Taylor Swift sparkled at the CMA Awards last night with the help of celebrity makeup artist Lorrie Turk. I was inspired by the drop dead gorgeousness of the J. Mendel gown Taylor wore, says Turk.
The gown was a very cool toned dove hue and later in the show she wore a jewel toned sweater to perform in, so the color palette was cooler. Because of the lack of time to make changes, the makeup on the red carpet had to work with the pared down look of the performance. We only had time to make a quick lip color change.
- Lorrie started by using COVERGIRL Natureluxe Silk Foundation for a fresh finish on her skin. On her eyes, COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Platinum Pop followed by a very thin line of COVERGIRL LineExact eyeliner in Very Black and finished her eyes with coats of COVERGIRL Lash Perfection Mascara on her lashes.
- For her lips on the red carpet, COVERGIRL ShineBlast in Sparkler–and for the performance we switched it to COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Peony.
- For a little color and shimmer on her cheeks, she finished by brushing on COVERGIRL TruBlend Minerals Blush in Pure Romance.
