How Kylie Jenner Takes Her Perfect Selfies

Kylie Jenner just passed the 60-million mark on Instagram. Her celebrity helps (a lot), of course, but the content and quality of her pictures still have to be decent for her to amass such a tremendous following. And one of Kylie's biggest Instagram strengths is her selfie game.
