What's the first thing you do when you pop in your favorite Taylor Swift CD? Grab a hairbrush, strike a pose in front of the mirror and sing at the top of your lungs, most likely. You've curled your hair into Taylor Swift-esque ringlets, donned a flowing bohemian dress and strapped on your cowboy boots. But there's something missing. Oh yes. The angel eyes! Somehow the whole picture just isn't perfect until you trace those babies with plenty of eyeliner. But watch out -- someone might mistake you for her if you forget to change before hitting the club tonight!
Smear on a healthy foundation of light eyeshadow. Start at the bottom edge of your lids and work up to your brow bone.
Dab the purplish eyeshadow into the crease of your eye. As you work your way from the inside out, drag the brush upward just a little, almost until you reach the edge of your eyebrow hairs.
Trace your lower lashes with eyeliner. The trick here is to go light, layering it just at the roots of your bottom lashes. The idea is to look like an angel, not Joan Jett.
Line your upper lashes with a bit more eyeliner than you used on the bottom. Start out thin near the inside of your eye, and get gradually thicker as you near the outside. When you hit the corner of your eye, drag the liner outward to follow the shape of the crease eyeshadow for those enviable kitty cat eyes.
Coat your upper and lower lashes with pitch black mascara. Taylor Swift tells "Seventeen" magazine that the black mascara -- not the liner -- adds all the drama.
Add a little piece of heaven to the finishing touches with the shimmery white eyeshadow. Taaz.com recommends tracing the edges around your tear ducts with this little bit of angel dust to make your eyes really stand out. Time to break out the "Hallelujah" chorus -- you've now earned your wings!
Taylor Swift tells "Seventeen" magazine that it's best to use waterproof mascara -- perhaps it's so she's prepared for tears in the event that she spontaneously receives yet another award. But take her word for it -- the stuff sticks like glue. Just be sure to remove it using an eye makeup remover and soft cotton pad, not water and your fingernails, so you don't damage your eyelashes.
