Taylor Swift smolders at the Academy of Country Music Awards

Taylor Swift is known for her low-key yet glamorous makeup looks, but she surprised everyone at the Academy of Country Music Awards by wearing a smoldering smoky eye. Glamour Magazine's beauty blog reports that the effect was dramatic and sexy, and it's easy to copy yourself using blinc cosmetics.

First, you'll need to apply a smoky brown eyeshadow all over your lids, bringing it up a bit past your creases and winging it out into a small triangle that connects your upper lash line to your lower lash line. Be sure to blend well for a soft effect.

Now, apply a bronze shadow in your inner corners and along your lower lash line, then use a gold eyeliner pencil to line the inner rims of your eyes. This will make them appear larger. Brown or black liquid eyeliner should be used to line your upper lash line, making your lashes look fuller and more dramatic.

Use blinc's heated eyelash curler to give your lashes a dramatic curve, then follow up with tube mascara to lengthen your lashes and set the curl. The no-run, no-smudge formula is guaranteed to last until you're ready to wipe it off easily with a bit of warm water.
