Woman of mystery Eva Green, who stars in a major hair campaign for L’Oréal, shares her secrets

With her inky cascading over pale shoulders, Eva Green—famous for her role as James Bond’s one true love Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale—is becoming the go-to leading lady for all things brooding. Early next year, she’ll play the title character in macabre master Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children; next May she returns as the demon-tormented Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful’s third season. And now, L’Oréal Professionnel has tapped the French actress as its spokesperson for a new intensive hair treatment range. “It’s a revolution,” she says, wearing a long black dress, obsidian nail polish and smudgy kohl eyeshadow during the launch at the Le Meurice hotel in Paris. “It takes your hair from f-cked up to beautiful, strong, healthy.” The taxidermy-collecting star fits into Burton’s quirky world quite honestly. Unafraid of ghosts and ghouls, here’s what really causes her fright: “Not being loved…being rejected,” she says, revealing a tender truth beneath the dark facade.

Green’s Gothic Beauty Tips
Go Deep: “As a teenager, I was dark blonde. I was going through a shy phase, and I wanted to change something. My mum’s friend had black hair, and I decided to try it. I feel now that it’s more me.”
Do Blood Red: “I love M.A.C Lady Danger lipstick for all occasions. The matte finish lasts for hours.”
Shun the Sun: “I never go out without an SPF of at least 30. It’s the key to dodging aging.”

Resurrect damaged hair with the latest regenerating treatment
After 15 years of research, L’Oréal Professionnel has finally solved the beauty world’s mane dilemma: how to make a pricey reparative salon treatment last beyond your next wash. Pro Fiber’s molecular mix, dubbed APTYL 100, rebuilds frayed strands and then seals itself inside hair with a protective film. After your initial spa-style pampering using one of three hair-care systems (Revive, Restore or Reconstruct), a for-pros-only dose of the juiced-up activator locks in smoothness for up to four washes. An at-home five-piece range includes a booster that recharges results for another four-wash cycle, with lustre that lasts six weeks—until your next appointment.

Eva Green’s skin didn’t fare well in the harsh Irish winter.

The French actress is playing Miss Peregrine in Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which hits cinema screens next year.

Tim is known for his kooky plots and visuals, and Eva’s hair will not disappoint.

“The role I’m playing now is quite cool. My hair is kind of bonkers. It’s a 40s style with a twist. I also loved my look in another movie I starred in, called Cracks. It’s set in the 30s – all high-waisted pants and bobbed hair,” she told the British version of Marie Claire.

Eva is used to having her hair styled and her make-up applied on set, and she looks equally as glamorous when she hits the red carpet.

Not all of her projects have been as kind on the 35-year-old’s looks though. She’s known for her alabaster skin, which looks extra striking next to her raven locks, but while filming hit TV show Penny Dreadful her skin took a bit of a beating.

“Filming in Ireland last winter really took its toll on my skin,” she revealed. “I rely on a good, fragrance-free make-up remover from Cetaphil or Avène and apply a cold cream to replenish my skin. I always wear SPF, but find factor 50 is too pale and thick, so I use SkinCeuticals Brightening UV Defense SPF 30. I love Sisley’s treatments, too.

“Make-up can be dangerous when you have pale skin – sometimes I can look like Morticia Addams!”

Penny Dreadful’s Key Prosthetic Make-Up Artist Sarita Allison is a double BAFTA winner and a fan favorite among Dreadfuls. Interactive, mysterious and gracious to fans, each Dreadful awaits in bated breath for her social media updates on what’s happening on set of the show. While in the middle of production for season 3, we caught up with Sarita for an exclusive interview to chat about her career, Penny Dreadful and working with Eva Green. Get to know the London-based genius behind The Creature, Witches and The Werewolf as she takes us behind the scenes of the show and tell us what to expect on season 3…
 
 
A lot of Penny Dreadful fans already know you by name but could you tell us more about yourself?
 
I am the Key Prosthetic Make-Up Artist on Penny Dreadful and I work closely alongside Nick Dudman, the HOD. I apply the prosthetic makeups with Nick or by myself with the exception of Sembene’s facial scarring which is done by the make-up department.
 
The design and look of the characters is a collaboration between Nick and I. The final look and maintenance of the actors on set is all part of my job. I am a Make-Up Designer in my own right and I have the versatility of also being a beauty make-up artist. That skill has proven extremely beneficial whilst working on Penny Dreadful. Nick wanted someone to work with him who had that versatility because we were not creating rubber monsters. We were creating characters. I am incredibly passionate about my work and always strive to improve and be the best I possibly can. Trying to have a work / life balance is really important as this type of job can all consume if you allow it. Practicing yoga is part of my life and helps me focus and switch off from work at the same time.

Patti LuPone is back for more “Penny Dreadful.”

The Broadway legend, who guest starred as Joan Clayton (aka the Cut-Wife) in the sophomore season of Showtime’s Victorian England-set horror series, is back for season 3 as a series regular. She’ll also be playing a new role: Dr. Seward, an American therapist who treats Eva Green’s bewitching Vanessa Ives with an unconventional new approach.

The third season, which returns in 2016 with nine episodes, will also be adding another familiar name to the list of literary characters who appear on the show. Shazad Latif (“The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) will play an interpretation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll.

“Penny Dreadful” has also added Wes Studi as a series regular. The “Hell on Wheels” and “Red Road” alum plays Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett). He also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton).

Guest stars also include Christian Camargo as Dr. Alexander Sweet, a zoologist who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vanessa; Sam Barnett as Dr. Seward’s mysterious young secretary; and Jessica Barden as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney).

“Penny Dreadful” is created, written and executive produced by John Logan and executive produced by Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris, both of Neal Street Productions. It is a co-production of Showtime and Sky.
