“Bond, I’m going to need you to be on your toes for this next assignment. This group is very dangerous.”
“Whatever you say, M.”
“I’m serious, Bond. Cat ladies are the real deal. They’ve been known to actually persuade spies to abandon their missions and join the cat crusade. They will not stop until the world goes full-on feline!”
“So…does that mean I have to keep my paws to myself?”
Yeah, so if the curmudgeonly cat lady thing doesn’t pan out for me over the next couple of years, I might just become a full-time, self-employed Bond girl. Seriously! I’d have no problem slinking around the house by myself all day long looking all mysterious and sultry like Sévérine, the Bond girl from Skyfall, the latest installment in the series.
I’d be totally fine with that.
In the movie, which opens this Friday across North America, Sévérine is played by French actress Bérénice Marlohe. I’ve forbidden myself from reading any spoilers, even though I desperately want to (just two more days!), but movie stills are okay, especially when the makeup, hair and nails are to die for, like they are in these pics of Sévérine.
Ooh, I that gray eye look… It’s kinda smokey, and I dig the cat eye shape.
See how the shadow slightly wings out at the ends? I feel like it elongates the eye. Oh, and peep the inner corners, and how her eyeshadow tracks her tear duct, ending in a slightly pointed tip. Makes it look even more feline, meow!
I was really inspired today by Sévérine’s look, so I thought I’d give it a try this afternoon and wear it with OPI’s dark plummy red Skyfall nail polish.
