Sometimes they're naughty, sometimes they're nice, but Bond girls are always beautiful and seductive. The women can be toting guns with very little makeup in one scene or all dolled up for a glamorous night out in the next (and even at times a bit . . . ahem, disheveled). The film franchise celebrates 50 years with the release of Skyfall this week, and the newest women in 007's life are just as sultry as expected. Get tips to capture the classic beauty look from James Bond's many leading ladies past and present.
The franchise is known for signing on international beauties like Swiss actress Ursula Andress. As the first Bond girl in Dr. No, Ursula epitomizes the total package. But what many remember most is her hair. Whether wet or dry, Ursula's blond strands are always perfectly windblown and sun-kissed.
In From Russia With Love, Daniela Bianchi sports come-hither bedroom eyes. You'll need false eyelashes to get this wide-eyed look. Concentrate on placing individual lashes on the outer edges for lift — and feel free to flutter often.
Diana Rigg's oversize bun and slicked-down tendrils in On Her Majesty's Secret Service may be the best Bond updo yet. And her flawless complexion is just one more thing to envy.
Grace Jones may be on the wrong side of the law in A View to a Kill, but her smoky eyes are to die for. Even though this film is from the '80s, her angular eye shadow is back in trend this season.
As one of the rare short-haired Bond girls, Carey Lowell stands out with a sultry, cherry-red lip color that has become a signature in 007 pictures. Get her look from A License to Kill by lining your entire lips with a pencil liner, finishing with a brick-red hue on top.
You never know where you'll end up when you're running with the likes of James Bond. Take Michelle Yeoh in Tomorrow Never Dies, a gun-toting professional who is ready for anything in natural makeup and a serious-business ponytail.
In Casino Royale, Eva Green simmers in a bold red lipstick and smudged eyeliner. You can get similar eye makeup by lining eyes with a soft pencil, then using your fingers or a brush to smear the lines.
Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe
The latest 007 girls already have the Bond look down pat. Naomie Harris (left) glows with a natural complexion and flowing curls, while Bérénice Marlohe (right) embodies the more sultry side of the spectrum with a vivid smoky eye and tousled updo.
