How Kylie Jenner has morphed into big sister Kim Kardashian

The ultimate Kardashian klone? How Kylie Jenner, 25, has slowly morphed into her ‘favorite’ sister Kim, 42 – physically AND professionally – from copying the bombshell’s glam makeup looks and trademark curves to launching billion-dollar beauty business

  • Thanks to sculpted features, plump pouts and jaw-dropping curves, the pair could pass as twins 
  • Kylie has also followed in her sister’s footsteps when it comes to her romantic interests and business pursuits 
  • The beauty mogul previously admitted to fans in a 2016 video, ‘I do want to be Kim’

When their family found fame through Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kylie Jenner was simply a young girl who looked up to her glamorous older sisters.

However, ever since undergoing a much-discussed physical transformation as she went from her teens into adulthood, Kylie has often given the likes of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney a run for their money.

Indeed, the 25-year-old appears to have taken a lot of inspiration from her half-sister Kim, 42, as she slowly morphed into an equally striking bombshell that is the absolute double of her older sibling.

From their sculpted features, plump pouts and jaw-dropping curves, the resemblance between the pair has been so uncanny that fans are often left doing a double take.

However, it’s not just Kim’s looks that appear to have been a inspiration for Kylie as the reality star also followed in her sister’s footsteps when it comes to her romantic interests and her business pursuits.

Some would argue Kylie has successfully managed to overtake her sibling in terms of cultural relevance.

In the space of a decade, the Kylie Jenner Cosmetics founder has cultivated a higher following on social media, became the first to be named a ‘billionaire’ through her beauty empire – and even knocked Kim aside to become their mother Kris Jenner’s favorite child! 

Though this could cause tension for most siblings, Kylie revealed that Kim is her favorite sister in a recent interview.  

She explained to Vanity Fair Italy that the duo have had lots of ‘similar experiences lately’ after both suffered public splits.

The make-up mogul broke up with her long-term partner and father of her two children, Travis Scott last month.

Meanwhile, Kim split from her last boyfriend Pete Davidson in August last year, before finally settling her divorce from ex-husband Kanye West in November.

Speaking about her favorite sibling, Kylie stated: ‘It changes over time. Right now it’s Kim.’

Referencing their mutual breakups, she added: ‘Kim has changed so much recently. We are very connected, she is always the first sister I call when I need something. We have been going through a lot of similar experiences lately.’

Here, reveals the many similarities between the pair that highlights just how much Kylie has transformed into her sister Kim’s mini-me.

However, the world has watched on as the star embraced a much more glamorous look that is usually associated with her elder sister (pictured left in 2010 and right recently)

However, Kylie soon abandon her rock-chic look for perfectly contoured makeup, while she ditched her dyed-blue locks and began to sport long, stick-straight black extensions.

During her teenage years, Kylie showcased a much more grungy, goth style compared to her sister’s love for Hollywood glam makeup and figure-hugging bandage dress.

However, Kylie soon abandoned her rock-chic look for perfectly contoured makeup, while she ditched her dyed-blue locks and began to sport long, stick-straight black extensions.

Kylie started showing off noticeably plumper lips in 2014 when she was just 16, sparkling speculation she had them cosmetically enhanced.

Then on a 2015 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians – when she was just 17 – Kylie finally admitted getting temporary lip fillers to help create a pout that rivalled that of her older sister. 

Much like Kim, Kylie has been inundated by never-ending speculation that she went under the knife in order to create the face she has become famous for.

Despite admitting to lip filler in the past, she has categorically denied she has had plastic surgery.

The reality star previously wrote on Twitter: ‘These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting.’

Despite her claims, a plastic surgeon previously told MailOnline that he believed Kylie’s face was the work of plastic surgery, in particular her ‘thin nose’ which he believed has been altered.

From 2016 onwards, Kylie (pictured right in 2019) became known for perfectly contoured makeup and long, stick-straight black extensions as loved by Kim (pictured in 2009)

Even when Kylie (pictured left in 2016) switches up her hair style or color, she has often been seen sporting similar looks favored by Kim (pictured right in 2022)

Alex Karidis, from the Karidis Clinic, claimed her changed nose could be down to rhinoplasty, and said: ‘Her nose appears thinner, particularly at the tip.’

Kylie has continued to deny undergoing any other surgery on her face despite constant rumors surrounding the changing shape of her eyes, cheekbones and chin.

Top plastic surgeon Mark Ho-Asjoe also previously told Closer magazine that he believed the beauty mogul has had more work done than she claimed and this was ‘aging her.’

He wrote: ‘Kylie has made herself look way beyond her years. All the surgery I suspect she’s had – fillers to her lips and cheeks, a nose job and possibly some bone shaving around her jaw – is aging her. Her eyes look wider, which implies she may have had eye surgery.

‘If she continues with all these treatments, in 10 years’ time the skin around her lips will have stretched like a balloon and if she doesn’t keep plumping them up the skin will be wrinkled.’

Back in February 2019, Kylie once again denied having plastic surgery but was happy to admit that her look was not completely natural.

She told Paper: ‘People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false. I’m terrified! I would never. They don’t understand what good hair and makeup and, like, fillers, can really do.’

When asked if she meant she had been relying on makeup tricks to get her look, Kylie replied: ”I mean, no. it’s fillers. I’m not denying that.’

Over the years, fans have watched Kylie transform from a slim teen into a voluptuous Instagram vixen. 

In 2015, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star chose to address the ongoing speculation on her website as she wrote: ‘No, people – I haven’t gotten breast implants. 

‘Everyone is obsessed with that. Truth is, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gained 15 pounds and my body has changed; I’ve definitely filled out.’

She added: ‘I just use the Bombshell (bra) by Victoria’s Secret. It’s life-changing. I’ve gotten all my sisters on it and all my friends…Clearly, it’s like 10 times bigger – no contouring, no nothing.

‘This is all padding. I think it makes your breast look great and girlie. This is it. No breast implants. No surgery. Nothing. It’s amazing. So if you guys want this look, here’s my secret.’

She added: ‘Working with some of the best makeup artists has taught me a lot of amazing tricks to making me feel more confident and I can’t wait to share them with you guys.

‘I swear there are things you can do to work on problem areas without having to think about plastic surgery. (Contouring has changed my life!)’.

Meanwhile, Kylie has made it clear over the years that she has never been trying to take her sister’s place, despite the public narrative.

Sharing a candid video on her app in 2016, she explained: ‘People always put me and Kim in a competition, Or [say] I’m trying to be Kim or I’m trying to steal Kim’s throne. I think people forget that me and Kim are sisters.’

She continued: ‘We’re not in a competition. We’re completely different people. She’s one of my biggest inspirations. That’s not a secret. I look up to my sister. I don’t think that’s a weird thing. We have a lot of love for each other.’

When her former best friend Jordyn Woods responded, ‘Little sisters just look up to their older sisters. It’s just human nature’, Kylie responded: ‘I do want to be Kim.’

Kim asked: ‘Who do you think mom likes better? I think she likes you better.’

‘I think you’re her OG, you know,,’ Kylie replied. ‘She definitely likes us the same, but if we’re being funny… She’s like me, and I treat her like the queen of the world.’

To which Kim claimed: ‘It like truly is just that you treat her the most amazing.’

With the help of mother Kris, Kylie Cosmetics was launched in 2014 in partnership with Seed Beauty.

The then 17-year-old invested $250,000 from her own income into the company and she has since been reaping the rewards in the years that have followed.

By February 2016, the company had to ramp up its manufacturing capacity and within its first 18 months of operation, it had generated more than $420 million in revenues.

Kylie’s venture ultimately expanded from just Lip Kits to a whole range of cosmetics including eyeshadows, blush, and foundation.

In July 2018 and at the age of 20, she became the youngest person to be listed in the Forbes list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women with an estimated net worth of nearly $900 million.

In November 2018, Kylie Cosmetics further ramped up its retail and digital expansions by partnering up with Ulta Beauty and launching a mobile app in the same month.

By September 2019, Kylie had successfully expanded her brand into skincare and personal fragrances.

In November of that same year, Coty bought out a 51 per cent majority stake in the company in a deal worth about $600 million. This deal put the company at a $1.2 billion valuation and pushed Kylie’s net worth over the billion-dollar mark.

However, in 2020, Forbes reported that the Coty deal also highlighted that Kylie’s business had actually been much less profitable than what she had publicly stated. The company revised her net worth to $900 million, thus stripping her of the billionaire’s title.
