They’re the experts! Kendall and Kylie Jenner boast a combined total of almost 100 million followers on Instagram — and there’s a reason for their popularity. The reality stars and social media savants have mastered, among other things, the art of the selfie. “It’s all about the lighting!” the Jenner girls told Us at the launch of their Kendall + Kylie collection at a Tribeca Penthouse Loft Space in NYC on February 8.
“You have to know your angles,” Kendall, 20, added. “I think there’s one particular angle that’s flattering to everyone, and you have to know your face and work that. I don’t look good from every angle, so I make sure I use my best one. And of course, practice in the mirror.”
Kylie has a few different tricks up her sleeve. “It’s really just how I edit them, that’s the real trick,” she dished. The 18-year-old also let Us in on how she sets up the perfect picture for her 50 million followers. “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 to crazy [with editing], but it’s important,” she advised.
The Jenner sisters also spoke with Us about the pressures they face with so many eyes on them at all times. “I think subconsciously I do go out with the knowledge that someone is going to catch a photo of me, but at the same time I want to be able to go out in sweats, too, like everybody else, so I do!” Kendall shared. “I think I’ve found a happy middle ground.”
Kylie also feels the pressure to look her best, but has learned how to go incognito when she needs to. “I do feel pressure when I know I’ll be photographed, but I have my ways of getting around the paparazzi, so I can decide,” she told Us. “I also like to dress more casual nowadays. I hate wearing heels. I’m totally changing as a person. I love my sneakers now!”
The Jenner sisters were definitely putting their skills to good use during the launch of their Kendall + Kylie collection, taking selfies with brother-in-law Kanye West, family friend Lance Bass and of course, momager Kris Jenner.
