Those eyes! Carmen Mondragón was born in Mexico City and died in the home she was born in 85 years later - but in between, what a life! Artist and poet, she was a muse/model for other artists.

She has the eye shading called "smokey eyes", I believe, like Joan Jett wore in her youth. Beautiful woman.
