Eva Longoria & Her Makeup Malfunction Should Comfort Us All


Eva Longoria could apparently use a little makeup lesson. The 35-year-old actress went out to dinner the other night sporting a makeup malfunction, the likes of which most of us have likely not seen since we spent our middle school years learning to apply it.

The number one sign that a woman is wearing too much makeup is always the dreaded two-tone mistake. Remember those girls whose necks were a different color than their face because of foundation overuse? That rookie mistake is about what happened to poor Eva.

In the picture on left, Eva appears to have applied a concealer that was a tone lighter than her skin tone. The result is the raccoon-like appearance we might get if we were out in the sun too long with a pair of sunglasses.

Sorry Eva, but your mistake makes me feel better about my decision to rarely (if ever) wear makeup. Nothing says "trying too hard" like going out looking like you don't know how to apply makeup, or worse, do it like a 12-year-old.

Been there, done that. When I was younger, I made enough makeup mistakes to know I was better off without it. Lesson learned. The angry clown look was not for me.

Besides, the whole idea of makeup is applying it so that it enhances your appearance, not so that it's obvious and terrible to look at. An angry circus raccoon isn't a look most of us would want to wear out to dinner. It's such a shame, too, that a woman who looks so beautiful without a stitch of makeup on (and who dresses so well, to boot) could make such a rookie makeup mistake. 

Next time go out bare, Eva! You have perfect skin and a flawless complexion! Why muddy it with bad makeup?

Have you ever had an embarrassing makeup flub?

Actually, the reason her make-up looks like that is because of all the reflectors that they're putting in this new "HD" make up. It's reflecting from the flashes of the cameras. It likely didn't look like that in just the plain light of her mirror as she applied it, and it likely didn't look like that to anyone not viewing her in the photos. Most make-up artists are aware of this, and either she should have had one doing her make up for her, or she should have had a better one.

This woman is fake and a fraud! She was cheating on Tony for months with this guy Eduardo Cruz. Thank God she will fade away once her declining show is yanked off the air. Check out the article here: http://www.nbafrontpage.com/2010/12/breaking-eva-longoria-was-cheater.html

Sweetheart 1985 is right. Also, many of the full-coverage concealers and foundations that have been around for a long time contain titanium dioxide, which also reflects light (camera flash). Today's "under eye brighteners" do the same thing, so this effect could easily happen!

 Yep thats what I was going to say... looks like she is a victim of dark circles and used a reflective white under conceler..which would not read to the naked eye but would reflect from a camera strobe

For the record, I've seen Eva at her restaurant in Hollywood with little if any makeup and she was gorgeous!
