Taylor Swift's No Makeup Selfie Is Stunning, Demonstrates She Doesn't Always Do The Over-The-Shoulder Pose

If you woke up like this, you'd be giving off a sly grin, too! Taylor Swift's no makeup selfie proves that the singer is just as stunning without her signature black eyeliner and her ever-present red lipstick. The poet laureate of the 17-and-under female set is quite a natural beauty, with her model height, her gorgeous facial features, and her ability to rock the over-the-shoulder red carpet pose better than her bestie Karlie Kloss, who is an actual runway strutter.

With this Instagram snap, in which she semi-quoted Beyonce, Swift reminds us that she doesn't need a lick of makeup. Her hair is flawless, so I can't help but wonder if she perhaps ran a quick brush or even her hands through her strands before she turned the camera on herself. Still, that's very minimal primping!

Swift isn't like Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga, or Katy Perry, who often post makeup-free selfies on their IG feeds, giving their fanbases an inside look. She rarely shows off her bare face, so it's a big deal when she does. This is a serious keyhole view of T. Swift, makeup-less and in bed.

And besides, who needs a slick of crimson color on the pucker or an elongated cat eye flick hugging the upper lashline when you have an accessory like the adorbs Olivia Benson, Swift's cat (who is named after Mariska Hargitay's Law & Order: SVU character)? The "Style" singer woke up bright-eyed and lovely, with a kitten curled up next to her. That's the life, isn't it? By the way, Liv looks cute sans makeup, too.

Thanks for the sneak peek, Tay Tay, and for the proof that you can deviate from the signature over-the-shoulder and looking back red carpet pose.

It's refreshing to know she doesn't simply appear already in full makeup and with perfectly coiffed hair, gazing wistfully off to the side.

Yep, T. Swizzle has clearly perfected this stance. The evidence is all around us. That's also why it's nice to see her loosen up, chill out, and look straight ahead, even if only on IG.

No wonder her back and shoulders are toned. She works 'em out on red carpet waltzes.

You talking to me?!

Fierce! Those hips don't lie.

Shoulders back, elbows at a perfect angle, head slightly turned.

There's this awesome adage about not looking back, since you're not going that way. However, Taylor Swift makes quite a case for not only going without makeup but for looking back all day, every day.
