Skyfall James Bond 007 - Severine Makeup Inspiration

I went to watch to watch the new James Bond movie last Friday with a few of my friends. Can you believe it was the first Bond movie I've ever seen? The Bond girl in the movie is named Severine, and I was enamored by how beautiful her makeup was in one of the scenes. I was inspired to try out the look and surprisingly this is also one of the fall/winter trends. Just to preface like any previous makeup inspiration, I'm not saying that I look like her (though I would love to be) or copying her makeup right down to the very last bit.


Severine's makeup is very bold with a black cat-like smokey eye and a dark burgundy/purple lip. The rest of her makeup is matte with some contour on the cheeks and a natural looking blush. I personally love this makeup look and anyone can rock this just as long as they have the confidence to wear it.

Tips for the cat-like black smokey eye:
- pack the lid on with dark grey/black eyeshadow and make sure not to go past your socket bone.
- grab a slanted brush w/ black eyeshadow and carve out the half moon crescent shape on your lid and socket bone. (Since my eye is hooded, for it to become visible I had to go PAST my socket bone so when my eyes are open the shape is seen.)
- take the slanted brush with black eyeshadow and form a line from the end of your eye and connect it with the half-moon crescent shape that you formed on your lid.
- line your lowerlid with black eyeshadow and connect it to the line formed at the end of the eye.
- blend the black eyeshadow on your lid very lightly, making sure the cat eye in the end is still sharp.

Hope these tips help!
Until Next Time! :)
