Kendall Jenner may be a legit runway model now, but it is Kylie Jenner who is becoming somewhat of an alternative style icon. We saw a glimpse of the 17-year-old's intense transformation two years back, when she launched a Tumblr blog cleverly titled "Kalifornia Klasss."

The digital moodboard seems to still be going strong, because Jenner posts images quite often, offering the same high-fashion editorials, product approvals, and style muses, peppered with photos of her selfie-obsessed fam.

Speaking of selfies, she tells a reader that lighting is key when it comes to producing the perfect one. She also unearths the inner-workings of her makeup bag: mascara, eyeliner, matte lipstick, bronzer. There you have it.
