Taylor Swift Red Lip Tutorial

Recreate Taylor Swift’s red glitter lip with my tutorial!

Beauty blogger Mash Elle re-creates Taylor Swift's infamous red glitter lip | from the music video "I Don't Wanna Live Forever". This step by step tutorial will help you achieve the perfect red lip!

Hello beautiful girls! Last week I watched Taylor Swift and Zayn’s new music video “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” and I was mesmerized by Taylor’s lips the entire time. While her trademark is red lipstick, she amped it up a notch with a vampy red lip with red glitter. RED GLITTER. Can I get an amen?! I’ve been mildly obsessed with glitter ever since I was little. I thought I would take a shot at re-creating her iconic lip and show you my new secret weapon for kissable red lips! Keep reading to see how I re-created the look:

1. To begin, I applied a bright red lip liner to give my lips definition. I wanted the bright red hue to pop underneath the dark berry lipstick for a multi dimensional look.

2. Next, I applied a dark berry shade to my entire lips, covering the lip liner.

3. To create an ombre look, I applied a bright red lipstick in the innermost part of my lips.

4. I then applied red glitter to my entire lips with a lip brush. I applied a generous amount of lipstick.

5. To ensure my lipstick (and glitter) would stay in place, I finalized the look with my “No, My Lips Are Sealed” Lipstick Topcoat.  I just recently discovered this beauty tool and it is a game changer! Much like a nail polish top coat, this transparent gel prevents smudging of any kind. I was blown away by how quickly it left my lips totally kiss proof!

I am so happy with the finished look and think it would be a super fun look for Valentine’s Day! Have a date who doesn’t want red lipstick marks all over his face? After using the “No, My Lips Are Sealed” Lipstick Topcoat he won’t have to worry about staining or smudging! Now you can wear your deepest red lipstick without having to worry about any transfer! This lipstick topcoat is a beauty tool I wish I would have discovered sooner! Sold at Sephora, this lipstick top coat works with any lipstick and is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before! Y’all definitely need this product in your makeup collection! After trying out the “No, My Lips Are Sealed” lipstick topcoat I am so excited to try out the entire Know Cosmetics (sold at Sephora) line! The lineup I received looks amazing and can’t wait to share how I use them with y’all! I am especially excited to try out the No Dark Shadows Complexion Enhancer to erase the dark circles under my eyes!
