Eva Mendes is no newbie in the makeup department, seeing as she is someone who gets glammed by professional make up artistes often.

The actress has picked up a few timeless tips that she has put to use on herself at home — hacks we are itching to steal.

She revealed her unique method for adding that rosy glow to her skin. "Once I came to terms with the fact that I have a long face, I realized you have to do your makeup for your face shape," she explained. "A makeup artist told me it's better for me to apply blush across the nose because it breaks up the face."

It's this kind of know-how that makes Eva qualified to start her own beauty business.

As for Circa Beauty, Eva is much more than just a pretty face on their poster ads. She was instrumental in designing the drugstore cosmetics collection alongside beauty industry manufacturer Maesa.

The proof? It’s in the wide range of colors available to match several skin tones. The 26-piece spread has an array of bright lipstick shades, glittering mascaras, liquid liners, illuminating pens, and foundation shades.

So the next time you're on the drugstore aisle, make up shopping, be sure to pick up Eva's favourite cream blush hue, Portofino.
