Taylor Swift just continues to surprise us with her amazing talent, sweet humbleness and gorgeous, evolving look. She just won her second consecutive Entertainer of the Year Award at the 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony and she was the only girl in an all male category. It’s basically impossible to dislike Taylor (ahem, Kanye). She attended the ceremony solo after inviting a New Jersey teenage cancer victim who was hospitalized over the weekend.
Swift tweeted some well-wishes to her date, writing, “Just talked to Kevin McGuire … He’s not well enough to join me at the ACMs. Please keep him in your thoughts. I’ll make it up to you, Kevin!” She’s just too adorable for words. She is always so surprised whenever she wins and is so modest when it comes to acknowledging herself as a truly talented artist.
Aside from Taylor being such a classy and gifted young woman, she is also strikingly beautiful and knows how to work her classic angelic look. Taylor Swift’s J Mendel gown was both sleek and stunning. The brilliant white shade complemented by the metallic piping and cutouts was a red carpet winner and upped her sexy factor. She kept her Lorraine Schwartz jewelry simple so as to point attention to her gorgeous dress and the result was a picture of perfection.
Her makeup for the event was pretty different than her typical barely there natural makeup look. This time Swift stunned the crowd with her brown smoky eyes and pale pink lips, which made her look sexy and womanly as opposed to her usual youthful look. Her sultry makeup was the perfect accessory to her white J Mendel gown. By flaunting smoky brown eyes, pale pink lips and luminous skin, she really gave everyone even more reason to be obsessed with her.
Recreate Taylor Swift’s Sexy CMT Awards Pale Pink Lip and Brown Smoky Eye Look:
Swift’s face is easy to recreate with the right shades. She kept her eyes the focal point of her face for the CMT Awards. Urban Decay’s Naked Palette comes with the perfect collection of pink, gold, bronze and gray tones that work well with any skin color. Swift lined her eyes with brown shadow and applied the same tone to her lids. Make sure to blend well and add a darker shade at the outer corner of the lids for contrast.
One of Taylor Swift’s best features is her flawless skin. The 22-year-old beauty showed off a luminous face at the 2012 AMC Awards. Recreate this perfected look in three easy steps. First, begin with primer, like Smashbox Camera Ready Primer. Then use a light smoothing foundation such as Estee Lauder’s Invisible Makeup. Finally, finish your look with luminizer on the apples of your cheeks. Try NARS’ Orgasm Luminizer to replicate Taylor Swift’s flattering, pink hue. To get her luminous matte skin, finish off by spraying Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup Finish. This will prevent your makeup from looking too greasy or oily after applying the foundation. The No More Shine Makeup Setting Spray gives you a perfect matte finish without ever making color look dull or having to retouch foundation or shadow. Leave your blotting papers and powder at home, the No More Shine Makeup Finish controls oil while keeping your makeup in place for 16 hours! Celebrities use Skindinavia finishing spray to ensure their makeup holds up all night through big events such as the CMT awards. Because really, when you’re so busy accepting awards all night like Taylor Swift, you really don’t have the time for touchups throughout the night.
Copy her pale pink lips by lining them with a neutral pencil like Bare Escentuals Lip Liner in neutral. Top this off with a pale pink lipstick. Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Beige is a great option. Using a neutral lipstick like pale pink will really put more emphasis on the eyes and works best with a brown smoky eye.
Get Taylor’s Sexy Loose Waves at the CMT Awards
Taylor Swift’s loose waves added a causal sexiness to her style and the bangs added an extra oomph to her hairstyle. Use a large-barreled iron to get voluminous curls as opposed to tiny ringlets. Work in smaller sections by clipping up the top half of your hair first and working from underneath. Spray the hair with movable holding spray to keep your waves in place all night.
