Kylie Jenner discusses the ‘obsession’ with her lips, developing a thick skin...

Since being thrust into the limelight at the age of ten, she has become a hugely influential style icon, a successful cosmetics entrepreneur and most importantly, a mother to seven-month-old Stormi. And as one of the most famous faces in the entertainment industry, Kylie Jenner, 21, has now touched upon developing a thick skin over the years while also addressing how pregnancy has changed her body 'at a super young age.'

Accompanying a glamorous spread in Glamour's Autumn/Winter issue, the reality star, who is on-track to become the world's youngest billionaire, also opened up about her most famous body part: her lips.

Since appearing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians with her famous family as a youngster, Kylie has gone on to see immeasurable as a solo star.

The star's sensational eye for style has made her an influential force in the style realm, which was never more evident than when she confirmed to getting lip fillers in 2015 after months of speculation.

Speaking to the publication about that time of her life, Kylie noted: 'I was super insecure about my lips. I really wanted to illusion of bigger lips, so I overlined mine like crazy, and then people started getting obsessed.'

The obsession led to the 'Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge' which saw many people plumping up their lips on social media, usually ending in disastrous results.

As a result of the huge public interest surrounding her, Kylie has seen intense public scrutiny over the years: 'So many negative things come at me all the time,' she explained.

However, the mother-of-one has found her own way to get through it all, admitting: 'Of course, it does affect me, but you develop a thick skin.

'Nothing has lasted so long that I haven't gotten through it, so whenever a new bad story or rumour emerges, I know it will pass, too. Everything in life is transient,' she stated.

Kylie's first relationship in the public eye was with rapper Tyga, with the two first being romantically linked in 2014 when she was just 17-years-old.

They parted ways in April 2017 and she swiftly moved onto Travis Scott, with whom she now shares her baby girl Stormi.

After keeping her whole pregnancy a secret by staying out of the public eye, Kylie and Travis welcomed their daughter in February.

Speaking about the journey to motherhood, Kylie admitted: 'Pregnancy completely changed my body at a super young age. But I really don't care.'

After years of being a reality star, Kylie has now made it clear where her priorities lie - motherhood and her Kylie Cosmetics line.

'The business has given me a purpose. I love to work, as Mom has installed such a great work ethic in all of us.

'If I didn't have that, I don't know what I would do. I get to create, it exercises my mind and I am always thinking of how to make the formulas or develop new products,' Kylie admitted.

The Life Of Kylie star went onto admit that everything she does from now on, is for her little girl: 'I work hard for Stormi and being able to pass Kylie Cosmetics onto her if she is interested would be such a cool thing to do.'
