Hello lovelies, today I will be discussing 15 ways to live like Elizabeth Taylor in 2020.
1.Take a bath to set your makeup.
Once she was all ready, Taylor would take a short bath to set her makeup. The steam from the bath was the final step before they quickly took the rollers out and teased her hair. This gave her skin a dewy look as opposed to a matte one. She also liked to wear a sheer foundation to let her freckles show through.
2.Use drugstore skincare
Elizabeth Taylor loved to use drugstore makeup brands, and her favorite face cream was Jergens.
3.Wear matte grey eyeliner instead of black
Her Favorite Eyeliner Was Matte Grey
Elizabeth Taylor always used a grey Clinique eyeliner. It was a cake eyeliner with a brush that gave a soft application versus a graphic black liquid eyeliner.
4.Collect Elizabeth Arden lipsticks

5.Add lipglosses on top of your lipsticks
Elizabeth Taylor loved a shiny lip and would always get a matching lip gloss with a sponge applicator. Her favorite brands were Dior, YSL, and Chanel.
6.Wear the color Green
Elizabeth Taylor’s favorite color was green; she even had a green car.
She would flit around in the Rolls, which she nicknamed “The Green Goddess” due to its custom green color. Green was Taylor’s favorite color, and it was the same color as the wedding dress she wore when she wed Fisher.
7.Eat a classic farm-style breakfast
“Two fried eggs, hamburger patties, hash brown potatoes, and a stack of silver dollar pancakes and maple syrup.” Although Taylor eventually traded the decadent meal for a simple breakfast of seasonal fruit, whole-wheat toast, and tea or coffee, she said: ” I still have a big appetite. I think I could happily polish off a huge Tipps breakfast today, though I wouldn’t dare try.”
8.Indludge in a hot fudge sundae
Taylor loved and lost many times throughout her life. But she was steadfastly loyal to her favorite foods even while dieting. She especially loved to indulge in ice cream milkshakes or sundaes.
9.Eat fried chicken
Fried chicken was one of Taylor’s favorite foods.
10.Wear diamonds and statement jewelry
“Life without earrings is empty!” Elizabeth Taylor once proclaimed. One of her favorite pairs were diamond and platinum chandeliers. She was photographed in these earrings more frequently than any other jewel in her collection.
These shoulder-dusting antique chandeliers were favorites of Taylor’s, wearing them first in 1959 and 4 decades later in 1992 at the Academy Awards. When she discovered them in a Paris boutique, they sparkled with paste (glass) gems. She wrote, “A few months later, back in New York, I was getting ready for a party and went to put them on. I opened the box, and the earrings looked all polished up. I put them on. There was something different about how they fit. I said, ‘Mike, there’s something wrong with my earrings.’ He chuckled and said he’d had them made up with real diamonds!”
The Taylor–Burton Diamond, a diamond weighing 68 carats, became notable in 1969 when it was purchased by actors Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. It was initially set in a ring. “But even for me, it was too big,” Taylor said. “So we had Cartier design a necklace.” She wore the new design to the Academy Awards in 1970.
11.Wear vintage fur coats or faux furs
Elizabeth Taylor loved fur jackets, heavily bejeweled shifts, and one-of-a-kind hats were her signatures.
12.Wear white diamonds perfume
The launch of her first perfume in 1987, Passion, was the beginning of a fragrance empire that would be one of the most successful in history. Passion for Men was launched in 1989, and other perfumes followed, such as the exotic Diamonds & Emeralds, the sparkling Diamonds & Sapphires, and the dramatic Diamonds & Rubies. Elizabeth Taylor’s perfumes are among the first and few to have any staying power at the perfume counter.
13.Use Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream
Later in life, she opted for higher-end brands like Elizabeth Arden and would religiously use the classic Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream from the 1930s.
14.Use Maquifard setting powder
Her favorite setting powder was a lesser-known brand from Japan called Maquifard.
15.Wear statement hats and turbans
Elizabeth Taylor was frequently seen wear unique hats and turbans as well as other statement accessories.
