There are several things that have become synonymous with Taylor Swift: Cats, the number thirteen, baking cookies… and red lipstick. For the past couple of years, Taylor is rarely spotted without a red lip, and there’s only one reason why Taylor’s been so into the trend: She says she simply looks way better with it than without it.
“I guess I just think my face looks worse without it,” Taylor tells People. “That’s pretty much the only rationale behind it.”
Of course, we think Taylor looks beautiful with or without the lipstick, but if it boosts her confidence, why not go red? There’s no denying that a pop of red lipstick makes everyone suddenly feel like an instant movie star.
So does this mean that Taylor has a zillion tubes of the stuff at home? Nope.
“I don’t have an excessive amount! I just find one I like and use it,” Taylor says. “Right now, Dragon Girl by NARS … I’ll go through different phases with makeup and always try new things. Except I never really get too far from red lipstick, do I?” Negative. Another TSwift style must-have? High heeled oxford shoes.
“I really like an oxford high heel for kind of looking more like either a student or like you’re going to work,” Taylor explains. “I don’t know, there’s something [that gives me some normality]. That’s what I kind of like to channel when I wear them.”
Style tip: Anything your grandma might wear? Buy it. Taylor Swift will think you’re fabulous.
