Allure — […] Growing up in Liverpool, Comer says it was a big deal to get dressed up with her friends. “I went through this period where I was just obsessed with makeup and I wore a ton of it, and then I suddenly realized how much I was wearing, and the fact that I was spending all this money,” she says. She also realized that she felt more comfortable when she wasn’t wearing makeup, and shifted her focus to skin- and self-care. But it’s not all or nothing for her. “I think now I’m just trying to be more comfortable with what I have rather than having to cover up,” she tells Allure. “But I do love putting makeup on for a night out.

Perhaps that’s why a partnership with Noble Panacea (her first) feels so natural to her. The brand, which was developed by a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, uses a new technology called Organic Molecular Vessels™ (OMVs™) that is said to “deliver active ingredients [in skin care] with extreme precision.” “I have to believe in it,” Comer says of her partnership, “and have to want to wear it myself and be proud of it. And I tried the products and just loved them.

Noble Panacea offers two lines, Absolute and Brilliance, and Comer uses the Brilliance line. “I am obsessed with the Overnight Recharge Cream. What I love is that you know your skin is getting the hydration. You might wake up with a dry mouth, but your skin is glowing,” she says. In addition to loving on her skin with good products, Comer says she also drinks “lots of water. I think water is the key to everything.

You know who I’m just obsessed with? Meryl Streep,” Comer says. Though she’s talking about her beauty inspiration, she could be making a more general statement and it would ring just as true. “I mean, throughout her whole life…she’s so beautiful, and just in such a simple and pure way.

Speaking of obsessions, she has one you might relate to (in particular, she’s a fan of Glossier’s Boy Brow). When asked about her favorite products ever, she says, “My number one is eyebrow gel. I can’t live without it.” She’s so serious about it that she often does it herself, even on set. “I could have no makeup on, but if I fix my brows…or when I’m on set, the one thing I want to do myself is my eyebrows,” she tells Allure. This is almost a two-for-one answer, because she has a bit of a hack, so listen up: Whenever Comer finds herself without eyebrow gel, she uses hairspray on a mascara spooley brush and swipes it on. But she’s quick to warn, “This is, like, when it’s desperate times.

[…] Comer doesn’t play just one role on Killing Eve; she plays a different role, or three, almost every episode. Sure, she’s always playing Villanelle, but she’s playing Villanelle as a nurse, or an inmate, or a teacher, and with each new persona comes a new look. Her favorite? “I’ve always wanted to have red or auburn hair, and we had that kind of wig in season two when I was playing this schoolteacher. I was obsessed with that look,” she recalls.

While Villanelle’s hair and outfits change regularly, depending on what her job calls for, it’s not like she’s putting on a prosthetic nose and ears or doing a lot of contouring to blend in. “We always had this thing of like, she doesn’t have time to sit and do her makeup,” says Comer. “I think she’s busy, and she has her priorities in different places.

Sometimes you’ll see Villanelle fresh-faced and simple, sometimes made up, and other times you’ll see her with a cut or a bruise, which Comer says is when she feels the most in the role. “It’s like the moment you have to be sexy or attractive onscreen, I become so self-conscious. Whereas if I’ve got no makeup on and I’ve got a bruise on my face, I’m like, ‘Let’s go.’ You know? But that’s just me.

British Vogue – For aspiring actors outside the M25, Jodie Comer’s rise to fame is the most exciting Tinseltown invasion since noted Brummie Julie Walters stormed the 1984 Oscars with Educating Rita. The past 12 months have shown how unstoppable the 26-year-old Liverpudlian is: she scored an Emmy and a BAFTA for her role as the charismatic televisual sociopath Villanelle in Killing Eve, and has a feverish millennial fan base backing her.

Comer was discovered, quite by accident, at age 12, when she read a dramatic monologue about the Hillsborough tragedy at a local theatre festival, and was cast in her first professional job not long after – a BBC Radio 4 play that paid £200. She has worked solidly ever since, whether on television or at Tesco in-between jobs, building a career without drama school or industry contacts (her father Jimmy is a sports massage therapist at Everton FC, her mother Donna works for Merseytravel).

Well, almost solidly. “I remember there was a year where I didn’t work for eight or nine months,” Comer tells British Vogue. “You get up in the morning, get yourself ready, get to the train station, two-hour train, get to your audition, you’re in there for 10 minutes, and then you’re coming all the way back home. Sometimes I was doing it three times a week. What I realised, the more that I wasn’t working, was that I stunk of desperation, basically. It became: ‘I need the job.’ And then you go into auditions and they can smell it.

She has since found her niche playing small-screen dynamos lacking empathy – from My Mad Fat Diary’s resident mean girl, Chloe, to Kate, the notorious other woman in Dr Foster. And of course, Villanelle in Killing Eve. What can we expect from season three? Will we get more glimpses into the assassin’s past? “We kind of delve into it a little bit,” she confirms. “The audience love what they love about her, but it’s been nice to show a different side to that. Maybe a little bit of vulnerability.

The conversation drifts to her life outside of work. In reality, she doesn’t have much time to go out and socialise with her schedule being what it is. Not a lot has been written about Comer and love, for example. But, “I’m very much in it,” she says. “I think love’s the best. I’d been single for a while and just kind of going with the flow and doing my thing. That’s the thing, isn’t it? When you’re relaxed and letting the universe do what it’s doing, things kind of fall into place. Which is very much what happened. Which is great.
