Killing Eve star Jodie Comer’s latest film project may have been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the actress still has plenty of work to shout about – from season three of the show’s release to her first-ever beauty campaign.
The 27-year-old star, who comes from Liverpool, has been named as the new face of the high-end skincare brand Noble Panacea, which was founded by the 2016 Nobel Prize winner for chemistry in 2016.
And for her debut shoot for the brand, Jodie partnered with photographer Alexi Lubomirski – the man famous for taking wedding and engagement photos of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The image shows Jodie flaunting a radiant complexion, with minimal makeup – a look delivered by famed artist Hung Vanngo, posing in a simple white button-down shirt hung from one shoulder.
Her hair, meanwhile, was swept into a perfectly tousled updo by famed stylist Harry Josh – completing the actress’s perfectly undone look and putting her perfect skin at the center of the shot.

But while Jodie now wears the no-makeup look so well, she admits that the barely-there style wasn’t something she always felt comfortable embracing – quite the contrary.
Speaking about her new role as Noble Panacea, which was founded last year by Scottish chemist Sir Fraser Stoddart, Jodie revealed that, as a teenager growing up in Liverpool, her favorite beauty look was all about glamor makeup , which she admits she had had enough.
“I don’t know if you’re familiar with Liverpool, where I come from, but Liverpool is the city of glamor,” she said Vanity Fair, While she remembered how she always went over the top for every occasion, from a ‘curly stroke’ in the hair salon to perfecting her glitzy makeup look, complete with dark eyeliner and very striking brows.
“I look back at pictures of myself, and I’m like, ‘Whoa! She added to the publication. I respect my parents for letting me go through with it! ‘
But things have certainly changed since then; Today, Jodie says she is much more focused on a less-is-more approach to beauty – something that is in line with Noble Panacea’s own ethos, which focuses on a sustainable and restrained offering.

“I’m so excited about this partnership with Noble Panacea and this is the beginning of the journey,” Jodie said of her new role.
“The brand is so progressive and it’s great to think of where they can lead. Beauty is more than aesthetics. So much science and research has been done into making Noble Panacea products.
“The brand is authentic and innovative and I think it will inspire many people to think differently about what they buy and consume.

“Ultimately, I believe in the integrity of the brand. In return, the team believes in me, which is very encouraging and an example of what Noble Panacea stands for. ‘
When it comes to her top picks from the brand – which packs the products of its two lines, The Absolute and The Brilliant, in one-time, TerraCycle-friendly recyclable packaging – Jodie has a clear favorite: the Overnight Recharge Cream ($ 232) from the Brilliant line.
But that’s not all Jodie relies on to keep her skin in top shape, revealing to Allure that she also drinks ‘lots of water’, and admits she thinks it’s ‘the key to everything’.
Jodie has certainly had enough time in recent weeks to focus on her skincare program, while – like so many others around the world – have been quarantined due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier this week, the asterisk revealed she was watching movies she hadn’t seen ‘ashamed’ while eating chocolate for breakfast and crunchy buttocks – sandwiches filled with chips – for lunch.

The star also revealed that Fergie’s 2006 hit ‘Fergalicious’ was her favorite song to sing when she needed to be picked up for an afternoon while she was in isolation.
Jodie said Fashion how she spends her time saying, “I look at a long list of movies that I found as an actress too embarrassed to admit I haven’t seen them.”
The talented actress also revealed that she chews on ‘a bag of Revels’ for breakfast and ‘crinkle cut crisp butties’ for lunch.
Jodie also gave her advice to others on how to get through the lockdown and said, “Move your body as much as you can and keep in touch with loved ones.”
It was recently announced that series three of Killing Eve will be released on BBC America in the US two weeks ahead of schedule.
The hit thriller took to Twitter to reveal that the third season is now debuting on Sunday, April 12, when they unveiled a new explosive trailer.
Still, British viewers were disappointed by the news, as a release date in the UK is still unknown, with fans speculating it could be June.
