Her milky skin was turned shimmery metallic silver, her brown eyes were a shade of blue and her tresses were styled with a blue-black and fuchsia color.

Kylie Jenner made quite a dramatic transformation for a ‘secret’ photo shoot - and it seems to be a look that she wishes would remain. ‘What I wish I looked like all the time,’ the 17-year-old captioned a teaser image on Saturday that was later deleted from her page, E! News reports.

The photo shows the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s signature inflated lips - which she has claimed is a makeup trick - cracked open as her eyes are fixed ahead. In another image from the set, shared by celebrity makeup artist Joyce Bonelli, it shows the reality star stroking her neck and looking off into the distance. She added the hashtag: ‘secretproject.’

The only image from the forthcoming project that remained on Kylie’s Instagram page shows the darkened teen from a closely cropped angle and was captioned with credits of her glamour squad.

Citing her photographer, makeup artist, hair stylist and the portrait studio, Kylie wrote: ‘@marcelocantuphoto, @joycebonelli, @chrisdylanhair @hubblestudio.’

Though the purpose of the session has not yet been revealed, the futuristic skin paint ignited a firestorm of comment among her social media observers who believed it resembled ‘blackface.’ A Twitter user ?remarked, ‘How is kylie jenner dumb enough to do blackface, post it on IG, with the caption “what i wish i looked like all the time.”‘

‘How do you not see the blatant racism associated with this photo,’ an Instagram fan questioned.  Kylie then defended her pictures, laughing off the reaction. ‘so just got the time to head on social media lol,’ she wrote. ‘The photographer used a black light & neon lights for those photos.

‘Yes, In another world I wish I could have pink hair & blue eyes & covered in sparkles. But in this world I’m happy w the way God created me. Happy Easter everybody.’
