Pregnant Kylie Jenner scraps the filter as she shares close-up video of her makeup after blackfishing accusations

KYLIE Jenner ditched the filter while sharing a close-up video of her makeup after being accused of blackfishing.

The pregnant KUWTK star, 24, and her sister Kendall, 25, faced controversy after appearing to have darker skin in a clip on her Instagram Stories.

And on Wednesday, Kylie went filter-free as she applied products to her face from her cosmetics line.

The reality star – who is mom to three-year-old daughter Stormi – filmed herself putting on lipliner and pink lipstick.

She appeared to be preparing for a photoshoot and had her dark glossy hair pinned back in waves.

The beauty mogul came under fire earlier this week while filming herself and Kendall in the car on the way to their sister Kourtney's engagement party with Travis Barker.

Critics pointed out the siblings' noticeably darker skin in the short video.

One wrote on Reddit: "Filter or black fishing?" as another responded, "I think blackfishing?!"

Another chimed in: "Ok if THIS is not blackfishing what is?? This is literal blackface."

Blackfishing refers to someone pretending to be Black or mixed-race using things like hairstyling and makeup.

This is not the first time that Kylie has been accused of the act, which is seen as a type of cultural appropriation.

Back in March she was called out after sharing a short clip of her face, in which critics claimed she had “completely changed skin color.”

Meanwhile, last month the young mom revealed that she's pregnant with her second child with her boyfriend Travis Scott, 30.


As part of the pregnancy announcement, Kylie shared a video that included footage from a visit to the doctor for an ultrasound with Travis and their daughter.

Later in the clip, the couple surprised momager and family matriarch Kris Jenner with the exciting news by handing over a photo of the ultrasound.

"Are you pregnant?" Kris asked, before squealing: "Stormi, we're gonna have a baby! This is one of the happiest days of my life."

Kylie has been sharing regular videos of her baby bump and recently said she has "popped" in the last few weeks.

The TV personality has been candid about her pregnancy cravings, tucking into mac and cheese and cupcakes with Stormi.


Last week, she swaddled her legs in $1,200 compression and massage wraps to cope with cramps.

The reality star recorded footage of the Normatec Hyperice devices that both massage and increase blood circulation in the limbs.

The expensive device, which has been used by athletes to achieve maximum recovery after injuries, helps reduce "pain" in the legs due to severe cramping.

According to WebMD, many women experience cramping in their legs as they near the third trimester of their pregnancy.

The medical site has claimed the issue "may have to do with changes in blood circulation and stress on your leg muscles from carrying extra weight."
