How I Did The Skyfall Bond Girl Inspired Makeup Look

How I Did The Skyfall Bond Girl Inspired Makeup Look

I love Bond movies and one of the things I like the most about Bond Movies is to see the Bond Girls’ looks! In fact, seeing what the Bond Girls are wearing and how they do their hair and makeup is sometimes my favourite parts of the movies! … I saw Skyfall about two weeks ago on the opening night here in South Africa and actress Bérénice Marlohe who played the Bond Girl ‘Severine’ definitely did NOT disappoint! I was in complete ‘awe’ of how absolutely stunning she looked! …  Everything from her gorgeous gown to her hair and of course … her makeup!  She had an absolutely gorgeous sultry version of a ‘reverse smoky eye’ which is a huge makeup trend for 2013 and is a perfect look for holiday parties! So of course I had to try it! This is how I got the look.Smile

Get the Spring/Summer Neon Lips Trend and Super Soft Lips Thanks to This Lipstick!

Although Spring has officially started here in South Africa, the weather in Cape Town doesn’t seem to be reflecting it quite yet… Which means wearing spring clothing is not really working for me (I hate feeling cold!).
