Taylor Swift's signature winged eyeliner look combines sexy and soft with shapes, texture and hue: dark liquid liner and glitter pastel power. If you have hooded eyes you lack an upper eye crease, and liner-heavy looks like Taylor's work wonders to expand your eyes' eye shape and draw attention away from the hood effect. While Asian women often have hood eyes, the shape's not limited to them. Combine your fave light tones with deep liner to copy Taylor's look and create a textured eye look that's perfect for nights out.
Wash your face to remove natural oils before you get your eyeliner on. Then pick your palette: black eyeliner is a must for Taylor's look, and she prefers light lilac hues and definitely sparkles. If purple's not your thing, pick two shimmery feminine hues that complement your skin tone.
Brush the lightest eyeshadow across your lid and brow bone. Hooded eye women need to mix shades to create the illusion of depth from an eyelid; this makes a broad base and gives you lots of Taylor sparkle to start with.
Run the next deepest hue along your lash line, where an eye crease would be. Work along the whole lid. Now you've got depth to give dimension to your eye, and you'll have more when you use the liner to wing out.
Cover the whole upper lash line with liquid liner. Begin in the inside and work in short strokes toward the outside of your eye. When you reach the outer crease, don't stop. Just tilt your line up in an arch and you'll get a little wing just like Taylor. Open your eye and check out the look. If you think the wing's too small, add a bit more length.
Line the bottom third of your eye with the liquid liner. This expands hooded eyes to give them a rounder, fuller shape.
Dust the inner eye corner with a little of your lightest, shimmery hue to really bite Taylor's feminine look.
Coat your lashes with black mascara. Once you've got the basics down, hit up your second eye just like this and you're good to go, girl!
