Eva Mendes is envied by women everywhere for her glowing skin, coveted curves and silky hair. But behind every beautiful woman is an essential set of beauty tools, and the Thierry Mugler muse says she counts on some tried-and-true favorites to give her an all-over glow. First up? Blush. “I like … cream-based products and NARS does really fun blush and bronzer,” Mendes tells “I like to mix those.” And while she may be drawing attention to the apples of her cheeks, she’s trying to draw attention away from other areas. “Dark circles are hereditary in my family, which can be useful when doing a role when I’m supposed to be tired and depressed,” she jokes. “But in my everyday life, I try to minimize that” by using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer, she says. To keep her skin clear and healthy, Mendes swipes on Dr. Hauschka facial toner, because “it’s so clean and so simple,” she shares. “It’s not drying in any way.” For nails, she counts on Essie polish in ‘Mucho Dinero.’ “It’s so elegant,” she says, laughing at the name. “What about this says mucho dinero?” Luckily, she doesn’t have to spend mucho dinero on her shampoo and conditioner, both from the Pantene Pro-V Medium-Thick Solutions line (she’s a spoksemodel for the company). “It’s classic and you can get it anywhere in the world,” she says of the brand. “I tried to cheat and go more expensive, but I came running back with my tail between my legs.” Tell us: What are your beauty must-haves? –Kim Peiffer, with Justine Harman
