Taylor Swift’s Best Beauty Moments Have This In Common

If we were playing a game of word association with Taylor Swift as our subject, red lipstick would likely be one of the top identifiers tossed around. Through her rise from newbie country singer to chart-topping pop star, Swift and her favorite makeup look have become nearly inseparable. In fact, since about 2010, Swift has rarely been spotted without a crimson pout, whether she’s on stage, hitting the red carpet, or just cruising around New York City. 

Of course, just because she loves red lipstick doesn’t mean she doesn’t experiment with shades and textures. To celebrate today’s release of the star’s buzzy new Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, we took an in-depth look at the best ways the singer has sported her signature lip color over the years.
