How to Get Taylor Swift's Beautiful CMA Look
Posted 11/10/11 at 01:33PM by Audrey Fine
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?
