Taylor Goes High Fashion!
What is the first thing you think of when you see metallic blue eyeshadow and glossy red lips??
HOWEVER! That is not what came to my mind when first viewing these new pictures of Taylor Swift. Check out how amazing she looks! Put on a $12,700 Chanel dress or a Prada Swarovsli crystal top, and you can wear whatever color eyeshadow you damn well please!
As always, I am reading a lot of negative responses toward this shoot, but come on people! It’s fashion. She’s going to wipe off the makeup and get back into her tank top soon enough. It’s fun to switch it up a bit, and she looks great!
Get The Look:
If you want to copy Taylor’s look, try toning it down a bit by wearing the red lips by themselves or vice versa with blue eyeshadow; unless of course you plan on draping yourself in couture clothing!
-To get the glossy, ultra rich red lips, try Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect In Red Stockings, or Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar is NSFW!
-For the eyeshadow, try not to bring it up past the crease. Less is more with such bright colors! Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics pigments in Heroic or Cavu Blue are gorgeous!
Not brave enough to rock the metallic blue? Go for a more wearable shade, like a navy, or try lining your upper lid with a metallic blue eye pencil (Urban Decay’s 24/7 Pencil in Electric is perfect!). You’ll still get that pop of color without being too over the top.

COVER WINNER- MAKEUP and HAIR:
Natalie Portman for V Magazine!!!
Natalie Portman’s V Magazine Cover is by far my favorite December 2009 cover!!! She looks somewhat androgynous and super edgy. We are so used to seeing her look pretty and natural, and I think the makeup and hair in this shot make her look incredible! I am loving the faux hawk and extended, sultry cat-eye. I almost didn’t know it was her.

COVER WINNER- MAKEUP:
Kristen Stewart for Interview Magazine
When I saw the cover of November 2009′s Interview magazine, I was mesmerized by the flawless execution of makeup on the cover model. The dramatic eyes and lips break the age-old beauty rule “If your lips are bold, keep your eyes clean,” and I love it. Unfortunately, I read a little closer and discovered that the cover model is actually Twilight’s own, Kristen Stewart. I have not seen Twilight therefore I do not understand the madness over this film or it’s stars, so as of now, I am not Miss Stewart’s biggest fan. However, I will say she looks fabulous on this cover, and I am really feeling the smudgy smoky eye and crimson lips..
COVER WINNER- HAIR:
AnOther Magazine is my choice for best cover hair. Kate Moss looks amazing in John Galiano, and I LOVE her purple and pink teased updo. I swear, she can pull of any look.
My New C-Heads Magazine Spread
I shot this story last summer with photographer, Claire Curran Corbett. The wardrobe was super fun, and it was my first shoot with agency models! Anyways, randomly, today I get an email from Claire today saying that the story has been published in the new issue of C-Heads Magazine! Gotta love it when that happens! I’ve never heard of C-Heads Magazine before, but after checking it out, it’s actually really cool. It’s dedicated to anything and everything creative, from art to music and fashion.
