Get The Look

SWAV recreates Eva Longoria-Parker's Look! Here's how we did it:

Eva Longoria-Parker

  • Start off with a clean, moisturized face!
  • Apply a light layer of foundation or mineral makeup, if necessary, just to even out your skin tone. Follow up with concealer for under your eyes or any spots you may have as well. CoverBlend by Exuviance is a nicely moisturizing concealer that will work great for this, but any good concealer will do.
  • Since Eva's look is glowy, there is no need to tone down any excess shine, unless you are oil-crazy. If that is the case, just dust a little bit on your T-zone and call it a day. MAC Blot Powder works well for this.
  • To get Eva's signature glowy tanned skin, try Benefit's Hoola bronzing powder, which gives a nice matte, tanned finish.
  • Now, move on to your eyes. Be sure to maintain your eyebrows, as they will frame this look. Tweeze or wax any unwanted hairs and then fill in with brow powder. If necessary, set with brow wax or gel. I like Benefit's BrowZings for this.
  • For the eyeshadow, start off with Urban Decay Primer Potion to hold your shadow in place all day, and then use a coppery shade over the entire lid (such as Stila Eye Shadow in Ray, or NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Penny).
  • Apply a thick layer of black liner to your top lid, being careful not to extend the line past the eye! MAC Fluidline (Blacktrack) gives you excellent wear and flexibility. Also, apply a thick line to the bottom lashes as well, be sure to smudge out for Eva's sultry lash look.
  • Now, apply a coat of Mascara, such as L'Oreal HIP, which will add dramatic volume and length to the top and bottom lashes. To pump up the look, you can add false lashes to your top lid and use mascara to blend.
  • Very lightly dust on a slight blush, such as Benefit's Thrrrob! box powder. You want the blush to be very faint, and only apply to the apples of your cheeks.
  • Now, use a highlighter, such as MAC Vanilla Pigment to accentuate your browbone and cheekbones. Smile pretty so you can see the apples of your cheeks as a guideline of where to apply the shimmer. It should just be faintly above this area, making a "C" shape between your cheek and brow area. This will give you Eva's fantastic golden glow!
  • Finish off the look with a pink liner applied all over your bottom lip, such as NYX's Barbie Pink, and coat with your gloss of choice. I love C.O. Bigelow's Lemon Lip Creme for a natural look.
Enjoy! Any questions or comments, feel free as always :)

Thanks girl! I know right, she's got like a flawless face. You can just tell her skin is in great shape, she even looks pretty good without makeup. (Different - but still good, if you've seen the pics, her eyes look a lot prettier with the dark makeup though)

I totally agree, she;s my favorite Desperate Housewife, plus she's down to earth, and so un-diva-like!! Adding to all of this, she's married to such a hot guy!!!! Tony Parker-the reason I got into bball :P

I know she loves L'Oreal's Voluminous Mascara, her signature lipstick L'Oreal Eva Caramel, and her eye shadow quad L'Oreal Eva Browns (for brown eyes)

Oh my gosh! I am completely a San Antonio Spurs fan myself, but not really because of Parker although he is great. I forgot about all of her L'Oreal! Thanks for mentioning :)

Yup, you should totally check out her lipstick and her quad that's available at CVS. I picked up Eva Browns and Aishwarya Greens, she's another favorite, plus I did a review of Aishwarya Greens on my blog. So you can see it there:) The colors are subtle, perfect for neutral days!! <3
