Taylor Swift is obsessed with cosmetics, according to make-up guru Pat McGrath.

The celebrated make-up artist is behind the sparkly looks in Taylor's Bejeweled music video, with Pat even making a cameo as the queen in Taylor's take on the Cinderella story alongside the Haim sisters, Laura Dern, Jack Antonoff and Dita Von Teese.

"Taylor is obsessed with the make-up," Pat smiled to British Vogue about their collaboration. "Her knowledge is kind of incredible."

Revealing the shoot was like "preparing for a haute couture show", Pat and her team used products from her own Pat McGrath Labs make-up line.

Some of Taylor's looks include red lips, sapphire tears and colourful cat eyes.

"The Bejeweled beauty is all about exaggeration, elegance, and extravagance," the cosmetics queen shared. "It really was about a celebration. A celebration in all things Taylor, but also a celebration in beauty, of being daring, having fun, being bejewelled, shimmer, and glitter. It really was an explosion of all the joy."

And as well as starring in the video, Taylor also wrote and directed the promo herself.

Reflecting on being directed by the pop superstar, Pat shared, "Taylor managed everything with pure grace and she was kind, thoughtful, and a joy to work with - really a creative force. I mean it's something else to watch. She's a legend."
