I May Try to Morph into Taylor Swift Using These Tips from Her Makeup Artist
Posted 04/02/12 at 10:57AM by Audrey Fine
Swift's look last night came courtesy of makeup artist Lorrie Turk who tells me that "since she was accepting [her Entertainer of the Year] award from the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, it was important that when she looks at a photo of this moment 25 years from now, the makeup look would stand the test of time."
Here's how Turk made sure it would:
"Her classically-styled dress by Maria Lucia Hohan was neutral in color so we opted for a bright coral lip and a pretty flushed cheek for a pop of color," says Turk.
Face: "I first brushed on COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation, $10, only where needed so Taylor's beautiful complexion would show through. I then brushed on COVERGIRL Instant Cheekbones Contouring Blush in Peach Perfection, $5.49, to add to her natural flush."
Eyes: "I applied the lightest color in the COVERGIRL Exact Eyelights Eyeshadow quad in Vibrant Browns, $7.49, from lashline to brow bone and used the bronze color in the crease to warm up Taylor's eyes and make their blue stand out. I then smudged COVERGIRL Exact Eyelights Eyeliner in Vibrant Pearl, $6.99, a rich black color, along her top lashline and used Radiant Sapphire on the lower lashline. I finished the eyes by brushing on loads of COVERGIRL LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara in Very Black, $7.99, on the upper and lower lashes."
Lips: "Using a lip brush, I applied COVERGIRL Blast Flipstick Lipcolor in Cheeky, $7.99."
