Let’s journey through the evolution of Kendall Jenner’s face, shall we?
Maybe it’s puberty? Yeah, maybe….

There's no question Kendall Jenner is a classic beauty. And it's also not up for debate that we all feel a little protective of her because we saw her grow up before our eyes, transforming from moody preteen on KUWTK to top model.
But for a while now, I've been arguing with friends, family and coworkers about her face. Is Kendall simply a late bloomer, or the careful handiwork of a skilled surgeon? Let's journey through the evolution of her modeling career and you can tell me if this is a natural glow-up or just mad money.
Here's a throwback to her early modeling days to jog your memory of what she used to look like in 2009:
While still a gorgeous, fresh-scrubbed face, it's not the one that walks alongside Gigi and Bella Hadid on the catwalk today. Yes people, I understand that this photo is from 9 years ago, giving her plausible deniability for facial modification. Let's dig deeper into the Kendall Jenner archives:
This photo is straight from Kendall's Instagram, circa 2012. She's ditched the braces and lost a bit of her awkwardness — but more importantly, that mean mug is gone for good. I know she was a child back then, but Kendall and I are the same age and I probably would have been scared of her teenage RBF.
Fast forward to 2013, in which Kenny has thicker brows and a more prominent cleft chin. To me, this is definitely just a jump in aging because her nose is still pretty prominent combined with a jawline sharp enough to cut my leg hair.
Kendall has always been the natural beauty of her family (sorry, but Kim did look like Jafar from Aladdin) but in the past few year, Ken's face is looking simultaneously plumper and more angular.
In 2015, Kendall's lips are fuller and puffier, but her protruding cleft chin is playing peek-a-boo. I wonder how that happened. Could it be aging, weight gain or maybe a doctor consultation? Who can really say? All I know is her face is definitely making changes.
Once 2017 rolled around, the bridge of Kendall's nose was snatched for the gods and she somehow managed to develop an upper lip. How very curious. In addition to the disappearing and reappearing facial features, Kenny's cleft chin is suddenly nowhere to be found.
Now in 2018, the older Jenner sister has shed almost all of her past self, coming into her glow-up with plumper lips (not quite Kylie status) and some super shapely bone structure. She's not not even snatched anymore — she's straight-up yanked.
Kendall hasn't done too much to her face besides maaaaybe a few CCs of lip filler, maybe some Botox and cinching that nose. But all in all, if any of us were drowning in gold like her, I'm pretty sure we'd go under the knife at least once. And maybe even twice if I skipped out on rent for my luxury apartment.
