Bond Girls

When it comes to living a adventurous, sexy life, no one comes close to 007's endless parade of love interests. Whether they're shooting villains or sipping cocktails, they always look magnificent. So in honor of Bond's 50th anniversary, and the newest installment of the film, Skyfall, we've broken down three sultry looks you can master. International Man of Mystery not included.Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder
No one will ever emerge from the ocean quite like Ursula Andress, the first Bond girl to grace the silver screen as Honey Ryder in 1962's Dr. No--a role that earned her a Golden Globe and a permanent title as international sex symbol. The Swiss-American actress played an ocean diver hunting for shells off the shore of Jamaica. Instead, she found Bond's attention, an evil doctor, and plenty of adventure. To score her look, start with tanned skin--an Infinity Sun Spray Tan will work perfectly--or if you're already on a small island make sure you pack Sephora's Tinted Self-Tanning Body Mist ($15). You can get wet, piecey hair the old-fashioned way--a sexy, post-swim flip--or by tousling just-washed locks and smoothing in a generous amount of TIGI's Catwalk Session Wet Look Gel ($17). Smooth on a sunscreen-infused BB cream like 3LAB's Perfect BB Cream ($95) and a quick swipe of Maybelline's Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara ($7) in Brownish Black. Coral lipstick shines against tan skin, so apply Smashbox's Be Legendary Lipstick ($19) in Melondrama and slip the tube into your bikini top for touch-ups.

Talisa Soto as Lupe Lamora
If you're more of a landlocked girl, try Talisa Soto's face-framing bold brows and strong lips from 1989's Licence to Kill. The model/actress plays Lupe Lamora, the girlfriend of a drug-smuggling villain who's seduced onto the good side by 007. Get flawless skin with Make Up For Ever's HD Invisible Cover Foundation ($42) before filling in brows with a heavy hand using Hourglass' Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil ($32) in Dark Brown and setting with Anastasia's Brow Fix ($21). Line lips with Buxom's Big and Healthy Lip Stick ($19) in Barcelona for matte texture and serious staying power--which you'll need for that all-night plotting against your evil boyfriend.

Eva Green as Vesper Lynd
For a more modern take, follow Eva Green's lead--the 2006 Casino Royale star plays Vesper Lynd, Bond's hauntingly beautiful love interest twisted in a high-stakes game of blackjack and crime. A Bond girl wouldn't waste time in a salon, so for a perfect updo start by making big curls with Conair's Infiniti Pro You Curl Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron ($35). Loosely twist hair into a chignon, and pin with Goody's Spin Pin ($7)--which can also come in handy picking locks later in the evening. You'll want your updo to survive a gun fight, so set with a heavy dose of Garnier Fructis' Ultra Strong Hold Hairspray ($5). Use YSL's Pure Chromatics Wet and Dry Eyeshadow Palette ($55) in No. 12 for a smoky eye, layering the colors for a deep, mysterious stare. A quick swipe of L'Oreal's Infallible Le Rouge Lipcolor ($10) in Ravishing Red lasts all night and won't rub off on your martini glass. No matter which vixen you want to channel, you'll be set for a wild adventure with the ultimate super agent!
