Glam Slam: Taylor Swift's Edgy Glam

I did a double take when I saw Taylor swift at the Billboard Music Awards.

She traded in her signature understated girly style for a vibrant red lacey peek-a-boo Elie Saab gown, which she paired with straight hair and bold eye makeup. So glamorous!

Here is how you can go for Taylor’s sleek beauty look:

WHO: Makeup Artist Lorrie Turk

INSPIRATION: “Taylor was being honored with Billboard’s Woman of the Year Award. With this in mind, Taylor wanted her look to be timeless yet still a little edgy and strong.”

HOW TO:
“COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation was lightly applied using a damp sponge which ensures a light dewy application. I used a small concealer brush to sweep on a bit of COVERGIRL Fresh Complexion Under Eye Concealer to lighten up the under eye area,” Lorrie says, “followed with COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush lightly brushed along Taylor’s cheek bones to give just a touch of color and definition.

With an eye shadow brush, I applied the cranberry color from COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadow in Blossoms all over the lid from lash line to just above the crease and out past the outer corner of the eye and below her lower lash line as well. I then lined her eyes with COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire along the upper lash line and then smudged it a bit with a cotton bud. I did this just a touch on the lower lash line as well. I finished her eyes with 2-3 coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Mascara on both the upper and lower lashes.

Because we went with a stronger eye look, Taylor chose to go with her lips fairly understated and neutral, so I added only a bit of sheer color and shine with COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Peony over her lips with a lip brush.”
