How to Do Your Makeup Like Eva Mendes

Her beautiful bone structure and a love of experimentation have made Eva Mendes a Hollywood beauty icon. Even if you weren’t blessed with Mendes’ strong, stunning features, you can still use these makeup tips to recreate her look.


Start this makeup look by applying a moisturizer to the face and dabbing some eye cream underneath the eyes.

Using a foundation brush, apply a cream foundation to the entire face to even out the skin tone. Using a foundation brush will provide extra coverage. Next, apply a concealer to any imperfections or to dark circles underneath the eyes. When working with bold colors, such as those found on Eva, it’s extra important to start out with a clear and even skin tone.

Gets the star’s natural-looking glow by applying a peach powder blush to the apples of your cheeks using a blush brush.


Start the eye makeup look by applying a nude shadow to the entire eyelid. Brush up and out to the crease and blend the shadow well. Next, take a bold-colored eye pencil (Eva opted for green), and draw a line as close to the upper lash line as possible. Smudge it using your fingers or a q-tip. Use the same pencil to draw another line as close to the lower lash line as possible, and inside the rim of the eye. Smudge it using your fingertips or a q-tip. Curl your lashes and apply several coats of black mascara to both the top and bottom lashes.


To balance out the makeup look, dab a bit of foundation on your lips to tone down your natural lip color. Then, apply a pale-pink lipstick using your fingertips or a lip brush for a more “stained” lip.

She's one of my favorites!! I love her style, and her makeup is always so natural and flawless. Can't believe she's dating Ryan Gosling. I think she's WAY out of his league haha. This comment has been removed.
I think the green was a good choice for her and I like her bold brows. This comment has been removed.
