As arguably one of the biggest pop stars in the world, Billie Eilish has people commenting on her appearance all the time — and while she usually doesn't respond, rumors claiming that she overlined her lips in a recent photo prompted her to speak up. The headlines started circulating after the "Bad Guy" singer shared a passport-style picture of herself earlier this week, though the odd part is, Eilish's lips look no different in the photo than they normally do.

The 19-year-old songwriter took to her Instagram Stories on Saturday, January 16, to clear things up with her fans. She reshared a post by @nvmbillie that features screenshots of the aforementioned headlines, along with the caption: "y'all i have literally never overlined my lips in my liiiiiiiiife😭😭 I haven't even worn lipstick since I was 13 plz💀."

Of course, it's worth noting that there's nothing wrong with overlining your lips. It's an amazing trick used by makeup artists, influencers, and beauty editors alike to fake the appearance of slightly fuller lips. That being said though, Eilish has every right to be annoyed that people are claiming she overlined her lips when she never actually said that she did.

From what we can tell, Eilish has always had naturally lush, full lips thanks to good old genetics. Case in point: On her 19th birthday, she shared a photo of herself as a toddler, and in it, her lips look red and pouty just like they do now.

Needless to say, we're proud of Eilish for standing up for herself and putting the rumors to rest.
