Description

We take a look at a fantastic hair and makeup style from Eva Mendes. Eva Mendes was looking pretty in pink on the red carpet recently, wearing one of the hottest colors of the season—soft rose. This color works best on cool skin tones, but as Eva demonstrates here, ladies with warm skin tones can pull it off just as well.

Eva starts off her look with super glossy hair that puts the spotlight on those gorgeous caramel highlights. Her shoulder length bob has been blow-dried smooth from root with a flip at the tips to achieve a simple yet sexy shape best suited to frame a round face. The deep side hair part adds a dramatic sweep across her eye, and some instant glamour. Eva has added volume on the crown, which lifts up this sleek 'do and pumps it full of body. This formal hairdo is great for any occasion and needs regular trims to maintain a healthy look and feel.

Eva keeps her makeup rosy and fresh by rocking the natural look. She uses a bit of brown eyeliner and mascara on her eyes, followed by a rosy pink on the cheeks that makes her complexion glow. Her lips look fab in a light pink sheer lipstick that gives her face a naturally pretty finish and completes the overall look.

Since Eva’s makeup, hair and clothes are quite simple, she needed something to funk up her look. In this case she’s added a chunky gold necklace that looks super chic. This is definitely an A-List look from Eva Mendes!

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer

Moisturizer

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.

2. Part to the Left

Partleft

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

3. Use a Medium Radial Brush

Brushmedium

A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

4. Blow-dry the Back Under

Backunder

To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.

5. Blow-dry the Sides Under

Sidesunder

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.

6. Apply Smoothing Shine

Smoothingshinefinishing

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.

7. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
