Makeup artist Jake Bailey started by mixing Marlohe's own Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation ($55) with Lancome's La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer ($42) and applied it with a brush to moisturized skin. To set the base, he dusted on Guerlain's Les Voilettes Loose Powder ($57) in 03 Beige Natural and Nars' Bronzing Powder ($34) in Casino. "Sweep bronzer under the cheekbones and along the hairline with a brush to add dimension," Bailey says.
Bailey applied Ben Nye Professional Crème Color ($12) in Light Auguste over Marlohe's whole cheek area with a large powder brush for a lasting flush. "A lot of cream blushes are too sticky or sheer," he says. "But this one is kind of like a coral-colored foundation."
A sultry eye was the focus of the look, so Bailey lined the entire lash line with Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($19) in Perversion, dragging the color up the lid all the way to the crease. "You have to blend it really quickly because it sets fast," he says. He used a cone-shaped eye shadow brush to blur the edges for a smoky effect, then set it with Nars' Single Eye Shadow ($24) in Daphne. The next trick was Marlohe's idea: he applied the actress' own red shimmery eye shadow--so old it didn't have a label anymore--on the crease and inner corners of her eyes. "I was hesitant, but it blended really beautifully with the purple and black," Bailey says. (For a similar look try Stila Eye Shadow ($18) in Terracotta.) A few coats of Covergirl LashBlast 24Hr Mascara ($8) in Very Black on the top and bottom lashes finished the actress' eyes.
Bailey prepped Marlohe's lips with By Terry Baume de Rose ($60), giving it a few minutes to soak in. Then he used Kevyn Aucoin's The Elegant Lip Gloss ($27) in Vesuvian--a shimmery nude that's "somewhere between a gloss and a lipstick."
Hairstylist Giannandrea prepped Marlohe's wet hair with Kerastase Resistance Volumactive Amplifying Perfecting Mousse ($34) before blow-drying with a round boar-bristle brush for volume. "I wanted the crown area to have height," he says. Then he used a one-inch curling iron to "slightly twist each section before wrapping it around the iron to get a waved result." A light mist of Biolage by Matrix Styling Freeze Fix Hair Spray ($14) was next, followed by Ecru New York's Silk Nectar Serum ($33) to give shine and fullness. The finishing touch? He swept the actress' hair to one side and pinned it with three large bobby pins. "I kept a few long bang pieces loose in the front to frame the face and give that feeling of sexiness," he says. Our verdict: she's all set for a cocktail with Bond, James Bond.
