Ever since she blessed our ears with Love Story, Taylor Swift has been a permanent fixture on the red carpet — especially in the context of fashion and beauty. With her honeyed blonde hair, bow-shaped lips and signature flick, Taylor has delivered more iconic makeup looks over the years than we can count on one hand. But that doesn’t mean we won’t try!

In the thick of Swift fever (surely you’ve seen All Too Well by now) we’ve rounded up a dozen of Taylor’s finest moments, from the classic Hollywood glamour we’ve come to know and love her for, to the bleach blonde shag cuts we’ve seen in between.

In the early Love Story days, Taylor was known (and loved) for her perfectly-formed honey blonde curls. Seen here with a dusting of charcoal shimmer shadow, it was a great beauty pairing for her journey into pop-stardom.

In 2013 in Cannes, Taylor went for longer, darker hair and lashings of dark black kohl. It’s a departure from her usual cateye, but we’re into it.

Dressed in blue Ellie Saab, Taylor won Record of The Year and Song of The Year on this night. Paired with a soft navy winged liner and her signature side-swept bangs, she looks beautiful.

The choppy blonde shag, the platinum smokey eye — this look is edgy but glamorous.

2015 was a big year for Taylor, was it not? Seen above at the MTV VMAs, Taylor showed off a very fierce winged liner, a matching sequinned houndstooth set and a sleek low ponytail. The clip for Bad Blood won best video that night — so the dark makeup feels apt.

Hollywood curls, a red lip and winged liner is the quintessential Taylor beauty look. According to her makeup artist Lorrie Turk, the exact shade is Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl (adds to cart).

Remember those iconic photos of Taylor and BFF Selena on this fateful night? From the orange-red lip to the pink shimmer and fluffy black lashes, we love everything about this.

Super sleek and sultry, Taylor looks pretty incredible here. From the Alexandre Vauthier gown to the chin-grazing bob, this is certainly an iconic red carpet moment.

Who is she?! They golden blonde hair, Barbie pink lip gloss and ultra-dark bronzer have her looking like a different person—fun though!

A slightly more grown-up Taylor looked incredible at the 2018 AMAs. With a natural-looking shade of blonde, heavy set of bangs and thick lashes, it’s glamorous but sophisticated. Love!

Just nights ago, Taylor wore her version of the ‘revenge dress’ (RIP Jake Gyllenhaal). A long dark blonde blow dry, red lips and creamy skin were the ultimate accompaniment.

Imperfect bangs, red lips, a cat eye… this is Taylor’s signature, for sure. And you know what they say: if it ain’t broke…
