Ross says she didn't always have her makeup professionally done.
She said in an interview, "It (professional makeup) started right after some of the touring days, right after we started having hit records and started doing television specials, and they would hire a makeup person for us. But before then we would do our own makeup. I would create my own eyeliner—lots of eyelashes. I would create my own look that I thought was right for me…It was a wonderful, playful time, and fashion, beauty, and clothes became a part of the image of who the classic Diana Ross was.”
