Eva Longoria is just one of those in Hollywood who never seems to have an off-day when it comes to her beauty regimes.
The Desperate Housewives actress recently landed the cover of Glam Belleza Latina’s 2015 Spring issue, and she looks absolutely flawless as she rocks an au naturale look.
As she has worked hard in the last three years to strengthen Latin power in the U.S., by stepping away from our television and movie screens, it makes sense for Eva to nail the cover.
In the interview portion, Eva talks about her shift from acting on Desperate Housewives to becoming an activist and business woman, stating:
“I’ve always been business-minded. I worked in corporate America before becoming an actress and knew that acting wasn’t the end but a means to an end. It gave me the platform and the exposure I needed to do my philanthropic work. It also gave me the financial security to focus on my other businesses, start new businesses, and even help other people start businesses.”
She also discusses why she has focused her Eva Longoria Foundation efforts on Latinas:
“You can’t ignore that Hispanics represent the fastest-growing demographic in this country. The future success of America is intricately tied to the future success of the Hispanic community. And it’s the women of these communities—the mothers, sisters, daughters—who make the world go around. I decided to focus on giving them opportunities so that they’re set up for success in life.”
On top of her work in her career, Eva also shares some secrets to her beauty work, including her hair:
“Honestly, I’m just blessed because I’m Mexican. [Laughs.] Mexican Americans have amazing hair! Kenny [Longoria’s longtime hairstylist Ken Paves] always says to me, “Geez, everybody comes in asking what extensions do you have in, and I say, ‘No, she’s Mexican. That’s her hair.’” But one of my secrets is the L’Oréal Paris EverPure shampoo. I color my hair a lot—it fades so fast—so this sulfate-free shampoo keeps the color longer, and it provides this amazing shine. And I like to saturate my hair in treatment oil. I put it in when my hair’s wet, and it dries and conditions in a really great way.”
She also dishes on her makeup secrets:
“I’m a pageant girl from Texas, so I like makeup and hairspray. And the smoky eye? I think I was born with it!”
If you wanted to know how she keeps herself slim and trim at age 40, Eva says:
“I’m definitely a moderation girl, but sometimes I won’t eat sugar for three months. I’ll cut out all sugar and simple carbs that turn into sugar—rice, pasta, bread. I’m not a big carb person anyway, so it’s not that hard. I actually love fish and vegetables. I was raised on vegetables! Anything green—spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts—I crave.”
