Get the Look: Taylor Swift at the MTV VMA's.

 

Taylor Swift's gorgeous makeup look for this weeks MTV VMA's was created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Lorrie Turk. Look how beautiful she looks wearing all COVERGIRL products. Of course she was rocking her signature red lips.

I am in awe of her eyes and want to copy that look! Read on to see how Lorrie created the look.

Taylor wanted her VMA makeup look to be inspired by her new CD, Red, and by the sophistication of the sleek ivory suit she wore on the red carpet.  We knew that a strong red lip color would be perfect for the evening, but also wanted her eyes to stand out with bold liner.

How face products were applied:  

COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation was buffed in with a damp sponge, leaving a dewy even finish.  COVERGIRL Fresh Complexion Under-Eye Concealer was lightly patted on with a fingertip to brighten up the area under her eyes.  Since her eyes and lips were strong, we wanted just a hint of color on her cheeks.  I dusted COVERGIRL Classic Color Blush in Soft Mink lightly along her cheekbones.

How eye products were applied:

I brushed on COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Champagne from her lash line to the crease, concentrating the color in the inner corners of her eyes for sparkle. In the eye crease and slightly above, I brushed COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Tapestry Taupe, which is a great color to add a bit of warmth to the eyes without adding too much color For the defined bold eyeliner, I used COVERGIRL LineExact Liquid Liner.  Starting at the inner corners of her eyes, I drew outward to the end of the eyes, going from thin to thicker with the liner and flicked up when reaching the end of the eye to create a cat-eye look.  On the lower lash line, I used a damp detailer brush dipped in COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Brown Smolder and brushed it into the lower lash line for a less-defined line on the bottom. I finished the eyes with COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion Mascara.

How lip products were applied:  

Using a lip brush, COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Hot was applied to her lips for a perfect bold red mouth.
