I was recently surfing Pinterest and got on a spree where I was looking up all of Sophia Loren's old photos. She had some really interesting looks, so I decided to shoot a Sophia Loren inspired makeup tutorial for you guys! She must've been the original queen of the cat eye. She definitely had a unique makeup style that was like no other.
My recreation of her look is very dramatic, but I had so much fun doing it and hope you like it! I always love trying something new.

I've added some close up shots of the eye makeup below. I really loved using The Smokey Eyeshadow Palette from NYX! It's such a pretty look for a great low price, and NYX is easily one of my favorite drugstore makeup brands.
Thanks for checking out my look! I know it's way too unique for everyday, but wouldn't it be fun for a party? If you have any questions about it, just let me know in the comments.
