Kim Kardashian claims she’s ‘never’ had a nose job: ‘Everyone thought I did’


Kim Kardashian did a makeup Master Class last weekend, and that’s actually why she missed her niece Stormi’s crazy birthday party. There are several headlines from Kim’s Master Class, which I’m covering separately, but let’s just take a moment and really think about how Kim is considered such an expert on makeup that she’s out there doing makeup Master Classes and charging tons of money for it. It’s whack, right? Anyway, Kim talked a little bit about plastic surgery during the Master Class, but it’s not what anyone expected – she claims that people always think she got a nose job, but she didn’t.

Kim Kardashian West is setting the record straight about her nose. The reality star, 38, admitted she loves laser treatments to treat stretch marks and even documented her first Botox experience on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2010. But there’s one cosmetic procedure she hasn’t gotten: a nose job.

“I never had my nose done,” Kardashian West revealed as she got her makeup done by her longtime pro Mario Dedivanovic during The Master Class in L.A. on Feb. 9. “Everyone thought I did, and I said wait until I have kids because your real features come out.” She added on Twitter, “I said you will see when I have kids, they will have the same nose as me.”

While he did her makeup in front of a room full of aspiring makeup artists and fans, Dedivanovic explained that Kardashian West has a small bump on her nose, which he discreetly hides using a nose contouring technique. Still, Kardashian West does understand why some people might think she went under the knife — even she notices a difference in her face at times!

“Pictures, I swear, I look at them and would be like, ‘Wow the bump looks so much bigger in some pictures than in others,’” the KKW Beauty mogul said.

[From People]

CB thinks Kim is telling the truth, in that there was no nose job, but Kim has just had so much other work (mostly injectibles) that her face looks different, and thus her nose looks different too. I used to believe that Kim had subtly tweaked her nose a little with surgery, but I honestly don’t know at this point. Kim has done so much other stuff – lasering her baby hairs off, the catlike Botox, the lip injections – and she legit wears a million pounds of makeup. Maybe she’s telling the truth about this one thing.

    Yeah, and your sister never got lip filler either. 🙄

    • dogmom says:

      Ikr? We have eyes, gurl — we can see how much your family’s faces have changed over the years. And by my count Kim has had at least three nose jobs. The nose she had when she was married to Kris Humphries was the best, IMO.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        and she was so much prettier and “softer” looking before all her work.

        nowadays she looks so severe. and unhappy.

      • Snowflake says:

        Yes, she had slready had at least one nose job by Kris Humphries period and Botox. ButShe should have stopped there, she still looked natural.

    • AnnaKist says:

      👖 🔥

      Uh-huh. We have eyes, grey matter AND the internet. She was a beautiful girl, and I believe she would have aged well, with a few tweaks at the age she is now, if she really felt she had to. As it is, she turned herself into a frozen, vacant-eyed, soulless, deluded wax dummy.

    • Arpeggi says:

      And their butts and boobs are real…

      • Good GRrrrrl says:

        I had a nose job, I kept my “bump” and don’t admit to any surgery…takes one to know one, s’ true

    • Raina says:

      She says it’s the kids that changed her.
      I’m not sure why my boobs didn’t grow and get more firm, why my face didn’t have less wrinkles, why my nose didn’t thin, why my ass didn’t raise after I had my kid. She must have very accommodating babies.

    • JoJo says:

      Yeah and your ass is real too

    • Jadedone says:

      Remember when she claimed her butt was real too? She even had an x-ray to prove it ( despite the fact injections wouldn’t show up)

    • Eleonor says:

      And her a§$ is real.

  2. ByTheSea says:

    No. she left her nose alone and re-did her entire face!

    • WingKingdom says:

      Yes, I agree with this. The lips are obvious, she’s got some kind of cheek bone implants, everything is botoxed, but her nose looks the same as it did years ago. All the fake is around it.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        The “old” photos of her above are after her 1st nose job. She’s had several and she started young. Theirs photos of her from the side, and the nose jobs are very obvious in those pics.

    • Char says:

      She countours the nose to make it look thinner. I also think she just changed the entire face with fillers and wears make up that changes her face as well.

    • BaronSamedi says:

      Agreed. You can see the contouring in the second picture and nothing about the nose really changed.

      Also it sounds like it wasn’t so much her master class as a master class that she was a part of as a model.

    • Garedasna says:

      Yup, I don’t think she’s done her nose at all.

      One thing that does amaze me is that her skin under that permanent inch of makeup seems… good? My skin is quite clear and I usually just wear tinted moisture, but If I have two nights in a week where I really spackle on makeup I feel like I’m getting bumps and spots for a days after. I have no idea how her skin manages to look like it’s pretty good under the industrial strength stuff she wears.

      • Erinn says:

        “but If I have two nights in a week where I really spackle on makeup I feel like I’m getting bumps and spots for a days after”

        It could be something in the makeup you’re using, too. I mean – she’s got an insane amount of money, she can test out any and every product until she finds stuff that works with her skin. That, and I’m sure she’s using some great primers to create a barrier between her skin and the makeup. I know I can break out relatively easily – the Fenty foundation would take me from no blemish to a blemish after a few hours of wear. There’s just something in it that doesn’t get along with my skin. But I can wear my coverfx power play foundation and not have that issue.

      • Rando says:

        They get skin work done too. Lasers, facials, microdermabrasion. All of us would have better skin with all that help.

      • Brandy Alexander says:

        I used to have the worst skin until I got a makeover at Sephora one day and they suggested the Givenchy makeup line for me. My skin instantly cleared up which sent me looking to see what was different from the brands I was wearing before. I found I need paraben free makeup. You’re be surprised how much of the big name makeup companies are not paraben free.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      She shortened the tip of her nose, and had a brow lift, in addition to all the fillers.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yeah I believe she altered everything but her nose.

      I hope that whole family fades out of the spotlight, but I would like a follow up in 20-30 years to see what all that early plastic surgery does to a person.

    • Snowflake says:

      No, there is more space between the end of her nose and her lips. But in the before pic , she had already had at least one nose job.

  3. LORENA says:

    She really lost her look when she lasered off her baby hairs

    • Monicack says:

      This! I always wondered why no one else comments on this.

    • launicaangelina says:

      Agreed! She was a stunner before, but now, she looks so plastic and manufactured.

    • tealily says:

      I know. She was so naturally beautiful! Now she just looks like a blow up doll. To each their own, but it’s so sad.

      • Steff says:

        It’s such a shame she wasn’t happy with her original face because she was naturally stunning. So many people would kill to look like that.

    • LadyT says:

      Why is this a thing to do? My son’s hair stylist did that to his hairline once. It looked unnatural and silly to me. I’m glad it was temporary.

  4. Josephine says:

    It used to tip down, now it doesn’t, and there is more room btw her nose and her top lip. She trolls for a living, this is no different.

    • Amanda says:

      Yeah, she’s definitely had the tip shortened/rotated and some nostril work.

    • Eliza says:

      Maybe she thinks it doesn’t count as a nose job if the bone isn’t broken or shaved. Because that’s technically rhinoplasty. She had other nose work done. They obviously tweaked the cartilage.

      • Nancy says:

        Maybe if you believe a lie, it becomes true to you. In the early years, she complained about her profile and the bump. The bump is long gone, as are her baby hairs, her original lips, etc. I don’t agree that she was so gorgeous before her surgery either, just one lucky woman who hooked up with the right guy to make her and her family set for life. Now please Khloe, don’t you start, this one has had several noses during the series alone. Even Kourtney did the nose. We all know Kylie is natural…LOL!!!!!

      • Dee says:

        Eliza, I think you are spot on. She had some layers removed from the tip and just below the tip (I mean, you can totally see it — she looks Armenian before and looks like Barbie now), but she thinks this doesn’t count as a nose job.

    • Wilady says:

      I kinda believe her. If you darken the shadows on the tip and sides, it narrows it, and is actually still slightly croojed. MAYBE filler in the tip, which she doesn’t consider a nose job, but I don’t see more than that and contouring.

      You cannot slide your nose up your face either, so the space between her nose and mouth is probably from upper lip Botox, and lip filler pulling it down. But that’s not a nose job. She’s obviously no stranger to treatments, but I believe her on the nose job. Why lie? She’s admitted to drugs, other surgery and treatments, and other unflattering info. Nose job would be a dumb lie IMO.

      • Erinn says:

        Plus in the comparison photos she’s smiling open mouthed compared to a neutral expression. It can give the appearance of less space. I also think that it’s a lot of contouring, and possibly a slight filler, but even then I’m not sure. I think if she’d gotten a nose job she’d have gone full tilt with it.

      • leela says:

        “Why lie? She’s admitted to drugs, other surgery and treatments, and other unflattering info.”. Lying is what they do to sell whatever it is they are selling at a particular time. She (and her sisters) never actually admitted to their surgically enhanced bodies (booty of lies anyone?) but advertised their shape as the product of waist enhancers, teas, some exercise programmes, what-have-yous, etc. . . Their whole lives are product placements and like all advertisments – almost 90% is false. I’m sure that if anyone will look far enough, they will see her real nose. Remember, Kylie only admitted to lip fillers just last year & attributed her fuller lips to make-up magic as well (or lipstick techniques in her case) when the public started noticing her fuller lips years ago.

    • jay says:

      Either way, she has a big philtrum now like so many other cat faced ladies. I want to draw whiskers on it.

    • marmalazed says:

      Exactly this. The tip is different. It’s subtle but changes the whole look of her face (in addition to all of the other fillers, etc.)

  5. Bryn says:

    Is that true about people’s noses changing during and after pregnancy? A lot of celebs say it, but mine never and I know tons of people who have had children and their noses don’t look any different

    • LORENA says:

      If anything I’ve noticed people’s nose may get a little wider during pregnancy, I never noticed it changing entirely. But I think she meant that her kids will have her features so by that we will know she hasn’t had a nose job? I am not sure what she really meant tho

    • Amanda says:

      They can sometimes get wider or swollen but then return to how they were afterwards. But they never get more defined, slimmer, tipped up, ski-sloped or refined.

    • AnnaKist says:

      I was reading, only a month ago, about how many peoples’ noses grow wider and more bulbous as they age, but she’s still young enough not to have to worry about this. If her nose did swell due to pregnancy, there’s been ample time for it to return to normal. Nope, what she has there is the result of several “procedures’’, no matter how much sh denies it.

      • jan90067 says:

        Sadly, it does widen as you age. I now have a potato sitting in the middle of my face, that no amount of contouring “fixes” lol. And your nose, AND EARS, do “grow” (ie: sag) with age due to a breakdown of collagen. More good news! 😝 I used to have such *tiny*, dainty ears, and now, I have my Grandmother’s boat sails…ugh!

  6. Lala11_7 says:

    She sounds absolutely insane with this stance…

    Stevie Wonder could see the difference….

    • jan90067 says:

      LOLOL. love that expression. I always use “A blind man in New Jersey could see it”.

      • Raina says:

        Honestly curious: Why New Jersey? Is there a level of eye sight there that I’m not aware of? Do they have better optimists? Am I not seeing something?
        Why use New Jersey when, for example, you could use poqupssiee?
        I know a lot of blind people there. I am one of them as I can’t properly spell the word via keyboard.

  7. Ctgirl says:

    If you look at profile photos of her through the years, the size and shape of her nostrils has changed. There isn’t anything original left about her body and face.

  8. Clare says:

    I personally see the same nose in both pictures – but I’m not an expert in plastic surgery or Kim Kardashian.

    I think she’s just got a face full of injectables which is then covered in spackle levels of makeup…she looks totally different without it.

  9. BrickyardUte says:

    She also claims her butt is natural.

  10. L84Tea says:

    She MIGHT be telling the truth about her nose, although the tip looks a little touched up to me. But she definitely got her chin and lips done, which changed her face a lot. She really doesn’t even look like the same person anymore.

  11. Esmerelda says:

    She looked so human before! Now she looks “plastic”, all her proportions are slightly off… it must be so difficult to learn to live with a whole new face.

  12. RBC says:


  13. Nev says:

    beautiful woman. with or without surgery or tweaks.

    • Kitten says:

      I think she’s still really pretty, but a bit lifeless/robotic. Pre-surgery she just had so much more..vitality? you know what I mean? She looked fresh and natural and..human.

      Maybe it’s because she used to smile back then IDK…

      • Swack says:

        Remember, she doesn’t smile because it causes wrinkles!

      • Veronica S. says:

        Looking at old pictures of her is kind of depressing – her face had so much more character to it! I mean, yes, when her makeup artist isn’t going overboard with the contour, she’s beautiful, but it’s so…generic now. She was beautiful before and beautiful now, but she’s lost a lot of unique traits in the process.

      • Kitten says:

        @ Swack- Can you imagine depriving yourself of joy just to save yourself from wrinkles? Insane.

        @Veronica- Exactly. It’s like she erased all the things that made her unique. Sad.

    • Nic says:

      No, she always looks smelly.

    • I’ve always thought Kim was really beautiful. It’s the culture vulture-ing, the trolling, and the lies I don’t like about her.

  14. HK9 says:

    …..aaaaaaand this is why I love this site. 🙂

  15. Cherie says:

    The bridge of your nose does not magically slender away while pregnant. I’ll give her ‘features chabce’ They don’t disappear. Her nose below the bridge and above the nostrils was clearly wider with less definition, more of a spread to the cheek area.
    But ok, get back to your squats that grew that ass.

  16. Phonycat says:

    Yeah, this goes along with her I’m Armenian and we have big butts comment. As her butt kept getting larger and larger to freakish porportions. Lies lika rug

    • Nancy says:

      Kourtney has the same bloodline she does and has a little butt. Kim has the cat face, along with her mother, they’re skating into the Joan Rivers/Michael Jackson arena, along with 21 year old Kylie. Do these women not own mirrors. Right!

  17. anp says:

    Her and that family are constantly trying to re-write their history.

  18. Case says:

    Does she understand how damaging and irresponsible it is for her to lie about this? Young girls (unfortunately) look up to her.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Why would it bother her? She’s a vapid, shallow, narcissist, who lives in a bubble of delusion and privilege, selling her brand to fill her already overflowing coffers. She uses her platform to convince people that, they too, can be (her brand of) beautiful, simply by entering their credit card details for whatever dodgy products she’s flogging at the time. What drives her is narcissism, fame and money, not concern for others’ well-being.

    • jan90067 says:

      A narcissist takes that as their due. She doesn’t care that she’s damaging their self-esteem, or WHY they “adore” her, as long as they DO.

  19. Cindy says:

    I forgot how pretty she actually was before everything she did to her face.

  20. ZigZags says:

    Uh, I remember when she had the nose job that seemed to lift her nose up off of her face and raise it by about half an inch. She had this huge upper lip area for a while. It reminded me of when my dad would shave off his mustache and it appeared that he had a huge parking lot for an upper lip area. He didn’t. But it appeared that way because the mustache took up so much real estate.

  21. styla says:

    I wouldn’t disagree with her, it looks the same but her face does look a lot different because of fillers and all that. My 20 year old face and my 35 year old face are a lot different though without any work of any kind. Especially my cheeks!

  22. cora says:

    She did the nose a bit, but what changed the most is her bite. THat changes the whole face, the jaw is VERY different as the cheeks and obviously the baby hair….her eyes are different as well. No shame though, good for her

  23. Jen says:

    Well, given the family’s track record of lying on this topic, I don’t trust her responses. Remember when Kylie started transforming and was denying what was plain to see until she finally admitted about her lips?

    Anyhow, her nose really isn’t that different. Her chin was reduced and she has cheek implants. Her lips are filled and Botox is raising up her eyebrows. That’s the conservative end, plainly visible face stuff. Guessing she does a lot of lasering of skin surface too.

  24. PhD Gossip says:

    KK has a few nose jobs. Go back to photos when she was PARIS Hilton’s stylist. She had a HUGE shnazzola then. You didn’t go back far enough!

  25. Abby says:

    Yeah, Ivanka hasn’t had a nose job either………………..

  26. Elaine says:

    Then how did the space between her nose and lips become huge and look insanely unnatural / Grinch like???

  27. me says:

    Kim is not a make-up expert. Mario is. She just sits there while he applies her make-up and teaches techniques.

  28. Elaine says:

    Also 2006 is not her original nose!! Go back further…

  29. Happy_fat_mamma says:

    The Emperor has no clothes.
    Kim Kardashian has a new nose.
    If Trump says he is a good guy,
    people ask, “Why would he lie?”
    Watch out or the election will be thrown.

  30. VeryVeryTerryJerry says:

    She’s had several, and more surgery than Michael Jackson ever did. Please.

  31. Raina says:

    Michael Jackson never had a nose job either.
    I get it.
    Btw, I prefer her old nose. I’m surprised her new one didn’t grow from that lie.

    • jan90067 says:

      Yeah, MJ said he never bleached his skin, that he had impetigo, but that NEVER produces an even skin tone… I will NEVER understand that level of self-delusion.

      • JoJo says:

        It’s vitiligo.

      • Veronica says:

        He did have vitiligo – you can actually see the progression of the disease on his chest and hands in pictures from the 90s before he’d lost pigment on his face. This being said, given the way the industry is, I wouldn’t be surprised if he felt pressured to “even out” the effect by bleaching. I have vitiligo, and while it’s less noticeable because I have fair skin, I can see why somebody with darker skin may find the effect superficially displeasing.

      • jwoolman says:

        I ran into a forum for people with vitiligo and they all said they could spot the patches of depigmented skin in photos of Michael Jackson as a very young man. They also said that at some point, there is so much depigmented skin that it can be easier to bleach the smaller amount of pigmented skin than to use makeup to cover the depigmented skin to match. I think he simply reached that point.

        He also had real issues stemming from the burning incident. Vitiligo itself can be painful for some (involvement of nerve tissue) and the damage done by the fire could also result in serious chronic pain issues. Too bad he didn’t hire a team of pain management and sleep disorder experts to deal with it all rather than taking the do-it-yourself approach.

  32. NeoCleo says:

    The before and after photos DO NOT LIE, unlike Mrs. West. I have had my nose done and it is a subtle, beautiful example of plastic surgery–so I know what to look for. Kimmie has definitely had her nose sculpted.

  33. Molly says:

    Of course she had a nose job. Why lie about it? It’s 2019, and a nose job is basically entry level plastic surgery. Nothing secret or shameful about it. Everyone in LA has had one.

  34. Liz says:

    I feel slightly bad for her. I mean, good on her for somehow staying in the news. The reason I feel bad is because she is hugely over-motivated to do so even beyond staying bankable. People who can’t sit still are kind of unbalanced. Also as per her “looks”, if she’s as savvy was she appears, then she knows she fucked up huge with too many cosmetic treatments/procedures. Things that are irreversable. She will never be able to look fresh again, which she still should be able to do. Maybe magically somehow she will achieve this, who knows, but it will be like admitting defeat for her in a way to change her look drastically, because she’s so obsessed with seeming ‘natural’, which is an obvious oxymoron to everything the brand is selling, so…

  35. Lynne says:

    I saw her in a coffee shop a few years ago. No paps around and she was not glammed up. I was seated facing her so it wasn’t just an in passing encounter. Very pretty eyes, but her nose looks disproportionate, too short. There is no way that injectables could ‘erase’ the tip.
    Maybe she was being specific, about not having width changed like when she said she was insistent that she didn’t have implants in her butt (but didnt say anything about fat transfers ).
    She was with the blond woman who did kardashian hair or makeup? Name escapes me now.

  36. Greta says:

    I don‘t know, her nose is the only thing that looks the same, just a few years „matured“. It was already really small before and I also noticed my nose (always wanted a nose that is more narrow) changed over the last years (to the better). So… maybe she actually really tells the truth? 😀

  37. DS9 says:

    There are two kinds of people in this thread, makeup people and everyone else.

    Contouring really can change the look of your face.

    • Raina says:

      That is not ALL contouring.
      I agree there are two types: Delusional and not delusional.
      Btw, I don’t think there is one thing wrong with plastic surgery but own it if you’re going to go public.
      And, it might not be a full nose job. Just whatever. I don’t know, am not a surgeon.
      With all these followers she has, she should be honest.

  38. Nina says:

    I miss her old face. She was so cute.

  39. Veronica says:

    My God, what is even the point of lying about it now after so many other procedures? It’s not like anybody cares about plastic surgery at this point, anyhow.

  40. clairej says:

    When you see side profiles from her younger days it looks very obvious. Can make up change that??

      • Tiffany :) says:

        No, it can’t. Make-up changes the way light bounces off of things, but it can’t move mountains or noses, unless there is photoshop involved. I’ve done theatrical make-up, I know that it has great power, but let’s not get delusional about the extent to which it can work.

      • Clairej says:

        I need to watch a tutorial because that must take some serious skills.

  41. Velvet Elvis says:

    Omg are you people blind?? Go look at some more pics, especially in profile. Highlights and shadowing doesn’t hide a bump or shrink your nose from a side view. And look at her nostrils now and then. She has very prominent nostrils now that she didn’t used to have. Stop believing her “I’ve had nothing done” lies. She’s had EVERYTHING done.

  42. PhillyGal says:

    With all the plastic surgery and other procedures this woman has had over many years, why does she even care if people think she had a nose job? Just another opportunity to get attention.

  43. Christy says:

    I can’t stand the Kardashians BUT looking at pictures of her before and now, if they were two different people, I would prefer her now look. Knowing that it is largely surgically created takes away any feeling that she is “beautiful” though. To me, things that are beautiful are beautiful because they are naturally occurring. Like a diamond versus CZ. Things do not have to be “perfect” to be beautiful.

    And it’s interesting. Her nose does look basically the same shape but how did she get more space between her upper lip and her nose? She couldn’t move her mouth lower on her face and her upper lip isn’t smaller so it almost had to be her nose that was altered.

  44. ferdinand says:

    Liked her better when she looked like Jafar from Aladdin.

  45. Jessie says:

    I don’t think she’s had nearly the face work people think she has. She is really good at contouring and that shit can make you look like a completely different person

  46. Lea says:

    She’s had a nose job. Her nose was longer and was forming some kind of arch and it’s not the case anymore.
    I think she has had so much Botox and fillers that her face is unrecognizable anyway. And it’s sad because she was a true beauty. Now she looks just like her mom.

  47. A says:

    I don’t think she’s had a nose job. Maybe my eyes are just shit, I dunno, but tbh, I don’t think that most people aren’t that great at spotting plastic surgery as they think they are. And in the kase of the Kardashians, I think they fuel the speculation a lot, but in reality, they haven’t had as much done as we think. But the persistent discussion about it keeps them in the public eye so.

    But yeah. I don’t think she’s had a nose job. Just my perspective. I think people really forget how different faces can look in different photos because they’re all taken from different angles and the lighting is different in each one, plus the make up is also different. I know it seems far fetched to say that but that’s what I honestly think. It’d be easier to tell if she’d had a nose job if the nose job was the only thing she had done.

  48. mara says:

    It’s really sad that she feels the need to straight up lie about the work that she has had done.
    Why not just own it?
    I will never understand.

  49. Littlefishmom says:

    She 100% did something to her nose. Period. I think she had then tip changed ever so slightly. There is no way she didn’t.

  50. Shannon Malcom says:

    For whatever reason, I actually re-watched the first episode of KUWTK the other day, and her different nose was the first thing I noticed. So … whatever lol

    At very least, she had a tip plasty done, so maybe she’s bending the truth there because it’s a separate procedure to do the end of the nose? I had a rhinoplasty and tip plasty done at the same time, so that’s what made me think of it, since the space between her upper lip and nose is a lot larger now.

    At this point, her nose seems like a really useful distraction, I just can’t figure out from what, because there are so many choices for “what.”

    And she wonders why her assoriasis is acting up?
    You’re not happy and you’re whole life is based on keeping up and appearance and image!!
