Longoria: I get Angie’s white powder disaster

Eva Longoria avoids white make-up powder on the red carpet since suffering a beauty mishap.

The Maleficent actress puzzled onlookers earlier this month when the camera flash made her make-up look caked on while at The Normal Heart premiere in New York.

Eva, 39, knows excitedly how it feels to get caught off guard with a beauty dilemma.

"You know what just happened to Angelina Jolie with that white powder? That happened to me with the same white powder," she admitted to the British edition of OK! magazine.

"In person it doesn't look like that. A make-up artist put that on me and I was like, 'Argh!' It doesn't show in person but it reflects with flashes."

Next year, the Desperate Housewives star will celebrate her 40th birthday. She looks much younger than her years and revealed her top beauty secrets.

"For skin, it's the SPF, it's the serums and facials," she listed. "My facials are not even relaxing - they're intense, but it keeps my skin hydrated as I fly so much. I think that's the basis for great make-up and a great face - you have to have good skin. I'm Mexican, so my hair is naturally full."

Eva is good friend with celebrity designer Victoria Beckham and the pair hung out often when the Brit fashion star lived in LA. Even now they make sure to fill each other in on new beauty tricks they learn.

"Always! We're always telling each other newfound secrets," Eva grinned. "Girls have to share - women should always share their secrets. I did laser hair removal on my legs; it's the best thing I ever did. I told her and she loved it. It's not really painful, but it does hurt!"
