Wow! This is a whole new side of Taylor! The bare-faced beauty appears on the November 24 cover of ‘Time’ magazine. She looks stripped down and raw.
Taylor Swift looks amazing on the cover of Time. It actually looks like she took her makeup off before the photo was taken, as she appears to have traces of eye makeup and lipstick, but bare skin. See what she said about being compared to other women in her interview below.
Taylor Swift On ‘Time’ Magazine — Bare Faced Beauty: See Her No Makeup Look
We really love this shot of Taylor — it feels very real and exposed. Taylor’s hair is still styled, and she still has traces of eyeliner and lipstick, but she looks fresh-faced — the opposite of a photoshopped cover.
Taylor Swift On Body Scrutiny
Taylor spoke to Time about the high standards put on females and especially female celebrities:
“I refuse to buy into these comparisons, because you don’t see it happening to men. All you seem to see is ‘Which New Mother Is Sexier?’ ‘Who’s the Hotter Mama?’ ‘Who’s Got The Better Booty?’ If we continue to show young girls that they are being compared to other girls, we’re doing ourselves a huge disservice as a society. I surround myself with smart, beautiful, passionate, driven, ambitious women.
Other women who are killing it should motivate you, thrill you, challenge you and inspire you rather than threaten you and make you feel like you’re immediately being compared to them. The only thing I compare myself to is me, two years ago, or me one year ago. How does “1989” measure up to “Red”, sales-wise? You just try to lead by example, and you hope, someday, that if we talk about feminism enough, maybe we’ll start to actually see it make a difference in the way young girls perceive themselves and each other.”
