How I'm Snagging Taylor Swift's Beautiful "Billboard Awards" Look

Posted 05/23/11 at 11:50AM by Audrey Fine

OK, maybe I have a couple (ok, a lot) of years on her but Taylor Swift's makeup at last night's Billboard Awards was so beautiful that I just had to go to the source and find out how they did it -- especially those eyes!

Not only was her face beyond gorgeous but she looked stunning in a sequined Elie Saab dress and ended up having a pretty good night -- Joe/Jake's ex went home with both "Album Artist of the Year" and "Country Artist of the Year" awards. Not too shabby.

But enough about her hardware -- let's get down to how we can copy The CoverGirl spokesmodel's magnificent makeup look with the how-to from the woman responsible for the look, Lorrie Turk. She says that "The pastel colors we used to frame Taylor's eyes were really a reflection of the gorgeous palette in the beading of her gown."

Step 1: "I started her eyes by brushing on COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in French Vanilla, $3 from her lash line to the crease and in the inner corners of her eyes. From the crease to just below the brow bone, I used Knock Out Pink, which really sets off her blue eyes. I used a little COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire, $7.49, to line the upper lash line and finished the eyes with COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara, $6.49."

Step 2: "To perfect Taylor's already smooth complexion, I used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation, $10 and a touch of COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Plumberry Glow, $3, on her cheeks."

Step 3: "To finish Taylor's Billboard Awards look, I used COVERGIRL LipPerfection in Tempt, $5. It's a gorgeous vibrant pink -- perfect for spring and summer."

Ta-da! There you have it, straight from the source. I'm loooving the eyes. What about you? Oh, and, for the record, here's a little about why I hope Taylor's setting an example for other young stars.
And the survey says...
