Go Girl! Kylie Jenner Launches Anti-Bullying Campaign

Kylie Jenner, the youngest member of the Kardashian clan at just 18 years old, has had fortune, fame, and an unhealthy amount of attention for most of her young life. She accidentally launched the #KylieJennerChallenge, which inspired young people to suck on shot glasses, bottle caps, and hairspray lids to get those puffed-up KJ lips – which she recently and abashedly revealed are helped along by lip fillers. #awkward

However, Kylie has recently been using the considerable (and quite frankly dangerous) amount of influence she has on young minds to launch an anti-bullying campaign on Instagram. The agenda is labeled #IAmMoreThan, and aims to examine the stories of a number of people who have suffered from bullying.

Kylie posted on Instagram: “I am so excited to launch my new @Instagram campaign #IAmMoreThan. For the next six days, I will be sharing stories of 6 incredible people who have become heroes in their own way by taking #bullying and turning it into something positive. I’ve gotten to talk and bond with all of these people whose stories you will see on my page. I think you will all fall in love with them just like I did. I want to encourage you, my fans, to share something positive about yourselves. I’ll be reading as much as I can so that some of you can be a part of this as well! Let’s do this #IAmMoreThan #StopBullying”

At first glance, you may think this is a bit rich coming from a girl who has seemingly grown up with everything. Looks, money, opportunity; everything that people who are victims of bullying often lack. However, Kylie Jenner has actually been bullied every day of her life, by complete strangers. You only need to glance at the comments left on her social media sites to see that. She revealed through a series of Snapchats that she has been bullied from the age of 9, and feels like that sometimes it’s from “the whole world.” Considering how long the limbs of social media are nowadays, she has a definite point.

True to her word, Kylie has revealed her first victim. 21-year-old Boston college student, Renee DuShane, suffers from Pfeiffer syndrome; a genetic disorder that affects the growth of the bones in her face. She has had a number of surgeries, including one when she was a baby to allow her brain to grow. When Renee was 18, she posted an unedited, makeup free picture and message of positivity, #loveyourself, on Tumblr, which went viral. Three years later, it has inspired Kylie Jenner, and she has reached out to help Renee spread her message.

When her first story went up on Monday, Kylie posted: “Renee is so strong willed and a super intelligent girl who told me that while growing up she never had many issues with bullying. ‘I went to school with all the same kids all the way through high school. Right around senior year, I started getting very anxious about having to explain my condition to all of the new people I would meet in college. I started going on Tumblr and saw lots of profiles of positive, confident people’ that inspired her to start sharing her photos even with her insecurities.” The response to it has been extremely positive.

I think we need to give Kylie Jenner her due on this one. Although the Kardashians tend to be constant sources of casual ridicule, this is an initiative that could genuinely do some good. Kylie is right in the thick of the social media generation, and is of an age that is relatable to young people who are victims of bullying. Of course, haters gonna hate, but let’s put aside the Kardashian stigma for a week and allow this good-hearted campaign to do its thing.

TV Host Refuses To Report On Kardashians, Storms Off Set

While Kim K’s side boob selfie or Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday party might be of interest to some, the majority of the world probably don’t care that much – if at all. So why has the media gone bat-shit, Kardashian crazy?

RELATED: Hollywood’s Most Epic Wardrobe Malfunctions

Well, one news anchor has had enough. John Brown, the co-host of America’s Good Morning Orlando stormed off set on Friday after refusing to talk about the Kardashians because he was having a “good” day.

“I’m having a good Friday, so I refuse to talk about the Kardashians today. You are on your own, Amy!” he said to his co-host as he walked off while live on air.

Provoked by a story about Kylie Jenner naming her new pet bunny Bruce, after her Dad, Brown didn’t hold back in expressing his distaste in all things Kardashian coverage by continuing his rant off-screen, even after another employee stepped in for him.

“I’ve had enough Kardashian, I can’t take anymore Kardashians… I don’t care about this family, I’m sick of this family!” he yelled.

While his co-hosts tried to make the best of an awkward situation by laughing it off, the enraged news reader wouldn’t have a bar of it. “It’s a nonstory, we’re talking about this family every freaking day on this show. Nobody cares about this family anymore!”

“Don’t you listen to the research? Nobody cares about the Kardashians anymore!” he continued.

Not impressed, his co-host Amy stepped in and replied: “That’s not true, they get good ratings. People watch that show.”

Brown has since taken to Facebook to semi-apologise for his antics and share the video, writing: “Here is the Kardashian rant. Sorry, I lost my mind a bit, although it was partially in jest! I did feel better though after I was done.”

Not so surprisingly his Kardashian rant has been met with a tonne of support via social media, with a lot of people congratulating the reporter for taking a public stand against the reality TV family.

Do you agree?

5 Makeup Trends That Need To Stop ASAP

Have you ever seen a makeup trend that you think needs to end? We’re counting down five of the most over-used trends which celebrities have tried, YouTube guru’s are overdoing, and those that should just never see the light of day.

RELATED: How New Beauty Trend Alert – Ombré Brows

Contouring

While contouring is wildly popular, it’s often quite difficult to get it right. We say you should leave that technique to the professional makeup artists who blend the colours seamlessly without resulting in a shade which is too dark (or too light for your natural skin tone).

5 Makeup Trends That Need To Stop ASAP

Kylie Jenner lips

The ‘big lip’ look had it’s moment, now lets never mention it again. Even Kylie Jenner herself admitted to injecting her lips, so isn’t it finally time to stop over-drawing our lips? Anyway, taking more than 1 hour to get ready is completely overrated.

5 Makeup Trends That Need To Stop ASAP

Bronzing

While we’re all guilty of this one, matching your foundation to your fake tan is never really a good option. Why? Most women actually forget to blend it into their neck, decolletage and even behind their ears!

This means that your makeup actually looks quite patch, and doesn’t look natural at all. Always get matched by a professional who can identify if your skin is warm or cool toned.

5 Makeup Trends That Need To Stop ASAP

False lashes

Now, we’re not talking about individual lashes or the natural kind which actually look quite nice! It’s time to retire those false lashes with diamonds, thick bands and colours which are too heavy for most of our eyelids. If you want the illusion of bigger lashes, use a few corner strips on the side of your eyes.

5 Makeup Trends That Need To Stop ASAP

Statement brows

Put down that pomade and embrace the natural look! While filling in our eyebrows has become second nature, this trend has clearly gone OTT over the last year. Some clear gel, an eyebrow pencil, and a brow brush is really the only thing you need to tame those brows on a daily basis.

Get The Look: Kylie Jenner’s Voluminous Black Bob

While Kylie Jenner is mostly known for her luscious big lips, she’s also been rocking a seriously stylish short bob.

Even if your hair feels thin and lifeless, use our tips below to create a shiny, voluminous hairstyle which is suitable for all occasions.

RELATED: Kylie Jenner’s Lips 

Instructions

1. If your hair is coloured like Kylie’s make sure that you’re using a sulphate-free shampoo. This will help to lock-in your colour for longer, and won’t dry out your ends after each wash.

2. Apply a conditioner to strictly the ends of your hair, and leave-in for 3-5 minutes. Applying it all over the hair (and the root) can actually decrease your volume later on!

3. Spray a colour shine serum lightly through damp hair, concentrating it on your ends.

4. Just before blow-drying the hair, use a lifting mousse and scrunch this from root to tip. Make sure your hair is still damp, otherwise it can get quite sticky.

5. As you’re blow-drying your hair, use a few different techniques which will help to create instant volume. Scrunch your hair between your fingers, dip your head upside down and dry it at the roots, and even apply some sea salt spray to awaken the root.

6. Once your hair is dry, use a finishing spray to lock-in the texture, and make it last for hours. To create some extra volume, part your hair on the side instead of the middle. You will find that it creates more texture at the roots without even trying!

How To Wear The Coloured Hair Trend

Celebrities such as Nicole Richie and Kelly Osbourne have truly brought back the coloured hair trend, but how can the rest of us incorporate this not-so-subtle style into our daily lives?

Rather than colouring your entire head one colour, why not try some subtle highlights or balayage? This way, you can disguise the colour while you’re at work, and style your hair in a sophisticated bun.

Short and curly

An angled hair cut really makes colours like purple, pink and blue pop, especially on hair that is naturally quite thin. It creates the illusion of thicker hair, and is really easy to style with a pair of curlers.

How To Wear The Coloured Hair Trend

Faux mohawk

Who doesn’t love to experiment with their look every once in a while? Pink shows us just one of the best ways to rock the faux-mohawk – with an entire can of hairspray! Her light pink locks are perfect for girls who have naturally blonde hair, since the look isn’t too harsh for their overall appearance.

How To Wear The Coloured Hair Trend

Side ponytail

An elegant side ponytail is the best way to rock this style, since it shows off every angle of your colour! Create a side parting, and carefully back-comb the hair to make a voluminous quiff. Then simply fasten the rest of your hair into a side ponytail. Ideal for girls with thick hair, since it stays in place for hours!

How To Wear The Coloured Hair Trend

Ombre

We can’t mention ombre coloured hair without Kylie Jenner. The young reality television star certainly nailed this look, which shows that dark-haired girls can also pull off blue! The look requires a little more maintenance since your ends must first be bleached blonde.

How To Wear The Coloured Hair Trend

Tips

  • Chalk and cream colours are the easiest ways to bring this trend to life. If you’re looking for a temporary colour, then chalk is the best way to make this happen. Simply rub the colour back and forth on damp hair, then allow it to air-dry naturally. Chalk typically lasts for a few days, or until you wash your hair out.
  • Cream dyes last for 4-6 weeks since they are more concentrated. Apply onto freshly washed hair, and leave on for 30 minutes. To enhance the colour of your hair, wrap small pieces in aluminium paper.

How To Style A Duster Coat

Duster coats are an all-year-round wardrobe essential because they can be layered according to the weather. Choose a base shade such as black, white, khaki, or grey since they are the easiest colours to wear with the majority of your outfits.

Inspire your creativity with the following ways to wear your duster coat, regardless of the weather.

RELATED: 8 Street Style Stars To Follow

Jeans

Basic black jeans and a light duster coat is the best outfit when you’re running on zero inspiration. Not only is this ensemble super-comfy, but it looks put together when paired with a pretty black clutch. If you’re taking this outfit from day to night, trade the sneakers for a pair of heeled ankle boots instead.

1

Skirt

If the weather is acting up but you still want to show off your legs, choose a leather or denim skirt to pair with your duster coat. Shades of black, grey, and white work beautifully together, especially if you need to feel comfy for the day.

2

Playsuit

Style a monochrome playsuit with a pastel blue duster coat just like Kylie Jenner. This outfit is easy on the eyes, and is complimented with a beautiful brown fedora hat. Heels, or course are optional! You could always trade them for some beautiful flat sandals.

3

Midi dress

Go for a classy look and wear your favourite midi dress with a longline duster coat. This is a sophisticated look which is perfect for an evening out, or even the office. A soft beige coloured trench is perfect since it never goes out of style.

4

White shirt

Bring some life to a casual white t-shirt and wear it with a crisp duster coat. If you want to make this look a little smart-casual, wear some killer stiletto heels and leather bag to complete the look.

5

Mini dress

Go for the classic sports-luxe look by adapting a casual mini dress into this trend. A collared duster coat brings a level of sophistication to any outfit, but you can always make this look feel dressier by wearing some summer sandals instead.

Get The Look: Kylie Jenner’s Lips

The world hasn’t stopped talking about Kylie Jenner’s new lips, and almost every beauty guru is trying to recreate this elusive look by the young star. If you want to create the illusion of bigger lips (sans) surgery, follow our how-to on how to get Kylie Jenner’s pouty look.

RELATED: 10 Reasons To Love Lulu and Lipstick

Instructions

1. This look is perfect if you want to accentuate your upper lip which (like Kylie’s) is thin and undefined. Exaggerate the angle of the upper lip by extending the outer sides of the cupid’s bow.

Get The Look: Kylie Jenner's Lips

2. Line the natural curve of your cupid’s bow, then slowly drag the lip liner outwards until you reach your bottom lip. This may take a while to master, so you want the look to feel nature. Use a lip liner which is the colour of your natural lips, and fill in any gaps.

3. To make this step a little bit easier, smile and drag the lip liner down the sides of your lips. Use your finger to blend in the colour with your natural lips.

4. Take a white eyeliner pencil then carefully concentrate the product in the middle of your lips (below the cupid’s bow). Blend well with your finger, then apply a flesh-toned lipstick over the top.

5. Lightly gloss your lips, and dab dry with a tissue for a more natural look. Use a plumping lip gloss to accentuate your lips and bring them extra body and fullness.
