Get the Look of Eva Longoria ALMA Awards Makeup:

· To prep skin, use L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil to help foundation glide easily and also create a glowy, dewy complexion.

· Next, highlight your eyes like Eva’s using the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer by illuminating the area underneath your eyes. This should always be done before applying foundation.

· Apply L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 18 (Available in 12 shades) to leave a natural, powdery finish.

· To create a soft, subtle smoky eye, use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Black Pump and blend the grey and black eye shadows gently to create a dark grey hue -  this will make your eyes pop. After blending the shadows together, dust a bit of the beige eye shadow over the top to add a sheer hint of luminosity.

· Then draw a black line on top of the lashes with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blackbuster Liquid Eyeliner for a full lash effect, and finish with two coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara.

· For a subtle hue on the lips, use L’Oréal Paris Colour Caresse by Colour Riche in Sheer Linen.

· To begin, apply L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum evenly throughout the hair to block out frizz and lock in sleek shine.

· Use a curling iron and curl the crown area. Afterwards, part your hair to the side, leaving some bangs to dangle, which will give the look a young yet sophisticated touch.

· Concentrate in leaving volume in the crown area when you brush, gather your hair into a ponytail at the nape of your neck.

· Next, divide your hair into two equal sections.

· Use your finger to separate a small section of your hair from the outer edge near the ponytail and cross it over to the opposite side (overlapping just like you would with a normal braid). Re-grip your hair to tighten plait, still holding two sections. Repeat with a small section from the other side.

· Continue overlapping pieces from both sides of your ponytail, all the way down to your ends.

· Once you’ve overlapped your hair down to the end, secure the braid with clear hair elastic.

· Finish your braid by gently tugging on your braid with your fingers to loosen it up and replicate the effortless yet sexy look Eva has.

· Spray a bit of L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray five feet apart to lock the braid in place, not leaving it too stiff.
