Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria is featured on the cover of InStyle magazine’s July 2011 issue. Inside, Eva discusses learning about makeup, her must-have beauty items, and her tips for women with petite figures.
On learning about makeup: “I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup when I was young. I would melt crayons and try to put them on my lips, and I would use watercolors for eye shadow.”
On her must-have beauty items: “Mascara is very important. If I were on a desert island, I would have to have mascara and lip balm. I’m naturally tan, but I like to use a bronzing powder or something to make my skin look shimmery.”
Her tips for women with petite figures: “High heels. I love all designer shoes. There’s this pair in my closet by Versace, and they must be 8 inches—crazy tall! I once tried to count how many I had. All I know is that I just donated 60 pairs.”
