Eye Look: Inspired by Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' Music Video

I'm not a massive fan of Taylor Swift after she stopped making country music but the 'Bad Blood' video (though just a bizarre series of cameos with no story line- am I wrong or am I right?) does indeed contain some kick-ass looks. Everything was black, smokey and winged: so instead of just doing one specific look, I did a look inspired by the makeup throughout the whole video.

It's pretty simple because nothing has to be neat! There's a step-by-step guide and more pics below.
  1. I began with priming my eyes (with Urban Decay's Primer Potion) and a neutral shadow.
  2. I then added Urban Decay Buck into the crease and Sidecar onto the outer corner.
  3. I then cat-eye lined my eyes. Don't make it neat as it's going to be smoked out in the next step!
  4. I then smoked out the liner with a matte black shadow, bringing the black colour no further than in line with my pupil.
  5. I added a liquid line to my lower lash line and smoked this out with black kohl.
  6. Finally I added mascara, false lashes (these were applied pretty lazily, apologies) and a little more Sidecar to give the lid a glitter finish.
Watch the video here if you haven't already- even if it's just for the makeup! Which is your favourite look? Let me know below!


  1. Sidecar is my favorite shadow, of all time.... so anything that uses that is a winner in my book hahah.

    1. Oooo same! It's so lovely and versatile xoxo

  2. Beautiful smokey look.
    I can create this hopefully with my urban decay naked palette. :)


    1. Yep that's the one you'll need! x
