I Gave My Co-Workers A Kylie Jenner Makeover

And proved Instagram should never be trusted.

Posted on

Kylie Jenner is queen of the Instagram selfie. It's literally undeniable.

In her Instagram bio she refers to herself as Kylizzle.


As a forever fan of Instagram, I find it important that I remind myself - and others - that photos posted on social media CANNOT BE TRUSTED.

As in, highlight the fact that a whole lot of shit goes on behind the scenes of every single photo celebrities upload.

To prove my point, I assigned myself the task of turning our BuzzFeed Australia team into an army of Kylizzles.

I transformed the faces of our office using Facetune, Perfect365 and Afterlight.

This is how it went down.


Jemima into Jemizzle

Her thoughts: I actually love this. I look very much like an anime character but if my nose and lips weren't so ridonk in this photo I would be using it everywhere. Also plz teach me to contour/bronzer/makeup like that. Thanks.

My thoughts: Jemizzle rocks a red lip like nobody's business. Filter or no filter. Also, Jemizzle is an excellent, excellent name.

Alex into Alizzle

Her thoughts: This is everything I've ever wanted. Is there somewhere near work where I can get my eyeballs whitened?

My thoughts: Lips in photo one and two would make Kylizzle (and her hair) green with envy.

Stephanie into Stephizzle

Her thoughts: This is like, a LOT, but it's also #goals. I love it and I'm going to take down all my Instagram photos and re-upload them after I filter them to fuck and back. Probably not really, but whatever.

My thoughts: What have I created?


Tahlia into Tahlizzle

Her thoughts: I've always wondered what I'd look like with botox and now I have my answer. Thank you technology. Can get on board with that whole skin tone though.

My thoughts: Like, I feel a little frightened of Tahlizzle but I'm sure she's just as lovely as Tahlia.

If you want to Kylizzle yourself, try an app (or three) and please, share it below.
