  Bad idea alert!!!

    In case you haven’t noticed Kylie Jenner has some severely plump and seriously fake lips, and apparently teens are left believing this is the ideal look.

So how do average American girls who can’t afford plastic surgery emulate their teenage idol?

Take a bottle or jar, push their lips in in, suck the air out, and wait for their lips to plump up.
