Taylor Swift is a good looking gal anyway, but after a few years of being primped, preened and pampered by stylists and make-up artists, we reckon she's picked up more than a quick beauty trick or two.

So when American mag Allure managed to pin the songstress down - she's been off touring for ages! - for a beauty based Q&A last week, we were pretty darn excited!

From handling her curly mane with style, to taking care of her skin, working the pale look and keeping her lippy on for hours - get ready for a beauty masterclass TSwizzle style!

Want to keep your curls as cute as Taylor's?

"My hair is naturally curly," says TayTay, "so some days I just let it be. But when I wake up and my hair looks like a mess, I curl my hair by wrapping the hair around the curling iron to create a spiral look."

"I don't use any hair products because I have this fear of putting too much mousse in it or something and my hair ending up feeling crunchy."

On making her lipstick stay put, Taylor says: ""There are tricks I've learned from makeup artists on shoots. They put on the red lipstick, then blot it with a tissue, then they put powder over the tissue and sort of press it onto your lips. Then re-apply. It turns it into a stain that lasts much longer!"

Ooh, nice insider tip!

When it comes to tanning, Taylor doesn't care for faking it...

"I don't mind being pale. In high school, it seemed like everybody cared about being tanned all year round, but I haven't really thought about it since then. I don't go to a tanning bed, and I get bored when I lay out. I put sunscreen on when I'm in the sun and sometimes I get tan, but I don't really think about it very much."

Wondering how she keeps her skin clean and fresh?

"I use whatever is around, really. I'll go to the drugstore and just get makeup removal pads, facial scrubs (that I always forget to use).The one thing I do daily is a put on night cream every morning before I put on my make up, and at night before I go to bed."

Finally, when it comes to nightly regimes, Taylor's is pretty relaxed...

"I take my contacts out, wash my face, put on night cream, and put on my glasses so I can watch Friends. Sometimes I forget to wash off my makeup. Okay—almost all the time!"
