306/365 Days of Eyeshadow

By Sheila Arkee

In memory of one of my beauty idols, I couldn’t resist a take on a Cleopatra-style eye!

Did you know Dame Liz usually did her own makeup on movies and in real life? It’s true – check out this People Magazine article about Way Bandy, which is actually fascinating in itself. In any event, I remember reading a biography about Elizabeth Taylor many years ago and Angela Lansbury said that they’d worked together once and she told Elizabeth that it was a good thing for actors to know how to do their hair and makeup and be able to pull theirselves together and Elizabeth did her own makeup from then on.

    WOW – this “blue” me away! (Like you didn’t see THAT coming…) Perfectly executed, and it’s interesting that you chose MAC False Lashes for this look.
