WATCH: How to Recreate Taylor Swift’s Met Gala Look This Halloween

Posted on

Want to dress as Taylor Swift this Halloween? Forget about the bright red lips and perfectly-coiffed waves of Tay’s past and embrace her edgy style phase with the vampy lip and messy texture that she rocked at the 2016 Met Gala. Grab your darkest lipstick and the brightest blonde wig you can find, and let Sephora Pro Makeup Artist Karoline Karakeosian show you how to get the look in the “How It’s Done” video above.

After getting your blonde bob into place, and setting a base on your skin, use a deep purple eyeliner to line your top and bottom lash lines. Then, with a slanted eyeliner brush, smudge the lines to create a slightly smoky effect, and apply mascara to make your eyes pop even more.

Next, lightly contour your cheekbones by applying a few swipes of bronzer in an upward diagonal motion from the apples of your cheeks to your hairline.

Finally, to create her vampy lip, line and fill in your lips using a dark burgundy lip liner pencil. Finish the look with a matching lipstick, applying it with a lip brush to create the cleanest lines possible.

Apply a little mousse to your bob for texture and you’re ready to go shake it off.
