Taylor Swift loves a red lip, and is rarely seen without it. Whether she's onstage, on the red carpet, or hanging out with her friends, the starlet is wearing her signature scarlet lipstick. While it's quite the fashion statement there's another reason the 24-year-old slicks her lips in red.

The singer tells People, "I’ll go through different phases with makeup and always try new things. Except I never really get too far from red lipstick, do I? I guess I just think my face looks worse without it. That’s pretty much the only rationale behind it.”

Despite the fact that she uses red lipstick so often, she admits that there aren't hundreds of different types of tubes rolling around in her purse -- and she also dishes the brand and color she's currently wearing (cue Swifties rushing to their nearest Sephora).

“I don’t have an excessive amount! I just find one I like and use it. Right now [I'm using] Dragon Girl by NARS."

The '22' hitmaker is absolutely gorgeous -- even without makeup, and her generous heart and spirit truly make her beautiful inside and out. With or without lipstick.
