Question: How can I achieve a Taylor Swift makeup look?
Answer: I took a look at a couple of Taylor Swift’s repeated looks, and good news: channeling her in your makeup routine is very do-able.
Here are some tips for achieving a Taylor Swift makeup look:
One of the most noticeable things about Taylor? Her eyelashes—they’re so long and pretty! If you’re lucky enough to have full lashes, a good volumizing mascara in black should do the trick; try Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara ($32, amazon.com). If you’re like me and your lashes are thin and straight (sad face), falsies might be the way to go.
Another classic element to the Taylor Swift makeup routine is the cherry red lip. Once you find the right red for your skin tone, you’ll find that red lipstick can be a fun way to spice up your everyday makeup look.
To make your red lips the best they can possibly be, start by moisturizing your lips with your favorite balm. Then, apply a layer of foundation or concealer over both of your lips—this will prevent feathering, and it’ll give the lipstick a base. After that, line your lips with any red lip liner, or a nude lip liner if you’d prefer. Lastly, use a lip brush (or any small, soft makeup brush) to apply the lip color, starting from the middle and working your way out. After a quick blot with tissue to remove any excess lipstick, you should be ready to pucker up. “Loving him was red…” and your lips will be, too!
Taylor seems to keep it clean and simple with the rest of her face. She tends to wear pink, peach and beige on her cheeks, and when she isn’t rocking the red lip, she favors glossy, neutral lips (maybe she wears Buxom’s Lip Cream in White Russian). Don’t be afraid to try products with a shimmer, as Taylor seems to be a big fan of using a little sparkle. Give these tips a spin, and people will be calling you Taylor in no time!
