Eva Mendes shares speedy beauty tips

Eva Mendes wears make-up every single day.

The 41-year-old actress is coming to terms with being a mother for the first time; she and her boyfriend Ryan Gosling welcomed daughter Esmeralda in September last year.

While many new mums might struggle to keep up their beauty regimes, Eva continues to look picture perfect every time she goes out.

"I do, and I pride myself on a fast routine," she revealed to when asked if she applies make-up daily.

"I start with tinted moisturiser, then I dab on a bright pink cheek stain, which makes my skin come alive. And I always need concealer, because no matter what, I have dark circles. I made peace with that a long time ago."

For people keen to get her look, the star also opened up about her tips and tricks. She never lines the corners of the eyes, as she feels it makes them look smaller, and she uses blusher horizontally to even out her "longer face".

These days Eva is no doubt a style icon for many, which led to her being cast as beauty brand CIRCA's newest ambassador.

While she's a Hollywood star in her own right now, Eva can still remember her first make-up idol.

"Revlon lipstick, because Cindy Crawford was one of their spokesmodels and I was obsessed with her," she said of her first cosmetics purchase.

"I bought a frosty shade and a brown one. I may have even layered the two!"
