All About Eva

-------


Eva Mendes is having a big beauty year. The Cuban-American stunner has been signed by both Pantene and Parfums Thierry Mugler. But campaign coups aside, Mendes’ personal beauty routine isn’t all that glam. “I’m low-maintenance when I’m on my own, in the regular day to day,” she says. That translates to a regimen heavy on green-leaning favorites and a choice selection of products from her skincare guru Dr. Nicholas V. Perricone. “I totally drank the Kool-Aid,” she says of the renowned clinical dermatologist’s neuropeptide philosophy. There’s one thing you’ll never find in Mendes’ makeup bag, though, and that’s lip gloss. “I think when having a certain shape of mouth—like the one I have—gloss does not look chic. Therefore, I stay the hell away from it.” Click here to find out what she does keep close at hand.
