We've seen Eldridge give herself every makeup look from the last 2,000 years, so we know her transformation skills are down pat. But even so, it seemed like a tall order to turn a pale-eyed, ice blonde into raven-haired Taylor.
Naturally, the eyes are the focal point. Liz Taylor was born with a double set of eyelashes so she didn't need much of a boost in that department and certainly never had to wear falsies, but model Laura needed a little more help. Eldridge explained that the classic Liz Taylor look of the mid-1950s had a little kitten flick, which she achieved with gel liner followed by glossy liquid liner.
It’s impossible to achieve the Elizabeth Taylor look without thick, dark eyebrows — they are "quite a big deal", Eldridge said, taking time to create a high arch point with a dramatic plunge down at a strong angle.
The rule against strong eyes and strong lips at the same time clearly didn’t exist in Taylor’s day. Eldridge used a red lip pencil to create a straight line from the corner of the lip up to the cupid’s bow, filled in with an orange-red pencil and finally covered with a "true red" lipstick with a little shine.
The finished look is pretty impressive, no?
