, also described as bee-stung lips (if you ask me it is more like anaphylaxis after being stung), you are supposed to put a glass (preferably a shot glass) over the lips, suck all the air out, prise it off, and admire your massive mouth!
This is just wrong on so many levels! Not only is it dangerous, (the glass could break cutting into the mouth), but for some, the ‘trout pout’ look takes a few days to go back down again. A few youngsters have suffered bruising as well as split lips, and even for those where it has supposedly ‘worked,’ they resemble a duck with an abscess!
Unfortunately, Miss Hap has had a go at this without saying anything beforehand. I am annoyed as I had vaguely heard about it before but didn’t think she would want to try it! I am hoping that it will go down quickly as it looks painful apart from anything else.
Next time she wants a drink she can have a plastic beaker and not a glass!
