Taylor Swift Inspired Make-up Tutorial

Taylor Swift Red Carpet Look!

Hey!! One night I was browsing online and this picture came up. I thought it was beautiful so I decided to do a tutorial. Now, she has different skin than I and a different eye shape and color, so of course this look will appear different on me! The flash on my camera does wash out some of the color, so I do not appear as "sun-kissed and golden" as Taylor. Also, I didn't use false lashes like her! BUT the makeup is almost identical in real life...I promise! If you follow these steps you can create a similar face to Taylor's red carpet look. Enjoy!

SO! Taylor is known to wear heavy eye makeup and a bright red lip. She is sporting a warm honey brown smokey eye with thick black liner and prominent lashes. Her face is illuminated and she has a rosy bronze contour on her face. Signature red lips are sported with a berry gloss. 

1. I put MAC's Bare Study Paint Pot ONLY onto my lid. I am using this as a base! Then, I took a MAC 239 brush and applied Stila's "Chloe" Eyeshadow from the It Girl palette all over my lid. Taylor is wearing yellow lids and golden inner corners so I thought this combo would be perfect. 
2. Then I used a pencil brush and put Espresso from Bobbi Brown on my outer corner only. I blended it in circular motions. 
4. I applied NYX jumbo pencil in "Milk" under my brow and in my inner corner. 
3. To define my crease with a warmer color, I used Urban Decay's "Buck" Eyeshadow. I also brought that onto my lower lash line. 
4. For eyeliner, Taylor is wearing a warm brown on her waterline and a signature black thick-winged eyeliner on her upper lash line. I applied NYX pencil in "Brown" on my waterline and Revlon's Colorstay Liquid Liner in black. I did an extremely thick line and dramatic wing. Make sure to bring the liner all the way into your inner corner waterline area!
5. Curl your lashes! Apply a curling and volumizing mascara. I used Maybelline's One by One. 


1. Apply a primer. I used Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. 
2. Taylor has a very flawless face. To achieve this use a full coverage foundation. I applied it with my fingers to melt it into my complexion to seem natural. Then I took a concealer and concealed any problem areas and my dark circles. 
3. Taylor has a very rosy bronze glow. On the hollows of my cheeks I mixed my NYC Color Wheel in "Bronze" with my ELF blush in "Glow" and applied it to the hollows of my cheeks!
4. To give a little more illumination, I dabbed a little bit of Stila's "Lillium" on the apples of my cheeks.
4. Then I took the same NYX pencil that I used as my highlight on my eyes and highlighted my cheekbones lightly! Make sure to blend!!!


This lip is darker in person!
1. Taylor is wearing a bright red lip. I used Clinique's Lipstick in "Angel Red."
2. To give more definition and the sweetheart shape to my upper lip, I lined them with a Stila lipliner. 
3. I then used Sephora's Super Shimmer Lip Gloss in "Bronzed Beauty" to darken it up.
