Taylor Swift is known for rocking a bold red lip and emphasizing her piercing blue eyes with heavy eyeliner on the red carpet and on stage, but it took her a while to come into her own in the makeup department. No matter how often Tay changed her look in the past, however, there's no doubt she owned every single beauty choice she made.
When Tay first hit the scene, she was pretty daring in her eye makeup selection. We give her credit for taking a risk.
Despite being at an award show, Taylor toned down her makeup and went for the natural, fresh-faced look.
Ah, the beginning of the cat eye! The liner isn't as intense as we're used to seeing now, but you can definitely see the obsession starting.
Taylor rarely wears a smokey eye, but we definitely love how intense it makes her baby blues look.
Again, you can see Taylor's classic retro-glam look taking shape here. Her lipstick is a little darker than usual and her eyes have the cat shape—love!
When Taylor showed up to the American Music Awards with heavy black eyeliner and pin straight hair, everyone took notice. Luckily, her rocker-chic look was put together tastefully and was well received by fans and critics.
There's just something about blue, eh? The frosty blue eyeshadow is not something we're used to seeing on Taylor, but the hair and dress add to the whimsical vibes.
While it's not Taylor's classic red, the bright pink statement lipstick is pretty much amazing.
We LIVE for Taylor's bronzy eyeshadow, glowing cheeks and subtle lipstick.
Taylor combined classic black liner with a daring pop of blue at one of her more recent red carpet appearances. It's obvious that she has come into her own and knows what she likes. Work it, girl!
Here's the Taylor we know and love! Simple, classic and elegant.
