Cover MakeUp: Taylor Swift and American Vouge

Taylor’s look was created with all Cover Girl makeup, which is from the USA. I have some great alternatives and a few extras for you all to recreate this fabulous and effortless look

Always start with a great moisturiser. Pick one that’s right for your skin. I’d personally go with Clinque Moisture Surge but pick what’s right for you. If you’ve got oily skin or your make up tends to stray apply a primer. My recommendation is the original GOSH primer.

Step 1)
Take Rimmel London’s Match Perfection Foundation in your shade and apply it all over your face. I’d use a Real Techniques Buffing brush for an good application.

Step 2)
Take Rimmel London’s Match Perfection Concealer and use that to cover up any under eye circles. Don’t use this for any blemishes, but if you do have blemishes I’d defiantly choose Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer to cover them up.

Step 3)
Set your makeup with a powder. My suggestion is Rimmel London’s Clear Complexion Pressed Powder in translucent but any translucent powder (loose or pressed) will work. Any powder brush would work but I’d go with a Real Techniques powder brush, because it’s great quality and affordable.

Step 4)
If your cool with having no colour on your lids, don’t put any colour on them but if you want a bit of colour take a MAC paint pot in either Groundwork or Nubile for a wash of colour.

Step 5)
Grab a liquid liner in a real black shade. I’d go with 17 liquid liner in black because I like the brush but if you prefer felt tip liners, try MUA felt liner in black. Liner you upper lash line with a reasonably thick line. For the lower lash liner I’d use a pencil or kohl liner, and my choice would be Sleek’s twist up pencil in midnight. Smudge that along the lower lash liner for that added but of dram for the he’s.

Step 6)
To finish off those eyes, take a volume sing mascara. I’d go for Max Factor False Lash Effect in the original formula. Curl your lashes and ‘lash out’. Apply a few coats to your lashes to make them perfect.

Step 7)
For cheeks take a light peach blush with little to no shimmer. I’d pick No 7 at boots in Peach Silk, on a Real Techniques blush brush and a light hand.

Step 8)
Final step! Grab a lip stain, I’d go with royal plum for Max Factor for a great look on the lips. there we go! You’ve got Taylor’s look.
