It’s been almost decade-and-a-half since the 14-year-old Taylor Swift moved from her native Pensylvania to Nashville, Tennesee in order to pursue a career in country music. In the intervening time, Swift’s growth has eclipsed this musical style and propelled her to global stardom. Today, the 27-year-old is considered one of the best-selling artists of all time and an inspiration to women everywhere.
So if you love T-Swift, you would probably jump at the chance to have some of her looks, right? Well, you’re in luck! South Korean makeup artist Pony, has cracked a way of not only resembling Swift’s makeup, but actually becoming a real Taylor Alison doppelgänger. And no, the process does not include any surgical procedures! Scroll down to find out how.
Like most successful makeup stories, this one, too, begins with a quality foundation and a fierce round of highlighting and contouring.
Upon that base, a meticulous brow technique which includes perfect shaping and coloring is applied.
Once her brows are complete, Pony contours and highlights in more detail, specifically altering the shape of her nose.
Next stop: a set of brown shadows to achieve a rich base for the more dramatic tones that will come later.
Then a classic cat eye using jet black gel eyeliner is added to the picture…
…which is then accented with a shimmery, rose gold pencil.
To subtly change the shape of the eyelid, Pony uses a set of grays and browns.
The Korean artist then adds a sleek liquid liner to the mix, and it is then the Taylor look really comes to life.
Don’t forget the set of false lashes…
…as well as T’s signature red lips…
…and this too-good-to-be-true transformation is complete!
If you have trouble believing it, watch the complete process in the video!
