“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.” Sophia Loren

When I look to Hollywood for fashion inspiration, 9 times out of 10 I turn to Old Hollywood stars.  Their looks are so pulled together and polished, and I love how they celebrated curvier, more hourglass body types.  Of course, the epitome of retro and hourglass is Sophia Loren, She is Such a remarkable beauty. Although she turned 77 years old but she hasn't lost any of her inner glow. Her smoldering presence and style are what defines her as a temptress and icon .

The1950's was all about pale skin, heavy eyeliner and bright red lips, but Italian Diva Sophia Loren sported a different approach to the way make-up was done. Whilst in keeping with the heavy use of eyeliner and contouring of the time, she played with softer skin tones and lips colours, bringing into fashion the use of bronzer, pinks and nudes. check   link below to get Sophia Loren 1960s inspired make-up
