Why Kylie Jenner Fans Think Her Massive Makeup Routine Is a ‘Waste of Time’
Kylie Jenner is a makeup mogul who has made headlines many times over the years. After rising to fame at a very young age, thanks to her featured role on the TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Jenner launched her own line of cosmetics in 2015. She has found remarkable success with the makeup line, going on to launch skincare and accessories as well as lip products and eyeshadow, and these days, she’s one of the most popular and influential social media influencers.
Still, Jenner has come under fire many times over the years for her social media presence. Recently, following the release of a startling new interview, fans are taking to Reddit to slam the star for vanity, reinforcing why so many pop culture fans have a problem with the Kardashians.
Kylie Jenner recently revealed that it takes over three hours to do her makeup
In a recent video uploaded to her YouTube channel, Jenner sat down with her makeup artist, Ariel Tejada, revealing that she spends hours every day in her glam chair. Joking that she needs to stay on her phone while in Tejada’s chair, Jenner stated that “I work on my phone all day. The only way I’m gonna get through three and a half hours of makeup with you is if I entertain myself a little.”
Although Jenner followed up that statement with the acknowledgment that she’s happy with Tejada’s work, fans online were astonished at Jenner’s revelation that she spends so long in glam.
What do fans have to say about Kylie Jenner’s extravagant makeup routine?
In a recent Reddit thread, fans slammed Jenner for spending so long in the makeup chair. “For as busy as they’re all supposed to be I can’t imagine anything being a bigger waste of time,” one critic wrote. Another remarked on Jenner’s alleged surgical procedures, writing that the young star “still uses a filter at the end.”
Many fans wondered exactly what Jenner was having done in that amount of time, since she seems to primarily step out in neutral makeup looks, with minimal color and a focus on contouring and bronzing — makeup techniques that typically take no longer than an hour at maximum. Ultimately, Jenner’s dedication to maintaining a perfect image speaks to the issue that many critics have with the Kardashian family and the fact that the reality stars have been slammed many times over the years for using too many misleading filters on social media.
The Kardashians have often been criticized for the use of filters on social media
While Jenner has often been accused of filtering her social media photos to excess, her entire family has also been caught up in that same argument. Khloé Kardashian, Jenner’s older sister, has been the subject of numerous Photoshop controversies, with critics claiming that the reality star has altered herself to an unrecognizable extent — only to continue to deceive fans by filtering and editing her photos.
The Kardashian-Jenner family rarely speaks out regarding their social media controversies and prefers to remain mum on the topic of their alleged surgical procedures. In a recent interview with Andy Cohen, however, Kim Kardashian addressed the issue of whether they promote unrealistic body standards, claiming that the family “enjoys being healthy” and that they “do the work,” rather than admitting to any sort of plastic surgery or body alteration. For now, critics still take issue with the way that the family presents themselves on social media. Stay tuned to Showbiz Cheat Sheet for all the latest entertainment news!
