Get the Look: Taylor Swift in "Bad Blood" Music Video
By: Jillian Garner Jacobs
Taylor Swift looks fierce in the music video for her latest hit single, “Bad Blood,” from her slick locks to her sexy leather lingerie.
Swift’s makeup, in particular, is all about the heavily smoked-out eyes, angular shapes, and a feminine pout.
In the first photo, her eyes are smoked out with a black shadow that also lines her lower lash line; the edges of her shadow are diffused, unlike some of her more angular eye looks. Her skin is dewey and fresh, and her lips look plump with a pretty, nude gloss.
For her next look, a dark shadow comes to a sharp wing, and Swift rocks her famous red pout. Her lips are lined sharply to give them a more dramatic and precise affect. With that same harsh wing, Swift also rocks what seems like no lip color but al natural. Her skin is flawless and matte, but not overdone; the focus for these looks is most certainly on the eyes.
In white fur, Swift sports a more wearable cut crease. This is an eye makeup technique in which the crease of the eye is sharply defined with a dark or contrasting color to the shade on the lid . The crease then looks more defined, or “cut.”
In the final scene of the video, her bold, red lips match her sharp, winged liner, which outlines both eyes entirely with a dramatic, cat eye shape. When Swift is in the car, she has a smokey shadow with double-winged liner on her eyes, long and full lashes and contoured cheeks.
