Get The Look: Taylor Swift 2012 Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift CoverGirl Grammys

Congratulations to Taylor Swift who won big yesterday at the 2012 Grammy Awards! Taylor took home TWO Grammys last night, one for “Best Country Song” and the other for “Best Country Solo Performance”. She rocked a stunning Zuhair Murad dress on the red carpet with makeup by COVERGIRL.

Taylor Swift’s makeup artist Lorrie Turk spilled the details on how you could achieve Taylor’s look:

The Dress
Taylor selected a sublime Zuhair Murad gown to wear to the Grammys, and that was the inspiration for the look. The gown had gorgeous hand beading and detailing, and because of that Taylor decided to keep it clean and simple with her makeup and hair.

The Face
Taylor’s complexion is absolutely gorgeous and I really wanted it to show through– there is no reason to mask it with a heavy foundation. COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation was applied very sparingly with a damp sponge, followed with a touch of COVERGIRL TruBlend Minerals Blush in Shimmering Sands giving a natural flush and glow to her skin.

The Eyes
Taylor’s eye makeup started with a sweep of COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Brown Bling from lash line to just above the crease and then I took it out a bit using my finger. Taylor loves this color, as it is the perfect natural shadow color– not too grey or orange. It’s really perfect. We followed with COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers in Tapestry Taupe in the crease and Golden Sunset on the lid. I ran COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze along the top and bottom lash line and smudged it a bit with a cotton bud. For the lashes, I used COVERGIRL LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara. It really makes her blue eyes stand out.

The Lips
Taylor wanted her lips to be very natural, so I applied COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Enthrall to her lips with my fingertip to push the color in — leaving a nice stain on her lips.
