Taylor Swift: I need red lipstick

Taylor Swift insists she doesn't have an "excessive amount" of red lipsticks.

The 24-year-old singer is known for her blonde locks and fair complexion, completing her iconic look with a slick of scarlet lipstick. Although she is rarely seen without the bold product on, Taylor insists there is good reason behind her choice.

“I don’t have an excessive amount! I just find one I like and use it,” she smiled to People. “Right now [I'm using] Dragon Girl by NARS... I’ll go through different phases with make-up and always try new things. Except I never really get too far from red lipstick, do I? I guess I just think my face looks worse without it. That’s pretty much the only rationale behind it.”

Along with her make-up and cute ensembles, the musician always rocks stylish footwear. Taylor, who has her own collection of shoes for Keds, is often seen wearing Oxford Heels ankle boots, which lace up at the front.

“I really like an oxford high heel for kind of looking more like either a student or like you’re going to work,” she added. “I don’t know; there’s something [that gives me some normality]. That’s what I kind of like to channel when I’m wearing them.”

When hanging out with her friends, Taylor rarely swaps clothes with them. She feels confident enough in her own skin to not seek other's assurance on what pieces she can pull off.

“The one common thread between [my friends] is they know who they are and they’re very sure of who they are,” Taylor insisted. “We don’t usually have the same style. If they see me wearing something, they know it’s because that’s something that represents me and they’ll wear something very different... It doesn’t really affect the conversation, what we’re wearing.”
