Taylor Swift's eye makeup turning heads in London

Taylor Swift has been taking time off from touring and hitting all the hot spots as she spends time in London, England. Not surprisingly, fans and media alike have been following her every move, and they've been struck by her dazzling take on the smoky eye look with lighter eyeshadow and a touch of tube mascara, according to Cosmopolitan.com.

In what can only be described as the "foggy" eye, Swift has crafted a fabulous daytime makeup option that could be ideal for a day in the park or heading off to work. To recreate the look, start with one of your lightest colors as a base - creams, pale peach or opal are great options to cover your upper lid. Use a bit near your inner crease to act as an additional focal point.

Next, use a bit of mid-level color like gray, violet or anything else you'd like to try. The trick to the look is the darkest hue - instead of using liquid eyeliner which could be a bit too striking during the day, Swift used the darkest eyeshadow in her palette to add visual interest to the perimeter of her eyes.

When you're experimenting with eyeshadow, you don't want the perfect style to fall by the wayside during the day, so be sure to prep your skin with eyeshadow primer. This will protect your cosmetics from running, flaking and smudging throughout the day.
