Take one look at Kylie Jenner's Instagram account, and it's clear that she's mastered the selfie and is well-aware of which angles best display her genetically blessed features, like that bee-stung pout and perfect bone structure. вЂњIt's all about good lighting, usually by a window with diffused light, and finding your best angles,вЂќ says Jenner. вЂњJust take a bunch of photos, you can always erase.вЂќ But for a refreshing change, Jenner stepped away from her own camera and let us do all the picture-taking at our '60s mod-inspired Byrdie feature shoot.
As the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, she's picked up a few beauty tricks over the years. What's the best tip she learned from her sisters? вЂњAlways apply sunscreen to your face and hands every day.вЂќ At just 17 years old, Jenner already has a unique personal style-lucky for us, though, she's also a risk-taker. In the capable hands of hairstylist Christian Marc and makeup artist Sage Maitri, the dark-haired beauty was more than willing to embrace their bold and (dare we say) edgy, retro hair and makeup looks. Flip through to see Jenner's take on the latest fall beauty trends.
"This look is a take on the classic wing, but we did it in thisВ blue, Lime Crime Eyeliner ($14) in Blue Milk,вЂќ Maitri says. To make the eye really pop, Maitri added lots of individual lashes throughout, and a semi-strip of lashes at the outer corners. To top it off, Maitri smudged black cream eyeliner at the base of the lashes to make them appear more doll-like and fluttery. On the lip, Maitri wanted something that wouldn't compete with the blue hue,В so she used LancГґme's Rouge in Love Lipstick ($29) in Rosemantic, a soft pink shade, and pressed it into the lips with her finger.
For the hair, the feeling was late '60s. "Very undone, nothing polished," Marc says. He worked with Jenner's natural wave and added salt spray and dry shampoo to enhance the texture.

Two words: glitter eyes. For Jenner's sparkling lids, Maitri ditched the eyeliner and gave the lids a pinky-tangerine base. She topped the soft shadow with Make Up For EverВ GlitterВ ($15) in the multicolored silver shade 13. Maitri blended Nars'В Audacious LipstickВ ($32) in Claudia and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics'В Lip TarВ ($18) inВ Digitalis to achieve the SweeTarts-inspired shade of lilac. The rest of the makeup was kept understated with glowy skin and candy-colored lips.
Marc left the bangs loose for this French twist (which showed Jenner's new undercut in the back). He didn't want the hair to look too polished, so he stayed away from product. The key was the side part with a gentle tease at the crown.Justin Coit

For Jenner's inky black cat-eye, Maitri used Chanel'sВ Г‰criture De Chanel Eyeliner PenВ ($35). To create the graphic shape, Maitri says to catch the angle where your eye meets your eyebrow, and use that as your starting point for your line. Maitri describes all of Jenner's beauty looks as вЂњmodern modвЂќ, which balances the retro feel with something more current. In this case, it was the combination of the graphic eyeliner and fresh lip color, like the shocking pink pigment of Nars'В LipstickВ ($26) in Schiap. The hue was perfect for Jenner, a self-proclaimed lipstick lover, who says she's вЂњdefinitely a lip girl. I love all different shades of pinks and browns."
In keeping with the late '60s vibe, Marc pulled the hair off the face in a loose, undone bun. First, he created volume with a large-barrel curling iron. Next, he teased the top section to give the look some height. Then, he smoothed the sides back and secured everything with a few bobby pins.В

Maitri gave Jenner a major set of lashes, this time with ones that created an upsweep on the outer corners to really change the shape of the eye. But the real nod to mod in this look? Painted-on bottom lashes. вЂњUse a tiny brush and cream liner to wisp out strokes along the lower lash line.вЂќ Brushed-up brows and a metallic copper shadow on the center of the lids completed the eyes. Maitri used Kevyn Aucoin'sВ Expert Lip ColorВ ($35) in Micavel, then paled it out with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics'В Lip TarВ ($1) in Cha Cha.
For this look, Marc wanted the hair to feel more early '60s. So he created big body (with help from a 1.25-inch curling iron and teasing comb), flipped the ends out, and gave Jenner a side part.В
