I haven’t made my disappointment in Eva Longoria’s makeup artist a secret. With makeup mishaps mentioned here and here. But in the April issue of Allure Eva Longoria looks absolutely stunning.

Stephane Marais really knocked it out of the park with her makeup. He did exactly what I would do; focus on her intense brown eyes. Marais gave her a sexy Sophia Loren look. Shimmery bronze eye shadows for a smoky, sultry look, and filled in brows for a strong arch helped channel the screen siren. Lots of black L’Oreal mascara and individual lashes complete the eyes. Marais contoured her cheekbones with bronzer and apricot blush {try NARS blush in Luster} and a swipe of beige lipstick {try NARS Belle de Jour} so as not to compete with the eyes. Serge Normant created bedroom hair with voluminizer for bounce, and large pin curls for soft, romantic waves. Between the Pacific Palisades home, her hair and makeup, Eva looks every bit the Italian movie star.

This is the second time Marais has done Eva’s makeup for the cover of Allure. I’ve never seen her look better, take that Tony Parker.  For a behind the scenes peek at Eva Longoria’s Allure cover shoot, check out this video.

I think Eva should hire Stephane Marais full-time don’t you?

    I agree- she looks great in these photos… I love reading brebeauty, I wish I lived anywhere remotely close to PA, I’d hire you to do my makeup for my cousin’s wedding. Would you ever consider flying to do a wedding? Travel paid of course…

    You know what? This is such an interesting post. I really like the links to your other opinions about Eva’s look. I think that this is the best that she’s ever looked and that she should definitely hire Stephane Marais to be her full-time makeup artist. I’ve never considered Eva a great beauty and now that I’ve seen this, I’m wondering if that didn’t have a lot to do with her makeup.

    Hi. I’m a stylist in LA and I’m totally obsessed with your blog. I’d love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I just moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. In attempt to get my heel in the door, I’ve launched a site all about celebrity fashion and the trends that create it. Check out what Vanessa Hudgens was wearing when I ran into her last week and Olivia P’s breaking news. I’d love the support. I’m following you, I hope you’ll do the same. Thanks so much.
