The Photogenic Trick Kendall Jenner Uses in Every Picture
It's no secret that Kendall Jenner looks great, well, always. Her style certainly helps—but her subtle yet statement-making photogenic trick also helps her look flawless in front of the camera. If you look closely, you'll notice she often tilts her head slightly to the right to frame her face and elongate her neck. Why does this work? Well, we tapped Getty Images photographer Steve Granitz (who has photographed the model several times) to get the scoop.
As Granitz explained, this trick will make you look slimmer and younger, and it will accentuate your jawline. Think about your angles—facing the camera straight-on is rarely flattering. Turning your head slightly to the right and lowering your chin gives your facial features depth. Why, you ask? Because this action gets rid of shadows, which can make your face look wider, larger, or slightly discoloured. Instead, do what Kendall does—stand slightly sideways and tilt your chin a bit downward and a tad to one side for a universally pleasing look.

Shop Pieces Kendall Jenner Would Love
In addition to Kendall's simple posing trick, here are the products she uses to get camera-ready.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($39)
The secret to Kendall's ever-coveted, effortless waves? This saltwater-based styling spray. She explains that her hair is "straight and silky and almost too healthy sometimes" (#supermodelproblems), and this is the perfect solution to get the tousled waves she's constantly seen wearing.
Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Vinyl Lip Color Shameless ($52)
Kendall definitely implements a more subtle beauty routine than her sisters, but she isn't one to shy away from a bold red lip. "It's awesome," she says of the product. "It's bright, and I love bright. And red is always a good colour."
