Eva Mendes has got it going on. She’s an A-list Hollywood actress, spokesperson for Pantene and girlfriend of hottie Ryan Gosling. Over Thanksgiving they were seen snuggling in Paris. Awww. Now that’s how to celebrate.
While we can’t put you in the movies or get you Ryan, we can tell you how Eva gets her look. For holiday parties, she says she loves a dark smoky eye and wisely pairs it with what she calls a “pinkish pale” lip. The two make a perfect combination.
On her face Eva loves Dr. Perricone No Foundation Foundation ($50) as her base. This smoothes, hydrates and has SPF but is light and translucent. She adds Thierry Mugler Mascara (only available overseas), Laura Mercier eyeshadow ($22) and Tom Ford Lipstick ($48 ). Try Mercier’s Baked eye color in Black Gold, which can be used wet or dry and the pale, pink toned Blush Nude shade from Ford’s very luxe Private Collection lipstick line.
Eva keeps her hair full and healthy with Pantene’s Pro-V Breakage to Strength products ($4-7) for medium to thick hair along with a touch of Pantene’s Split End Repair Crème to keep things smooth all night long.
Before putting on her evening wear, preferably something in a non-black color she says, Eva uses Mario Badescu products to get her skin glowing. Try their Summer Shine Lotion ($10) for moisture plus a sheer shimmer that’s sure to help your legs and decollete steal the show.
