Taylor Swift And The Genius Selfie Trick Every Girl Has To See

Taylor Swift has only gone and found a genius new use for the selfie – by using it as a crafty method of applying make-up on the run. Nice tip, Tay-Tay!

Caught without a mirror and in need of a little touch up, the 23-year-old I Knew You Were Trouble songstress did what any resourceful gal would’ve done and turned to her iPhone for help.

Sharing her time-effective beauty trick by posting a series of selfies showing her attempting to apply her signature red lipstick, Taylor wrote: ‘Using my phone camera as a mirror to re-apply red lipstick turned into….. @melanienyema @D8Clarice @D8Ricky’.

What started out as a sneaky bit of slap-application soon turned into a full-blown selfie shoot complete with photobombs, plenty of pouting and Swifty’s trademark surprised face. Still, that lippy’s looking pretty perfect to us!

The last time we saw Taylor, who will be celebrating her 24th birthday this Friday. was when she was rocking out on stage with Prince William at the Winter Whites Gala in London last month.

And with the Nashville-born starlet now in Australia for her worldwide Red Tour, it looks like we’re going to have to get use to getting our Taylor fix through Instagram for now…

With crafty beauty tricks like these on offer, we’ve got it bookmarked!
