Makeup For Eva Longoria (and breakdown of products used!)

I was very fortunate to be hired by Eva Longoria this morning to do her makeup for an event in Chicago. A huge thanks goes to a makeup artist friend of mine who gave Eva my name and number...my friend has also done Eva's makeup, twice. She's a super talented artist in the DC area...here's her blog - http://www.blackbird-artistry.com/apps/blog She also has an Eva blog post and product breakdown on her blog as well :)

Anyway...so I went to Chicago yesterday and worked on her this morning. She's a very pleasant person. She knew exactly what she wanted in her makeup, which I love.
