Immortal Muse- Sophia Loren
Sophia Loren is the ultimate femme fatale with her iconic feline eyes and fabulous curves, she's entranced men and women for decades.
Born in 1934, she’s graced the big screen for over 50 years, featuring in over 100 films.
Now 76 Loren still sizzles with power and beauty.
My make-up tips for creating Sophia Loren's iconic look.
Loren's eyes are the most important feature of this look. She tended to use matt warm browns to accentuate the shape of her eye and blend with her bronzer look.
Eye shadow-Apply dark warm eye shadow to outer edge (folie- shadow). Then blend over and through the crease with a mid-tone a two shades darker than skin tone (wedge shadow). The mid-tone will blend out the darker shadow creating a seamless appearance.
Liner- I use gel based liner (blacktrack- fluidline) making sure to keep the angle lifted. I tend to follow the line of the bottom lash line. Tip- use cotton bud and (fast response- eye cream) to sharpen line or erase.
Draw a line on the bottom lash line but leave a small gap on the outer corner of the eye as this will make your eye appear more feline and elongated. Then draw a brightening pencil in the waterline (Chromagraphic- Pencil)
Brows- Comb brows up for a fuller shape. But don’t over draw them or make them too dark, try eye shadow with an angle brush (omega- shadow/ 266 # brush). (Clear- brow set) to lock them in place.
Lashes- two pairs of (36# lashes) for full winged lashes that are not too long.
Changed the way women wanted their skin to look. Poles apart from 50's trend for pale matt full coverage foundation. Her skin is sun kissed and contoured with a velvet texture.
(Face and body- foundation), (studio finish-concealer) then set with (mineralize skinfinsh).
Contour using matt shade a few shades darker than skin tone- I use (Harmony- blusher) or for fair skin (kid- eye shadow). Tip- use contour brush (168#) from top of the ear to corner of mouth.
(Sublime Culture- lip liner) buffed all over the lip then (freckletone- lipstick)
