When my blogging buddy Natasja and I discovered that we’re both into Taylor Swift music we immediately knew what theme to pick for our November Two Dashes Of Glam post: a Tay Tay-inspired make-up look!
My Taylor Swift ‘Our Song’ look
I’m a huge fan of Taylor’s recent music and I seriously adore her current style, but I’m also still very much in love with old-school Taylor. Curly haired, Nashville-loving country Taylor. And that is why I picked Our Song as my inspiration for today’s make-up look. It’s one of my favorite old-school Taylor Swift songs and I just love the strong country vibe that it has. Whut? I’m a bit country, ain’t no shame in that! In the music video for Our Song all focus is on Taylor’s eyes – despite the HUGE baby blue poofy dress she’s wearing – and she’s rocking a fierce silver eye look combined with radiant skin and glossy soft pink lips.
On my eyes I used the silver (eyelid) and black (crease) from my Revlon Eclectic Photoready Primer, Shadow + Sparkle Palette as well as a bit of the e.l.f. Socialite Mineral Eyeshadow (outer corner of the eye) and the Inika Lightening Mineral Eye Shadow (inner corner of the eye). My eye shape is obviously very different from Taylor’s – I have big wide eyes while she has sexy cat-like eyes – so I tried kittifying my eyes a bit by extending Socialite a bit further and blending it a bit less high than I normally would. And then I also applied a single set of individual eyelashes on the outer eyelash of each eye to un-Bambi my eyes even further.
On my skin I kept things simple by mixing a bit of the MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation into my moisturizer and applying that all over, topped off with the NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder and a touch of my Urban Decay Indecent Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush. The goal was to recreate Taylor’s INSANELY flawless skin – seriously, what kind of sorcery is this?! – while still keeping it light and fresh. And on my lips I wore the BE Creative Make Up Cherry Licious Lips Intense Gloss layered over the GOSH Nude Velvet Touch Lipstick.
So whaddayathink? Did I manage to capture Taylor’s look?
