We’ve always been closely following our 2-time GL cover girl (and dream bestie) Taylor Swift. She sang her
way through The Hunger Games and appeared as the
red-haired doll in The Lorax.
Recently, we’ve been “Eyes Open” for Taylor Swift’s gorge look for the
Billboard Awards. Believe it or not, you can recreate Taylor’s trendy style
with drugstore products under $10. With products this cheap, you will be
donning this look on dates, parties, and summer concerts galore. Trust!
To mimic Taylor’s enviable glow, start with this velvety
foundation. The creamy, lightweight formula will cover redness and uneven skin
tone while moisturizing those annoying dry patches and providing a punch of
SPF! And it smells delicious—like a summery cucumber salad (yum).

The key to this look would have to be that dramatic
eyeshadow! Try CG’s Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadow in Blossoms. Don’t feel
intimidated by these four shades: They’re surprisingly simple to use. Pat the
shimmery cranberry shade all over the lid and swipe it along the lower lash
line with a liner brush or Q-tip.

This pencil eyeliner is a summer must-have: It stays on all
day through heat and sweat (no smudgy raccoon eyes). Line your eyes with this
creamy and smooth bold black, then use the other end to slightly smudge the
liner for a subtle smoky eye.

For noticeably thick lashes, try out this mascara: It’ll
define each of those pretty lashes, pump them up, and stay that way without
flaking or clumping. If you have thin straight lashes, this product might be
this summer’s miracle-worker.

Taylor’s cute pout makes this CoverGirl look like a natural
beauty! This glossy balm has SPF 15 to keep your pucker from peeling. This
product will leave you feeling soft and moisturized—something you might not get
from your typical lipstick.
