Eva Longoria's smoky eye perfection

Eva Longoria is pleased there are so many products for creating a smoky eye.

The Desperate Housewives star is famed for favouring a dark eyeshadow on the red carpet and has been rocking the look at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

It takes a lot of time to get right, but Eva says the effort it totally worth it.

"I love a smoky eye for the red carpet. A lot of people don't realise it involves many products - people think, 'Oh, I'll just do a liner,'" she explained to the British edition of OK! magazine. "I say to have a good smoky eye you have to use a pencil liner that you smudge out with eyeshadow, that you then define with liquid liner; so it's a lot of products. We have the L'Oréal Super Liner, we have the Blackbuster pencil, which is like a big marker, and we have some really dark shadows with shimmer. There's a lot of great product for the smoky eye!"

Eva has great dress sense and is often praised for her red carpet choices. When she looks back on past outfits, she never has any regrets.

"I don't think so - looking back, I know why I picked it at the time," she replied when asked if she wishes she hadn't worn previous ensembles.

"One time I wore a dress backwards and I didn't know. We landed and the luggage didn't, so we had to run straight to the red carpet. We ran in, somebody just gave me a dress, I threw it on and as we were walking the red carpet I saw the stylist out of a car going, 'You have it on backwards!'"

However, it all turned out well because Eva ended up getting voted Best Dressed for the event.
