Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria is on the cover of Allure magazine’s April 2011 issue. Inside, she talks about being racy in past interviews: “It’s hard for me to censor myself, because I like to be honest and free and say exactly what I’m thinking or feeling. Unfortunately, so many things are taken out of context, and [now] I’m a little more cautious about what I say.”
She also discusses why she is proud of Desperate Housewives: “Desperate Housewives was groundbreaking for Latinos in television because the Solises were the richest people on the block – and they’re Mexican.”
Meanwhile, makeup artist Stephane Marais discusses the look he put together for the cover shoot: “I wanted to make her look incredibly sexy, like Sophia Loren,” said Marais, who focused on Eva’s eyes. After filling in Eva’s brows and creating a strong arch, Marais blended a shimmery bronze shadow all over her lids. He combed on a lot of mascara and glued on individual false lashes. “She’s a lashes freak—the more I added, the happier she was,” he says. Next, he contoured Longoria’s cheeks with bronzer and applied an apricot blush before swiping on creamy beige lipstick to finish the look. For more, head to Allure.com.
