Not many know that Elizabeth Taylor had two natural sets of  black eyelashes that made her captivating violet purple eyes pop. Her hair looked raven black but was really a very dark brown, and her skin was a flawless alabaster. She was married eight times, twice to Richard Burton and won two Oscars.

As I was looking for a new actress paint, I was captivated by Elizabeth Taylor’s beauty.  Her eyes that draw you in, slender nose, and her tapered red lips, I knew had to capture her on paper.
