The Photogenic Trick Kendall Jenner Uses in Every Picture

It's no secret that Kendall Jenner always looks great. 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 downwards and a tad to one side for a universally pleasing look.
