Beauty bloggers get dozens of email a day from companies who sponsor celebrity makeup for events big and smalls. They send detailed "Get The Look" instructions and product breakdowns. I rarely get ones regarding Eva Longoria, and I suspect that no one is going to take responsibility for Eva's makeup the other night at the Padres Contra El Cancer 13th annual 'El Sueno De Esperanza' Gala in Los Angeles (the awkwardly proportioned and unflattering dress is by Pamella Roland). It's mostly the furry lashes, I guess, but the overabundance of light-reflecting powder is not helping any.
It's nothing new, really. As beautiful as Eva Longoria is, I often find her makeup overdone and more than a little dated. Just a few days earlier at her Extra appearance Eva sported enough eye shadow for two Kardashians. I think the problem is the stark contrast between lid and brow bone, combined with the obviously unnatural eyebrows. Good intention, too heavy a hand.
