Throwback Thursday: Classic Beauty, Sophia Loren

This week, we honor classic beauty, Sophia Loren, as our Throwback Thursday.

An Italian bombshell, Loren's life changed drastically after entering a beauty contest when she was just 14. From then on, the gorgeous girl's life was never the same. The contest winner would soon become a leading lady in both Italian and American cinema. A regular face of the silver screen during the 1950's, 60's, and 70's, Sophia's star power endured the test of time and her legendary beauty has as well.

Loren embodied the makeup look of the 1960's. Lips were pale and cheeks were soft, leaving the real beauty moment to the eyes. Sophia's signature makeup look was her amazing cat eyes. Winged out to perfection, Loren's dramatic eye makeup is iconic to this day. Wanna steal Sophia's swag? Here's how to get the look.

Apply your check of base makeup to achieve a flawless look to skin. Now turn your attention to those peepers. Sophia kept eyes smoked out with super defined lashes and winged out liner that swept out and away to narrow her super sexy gaze.

Using gel eyeliner, follow the lash line beginning from the inside of the lash line, moving outward. Once you reach the end, take the liner a bit further go a little further slightly past the lashes. Thicken the look by reapplying the liner once more.

Now apply liner to the bottom lash line from the inside to the outer corners, connecting the line to the top. Check out our tips on how to create the perfect cat eye here. Curl lashes, coat on the mascara and you're the modern day Sophia Siren.
