Alright, everybody! You can stop bruising your lips now.

Many swollen mugs later, Kylie Jenner is responding to people trying to emulate her famous full-lip look.

The 17-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star tweeted: “I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look. I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look.”

See everybody? All you have to do is be yourself! Sorry if it’s too late…

We guess the takeaway is that growth can be hard.
