Eva Mendes In VIOLET GREY

In her very first photo-shoot and interview since giving birth to her daughter Esmeralda Amada with longtime love Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes sat down with her friend and VIOLET GREY founder, Cassandra Huysentruyt Grey, for VIOLET GREY’s digital publication The Violet Files. The usually private actress opens up, discussing everything from the parenting values she shares with Ryan, to her excitement about her expanding her New York & Company collection to the comfort she gets from the chatter in online mom forums. TM & Marta Walsh have the sneak peek!

Stunning on location in the powder room at Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA, the story has just gone live at VIOLETGREY.com.

EVA’S FIRST TAKE ON MOTHERHOOD, AS TOLD TO VIOLET GREY:

On what her nights look like now:

“I thought my wild nights were over but these are some of the wildest nights I’ve ever had.”

On motherhood and life with Esmeralda:

“Everything is a struggle for her. For instance, I haven’t thrown up since the ’90s and she’s thrown up twice since we started this interview. Motherhood is cake compared to what it’s like to be a baby.”

LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick in Heiress

Loving the LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick in Heiress. The shade is a light coral pink. In ‘real-life’ it looks a bit more pink than the image below which looks more coral to me. Coral pink shades are my favorite. Texture: not too glossy and not too matte and drying. You could say light matte. Feels really soft on lips and easy to apply smoothly. It is highly pigmented which is fantastic especially if you have dark natural lips. Love the smell. It’s a bit like Creme Brûlée. The smell is light and fluffier than the MAC lipsticks which I prefer. Quite long lasting.  I’m not a lipstick girl but LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick surprised me:) Available at Amazon.com and loraccosmetics.com.

LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick in Heiress, $16.

Lolita Lempicka Elle L’aime EDT

The newest launch from the iconic line, Elle L’aime EDT, is a floral scent that exudes warm sensuality and expresses the state of being in love. A fragrance that is all at once playful and sensual, opening with a dazzling fusion of bergamot and neroli, before a signature heart of jasmine, creamy ylang-ylang and coconut flower exude timeless femininity.

Lolita Lempicka Elle L’aime perfume

Price: $81 (2.7 fl. oz), Available at Amazon.com

“It has the same sort of sweet smell of the original Lolita Lempicka perfume bit lighter with a hint of floral. It smells however more oriental than floral which is a plus, I do not get along with floral perfumes they smell ‘flat’ and ‘pokey’ to me. So Lolita Lempicka Elle L’aime EDT got the floral to sweet balance right.”-Marta Walsh

Megan Fox Makeup

Celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder worked with Megan Fox for the Sydney premiere of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” on Sunday, September 7th.

BEAUTY INSPIRATION:

“Megan’s dress was bright orange so I opted for a very natural, glowy makeup look.  I did not want the makeup to compete with the dress.”

GET THE LOOK:

“I began by applying La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation in Honey Beige all over her skin with a Beauty Blender.  This allowed for sheer, more natural coverage.  Megan has flawless skin so she doesn’t need too much foundation, just a bit to even out her skin tone.  I also used NARS Concealer in Custard where necessary.

Jessica Alba Makeup

Celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder and celebrity hairstylist Giannandrea worked with Jessica Alba for the 2014 Baby2Baby Gala presented by Tiffany & Co. on Saturday, November 8th in Culver City, CA.

BEAUTY INSPIRATION: “Jessica’s makeup was dewy and natural with an emphasis on her eyes and eyelashes.”

GET THE LOOK:

“I misted Jessica’s face with the Baszicare Roseus Floral Hydrating Toner all over and followed with the Vivax Deluge Lift Moisturizer on top, which immediately gave the skin more radiance.  Around the eyes I gently tapped on the Astra Eye Contour Cream and massaged all the products into her skin. These three products provided a great base for the dewy finish that I wanted to create on Jessica.

RevitaLash Hi-Def Tinted Brow Gel

One beauty trend I’ve been seeing lately are full brows, think model Cara Delevingne and even Kim Kardashian brows who have gorgeous thick eyebrows. Achieving this trend can be difficult because of over-plucked or under maintained eyebrows of our past but luckily, RevitaLash Hi-Def Tinted Brow Gel can help enhancing your own natural brows and make them appear thicker and better.

How to get full brows

RevitaLash Hi-Def Tinted Brow sculpts and defines eyebrows to create a fuller look, while filling in areas that may be sparse or damaged.  In addition, the Hi-Def Tinted Brow Gel conditions brows to protect from breakage, and create soft and naturally beautiful brows. A must-have!

Inspiration: Keira wore a beautiful cream colored CHANEL Haute-Couture gown, embellished with pale pink crystals. Keira is such an inspiration and I love to play up her features, so this evening I decided on a smoldering metallic eye with rose gold highlights, paired with a beautiful deep rose lip.
