i'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home.


Every so often, I find myself completely enamored with a celebrity makeup look. This is one of those times. Taylor Swift attended (and won best celebrity fragrance!) the 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards in New York City last week and she looked flawless. Her makeup was truly perfection. She played with colour in a subtle and classy way, blending rust and turquoise together on the eyes and finishing the look off with a pretty peach lip.

The moment I saw Taylor's makeup, I knew that I wanted to take a stab at re-creating it. I started by applying a shimmery champagne colour all over the lid and blending out the sides with a deep blue. I applied Taylor's signature black cat-eye liner and blended out the shadows with a rust coloured shadow. After that, I ran a bright turquoise shade along the lower lash line and applied a coat of mascara to my upper and lower lashes. Then it was more lashes, lashes, lashes! I put on some falsies, used a neutral blush, and finished off the look with a peach lipstick.

How did it turn out? Well, this was my finished product! It's not exactly like Taylor's makeup look, but I definitely was inspired by it! Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out. Plus, it felt nice to get creative and play around with makeup.



What do you think of this makeup look? Do you love Taylor Swift's red carpet makeup as much as I do?

  10. The beauty with makeup is the amount of experimentation you can do with it. I'm usually all about the eyes; I like to play them up the most - lighten them, darken them, play with colour - and make them the feature that stands out the most. I don't use a lot of makeup, but I have a lot of it. Wonderful stuff it is.
