Sophia Loren is a Hollywood screen star that has graced the big screen since the 50's.
After fleeing her home town in Italy during WWII after she was hit by shrapnel. She and her family set up home in Naples. They remained there until after the war when they returned home to Pozzuoli to set up a family restaurant.
In the restaurant Sophia would serve the American GI's and after much flattery from them she decided at 14 to enter a beauty contest. She didn't win but this gave her the confidence to enroll into acting classes where she was selected as an extra in the film Quo Vadis.
Over the past 5 decades the has starred in many movies winning 21 different awards including the Academy award for her role in the movie Two Women.*
Her beauty and style was always a major attraction and as a lover of cosmetics she knew how to create a make-up look that both corrected and flattered her features.
Sophia has beautiful round eyes but to make them look more feline and almond shaped she would drag out the liner from under the eye meet it up with the top liner but leave a large triangular gap in the corner. This would make the eye appear longer and more narrow.
Her look is all about the eyes and there is only be subtle colour on the skin and lips.
This is a look she has become well known for and continues to use today.
The skin is kept natural with a subtle peach blush.
All of the emphasis is on the strong brow and that perfect dragged out liner, keep the lips nude and matte.
This look does work best on those with round eyes so the detail is a little lost on my narrow eyes.
