Berenice Marlohe Works The Peacock Eye Trend At The Skyfall Premiere In London

25 October 2012 by

At the London premier of Skyfall the night before last (need to see it asap, don’t you?), we couldn’t believe it when brand new Bond Girl Berenice Marlohe turned up wearing the very same ‘peacock’ eye which we featured in last week’s issue.  What are the chances?! We can’t deny that we were left wondering whether the actress had in fact, been reading the mag and given the pictures to her makeup artist as a reference, so canny is the resemblance.

The ‘peacock eye’ trend first popped up on the autumn winter 2012 catwalks, where we bore witness to a whole host of takes on trend from London to Paris, New York and Milan. Make-up teams at Prada, Roberto Cavalli, John Galliano and Prabal Gurung all conjured up their own versions of the look, which had beauty editors swooning madly.  Miss Marlohe's take on the trend?  A very gorgeous, navy, burgundy, green and black blend which she paired with a red strapless gown and chandelier earrings.

While we were initially of the opinion that this particular look might be one of those trends that should be reserved soley for the model community, a speedy research session revealed that this is absolutely not the case – this beauty is in fact, surprisingly wearable.  When you know how, that is...

Luckily for you lovely lot, we just so happened to team up with our beauty shoot artist and international makeup maestro Maxine Leonard to produce a video taking you behind the scenes at the shoot and allowing you to hone your 'peacocky' application techniques while you are at it.  The pleasure’s all ours of course…

What do you think of Berenice’s Beauty look and would you be tempted to trial the trend?
