How To Do Sophia Loren's Eyeliner

How-To: Do It Like Loren

...and Padma and even Anne. In the most recent issue of Allure, I read a cool tip that Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi follows to create Sophia Loren-esque eyes. First, she starts by applying some black eyeliner to her lash line, then adds a blue liner on top. Simple, easy, and sexy — a classic look.

Usually, having any black and blue anywhere on my body is something I try to avoid, but we're talking Sophia Loren here, so I just had to try to duplicate this look. I began by drawing a winged out, heavy-on-the-outer-corners black line, then smudged on a deep navy liner powder. The results were dramatic, trendy, and oh-so 1960s chic.

Check out my list below to see what middle-priced liners I used. I've also included some drugstore and department store finds to guide you on achieving this look:

That is so funny! I've been living in Rome, Italy for the past month, and I've noticed a similar look on many women here... I've been trying a muted version with black liner and brown shadow on top - foxy and yet somehow soft, too!

Nifty! I've seen models have that look in photos from the '60s, and I never would have thought to try it.
