Taylor Swift’s Favorite Red Lipsticks: An Investigation


    Taylor Swift’s Favorite Red Lipsticks: An Investigation

    After Taylor Swift dropped the rerecording of Red (Taylor’s Version) last week, fans have been revisiting her high-profile romance with Jake Gyllenhaal, the (rumored) inspiration behind the album. But let’s redirect our focus to Swift’s longest, most solid relationship over the years: her love affair with red lipstick. 

    As all Swifties know, the singer’s love story with red lipstick is thoroughly documented in her music. She’s name-dropped the shade in “The Moment I Knew, “Style,” “Wildest Dreams,” and “Blank Space, to name a few. And you would be hard-pressed to find Swift on a red carpet or stage without a crimson lip perfectly applied.

    Swift’s longtime makeup artist Lorrie Turk keeps mum on the shades she uses on Swift—one scroll through Turk’s Instagram page will show fans in the comments begging for info. But earlier this year, Turk did create a shelf on Shop My Shelf, an online shopping community where beauty pros share their favorite products, and included her go-to shades. As Swift’s trusted makeup artist, it’s safe to assume the pop star has worn at least a few of Turk’s picks.
