MTV VMAs: How to get Taylor Swift’s look
Taylor Swift wanted her red carpet look to be inspired by her new album, Red, so makeup artist Lorrie Turk obliged (and beautifully so!). She gave us tips on how to get her look:

CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation was buffed in with a damp sponge, leaving a dewy even finish. CoverGirl Fresh Complexion Under-Eye Concealer was lightly patted on with a fingertip to brighten up the area under her eyes. Since her eyes and lips were strong, we wanted just a hint of color on her cheeks. I dusted CoverGirl Classic Color Blush in Soft Mink lightly along her cheekbones.
I brushed on Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Champagne from her lash line to the crease, concentrating the color in the inner corners of her eyes for sparkle. In the eye crease and slightly above, I brushed another eyeshadow in Tapestry Taupe, which is a great color to add a bit of warmth to the eyes without adding too much color.
For the defined bold eyeliner, I used CoverGirl LineExact Liquid Liner. Starting at the inner corners of her eyes, I drew outward to the end of the eyes, going from thin to thicker with the liner and flicked up when reaching the end of the eye to create a cat-eye look. On the lower lash line, I used a damp detailer brush dipped in eyeshadow Brown Smolder and brushed it into the lower lash line for a less-defined line on the bottom. I finished the eyes with LashBlast Fusion Mascara.
Using a lip brush, LipPerfection Lipcolor in Hot was applied to her lips for a perfect bold red mouth.
