Would Anna use Clinique’s “even better eyes” to correct her dark circle? I don’t think so – whenever I suffer of my really dark eye shades, then I think of Anna Magnani, she is probably the most famous woman with dark shades under the eyes and this gave her that special Italian look! The more you hide something, the more it shows. But when you accept your defect, suddenly no one on earth sees it anymore. In fact, it becomes an asset.
Anna Magnani was a beauty that does not conform to the standard norm. Her allure and perfection lie not only in the appeal of her imperfections and the way they defy the standard rubric of prettiness, but also in the persistent presence of an inner life that informs her outer appearance.
“Please don’t retouch my wrinkles. It took me so long to earn them.” Anna Magnani
For your own personal Italian beauty style don’t stick to the beauty criteria of society and magazines, wear a lot of black and colours all your pictures in black and white as I did to get the vintage Magnani look on pictures.
