What Makes Taylor Swift A Beauty Icon We decode the secret to her tried and tested signature look.

Red—the title of her fifth album, the color she feels when she’s loving “him,” the color of her Keds, and the ink to her signature pout. There’s no doubting why Taylor Swift turns to this popping shade for almost any given occasion—it catches the attention, quick. If you’re a hot blooded Swifty making her way to the Mall of Asia Arena tomorrow, grab her attention by stealing her classic look.

With a fringe like Taylor’s, winged eyes have become her default look. Start by drawing a line as closely to your lashes as possible using a pen eyeliner. The trick is to follow your eye’s natural shape as changing it makes them look smaller. Finish it off with two to three coats of mascara. For the cheeks, get a sweet peachy glow by dusting on blush in rose gold that keeps it light.

Completing the look, first line your lips with a bright red pencil to create shape then move to filling them in with the same color. Blot lip and apply powder, then add another layer to make sure they last all night long.
