LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Taylor Swift always looks radiant on the red carpet, but she had an extra special reason to shine at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards… she got to meet the First Lady!
Here’s what went into creating her look and how you can achieve it too.
WHO: Makeup artist, Lorrie Turk
INSPIRATION: “Taylor and I decided that her look should be truly timeless, since she was accepting an award from first lady 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. 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.
GET THE LOOK: I first brushed on COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation only where needed so that Taylor’s beautiful complexion would show through. I then brushed on COVERGIRL Instant Cheekbones Contouring Blush in Peach Perfection to add to her natural flush.
I applied the lightest color in the COVERGIRL Exact Eyelights Eyeshadow quad in Vibrant Browns from lash line to brow bone and used the bronze color in the crease to warm up Taylor’s eyes and make their blue stand out.
I smudged Exact Eyelights Eyeliner in Vibrant Pearl, a rich black color, along her top lash line, and used Radiant Sapphire on the lower lash line. I finished the eyes by brushing on loads of COVERGIRL LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara in Very Black on the upper and lower lashes.
Using a lip brush, I applied COVERGIRL Blast Flipstick Lipcolor in Cheeky.”
