Kylie Jenner accused cosmetics developer and Emmy-winning make-up artist Kevin James Bennett of spreading “false information” after Bennett mentioned Jenner was “gaslighting” her followers in images she posted from a manufacturing unit in Italy earlier this week.
Bennett, who labored as the important thing make-up artist on reveals like “As The World Turns” and “Another World,” mentioned that the sweetness mogul didn’t observe correct protocols in a collection of images she shared on Instagram.
“I’m a cosmetic developer and work with cosmetic manufacturers (and their labs) as part of my job,” Bennett mentioned on Instagram Wednesday. “I have very short hair, and I’ve NEVER been allowed into the lab or onto the manufacturing floor without a hair net, shoe covers, mask … and disposable GLOVES.”
“Kylie is gaslighting her followers into thinking she is creating cosmetics,” Bennett added. “And I’d like to know what ignorant manufacturer (in Italy) let her stage this photo-op in their lab and on the manufacturing floor – without following proper sanitation protocols. I need the name because I want to make sure my clients NEVER work with them.”
Jenner responded on to the make-up artist on his Instagram put up, telling Bennett that the images have been “not taken in a manufacturing facility.”
“I would never bypass sanitary protocols and neither would any other celeb or beauty brand owner,” she mentioned, including, “that’s completely unacceptable i agree.”
“This is a small personal space creating my own fun samples and taking pictures for content nowhere near the mass manufacturing,” the 24-year-old added. “No one is putting customers at risk ! shame on you kevin for spreading false information !!!!”
Bennett responded, once more accusing Jenner of “serious gaslighting,” as she was “looking into an expensive homogenizing kettle that had processed at least 50 liters of a complexion product (the product still covering the mixing paddles) without PPE or your hair tied back, wearing a @weareregi lab coat?”
“But this is not a cosmetics manufacturing facility? It’s a personal space?” he questioned. “Wow, there’s some serious gaslighting going on here.”
Jenner responded by merely saying, “oh were you there kevin? ugh now i have to change my dogs name.” (Jenner certainly has a canine named Kevin.)
Bennett didn’t again down from his accusations, and ended up calling out Selena Gomez in a separate Instagram for a collection of images she posted that have been just like Jenner’s at an Italian laboratory in July. Gomez additionally has a make-up line, Uncommon Magnificence.
“Celebrities should not be allowed to bypass sanitation protocols for a photo-op just because they’re rich or famous,” Bennett mentioned, calling out the producers and calling on each Jenner and Gomez to apologize.
“Kylie and Selena are BOTH WRONG and should issue public apologies for requesting the labs to breach sanitation protocols for their self-promotion,” he wrote.
