Olivia Munn wiped away rumours that her full, gorgeous lips are the result of cosmetic surgery by removing her professionally done face of makeup in a video on her Instagram account.
The 37-year-old appeared at an event hosted by Variety, WWD and the CFDA looking seriously radiant in a yellow blazer, white tee and high-waisted shorts.
Her face was also aglow, with big, luscious lips that looked so good they set the internet ablaze with rumours of cosmetic surgery.
“What happened to your face? Why? Why? You are such a natural beauty,” one Instagram commenter wrote.
“You’re beautiful, but shame on the doctor that did that to your lips,” said another.
Now, any of Munn’s followers who would have taken a look at her Instagram Stories videos for that day would have been privy to the process that Mary Phillips went through in order to create the look, because Munn actually documented her time in the makeup artist’s chair. But many didn’t see that video. (Not that that excuses their comments — even if Munn had undergone elective surgery, that’s entirely her prerogative and not something the public need comment on.)
Still, to prove to her fans that she hadn’t gone under the knife, so to speak, Munn once again took to social media, this time posting a video (which we’ve broken down into handy snaps for those of you who missed the temporary story) of her removing the makeup.
“On my way to the airport so I gotta…bring down my makeup,” Munn said in the video, using a wet towel to swipe away the products that had fooled the internet just minutes before.
And then, to show there were no hard feelings, she posted a follow-up shot of herself in casual, airplane-ready mode. “Bye bye luscious lips”…and surgery rumours.
It’s a pretty soft clap back, but a clap back nonetheless. Props to Munn for clearing the air here and putting an end to the rumours in a classy and informative way.
And if you want to get the lip look yourself, Phillips shares all the products she used on Munn in an Instagram post.
