With over a billion Instagram followers combined, the Kardashian-Jenner clan certainly know a thing or two about showcasing their beauty for the world to see (and double tap).
Instagram is their way of giving fans a glimpse into what isn’t shown on TV. On any one of their accounts, one can find post gym and poolside selfies, their posts sharing birthday love, and almost always a few photographs that push the limit on how much skin they should reveal.
Say what you will about this family, but these girls clearly understand fashion, beauty, and most of all, getting attention. Steal their top Instagram beauty secrets and watch as the likes roll in.
15 The right angle
Taking the perfect selfie has become a sort of useful skill in today’s social media-obsessed world.
And if that's the case, Kylie Jenner has got that skill down pat.
In an interview with Byrdie magazine, the 17-year-old revealed her top selfie-taking tips. “It’s all about good lighting, usually by a window with diffused light, and finding your best angles.”
She adds that taking a lot of photographs helps too, as you can always erase the ones that don’t make the cut.
14 Makeup secrets
The Kardashians and now, the Jenners, have become beauty icons; in that, people search the Internet just to find ways to look like them.
Kim, the woman whose face was practically the first to show off contouring, has plenty of makeup secrets. In an interview with Into the Gloss, she shared some of her favourite products.
“My skin is more on the dry side, so I need a really thick moisturizer all the time. I love Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The Rich Cream because I love the scent and the rich creaminess. There’s also one that’s from Natura Bissē—the C+C Vitamin Cream.”
Kylie Jenner is another sister with her own beauty secrets. Despite dismissing the fact that she got her lips done for months, Kylie finally admitted to the claims, along with sharing some of the tricks she uses to accentuate them.
To achieve a pout like hers—non-surgically, of course—simply use a nude lip liner and overline the lips. Other lip enhancer tools (like Fulllips) may do the trick.
13 Always wear sunscreen
Swapping beauty secrets has become a norm within the Kardashian-Jenner sisters. The girls credit their glowing, healthy skin to always applying sunscreen to their face and hands everyday.
Rob Scheppy, a celebrity makeup artist who has worked with the family for years, revealed the beauty go-tos he uses on the girls.
In an interview with the MailOnline, he swears by using moisturizer, foundation, powder, and highlighter to achieve glowing skin. He also loves Eyeko makeup products and MAC lip liners to accentuate full lips.
12 Take style risks
While each Kardashian-Jenner has their own unique style, it’s 17-year-old Kylie who’s proven the most daring. While having been criticized for inappropriate outfits for her age, Kylie knows how to push the limits—and push the number of likes she can get on each selfie. Kylie told Seventeen that she accredits most of her style choices to wanting to be original and wearing what no one else is. Her hairstyles are proof of this, as she is often changing her colour between aqua blues and jet black.
The Kardashians, owners of the clothing store DASH and their own fashion lines, also know a thing or two about fashion.
Kourtney forgoes the “mommy style,” and maintains her style of wearing lots of prints and retro pieces such as flared pants and long tunics.
Despite landing on the Worst Dressed List in the past, Kim Kardashian has thoroughly learned from her fashion mistakes. She has played it safe in recent years, wearing lots of neutral colours and her favourite combo of a high-waisted skirt and crop top, paired with designer heels.
11 Know when you go au natural
As a model, Kendall is used to playing doll for makeup artists.
She may have bleached eyebrows one day and heavy makeup another. Because of this, she prefers spending her downtime sans makeup and is brave enough to share it.
In April 2015, she shared one of these photos on Instagram, showing off her natural beauty and freckled complexion. The photo garnered over 1.7 million likes, proving that natural beauty prevails.
10 Choose the right photo-editor
US Magazine reported that Kim Kardashian makes her selfies flawless courtesy of the free photo-editing app, Perfect365.
The app has over 20 photo-tweaking tools that allow users to airbrush their skin, hide blemishes, whiten their teeth, and much, much more.
9 Accentuate assets
As someone who posed completely nude for Paper Magazine, Kim Kardashian knows all about showing off her assets and #BreakingtheInternet.
In a video for T-Mobile, the self-professed selfie queen who even released her own selfie book, Selfish, gave expert advice on selfie-taking.
“If you don't have a mirror in front of you to figure out your pose and your angle make sure that the lighting is amazing because you want to blow out everything that you don't want to see and highlight all the good things that you do.”
It’s also important to know your best angles. For her, it’s with her chin down and taking 300 photos until she finds the perfect one.
8 Be creative
The most-liked photograph on Instagram today is Kendall Jenner’s artistic shot. In it, she is lying on the ground, eyes closed, in a lace white gown while her hair is styled into multiple hearts
Currently sitting close to three million likes, the photo shows that getting a little creative with your own photographs will boost likes.
7 Show a little skin
The Kardashian-Jenner clan are no strangers to showing skin. Doing so, however, requires skin looking its best.
When sharing beauty secrets with Allure Magazine, Kim revealed that she visits a Korean spa in the downtown area of Los Angeles for body scrubs.
Seventeen-year-old, Kylie Jenner, is also not against baring some skin. In plenty of selfies, she can be found poolside in daring swimsuits or, as of late, wearing chest-revealing dresses.
6 Lead a healthy lifestyle
The Kardashian-Jenner sisters understand that a healthy lifestyle leads to better beauty… and better selfies.
Khloe Kardashian has been on a health kick for the past year and a half, losing over 30 pounds. In an interview with Cosmopolitan Australia, she accredited her weight loss to her obsession with working out.
“I love to box. Boxing is really fun, and it’s such a stress reliever. I’m just so busy having fun, I forget that I’m working out; 45 minutes go by and I’m dripping wet. We do a lot of workouts together, my sisters and I, and we go on a lot of hikes and walks outside.”
She is also obsessed with the popular cardio workout, SoulCycle. And since she works out so much, she says that she doesn’t deprive herself, food-wise.
“If I ate better, I would lose weight faster, but I don’t want to. I love food and there’s lots of family time with food and your friends. I work out really hard so I can have my champagne and that part of life. I’d rather take longer to lose weight, but have fun doing it.”
Kim is also one to lead a healthy lifestyle, losing a whopping 50 pounds after her daughter, North, was born. She doesn’t drink alcohol often and her meals consist of mostly oatmeal for breakfast, salad for lunch, and chicken for dinner.
5 Change up your hairstyle
Kylie has become a chameleon of sorts by the way she is always changing up her hair colour. In the past year alone, she has donned her signature black hair, grey, light blue, and a black-and-blue ombré combination. Her changing style makes sense as she has her own line of hair extensions with Bellami Hair.
More recently, however, she sparked controversy after posting a picture on Instagram with her hair in cornrows. Hunger Games actress, Amandla Stenberg, took offensive to this, writing on social media, “When u appropriate black features and culture but fail to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism #whitegirlsdoitbetter.”
Justin Bieber reportedly came to the reality star’s side, by commenting on her photograph, asking fans to leave her alone and saying how calling her a racist is ridiculous.
4 Kylie’s lipstick tips
Getting lips just like Kylie’s would require lip injections. Luckily, her and her family have provided fans with tips on how to mimic her plump pout.
In an interview with the beauty duo, Pixiwoo, older sister Kim revealed one of Kylie’s signature tricks to creating bigger lips.
While imitating tracing a finger over her upper lip, Kim said, “Kylie draws her lip like this. She’s so good at makeup. She only wears a lip liner and fills it in. She doesn’t wear a lipstick or a gloss.”
3 Kim’s contouring tricks for perfect photos
Love her or hate her, Kim Kardashian certainly knows her way around makeup.
There are hundreds of makeup tutorials on Youtube and beauty blogs, always trying to recreate her look. The most popular? Contouring.
The makeup trick was developed by celebrity makeup artist, Rob Scheppy. In April, Glamour magazine reported the contouring tricks he revealed at a seminar.
“For me, it’s about redefining certain features—what you want to highlight and what you want to get rid of.”
The areas to darken include under the cheekbones, around the hairline, along the jawlines, and up the sides of the nose. Lighter shades should hit under the eyes, in the middle, flat centre of the forehead, and along the middle of the nose. After this, blend to perfection.
2 Kim’s perfect pouting tips
Kylie isn’t the only sister with luscious lips.
Kim keeps her pout perfect with a few of her favourite products, including EOS Lip Balm Smooth Sphere in the colour, Strawberry Sorbet.
As for her usual lip makeup, she swears by Mac Stripdown lip liner, Mac Angel lipstick, and Nars Turkish delight lip gloss.
1 Kendall’s street style
For a model, every street is the runway. And Kendall Jenner treats it just like that. Her street style is often featured in fashion magazines and can be summarized as chic, relaxed, and trendy.
A few of these signature pieces include dark skinny jeans, wrap-around scarves, white t-shirts, ripped jeans, and almost always completing her outfit with cute shoes and designer purses.
