Right now, the #1 most stressful part about going to The Eras Tour is hoping to God that Taylor Swift plays your favorite song as a surprise track at the show you’re going to. Seriously—I have to start every day by frantically checking Twitter to make sure right where you left me hasn’t graced the setlist yet. Anyway, the second most stressful part is obviously deciding on the perfect look. While there are practically a million different directions to go with your outfit (the purple Speak Now dress, a red scarf for Red, my personal fav of Taylor in those goggles after she got LASIK eye surgery, etc.), makeup looks for the respective eras can be a little bit harder to nail down. But of course, we got you covered.

Whether you’re going for debut, Midnights, or any era in between, we’ve rounded up some of the best makeup looks for you to draw inspo from for your own Eras Tour moment. From shining like a mirrorball to sporting Blondie’s classic red lip, read on to find the perfect look for you:

Once you have your cowboy hat and boots on lock (yes, if you’re dressing for the debut era those are literally mandatory), it’s time to go for a teal and green eye look as an ode to the iconic album cover. Not only does this tutorial match the color palette perfectly, but the shape of the eyeshadow mimics the butterfly wings also found on debut’s cover art. Drawing a butterfly a little bit above your pay grade? First, same. Second, you can still create the perfect Debut look by using the same teal and green colors. Yeehaw, ladies.

Fearless

@emmaaureliae

fearless is that subtle glam girl, this look made me feel so beautiful #erastour #erastourtaylorswift #makeupinspo #editorialmakeup #editorialmakeuplook #editorialmakeupartist #trending

♬ Love Story (Taylor’s Version) – Taylor Swift

Sticking with golds and yellows for a Fearless era moment is definitely the way to go, and this tutorial gives an elevated yet still simple look that’ll perfectly match both a simple country girl fit or Love Story-esque ball gown. Plus, you can think of any extra golden shimmer as a nod to the AOTY Grammy it swept up (as it should have).

We all know that purple dress…so obviously a purple eye look is a must-do for all my Speak Now girlies. This glowing smokey eye is a gorgeous yet simple option for anyone looking for more of a subtle ode to the era. A look so good it’ll make J*hn M*ayer weep.

♬ All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) – Taylor Swift

As for the Red stans out there, what would a makeup look be without the signature matte red lip? A classic glam is definitely the way to go for this era, whether you’re pairing it with a red scarf and autumn-esque fit or the 22 music video black fedora and “not a lot going on at the moment” t-shirt (both are impeccable choices). 

Shop The Look:

Urban Decay
Naked2 Eyehadow Palette
For a classic glam look, a simple matte eye is your go-to base—and no one pulls that look off quite like the holy grail Naked palette.

1989

@roselynnlouise

Is it 1989 if I don’t have glitter in my eye for the next 72 hours #taylorswift #taylorsversion #1989 #swiftie #swifttok #tserastour #makeuptutorial

♬ Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version) – Taylor Swift

In my opinion, 1989 has a bunch of color palettes to choose from. But, if you’ve seen the iconic nail set Taylor’s been wearing for the tour so far where one nail represents each era (genius behavior), her 1989 nail is a bright, icy blue. So, this eye look that’s based around that shade is perfect for the occasion.

Shop The Look:

NYX
Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in 'Chill Blue'
Start with a classic winged liner in this icy blue shade.
Shop now
ColourPop
Pressed Powder Palette in 'Blue Velvet'
Add a blue and silver shimmer all over the lid.

♬ …Ready For It? – Taylor Swift

If you’re dressing for the Reputation era, it’s time to bring the drama. This is not the time for a simple glam. It’s your moment to be the baddest b*tch in that stadium. Pull out that dark, smokey eye and don’t look back.

Shop The Look:

Sephora Collection
Colorful Eyeshadow in 'Secret Boudoir'
Black eyeshadow can be a little tricky to work with in terms of excess fallout and creasing, so make sure you start with a nude base shadow to prime the lid.

Even though folklore definitely gives a very minimalist, natural vibe in terms of aesthetic, there’s still a beacon of hope for an all out glam approach to this era: the mirrorball. Take some inspo from this tutorial and go for a shimmery, silver eye and glowy base for the perfect concert look.

This look is all about glowing, shining, and sparkling, so starting out with a dewy base is a must-do first step.

♬ dorothea – Taylor Swift

Just like folklore, evermore as a whole doesn’t exactly inspire a ton of ~fun~ makeup looks. But, if you’re still wanting to go all out for this era, pulling inspo from dorothea is the perfect way to do it: a soft girl autumn look, if you will. Pop on a subtle bronzed smokey eye and a blushed and glowing base for an effortless and super pretty finish.

Versed
Luminizing Glow Drops
Highlight the high points of the face with bronzed glow drops to add a subtle glow.

Midnights

@anabunnyfaye

midnights inspired makeup look

♬ Style – Taylor Swift

I personally think that the Midnights era has the most potential for a ton of on-theme looks: something purple for Lavender Haze, sparkles for Bejeweled, tears streaming down your face for You’re On Your Own Kid, etc. So if you want to channel it all or can’t decide which direction to go, copying her album cover look of a blue smokey eye and deep orange lip is the perfect choice. 

Shop The Look:

MAC
Matte Eyeshadow in 'Charcoal Brown'
Use a matte brown shadow as the base for the eye look, blending it all the way up to the brow bone.
