Why you gotta be so mean? *Taylor Swift Inspired Look*

Hi everyone! If you know me personally, you know how much I adore Taylor Swift. Not only is she gorgeous, but she is talented, down to earth and genuine. There aren't many other artists out there quite like her. So naturally, I decided to create a look based off of her makeup worn in her music video for "Mean". It's a lovely, classic look that would look great on mostly everyone!

I didn't just try to recreate her makeup, but I also contoured my face and gave myself "virtual contacts" to resemble her :)


Here are some screen caps from the music video:





Just for fun:

I think I can kind of see a resemblance (I wish)!

MUSIC VIDEO:



FACE:
  • Max Factor Pan Stick in Nude Ivory
  • Revlon Photo Ready Concealer
  • Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Ivory to highlight
  • NYC Loose Translucent Powder
  • Matte Medium Brown eyeshadow to contour nose and cheeks

EYES:
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base
  • Matte grey cream eyeshadow (unknown brand) all over lid
  • Light, shimmery gold on inner corners (BH Cosmetics 120 Eyeshadow Palette, 2nd Edition)
  • Matte warm, medium brown on outer corners ( BH Cosmetics, can be matte or shimmery, it's up to you)
  • Matte black eyeshadow (BH Cosmetics)
  • Matte white eyeshadow on browbone (BH Cosmetics)
  • Wet N Wild Liquid Liner in Black
  • Rimmel Soft Kohl Liner in white
  • Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara in Black
  • Half lashes on outer corners of eyes
EYEBROWS:
  • Use founation or concealer mixed with a bit of a pale yellow or gold shadow to lighten your brows.
  • Fill them in with a light brown or blonde pencil, I used Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel

CHEEKS:
  • Maybelline Mineral Powder Blush in True Peach

LIPS:
  • NYX Round Lipstick in Snow White (aka best red lipstick EVER!)
  • MAC Lipglass in Clear on center of lips for a poutier look


I hope you guys like enjoy this look and that you will try it out! I personally really like it and I have worn it out many times (without the contouring of course). I hope you all had a great weekend! As always, if you have any questions or concerns, just leave me a comment! Thanks guys! <3

  3. I totally see the resemblance (it's in the eyes) and I would REALLY REALLY love to see a tutorial for this look. I was approached to do a pro-photoshoot today and one of the looks is a Taylor Swift one so I'm trying to do lots of research! This is gorgeous also, goes without saying!!

  11. HAHA! I totally do see a resemblance! That is a face she tends to make often.

    I don't care for her music (at least I tell people I don't!) but I respect her as a person. She's poised, genuine, down to earth and very talented - especially given the examples of teen pop stars she's had to work with! I think she's fab and so are you! <3
