Cleopatra eyeliner, bold new brows, and lips so red they make the heart race (literally) there's precious little that's muted in makeup right now.

THE CLOSE-UP: Taylor's skin is perfection, her lips nude. Focus is on the black precision eyeliner worn alone or with accents of turquoise, aqua, silver, and sapphire to enhance her famous violet eyes.
BACKSTAGE BUZZ: "It's all about hypnotic, mesmerizingly beautiful eyes," says Charlotte Tilbury, makeup artist at the Alexander McQueen show.
YOUR TAKE: Start with fine black liner along your top lashline (add more if you dare) as close to your eyelashes as possible. Cream liners create a rich, glossy finish, but for novices, a pen liner is easier to maneuver. Craving color? Use a navy liner or a soft wash of blue over your lids.
