How-To: Eva's Happy Hearts Makeup Look

How-To: Eva's Happy Hearts Makeup Look

At the Happy Hearts charity benefit hosted by Petra Nemcova, Eva Mendes showed up looking absolutely gorgeous. She's the kind of gal you want to hate for being so effortlessly beautiful, but she's so sweet and goofy that you can't help but love her.

Her glowing skin was a perfect contrast to her flowy white gown, her pink lips added life to her bright smile, and her slightly smoky eyes dressed up her look for evening. And let's not forget the perfectly groomed strong brows that give definition to the frame of her face.

For product suggestions and instructions on how to create this look at home,

  • FACE: Apply something like this amazingly natural looking Vincent Longo Liquid Canvas Dew Finish Foundation SPF 15 in Natural over a touch of concealer to brighten any dark or red areas gives skin coverage and a dewy effect.
  • CHEEKS: Next, apply a peachy, coral or apricot color to your cheeks such as Nars Blush in Gilda. Glide the blush brush over the apples of your cheeks sweeping upwards toward your hairline. This matte coral powder shade gives a warm glow to golden, olive skin.
  • EYES: Since the eyes are the focus of this look, you can err on the side of dramatic if you wish. This Guerlain Divinora Radiant Colour Palette in Touche de Brume is a small palette that contains four different powder shadows. When they are all used together, they create a fierce smokey eye. Use the iridescent pearl under the brow bone, the discreet taupe all over the lid, the hazy grey in the crease and the glittery black as an eye liner —concentrating more on a heavier liner on your upper lashes. Finish with two coats of black mascara and you'll look smokin' hot!
  • LIPS: I love this lipstick choice on Eva. It's not too heavy and not too bland. Lancome Color Fever Shine Lipstick in Tempt Me is a sheer lipstick with kind of a glossy finish. This neutral pink gives you just the right amount of shiny color punch.
