From her perfect fashion choices, to her hair and makeup, Taylor Swift makes looking gorgeous on the red carpet effortless, and this weekend’s Grammys were no exception. The face of COVERGIRL, who took home Best Solo Country Performance and Best Country Song, looked fresh and radiant. Her makeup artist, Lorrie Turk, breaks down how you too can get the look:
“Taylor selected a sublime Zuhair Murad gown to wear to the Grammys, and that was the inspiration for the look,” Lorrie says. “The gown had gorgeous hand beading and detailing and, because of that, Taylor decided to keep it clean and simple with her makeup and hair.”
“Taylor’s complexion is absolutely gorgeous and I really wanted it to show through---there is no reason to mask it with a heavy foundation. COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation was applied very sparingly with a damp sponge, followed with a touch of COVERGIRL TRUblend Minerals Blush in Shimmering Sands giving a natural flush and glow to her skin.
Taylor’s eye makeup started with a sweep of COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Brown Bling from lash line to just above the crease, and then I took it out a bit using my finger. Taylor loves this color, as it is the perfect natural shadow color--not too grey or orange. It’s really perfect. We followed with COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers in Tapestry Taupe in the crease and Golden Sunset on the lid. I ran COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze along the top and bottom lash line and smudged it a bit with a cotton bud. For the lashes, I used COVERGIRL LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara. It really makes her blue eyes stand out.
Taylor wanted her lips to be very natural, so I applied COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Enthrall to her lips with my fingertip to push the color in — leaving a nice stain on her lips.”
