Taylor swift blank space makeup look


It's been a little while since I've done a celeb inspired makeup look, so today's the day I recreate a look from Taylor Swift. Her newest album 1989 has really flown off the shelves and her new style of songs have really reached out to a lot of people. To see what makeup I used, keep reading. To see what the makeup looks like on me, head of to my Instagram. I really hope you like the look I've created which was inspired by the below photo. So let's get started. 

TS is well known for her signature winged liner and red lip, classic look, but there's been a lot of stir from the Blank Space music video and the scene with the apple so I thought I would give this look a try.

Flawless Skin:
First things first, let's tackle that skin. I first go in with my regular face priming duo, the Benefit Porefessional and the Loreal Lumi Magique Base. Smoothed and illuminated, it's time for some coverage with extra glow so of course, it has to be the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, which has the perfect amount of each. Then to conceal any imperfections it's onto my trusted NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer = favourite concealer EVER! 
For extra highlight the Sleek Precious Metals Palette is my current go to for that beautiful highlight and the two shades on the left, mixed together make a perfect shade for my skin tone with maximum glow. To set everything I go in with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light and then Luminous Flush from the Blush Palette to add some colour into those cheeks. But we can't forget about the contoured cheeks and I have just the perfect product. NYX Taupe Blush gives the most natural shadow effect.

Smokey Eye: 
1. I always apply a base or primer to the lids whenever there's eyeshadow involved.
2. I then go in with my transition shade to make it easier to pull everything together at the end. 
3. I start by using the Eyeko Fat Stick Crayon in Smoke along the top lashline and also on the outer corner and blend using a stiff brush. Layer this crayon on until it's as dark as you like. You can also add a small amount of black into the corner for more depth. 
4. Add a winged liner to the eye but keep the wing on the outer corner quite hazy and blend into the outer corner so it just blends together. The liner doesn't need to be perfect and precise so don't worry. 5. Finish off with Smoke on the lower lashline with some black shadow on the outer corner of the lower lashes if you want to deepen it up and smoke it out even more. Always remember to go back in with that original transition shade to blend out the edges of the look so there's no harsh lines and it blends seamlessly into a gradient. Keep blending until you are happy with the look you have. The secret is to just blend blend blend. 
6. Add black kohl eyeliner to the top and bottom water lines with lots of mascara to get some nice voluminous lashes. They're quite dramatic in this music video so you can also apply false lashes on if you need to. 
7. As for the eyelid and inner corner, it needs to be kept quite light so I used Cream and Nude from the Lorac Pro Palette to do that and layered on when needed.
8. Smokey eye isn't complete without groomed brows

The Red Lip:
I'm more of a matte red lip kind of girl but from the music video it looks slightly glossy on Taylor so I started by applying the Maybelline Color Drama Crayon in Red Essential to provide a matte base, and I then applied Maxfactor Lipstick in Cherry to give that more glossy look. But because we have the matte shade underneath, it's going to increase the wear time as we've used it like a lip liner, you could always just use a red lip liner instead but I prefer the Color Dramas. 

That's it. It's as easy as that. Just remember: Use think light layers for the complexion and build only where needed. Just keep blending those eyeshadows. Finally, the trick is to get a kind wearing lip liner/crayon on the lips first and then apply the slightly creamy formula over the top. You can also blot and reapply again if you feel you need it. 

Again, head over to my Instagram to see what the makeup looks like on me and hope you enjoyed this celeb inspired makeup look.
