MET Ball 2011: Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s makeup was done by Lorrie Turk. “To enhance Taylor’s stunning J. Mendel couture gown, we went with a dramatic eye, strong lip and perfect dewy skin.

First, I started on her eyes, brushing on COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Golden Sunrise from the lash line to the crease. Then, I applied Brown Smolder from her crease to just below her brow, which gives a very natural, yet dramatic look to the eye. Also, I used Snow Blossom in the inner corner of her eyes to add highlight. I lined the top of her eyes with COVERGIRL LiquiLine Blast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze and smudged it up a bit, and to add more depth just at the lash line, I followed with COVERGIRL LineExact Liquid Liner in Very Black. On the bottom lash line, I used COVERGIRL LiquiLine Blast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze and followed with a little of the Brown Smolder Shadow to smoke it up a bit. To finish the eyes, I used several coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara in Very Black for a super glamorous look.

To perfect her beautiful skin, I used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation. It leaves her skin dewy, but not shiny–I love the finish of this foundation. To hide any shadows underneath her eyes, I patted on COVERGIRL TRUconceal Concealer. I finished her skin by lightly brushing on COVERGIRL TRUblend Pressed Powder.
On Taylor’s cheeks, I used COVERGIRL TRUblend Minerals Blush in Shimmering Sands. It gives a shimmery flush of color—very pretty.

For dramatic and long lasting lip color, I used COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Tempt — this is such a beautiful wine color.”
