How to Get Taylor Swift's Beautiful CMA Look

Posted 11/10/11 at 01:33PM by Audrey Fine

Country music stars (and Nicole Kidman) descended upon Nashville last night for the 45th annual Country Music Awards and, while many certainly dazzled, Taylor Swift was the evening's all-around big winner.

Not only did the 21-year-old fan favorite score her second Entertainer of the Year trophy, she wowed all the style critics with her dramatically draped, dove-hued J. Mendel dress and beautiful makeup courtesy of her go-to COVERGIRL artist, Lorrie Turk.

Here's how Turk says she put together the beautiful look that had to work with both the red carpet and performance fashions.

"I started by using COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation, $9.74, for a fresh finish on Taylor's skin. On her eyes I used COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Platinum Pop, $7.49, followed by a very thin line of COVERGIRL LineExact Eyeliner in Very Black, $7.99, and finished her eyes with coats of COVERGIRL LashPerfection Mascara, $7.49, on her lashes.

For Taylor's lips on the red carpet, I used COVERGIRL ShineBlast in Sparkler, $6.49 -- and for the performance we switched it to COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Peony, $6.49.

For a little color and shimmer on her cheeks, I finished by brushing on COVERGIRL TruBlend Minerals Blush in Pure Romance, $3."

There you go. Now you know how to transform into a beautiful, talented young thing in six easy steps! If only it were that easy, right?

How do you think Taylor's CMA look compared with her makeup at last May's Billboard Awards?

    Taylor Swift always looks beautiful no matter how her makeup is done, or what she wears. She is a young woman who carries herself with grace, who is beautiful from the inside out, and who's natural beauty is an exemplary example for my 15 year old daughter! Love her!
