- 1st African American female to star in a major motion picture
- 1st African American female to integrate an American concert hall
- 1st African American female to become a world-famous entertainer
- 1st American born woman to receive the Croixe de Guerre, the highest French Military honor
Among her firsts she also fought the good fight for a number of causes including the Civil Rights Movement, and World War II in which she assisted the French Resistance. She was indeed a bad chick, no?
For going against the grain and forging your own path despite challenges and naysayers, Ms. Baker, I salute you!
The photo that was my REAL inspiration has a bit of nudity so I didnt post that one, but her look was very consistent; a smokey dark rimmed eye and a deep, dark lip. Here is what I used:
FACE: MUFE HD Foundation #177
EYES: MAC Engraved, MAC Carbon, Maybelline Lash Stylist, MAC Chestnut (brows - redrawn after I concealed my natural brow)
LIPS: MAC Cyber (which is coming out very light in this pic for some reason)
