Nobody transforms their look as often as Kylie Jenner.

It’s safe to say Kylie’s looks have changed drastically over the years.

We’ve seen the youngest Jenner go from adorable teen to full-on glamour girl within the space of a few years, leading her to become a social media sensation and beauty mogul.

Throughout her teenage years and now as a young adult, Kylie has faced rumors of cosmetic surgery after taking on a whole new appearance including an hourglass figure, polished face, and a plumped up pout.

Her dramatic beauty transformation seen in these before and after photos is mind-blowing to say the least…

But despite receiving heavy criticism about getting a cosmetic procedure at only 17 years-old, Kylie built an empire out of her most famous asset – her ever-changing lips. Kylie Cosmetics is now worth a whopping $900 million!

Turns out, Kylie Jenner’s transformation was worth it after all – it’s helped her become one of the wealthiest women in the world.

A Timeline of Kylie Jenner’s Transformation

Late 90s
Baby Kylie

We’ll start by presenting to you a very young Kylie Jenner. A far cry from her glam face and famous pout, once upon a time, she was fresh-faced, innocent, and certainly adorable. In fact, the influencer looks a lot like her daughter, Stormi, here.

10 Year-Old Kylie

Fast-forward a decade later, and here’s Kylie during the early seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Compare this look with her current one, and you’ll be surprised at how different the reality star actually looks.

Where have those cute freckles gone, Kyles?

14 Year-Old Kylie

We’re going to jump ahead to Kylie’s early teenage days, as this is when her drastic transformation started to unfold.

Long before her super hot photoshoots, this was Kylie’s idea of posing for a shot. We can’t see her donning this look again anytime soon. Jaw-dropping, we know.

But that’s what being a teenager is all about, right? Cringe poses, embarrassing hairstyles, and awful makeup. We all thought we were drop-dead gorgeous growing up.

At this point, 14 year-old Kylie didn’t worry about having full lips or a voluptuous figure, she embraced her natural, sweet beauty.

The photo below accentuates how different Kylie’s chin and jaw used to be…

15 Year-Old Kylie

15-year old Kylie will have you doing a double take!

Just like your regular girl next door, the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan would pull a duckface and apply a bold lip color to make her pout look bigger.

We can’t imagine what Kylie would have looked like today had she not touched-up her face. There’s no surprise why some say she’s had her chin reshaped and her jaw shaved.

What Kylie Jenner Looks Like Without Makeup

The body Kylie has today was basically non-existent during her teenage years. This photo was taken long before her makeover and days of rumored hip and butt implants.

She clearly had a long, lean figure, similar to that of her sister’s, Kendall.

Kylie’s booty was average-sized with no implantations in sight. She was once proud to show off what her momma really gave her!

16 Year-Old Kylie

Throwback to 2013! Is this really the Kylie Jenner we all know today?

In case you forgot, young Kylie’s lips were thinner than a lasagna sheet. Before the age of 17, Kylizzle actually looked her age. She wore less makeup and wasn’t afraid to show-off her natural look.

Once again, Kylie showed off her slender body, with natural curves and a thinner frame. I mean, not even 1000 squats a day could lead to Kylie’s new body and booty she has now!

17 Year-Old Kylie

And so it began. Kylie Jenner’s transformation was officially in motion and the celebrity‘s pout went from zero to hero in matter of months.

Kylie and the lip-gate kicked off in mid-2014 when she began sharing selfies like this one. Her plumped up pout appeared out of nowhere and everyone knew there was more to Kylie Jenner’s lips than just makeup.

But that was just the beginning…

Long gone were her freckles, her “old” chin and her thin lips. In came her plumped lips, false lashes and expert contouring!

A whole new Kylie Jenner was born in 2014 and the world hasn’t stopped talking about it since. What a face evolution!

While everyone was convinced the beauty mogul had lip fillers, Kylie lied to numerous sources telling them her lip tricks were simply due to “lip liner and a little lip balm”. 

“You guys have watched me grow up since I was nine. My face is going to get different. Now, I know how to do my makeup, contour and everything,” she told Cosmopolitan.

Urm, if only “puberty” was that kind to us, right?

Kylie Jenner’s Dating History

Despite having a brand new face, Kylie Jenner’s body still pretty much looked the same in 2014. I mean, what more would you expect from a 17 year-old?

Even her booty looked pretty normal. There were no Kardashian-kurves in sight just yet. But perhaps this was the moment when Kylie decided to get rid of her tiny waist? Maybe this was the picture that inspired her to make more changes to her body?

18 Year-Old Kylie

Kylie’s lips were growing bigger by the selfie, making many wonder if she’d augmented them. Puberty nor makeup can increase your lip size by that much.

Her brows looked higher, her chin and jaw had shrunk, and her lips were suddenly larger than life. Everyone was desperate to know the secret to that luscious pout.

After denying it several times, Kylie finally came clean and admitted to having lip fillers in 2015. In a clip from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kylie announced that she “had temporary lip fillers”. “It’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do,” she said.

Here she is just a few months later.

In 2015, Kylie was also rumored to have gotten secret breast implants. This revealing photo shoot pretty much confirmed that she’d undergone a body transformation. Girl, that cleavage appeared out of nowhere!

Kylie denounced any rumors about surgery, asserting that a wonder-type-bra does the job:

“Everyone thinks I’ve gotten a breast augmentation recently and I haven’t. I just use the ‘Bombshell’ by Victoria’s Secret – it’s life-changing. I’ve gotten all my sisters on it, all my friends and if you ever want the look of bigger breasts, that’s what I do.”

She also blamed her curvy chest and hips on a “fat-enhancing cream”.

GURL – we weren’t born yesterday! Look at how cartoonishly-curvaceous Kylie’s booty became just ONE YEAR later!

20+ Cool Facts About Kylie Jenner

Kylie, is that you? The fashionista switches up her look so regularly that it’s hard to recognize her!

Come winter 2015 and it looked like Kylie aged by a decade. The lighter hair and eyebrows made SUCH a change!

19 Year-Old Kylie

Everyday brings something new from Kylie Jenner. Year-by-year, the Lip Kit queen’s pout grows a few inches plumper, making her physically unrecognizable to those who watched her grow up.

Kylie revealed that she got the Juvéderm lip fillers by Dr. Ourian in Beverly Hills. This formula reportedly lasts 4-6 months, depending on where it’s injected. They’re reversible and “if you do not like the results the doctor can inject the enzyme, hyaluronidase, to dissolve it,” Dr. Swift told Hollywood Life.

Whether it’s her hair or a new makeup technique, Kylie isn’t going to stop until she changes every aspect of her appearance.

On her reality-TV show, Life of Kylie, she revealed her true motivation to get lip fillers – and it involves a boy.

After her first kiss, “the guy was like, “I didn’t think you were gonna be a good kisser, ’cause you have such small lips.” I took that really hard. When a guy says that…I don’t know, it just really affected me. I didn’t feel desirable or pretty. It really sticks with you”, she told her therapist on the show.

Who is this stranger? We’re sure we’re not the only ones who had to do a double take looking at this photo. Kylie changed her face once again, making us certain she revamps her look every 5 minutes…

With rumors of even a nose job and brow lift, everyone started accusing Jenner of “buying” her new face, but she was quick to shut down the rumors: “People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false,” Jenner told Paper Magazine. “I’m terrified! I would never. They don’t understand what good hair and makeup and, like, fillers, can really do.”

Wearing less makeup and donning a plain-but-pretty hairstyle, the reality TV star toned down her look in mid-2016. But it was only a matter of time before she transformed drastically again!

Like we said, it wouldn’t be long before Kylie made a drastic change to her appearance again. In 2016, we saw Kylie’s derrière more than we saw our own!

Let’s just say that “cream” is pure magic, because her hips and backside certainly grew a lot!

20 Year-Old Kylie

In 2017, Kylie was rumored to be pregnant, and so she kept a low profile in public and on social media.

She was spotted with a newfound face in September, leading many to assume she’d done more work to her cheeks and lips.

It was later confirmed that the 20 year-old was indeed pregnant. Is this what her pregnancy glow looked like? If only we all looked this good carrying a baby!

21 Year-Old Kylie

Kylie expanded the Jenner family tree after giving birth to her baby girl on February 1st 2018. This news not only transformed Kylie’s appearance, but her entire life, too.

Life as a mom meant less makeup and owning a more mature, natural look. Here she is in early 2018 looking like the gorgeous young mother she is…

Best Kylie Jenner Merchandise to Buy

From blushes to Kyshadows and Kylighters, she’s played with every makeup look in the book, but her best is when she’s most natural. Kylizzle looked absolutely breathtaking in this photo with her baby girl!

When fans started noticing that she “looked like the old Kylie”, the entrepreneur admitted that she had removed her lip fillers after having Stormi, and this photo proves it! “I got rid of all my filler,” she told fans.

Her pout certainly looked smaller than usual, although we can still see some plumpness there, so we weren’t convinced it was completely dissolved.

22 Year-Old Kylie

The launch of Kylie’s skincare line, Kylie Skin saw the celeb donning a more makeup-free look. Instead of being caked in cosmetics, Kylie wanted to promote a fresh face.

We could even see those freckles reappearing!

Despite dropping pounds of makeup that year, she refused to let go of plastic surgery.

Kylie Jenner’s transformation wowed everyone once again as it seemed her booty grew double the size in 2019. She certainly wasn’t afraid to prove it!

23 Year-Old Kylie

2020 arrived and while everyone stripped back their looks during lockdown at home, Kylie decided to amp hers up and adopt a totally new glamorized look.

Kylie dyed her hair brown, possibly enhanced her breasts some more, and put on additional makeup, giving herself a totally different face!

24 Year-Old Kylie

As 2021 rolled in, Kylie continued experimenting with different hairstyles (or shall we say, faces) and even brought back the bigger pout!

Does anyone else also think Kylie is about to transform into Kim Kardashian? We totally see the inspiration here.

25 Year-Old Kylie

Most of 2022 was spent being pregnant – and having baby number two. And as expected, Kylie showed-off her baby bump and gorgeous glowing face.

You’d think post-pregnancy came with a lot of fluctuating body changes and face transformations, but not for this gal! In fact, Kylie’s appearance stayed the same. Look at the confidence on her!

25 Year-Old Kylie

In 2023, it appeared as though Kylie Jenner was once again trying to tone down her look. Although she’s still a fan of makeup and shapely looks, the beauty mogul has been trying to advocate a cleaner, stripped-back look.

Perhaps this is thanks to promoting her Kylie Skin care brand – and being a mom of two.

26 Year-Old Kylie

2024 saw the return of “King Kylie” as the reality TV star brought back her iconic pink hair from 2016. The candy-colored tone officially replaced Kylie’s usual dark hair color, reminding everyone of her mid-2010s aesthetic.

When Kylie attended the Jean Paul Gaultier during Paris Fashion Week, fans couldn’t help but notice how different she looked. Back to brunette, the mother-of-two went for a natural look, but jokes went viral about how Kylie looked much older than her 26 years.  

Money really does work wonders! From your typical girl-next-door cutie to a pouty, sexy selfie-queen, Kylie has changed so much in such a short time.

These gorgeous photos make us want to blow $500k on a Kylie Jenner transformation!

Gross, I think all fake women are pretty grotesque. How do you explain to your kids that you look nothing alike and you don’t like how they look so you spent a half mil to literally rearrange your face.

At the end, she transformed herself into into a 40 years old Latina. Even, she invented a new skin color for white people.

The only thing that makes me “cringe” is the fact you think she’s like this now because “puberty was kind to her.” LOOOL.
