As someone who gets glammed by professionals often, Eva Mendes is no newbie in the makeup department. The actress and new mom has picked up a few timeless tips to use on herself at home — hacks we obviously want to steal. We sat down with Eva recently to chat all things makeup, and she revealed her unique method for adding that rosy glow to her skin. "Once I came to terms with the fact that I have a long face, I realized you have to do your makeup for your face shape," she explained. "A makeup artist told me it's better for me to apply blush across the nose because it breaks up the face." It's that kind of know-how that makes Eva qualified to start her own beauty business.

For Circa Beauty, Eva is much more than just a pretty face posing in poster ads. She had an instrumental role in designing the drugstore cosmetics collection alongside beauty industry manufacturer Maesa. And the proof is in the wide range of colors available to match several skin tones. The 26-piece spread has an array of bright lipstick shades, glittering mascaras, liquid liners, illuminating pens, and foundation shades, which will be available exclusively in Walgreens stores this March. So the next time you're cruising the drugstore aisle, you can pick up Eva's favorite cream blush hue, Portofino. Source: Getty/Charles Bladen
