OFFSTAGE: Glamour Reveals Taylor Swift’s Smoky Eye Secret

Published on March 22, 2013 by CMT News

Taylor Swift

Oh, thanks, Glamour. I was just wondering how in the world Taylor
Swift
can wear such dark eye makeup without looking trashy, and there you were with the answer. So I expect my next smoky-eye
look to be just as fabulous as hers now that I know the secret. “Look at Taylor Swift’s smoky eyes. See how the bronze shadow
softens the black liner,” the magazine story says. They go on to explain that what they see her doing is using black liner
to sex up the shape of her eyes, but then — and this is where most women go very, very wrong — she surrounds that liner
with a softer shade or a metallic one — as opposed to more black. The result is smokiness, without the slightest trace of
“raccoon eyes.” But when Swift’s not after quite such a smoldering look, say for her happy, free, confused and lonely in the
best way video for “22,” she does a great job at low-key make-up, too.
I don’t know about you, but I think Swift looks good both ways. 

P.S. for Swiftaholic fashionistas: You can get
the shirt she’s wearing in the “22″ video from a
French-based retailer.
