It’s been well-established that Taylor Swift has been something of a clotheshorse as of late, ditching the girly, tulle frocks of her country beginnings for crop tops, sleek silhouettes, and killer shoes. And, this style evolution goes hand-in-hand with her musical transition from guitar-toting crooner to full-fledged pop star.
Around the time of Speak Now, her third album (and this writer’s favorite, because "Why you gotta be so mean?"), Swift adopted a penchant for red lipstick. In fact, since about 2010, she’s rarely been spotted without it — even when she’s going to or coming from the gym. Many things in her life — musical tastes, BFFs, boyfriends — have changed, but that "red lip classic thing you like" has stayed the same.
Or, has it? To help us examine the progression of Swifty’s scarlet pout, we recruited makeup artists Gloria Noto and Rommy Najor. They'll tell you just how to copy each of her lovely lip looks. Click through, and see just how many different ways one girl can wear a lipstick.
