With 78.6 million followers, Kylie Jenner is undoubtedly the queen of Instagram. And since her popular page is filled with almost nothing but selfies, it seems like the Queen of Instagram knows a thing or two about the art form of talking them.
Kylie was recently generous about sharing her selfie secrets with us on her website thekyliejenner.com. And her secrets go above and beyond looking into the camera but never the mirror when you're taking a photo.
The secret to her success? Simple! "“Sunset lighting," says Jenner. The hour just before the sun sets is known as "the magic hour" or "the golden hour" because the sun emits a softer light that makes photography pop.
While Kylie owns a special kit she purchased from eBay to help her achieve the best possible lighting in her selfies, she still swears by the magic hour lighting. Nothing gives you a golden glow like the sun's natural light.
The sky also has a nice golden hue during the magic hour, which makes your skin look soft and glowy. The magic hour has been a film industry secret for decades, so it's no wonder Kylie takes full advantage of the time when nature works its magic.
Kylie also recommends to purse your lips slightly, like you're blowing a kiss. The woman practically made #fingermouthing a thing all by herself, so she knows a thing or two about how to make the perfect face.
Kylie admits she edits her photos. “It's really just how I edit them, that's the real trick. I feel like people want to see my whole outfit, so I'll have my friends just take full body pictures of me in my backyard and then you have to edit them! Don't go too crazy [with editing], but it's important," says Kylie.
