It was truly the year of Swift, and she proved it by releasing the "Out Of The Woods" music video just hours before the ball dropped on New Year's Eve. This video definitely didn't disappoint her fans, but in my opinion, Taylor Swift's gorgeous makeup is the absolute best part. Her "OOTW" beauty look is super simple and all about showing off natural beauty, which means that it is actually pretty easy to recreate.
While some people were obsessing over the message at the end of the video, I was busy focusing on Swift's glowing skin and smokey eyes. With so many close-up shots in the music video, her makeup was front and center the entire time. Well, until she was covered in mud that is. If I'm ever being chased through the forest by wolves, I hope my makeup can hold up as well Swift's.
The star manages to look glowy and lightly bronzed without seeming like she layered on tons of makeup, which is no easy feat. Even more impressive is her ability to rock the makeup through the rain, wind, water, and snow. Talk about long-lasting! OK, so odds are she didn't actually go through all this dramatic weather, but that doesn't take away from how fabulous her look was.

Swift is a makeup pro, and replicating her natural glow is easier than you might think. Opt for a highlighted cheek and nude lip to keep things sassy and sweet. Check out these tutorials to get that "OOTW" look.
1. Natural Glowing Skin
Bright, glowing skin is all about the order in which you apply your beauty products.
If you're looking for a Swift-like glow, try a highlighter for a little extra oomph.
3. Soft Smokey Eye
To get an eyeshadow look that makes a statement, but still looks natural, opt for a soft smokey eye instead of packing on color.
4. Subtle Eyeliner
A winged eyeliner doesn't have to be super noticeable. This tutorial is perfect for getting the subtle glam Swift look.

A nude lip never goes out of style — see what I did there?
6. Natural Glam
This look is super similar to Swift's "OOTW" makeup. It's soft and feminine done naturally.
