Elizabeth Taylor Puts on Eye Makeup. Riveting.

elizabeth taylor.jpg

Liz Taylor is the last of the red-hot movie goddesses, and I pray she's around forever as an eternal reminder of glamour, sex appeal, and violet eyes.

Even her colossal film turkeys have redeeming qualities!

In this arresting clip from the weirdly fabulash 1974 hydrogen bomb The Driver's Seat, Liz gives you a master class in applying makeup as if restoring the Mona Lisa.

Cosmeticizing has never been so thought-provoking yet inspiring -- it's really a fun little infomercial, in a way.

And after her painstaking process is completed, our unquenchable diva dares to cover it all up with designer sunglasses!

A brilliant touch, Liz. You drive us...crazy.

This is preferable to her writing "NO SALE!" in the mirror in lipstick at the beginning of "Butterfield 8."

Here is Similar Interesting Story

Elizabeth Taylor's incandescent beauty was almost fully developed at a very young age, and because she was in the public eye so young, her appearance even as a woman was reminiscent of the child she had been. Her beauty is a combination of innocent and lushly seductive.

You may not have been blessed with Elizabeth Taylor's startling violet eyes but you can capture her innocent yet sultry look with these simple make-up tips.

"The Bluebird" "Ash Wednesday" "Night Watch" "Hammersmith is Out"

Too, too divoon!

Jonster, I love "Secret Ceremony," especially the fabulous, baroque house in which Joseph Losey filmed it. Mia coming on to Liz, her faux Mummy, is pretty good, too.

Does anyone other than this media maven remember when "Secret Ceremony" first turned up on TV and Universal filmed and inserted shots of two shrinks discussing the Liz-Mia folie a deux "case" for the dolts they presumed were watching? They also changed La Liz's occupation from prostitute to"wig model."

When I heard the soundtrack, the first thing I thought was Oh this is that really strange movie she made in England with Mia Farrow in that creaky old house. But that was "Secret Ceremony." (I bet a lot of these old Taylor movies make it into the Musto film club.)

I always thought it was a tragedy what they did to her seat in "Reflections in the Golden Eye". Those riding pants were terribly unflattering.

Oh yes, intense is the word. Nothing quite so intense from Lady Elizabeth in the interminable "The Bluebird."

She has very thick eyebrows here. She is beautiful and at any size.

The Driver's Seat is so weird. Don't blink or you'll miss Andy Warhol. But you're right, there's something about Liz's bombs that make you want to watch. Even The Driver's Seat!!
