Get the Look: Taylor Swift at the American Music Awards.

Celebrity makeup artist Lorrie Turk created Taylor Swift's makeup look for last nights American Music Awards.

The American Music Awards Show itself was the inspiration for Taylor's look.  I wanted to reflect the youthful, fun vibe of this event.

With a foundation brush, I smoothed CoverGirl's Natureluxe Silk Foundation onto her skin followed by a dab of concealer on the inner corners of her eyes. I applied the concealer with the tip of my ring finger in a patting motion. CG TruBlend Minerals Blush in Shimmering Sands was used along the cheekbones to add highlight and color.

With a dampened eyeshadow brush, I brushed on COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Tapestry Taupe from her lash line to just above her crease and blended that in an up and outward motion.  On the innermost corners of her eyes, I applied COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Snow blossom with a small damp brush to brighten and highlight her eyes.  I lined just the tops on her lash line with a very thin line using COVERGIRL LineExact Liquid Liner in Very Black. I finished her eyes by applying a couple of coats of COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara in Very Black to her upper and lower lashes.

I applied COVERGIRL ShineBlast Lipgloss in Dazzle directly from the applicator wand and then put it in her purse for any possible touchups later in the evening.

Get the Look: Taylor Swift at the CMA's.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Lorrie Turk created the look for Taylor Swift at this years Country Music Awards.

I was inspired by the drop dead gorgeousness of the J. Mendel gown Taylor wore. 


"The gown was a very cool toned dove hue and later in the show she wore a jewel toned sweater to perform in, so the color palette was cooler.  Because of the lack of time to make changes, the makeup on the red carpet had to work with the pared down look of the performance.  We only had time to make a quick lip color change. 

I started by using COVERGIRL Natureluxe Silk Foundation for a fresh finish on her skin.  On her eyes I used COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Platinum Pop followed by a very thin line of COVERGIRL LineExact eyeliner in Very Black and finished her eyes with coats of COVERGIRL Lash Perfection Mascara on her lashes.
 
For her lips on the red carpet, I used COVERGIRL ShineBlast in Sparkler--and for the performance we switched it to COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Peony.
 
For a little color and shimmer on her cheeks, I finished by brushing on COVERGIRL TruBlend Minerals Blush in Pure Romance."

Get the Look: Taylor Swift at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards.

Taylor Swift's red carpet look for the 2011 Teen Choice Awards was created by makeup artist Lorrie Turk.

 

Lorrie tells us about Taylor's look:

Since this was Teen Choice, held in August in sunny Los Angeles, Taylor and I wanted to go with a summery, youthful look.  To us, that meant color, especially since she had a cream palette for her dress.

To make Taylor's eyes pop, we started by brushing on COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers1-Kit Shadows in Turquoise Tempest #435, which we topped with COVERGIRL Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Eyeliner in Radiant Sapphire #710.  We finished her eyes with COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara in Very Black #500.

For a young and radiant glow, we used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation, accentuated with a peachy blush.

We balanced the bold color we used on Taylor's eyes with a more muted look for her lips. We used COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Rapture #280.

Taylor Swift for COVERGIRL 50th Anniversary.

Taylor Swift, the newest face of COVERGIRL, was made up by Celebrity Makeup Artist Lorrie Turk for the 50th Anniversary of COVERGIRL party.

We decided to go for a fresh, pretty beauty look for Taylor for the People’s Choice Awards and the COVERGIRL 50th Anniversary Party. She opted for a slight departure from her signature bright red lip for more of an orangy-red, which added a pop of color to complement the light color of the dress.

I prepped her face with COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Serum Primer and applied COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Alabaster with a brush and blended with a sponge. You can also apply the foundation by mixing it in your palm and applying directly with your fingers. The foundation gave Taylor a luxurious polished skin finish.

On her eyes, I used COVERGIRL LiquiLineBlast in Black Fire to create the minimal winged liner. We didn’t want to make the eyes too dramatic since we were focusing on a bright lip. I finished the eyes by curling her lashes and applying COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume in Black.

Taylor’s lips were the standout of the look. I first used COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lip Liner in Passion to line her lips and also help the color stay through the night. I then finished the lip by applying COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipstick in Flame.
