The singer debuted a smoldering dark eye look that amped up her va-va voom factor! We found out how to recreate it straight from her makeup artist–Tips below!
Taylor Swift, 23, looked more beautiful than ever in dramatic eyes and soft peach lips. “Taylor wanted her knockout dress to be the inspiration for her AMA red carpet look,” says makeup artist Lorrie Turk who created Taylor’s look. “She wanted a high-impact look, and we needed one that could also be easily altered to go into her performance look.”
Lorrie lightly buffed COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation onto her face with a synthetic foundation brush and powdered only through the center to leave a nice dewy finish on her skin. She then lightly brushed on TruBlend Minerals Blush in True Romance for some soft color and shimmer.
She then dabbed on (using her fingertip) COVERGIRL Intense Shadow Blast in Brown Bling as a base. Next, she brushed on (with an eyeshadow brush) Eye Enhancers 1-kit shadow in Brown Smolder all over the lid, from the lash line to just beneath her brow bone and her lower lash line. Using Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire, Lorrie then lined her upper and lower lash line heavily, blending up and out to eliminate hard lines, leaving her eyes soft and smoky. She finished with several coats of (New!) LashBlast Clump Crusher mascara in Very Black and used NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Grenache, directly from the tube, on Taylor’s lips.
