Kylie Jenner’s look alike has surfaced, and she’s taking the Internet by storm.
Admittedly, there are plenty of teens around the world who would love to look like Kylie Jenner — the Kylie Jenner lip challenge from earlier this summer is evidence enough of that. But, how many teens can actually say they are Kylie Jenner’s look alike?
The number of people who look like Jenner is likely limited, but one 19-year-old from Hartland, Michigan, can say that she is, in fact, Kylie Jenner’s doppelganger. Gabrielle Waters says she’s a huge Keeping Up With the Kardashians fan — she watches every week — and Kylie is her favorite reality star.
Waters began dressing and doing her makeup like Kylie after a few friends told her she resembled the 18-year-old KUWTK star. She wasn’t trying to look like Kylie at first, Waters told The Mirror, but now that she’s been trying to do so, people stop her on the street to tell her she resembles the reality TV starlet, Waters said.
“When I started dressing like her, people started stopping me in the streets and even when I went shopping in the mall. At first I didn’t actually try to look like Kylie but when people started telling me I looked like her I thought it would be fun to start dressing and doing my makeup just like she does.”
Waters is at a disadvantage when it comes to looking like Kylie Jenner, and that disadvantage extends beyond the obvious fact that Waters isn’t actually Jenner. Waters is additionally disadvantaged by the fact that she isn’t able to make use of the make up artists, nutritionists, and personal trainers that Jenner has admitted to using.
Instead, in order to get the Kylie Jenner look, Waters told The Mirror that she uses normal, every day makeup that can be found at local stores.
“I use bare minerals foundation, eye shadow, fake eyelashes, some blush and whirl and one of Kylie’s signature Mac lip liners to get my lips a little bigger. I’ve not bought specialist make-up and obviously I don’t have a makeup artist coming to my house every day but I do my best.”
Waters shares her Kylie Jenner look alike photos on her Instagram page, where she’s gone so far as to mimic some of Kylie’s photos. The 19-year-old Michigan native does so by wearing similar clothing, posing in similar ways, and perfecting her facial expressions.
Waters goes on to explain that she likes Kylie the most out of all the Kardashians because Jenner is so independent, and she’s able to do her own thing in life. Waters told The Mirror that Jenner’s ability to accomplish so much at such a young age is “inspirational.”
“I like how she’s independent, how she’s bought her own home and has a whole bunch of clothing lines she’s attached to. Kylie’s worked hard for the money and achieved so much at a young age — she’s my idol, she’s so inspirational.”
As of this writing, Waters had 1,918 followers on Instagram and shared 129 photos. Given all of her recent publicity as Kylie Jenner’s look alike, it’s reasonable to expect that number may grow.
