Taylor Swift Does Ed Sheeran’s Makeup During Their VMA Pre-Party

Taylor's set to perform at tonight's show, kicking off at 9 p.m.

Taylor Swift already teased us with a snap of a sparkle-ecrusted microphone pre-MTV Video Music Awards. Now, she’s giving us a glimpse at her pre-show prep — a routine that apparently involved lots of cuddles with her cat and a makeup session with her BFF.

Taylor Swift, she’s just like you (assuming you are a girl who has ever prepared for a school dance) — except her cat glows with the glory of a 1,000 angels and her BFF is Ed Sheeran.

“These are our #VMAs game faces,” Swift wrote, throwing up an adorable snap of her and her cat Olivia Benson mugging for the camera. Where’s Meredith, Tay?! Doesn’t she get get any shine?

Benson was soon dumped in favor of VMA prep, however, as Swift shared a photo soon after of her playing makeup artist for Ed Sheeran, one of her many, many BFFs. We’re guessing they’re getting some quality hang-out time in before the big night, seeing as how they’re not sitting next to each other (travesty!).
