Silver-screen queen and beauty icon Elizabeth Taylor just mesmerized the internet in a resurfaced clip of the late actress doing her makeup. In the video from The Driver's Seat, the violet-eyed star swiftly applies makeup to perfect a smoky eye in no time and proves that perhaps she's the original makeup tutorial guru.

Taylor starts off by using a fluffy brush to nail her deep crease cut and goes back in to cover her lid in a blue shadow, blending it to perfection. She finishes her look by sweeping on the dark shade along her lower lash line, slightly winging it out with total ease (seriously, she looks like she can do this with her eyes closed). Her confidence is palpable in the clip, and those skills are no joke.

Kim Kardashian West's makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, pointed out Taylor's skills in a regram of the clip. "She did that eye in seconds with that tiny brush," he wrote. "Shadow, crease, and liner. Boom."

Beauty vloggers, take note because Elizabeth Taylor just schooled us in this throwback clip.
