We’re celebrating Italian film goddess Sophia Loren on her birthday by recreating three of her most showstopping makeup looks.

Shop our favorite products for channeling her bold brows, stunning cat eye and perfectly pigmented pout.
The Bold Cat Eye
After you've applied foundation, hide dark circles with a creamy concealer to make your eyes pop. Starting at the inner corner of eyes, follow the lash line with a liquid liner and extend up and out toward the end of your brows. With an eyeliner pencil, line the lower lashes, starting at the outside corners and stopping three-quarters of the way in. Apply a set of false lashes and coat with a few swipes of mascara. Finish off the look with a soft-colored blush on the cheekbones and a nude lipstick.

The Strong Brow
For the perfect brow, use a sharp eyebrow pencil to create a high arch and define the inner corners. Fill in any patchy areas with an angled brush and a pressed powder. Comb through with a spooley brush and set with a clear eyebrow gel. For a true-to-Sophia look, swipe a coral blush on the cheeks and polish off the look with a bold red lip. Choose a liner one shade darker than your lipstick to add dimension and create a bombshell pout.

The Fresh Face
This encapsulates muted versions of all Sofia's most notable looks. Create a subtle cat eye with a pencil eyeliner, starting three-quarters of the way out from the inner corner and drawing a subtle wing. Curl lashes and apply mascara focusing on the outer corners. Groom brows with an eyebrow powder and a clear gel. Finish with a coral lipstick and add a youthful touch with sheer gloss. Apply a peach blush to the apples of cheeks, dragging out and up toward the temples.
