Bond Girl Series: Ursula Andress


It was a little tricky to find close up shots of Ursula as Honey Ryder from the James Bond movie Dr No
I watched the film clip (below) so many times that I am still singing 'underneath the mango tree'.


The skin is a very important part of this look, as Honey had just emerged from the sea the skin needs to look dewy, healthy but also utterly flawless. 
I chose Nars Sheer Glow foundation and Bobbi Brown Peach Corrector to achieve that payoff.
.
 I then set about creating a soft contour, again using creams, the Ben Nye Creme Contours and Highlights work perfectly and are amazing to work with, I combined these with Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Chic on the cheek bone to create the perfect sixties peachy cheek.

Finally, I cut in with Givenchy Mister Light Corrective Pen to create a subtle highlight on the high points of the face and along the nose and Givenchy Le Prisme Powder to set concealer under the eyes and take out shine in unflattering areas (around nose and under eyes).
