Karlie Kloss turns to Taylor Swift for beauty tips

Karlie Kloss turns to Taylor Swift for beauty tips

Karlie Kloss looks to Taylor Swift for advice on beauty products and make-up techniques.

The Chicago-born model is close friends with the pop star and even starred in Taylor's star studded video for her 2014 hit song Bad Blood.

But while Karlie, a former Victoria's Secret Angel, is no stranger to getting dolled up for photo shoots and glitzy A-list events, she reveals her famous pal is much more proficient when it comes to getting red carpet ready.

"Taylor can do a killer red pout. I love her signature beauty look: the classic lip and winged eyeliner," Karlie told Britain's InStyle magazine. "She's really good at doing her own make-up, so I've definitely picked up some good tips and products from her."

However, Karlie admits she likes to keep her routine as efficient as possible as she would rather get a extra minutes of beauty sleep each morning rather than spend time applying make-up.

The blonde beauty thinks she typically spends about seven minutes putting on make-up and then another seven minutes on selecting her outfit each day.

"I really love sleep, so I tend to do whatever I can to get a lie-in. I like to keep it simple with just the right amount of 'un-make-up make-up' - some cover-up, a flick of mascara, and a bit of cream blush and I'm usually out the door," she shared.

The extra time Karlie gains in the mornings allows her to dedicate more time to improving her fitness, through strength training or Pilates classes.

But its ballet which the 23-year-old credits for making her the fashion star she is today. Karlie, who has scored campaigns for the likes of L'Oreal, Chanel and sportswear brand Nike, explains that she uses elements of her classical dance training in her job and views posing for photographers as a type of performance.

"Ballet training not only teaches you posture, but also movement and body awareness. I'm 6ft 1in and a half - in ballet my height worked against me, but luckily it works in my favour for modelling," she laughed.
