Can someone tell me how Lily Aldridge got access to a time machine? Because clearly she went back to 1958 and got Sophia Loren's makeup artist to dish, and then came back to 2013 to attend the Couture Council Awards this week looking like she just left the set of Houseboat.

The key to Italian-imported old Hollywood glamour is a little bit of bronzer, a little more liner, and a lot more brow. And no, you don't need a time machine to get it. Here's our three step advice:

BROW IT: Lancome Le Crayon Poudre - $25.50
Don't be afraid to go over--and over, and over--your brows. No skinny squiggles, okay?

LINE IT: Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black - $7.99
The key is to line your eyes first before making them just smokey enough. The genius of this pencil is that it comes with a smudger and is crazy easy to use.

BRONZE IT: Dolce & Gabbana The Bronzer Glow Bronzing Powder - $50
Yes, apply it to your cheeks--and then swipe it along your nose, across your forehead, and dotted on your chin for good measure. You can't go wrong with Dolce & Gabbana's version (they're Italian, after all)--and trust, it's way cheaper than a ticket to Sardinia.
