Taylor Swift inspired prom makeup

Hello everybody! :D

First of all I want to say welcome to my new subscribers! :) And welcome back all you old ones! ;)

As I mentioned the other day (yesterday even, I think) I was going to do a red carpet-style prom look inspired by Taylor Swift. And, well, here it is! :D
I don't like Taylor's music that much but her makeup looks are always very pretty. Her signature seems to be a smokey cat eye and almost always some hint of gold. And those features are perfect for a prom makeup look!

So here's the look:

Haha, I know I don't resemble Taylor Swift even the slightest but I hope you get the idea of the look anyway. :) A soft raspberry red lipstick will be great with this look! (This pic is not edited so the colors are a bit strange...)

Step 1. Prime your eyes with an eyelid primer. I used M.A.C. Studio Finish Concealer this time and guess what? The makeup stayed all day without creasing! :) 

Step 2. Apply a black eyeliner pencil as a base in the outer corner of your eye.

Step 3. Smudge it out using your finger or a blending brush. 

Step 4. Apply Twilight by Makeup Geek above your crease and blend it out. 

Step 5. I didn't want this to be a terribly dark smokey eye so I used a dark gray eyeshadow on top of the eyeliner pencil rather than a black one. The shadow I used was Stealth by Makeup Geek. 

Step 6. On the inner part of your eyelid, apply a matte white. Also apply it on your browbone. Then, in the innermost corner of your eye, apply a shimmery nude color. I used Bling by Makeup Geek. 

Step 7. Okay, so here's a lot of things at once. First, apply a black gel liner to the upper lashline and waterline. Smudge it out. Second, apply a white eyeliner to the waterline. And at last, apply a soft golden eyeshadow to your lower lashline and in the inner corner of your eye. I used Bleached blonde by Makeup Geek, since it is golden but not too strong.

Step 8. Fill in your eyebrows with a soft brown. Pop on some mascara and finish the look by applying a pair of falsies. The ones I've used are #747S by Red Cherry (at least I think it is them... I'm not sure though, since I tend to mix up their packaging...) 

Step 9. Go to your prom and have a lot of fun! :D 


So that was my Taylor Swift inspired red-carpet-style prom look! :) I hope you try it out! If anyone decides to wear any of my looks for prom, please, please, please send me some pictures! ;)

I have no idea what the next look will be so that will have to be a surprise. :) 

Have a nice day everyone!
