How to: classic Eva Green in Casino Royale

I love a good Bond movie – I’ve been seeing them religiously since I was six and my dad sneaked me into one at our local movie theatre – and always love a Bond girl’s style. Totally saucy and just a little bit dangerous too, they always seem to have the best hair and makeup – as well as the best lines!
One of my favourite Bond girl makeup looks was that sported by the porcelain-skinned Eva Green as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale, which was totally classic and very wearable. Reportedly, Eva's love of dark, smoky eye make-up and red lipstick influenced much of the look of the character Vesper Lynd, but she was persuaded to warm her skin tone a little so she didn't look too vampy. Her looks throughout the movie ranged from natural and slightly vulnerable to sophisticated and mysterious, but my favourite must be her sexy evening look, seen here. To recreate this you need remarkably few products, and the official list of what you need is:
Foundation: Visiora MV Creme Face Makeup in #002
Concealer: Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Cream
Powder: M.A.C Blot Powder / Pressed in Medium
Blush: M.A.C Powder Blush in Frankly Scarlet
Eye Shadow: M.A.C Eye Shadow in Knight Devine
Eye Liner M.A.C Fluidline in Blacktrack
Mascara: Lancôme L'Extreme in Black
Lips: M.A.C Lip Pencil in Brick and M.A.C. Lipstick in Russian Red
Nails: Christian Dior Addict Vernis in Rose Ellipse
