Taylor Swift won the evening's first award, as top album artist for her multimillion sales of "Speak Now." She also won top country artist! "The impact of an album is all determined by the fans," she told the audience, "you've just given me another reason to be completely in love with you."
Voted as one of the best dressed on the red carpets, Taylor’s make-up by COVERGIRL made her a winner from the beginning. Taylor's CoverGirl makeup artist Lorrie Turk shares how to get the look:
· The pastel colors we used to frame Taylor's eyes were really a reflection of the gorgeous palette and beading of her Elie Saab gown.
· I started her eyes by brushing on COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit in French Vanilla from her lash line to the crease and in the inner corners of her eyes. From the crease to just below the brow bone, I used Knock Out Pink, which really sets off Taylor's blue eyes. I used a little COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast Eyeliner in Black Fire to line the upper lash line and finished the eyes with LashBlast Volume Mascara.
· To perfect Taylor's already smooth complexion, I used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation and a touch of Cheekers Blush in Plumberry Glow on her cheeks.
· To finish Taylor's Billboard Awards look, I used COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipcolor in Tempt. It's a gorgeous vibrant pink--perfect for spring and summer.
