The 007 Countdown (Esperanza Guide Pt. 4)

It's time, agents. Your mission begins in just two days...are you ready?

I'm sure all you Bond ladies already have your espionage ensembles lined up and ready to go (if you don't, check out 6100 blogger Danielle's guide to femme fatale fashion), but before you embark on your journey to Esperanza, let us send you off with 7 last-minute makeup tips and tricks to ensure your night is a success:


007.A LOOK TO KILL:BALANCING YOUR COLOR PALETTE Everything is about balance. One rule I personally swear by is highlighting only one facial feature at a time. For example, the classic combo I always opt for is a dramatic smokey eye balanced by a neutral or nude lip.
