How to Get the Perfect Holiday Beauty Look — As Seen on Taylor Swift

Usually when we see a celebrity on the red carpet, we’re drawn to one facet of their look — whether it be the eye makeup, the lipstick or the hair. But with Taylor Swift‘s look at last night’s Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace in London, no one aspect stood out among the rest. We’re seriously obsessed with it all — the soft glitter shadow, the porcelain skin with a hint of pink blush, the cranberry lipstick and of course, that curly faux bob. It all adds up to the perfect holiday look. 

Now let’s talk about that lipstick.
Taylor has become known for her red lipstick (and with an album and tour named Red, we can’t blame her), but this shade was a welcome change. It’s a dark pink with a hint of red — we’re calling it cranberry. For a simple DIY, we recommend coating your lips with a fuchsia lip liner first, and then dabbing on a classic red lipstick. Blot your lips together to blend the two.

And to get that hair. 
It’s your simple faux bob, but because Taylor has cascading layers around her face, those pieces were left loose and wavy for a more flattering (and more believable) bob. We recommend curling your hair first and then brushing it out for loose retro-inspired waves. Then pull all of the hair back and secure it with an elastic about two inches below the nape of the neck. Tuck the elastic under and separate the hair with your fingertips (while keeping it secured). Pull a few pieces out in front like Taylor’s to soften the look.
