Never goes out of style: how to repeat Taylor Swift's signature makeup
The world-famous American singer Taylor Swift has become Time magazine's Person of the Year, so now she's getting even more attention than usual. Although it seemed like much more? She is the most listened-to artist on various music platforms, her tour this year brought her more than $1 billion, and her fans adore her for her simplicity and sincerity. Speaking of Taylor Swift, the image of a sophisticated blonde with red lips and black arrows immediately comes to mind - a kind of pin-up girl from vintage American posters.
Indeed, the singer's makeup hasn't changed globally for many years. She stays true to her own style, which is why the beauty world has even coined the term Taylor Swift's signature makeup. We will tell you about it in the OBOZ.UA article.
Taylor Swift makeup is also known as Hollywood makeup. It is a contrasting combination of red and black, that is, a tandem of bright red lips and clear black arrows. This combination will never get bored or go out of style - it's a timeless classic, ladies and gentlemen.
Wherever the singer is - on the stage of her big concert, on the red carpet, at a private party, basketball game, walking in the park or in the store - you will always see her with rich red lips. Swift learned how to apply lipstick correctly from her celebrity makeup artists.
"They apply red lipstick, then blot it with a napkin, then apply powder to the napkin and kind of press it to the lips. This makes the lipstick last much longer," the artist shared her secret technique in an interview.
But the celebrity has a rather funny story to tell about black arrows. Once she flew to Japan and found out that she had forgotten all her makeup. Then Swift decided to put on eyeliner... with a felt-tip pen! The singer urges her fans to never follow her example and repeat this fraud. However, it was from that moment on that Taylor fell in love with black arrows, so she made them her trademark. Now, however, she uses liquid liners instead of stationery. She says it's much more convenient than an eyeliner.
"First, I draw the outer corner: I follow the curve of the lower lash line and draw it as if it were a continuation of it. Then I draw along the upper eyelid and connect it with an arrow. Voila! A perfect cat eye in a couple of minutes," the star shared another of her beauty life hacks.
Of course, red lipstick and black eyeliner are not the only elements Taylor Swift uses in her signature makeup. In fact, her makeup bag contains a minimal set of products. To begin with, the singer always moisturizes her skin with a cream, and often uses a night cream. She says she likes its texture better. It's worth noting that the artist hasn't always taken care of moisturizing her face. She used to not only not use care products, but might not even wash off her makeup after a concert or event - she went to bed with makeup on. This is incredibly harmful to the skin, so now Swift is trying to control herself.
After the cream, the singer applies foundation, followed by powder. For Swift, it is important to create a fresh and flawless texture. She also said that she "can't live without natural brown eyeshadow". Warm caramel and bronze shades are favorites in the artist's palette. In addition, she likes to experiment with light blue and pink eyeshadows.
The singer does not forget about highlighter. Shimmer and shine are definitely important for stars. Taylor applies highlighter as a standard on the cheekbones, tip of the nose, and under the eyebrows. She also said: "I like to apply silvery, light colors on the inside of the eye and kind of blend them on the outside of the eye."
The singer also said in an interview that she loves eyelash curlers. She curls both her upper and lower lashes with them.
Online, many makeup artists and bloggers are trying to replicate the country-pop legend's signature makeup. Given that Swift has become the Person of the Year and has reached many new heights, we can assume that in the coming seasons, makeup in her style will be very popular.
Earlier, OBOZ.UA also wrote that the famous Ukrainian singer and composer Iryna Bilyk stunned her fans with her appearance. In particular, thanks to the makeup that the 53-year-old artist had done by the star makeup artist-blogger Yegor Andryushin. He managed to effectively emphasize the celebrity's eyes and refresh her image, according to Internet users.
