Penélope Cruz's mascara must

Penélope Cruz's skin looks so fresh because she keeps it hydrated.

The 41-year-old actress often makes her peepers the centre of attention while in the spotlight, sometimes settling for a nude lip to complement. Sharing her beauty tips, Penélope spoke of how important she thinks adding length to lashes is.

"Mascara is a must. It's like a little black dress for your eyes. And eyes are able to express feelings when words fail," she explained to British newspaper Metro. "When I'm not working, I just wear blush, mascara and a light-colour lipstick. But for an event I'll choose stronger eyes and lips. And I take care of my skin with hydration day and night."

Penélope has frequently spoken about how she was impacted by female relatives in her family from a young age, such as secretly using her grandmother's make-up when she was just three. Her mother is a professional hairdresser and the star picked up plenty of tips while watching her. Despite not being taught the specifics, Penélope would sit and watch to learn all she needed to know.

The brunette beauty looks just as youthful now as she did at the beginning of her career, so it's no wonder she is happy to embrace getting older.

"People have been asking me about getting old since I was 20. At first I ignored those questions as I didn't talk about it but now I see things differently," she said. "I'm grateful for what I have and will feel like this when I'm 60 and hopefully 100, because I'll just have more things to celebrate."
