Taylor Swift - I don't want to live forever music video inspired Makeup tutorial


I still remember when 50 Shades of Grey the book was released and it caused quite the stir, every where you looked on the TTC (they are public trains/buses in the Greater Toronto Area), you couldn't help but notice that someone would be reading one of the books. Well, this February - the 10th to be exact, they are releasing 50 Shades Darker and with that you can expect there to also be new music videos from songs that are in the upcoming movie to be released. This post is inspired by one of the songs "I don't want to live forever" with Taylor Swift and Zayn. 

I remember growing up I used to love to watch this show on Much Music called "Becoming" where everyday people would have the chance to re-create music videos of their pop idols - it was the ultimate fan experience. Well, I decided to be inspired by the most recent music video and recreate the make-up look Taylor Swift had since I saw some of my friends on facebook and also on Instagram taking screenshots of her make-up and saying how gorgeous it is! 

If you haven't seen the video yet, you can watch it below (thanks to YouTube).

The products I used to create the look include:
1. Hourglass Cosmetics - Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick - Nude
2. Bobbi Brown - Creamy Concealer Kit - Natural Tan/Pale Yellow
3. Too Faced - Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer - Light Medium*
4. Chanel - Joues Contraste Powder Blush - 160 Innocence
5. Clio - Waterproof Pen Liner - Kill Black
7. Marc Jacobs - 240 About Last Night Eyeshadow Palette*
8. Christian Dior - Diorific Velvet Colour Lipstick - 880 Fascination (Mat)*
9. YSL - Vinyl Cream Lip Stain - 401 Rouge Vinyle*
10. Dark Pink/Red glitter pigment


For the face, most of the products used is pretty self explanatory - however, for the eyes I first took the Marc Jacobs palette below and placed shade 1 all over the lid. Then took shade 2 and buffed it with a loose crease brush on the outer crease. I build on that color by taking shade 3 with a pointed crease brush over the same outer crease area and then with one more thinner crease brush I used shade 4. I took the liquid liner to create a wing and smoked that out by using a flat top brush and shade 5 over the liner. Lastly to complete the look, I used the Annabelle Matte Single Eyeshadow in Pink Lemond on the brow bone and to clean up the crease area.


For the lips:
I used Dior 880 as a base since it has a really dark and rich berry color to create the base. Then I layered the YSL Rouge Vinyl on top to give the lips that beautiful red. The YSL Cream Lip Stain has a liquid formula to begin with so it is a perfect tacky base before it dries, to pat on the glitter and have it adhere to it. Although the glitter I used in this case is fuschia as I don't have a red, I think that the YSL Lip Cream helped to cast a red glow to it.


I hope you enjoy this new type of tutorial I created! Would love any constructive feedback!
Until next time, XO - M.
