Of all the Bond girls to appear in a half-century of 007 films, Ursula Andress, as Honey Ryder in Dr. No, made the sexiest entrance—rising up from the surf wearing a belted bikini and a knife holster, her skin golden, and her eyelids painted a sublime bronze. Given that the year was 1962, one can only imagine what waxy concoctions the makeup artist applied to keep her face perfectly composed for take after sea-soaked take. But today’s water-resistant makeup is not only unbudgeable but also light on the skin and easy on the eyes. Our pick, Smashbox Cosmetics Limitless 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow in Riches, has a silky consistency and leaves such a stunning sheen, it’s almost enough to warrant a remake of Dr. No.
