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 discolored. 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.

"It makes your foundation last longer and look better," Kendall confirms. In KJ We Trust.
Kendall is not the only one to swear by this dew-enhancing foundation. This product has every Kardashian's seal of approval—enough said.
Perfect for the summer (or any day, really) when you feel like going au naturel. "I use this when I'm not wearing any makeup. It makes my lashes pop so I don't need mascara," she says.
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 color."
We obviously had to ask what the girl who doesn't need an Instagram filter does for her skin and her answer was simple: Her favorite product (if she had to choose) would be this amazing night cream—it's "amazing," she mused.
