LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Taylor Swift took home the coveted Entertainer of the Year Award at the Country Music Association Awards last week and looked absolutely gorgeous doing it!
She’s naturally stunning for sure, but Taylor, who is the face of COVERGIRL’s NatureLuxe cosmetics line, did get a little help enhancing her natural beauty from celebrity makeup artist Lorrie Turk.
“I was inspired by the drop dead gorgeousness of the J. Mendel gown Taylor wore, " Lorrie reveals.
“The gown was a very cool toned dove hue and later in the show, she wore a jewel-toned sweater to perform in, so the color palette was cooler. Because of the lack of time to make changes, the makeup on the red carpet had to work with the pared down look of the performance. We only had time to make a quick lip color change,” she added.
Here Lorrie shares her step-by-step guide for how you can get Taylor’s CMA Awards look:
“I started by using COVERGIRL Natureluxe Silk Foundation for a fresh finish on her skin.
On her eyes, I used COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Platinum Pop followed by a very thin line of COVERGIRL LineExact eyeliner in Very Black and finished her eyes with coats of COVERGIRL Lash Perfection Mascara on her lashes.
For her lips on the red carpet, I used COVERGIRL ShineBlast in Sparkler — and for the performance, we switched it to COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Peony.
For a little color and shimmer on her cheeks, I finished by brushing on COVERGIRL TruBlend Minerals Blush in Pure Romance.”
