Beauty Icon – Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor was not only a Hollywood actress but her glamorous lifestyle, beauty and incredible violet eyes were, and still are, an inspiration.  Even though you may not have her violet eyes I can show you how to emulate this classic Taylor look.

Matt velvet skin (funnily her first film was National Velvet in 1944), Soft arched eyebrows, delicate lips and a natural double row of lashes – we can recreate this as Very.co.uk do the best False Eyelashes for the ‘so on trend’ look.  Lizzies’s eyes were lined with Coal and let’s add a set of lashes Eylure Naturalites 101 for the ‘Glamour’ without being obvious and intensifies this sultry eye look.

Begin by concealing the eyes with YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch then apply Jelly Pong Pong Mineral Foundation to create the Taylor made velvet matt skin.  Swirl into the skin with ease, it’s talc free powder will not dry out your skin.

One of the keys to this look is groomed brows. Eylure Shape, Shade and Brow Palette is amazing and also includes stencils too suit nearly all face shapes.

Moisturise your lips using Vaseline intensive care and then Ms Taylor always favoured an orangey red.  My favourite to create this is Daniel Sandler’s Micro Bubble Lipstick – Red.  This suits all and is VERY Elizabeth Taylor.
