Sophia Loren Inspired makeup

Hello chicas! (and guys)

I did a tutorial for you inspired by one of my favorite Italian actresses, Sophia Loren.
She needs no introduction since shes a legend. Famous for her timeless beauty, curvaceous Italian body and a true talent for acting (academy award and Oscar winning).
I did a makeup look which has the key elements to her signature look..hope you guys like it!
She shot to fame in the late 50s and has been an icon ever since. Her makeup always is immaculate, sexy sultry and very feminine. Known for her smoky, cat like eyes and luscious lips. 
Key elements were matte skin, bronze eyes and defined thick cat liner. Lips were matte too with a little bit of a sheen.

What I used

Smashbox photo finish primer
Graftobian HD creme foundation
Graftobian invisible set powder
Nyx Blush
MAC emote blush (contour)

88 warm palette by coastal scents (diff shades of brown)
Highlight color from palette
MAC smolder pencil
Kryolan black cake eyeliner
Smashbox brow tech

Rimmel 1000 kiss lip liner in "Tiramisu"
MAC myth lipstick
Clear gloss

I loved the fact back then being a woman meant having curves and it wasn't considered "plus size"...she was often called "the Italian Marlyn Monroe" Stunning!

Enjoy and let me know what you think!
Ciao bella's!
