Lucky Eva Longoria had not one but two bridal showers. Poor gal is going to be stuck at home for the next decade writing thank you notes. (Actually, she probably has someone to do that for her.) One thing I'll say about Longoria is that she is not afraid to wear lots of makeup, and the fresh, polished face she showed off at her Felicity Huffman-hosted shower is no exception.
Did you notice her hairstylist Ken Paves at the shower? I hope that Tony understands just how seriously this gal takes her beauty. (My husband has yet to concede to a dinner with my colorist.)

- Face: To achieve a gorgeous complexion like Longoria's, you'll want a foundation with moderate coverage in a tan-to-medium color. I really like La Bella Donna Compressed Mineral Foundation in Sophia followed by the brand's Loose Mineral Foundation in the same shade. These products also contain SPF, which is great if your shower is outdoors.
- Cheeks: To replicate this bronzed glow, start with a matte bronzer (that means sans shimmer) such as Baked Pyramid in Baked Bronze by Physician's Formula. Then add a touch of pinkish-brown blush and highlighter combo, like the one from Beauty Addicts in MotivateCheeks.
- Eyes: Eva wears a lot of shadow and always has the most perfect lush lashes. I really love the Beauty Addicts ExpressEyes palette, which can be layered for a dramatic smoky eye for daytime, since the colors are in the brown and gold family. Don't neglect your brows, and I doubt I have to remind you to apply two coats of black or deep brown mascara.
- Lips: Longoria gets away with bold eyes because her lips are nude yet polished. Try lining lips with a natural lip liner, then apply Nars Lipstick in Blonde Venus with a lip brush. Top off the look with a sheer gloss such as NARS Lip Lacquer in Baby Doll.
