Eva Longoria Covers 'InStyle' July 2011

Eva Longoria Covers 'InStyle' July 2011

Eva Longoria rocks a Michael Kors swimsuit on the cover of InStyle magazine’s July 2011 issue.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Desperate Housewives actress had to share:

On learning about makeup: “I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup when I was young. I would melt crayons and try to put them on my lips, and I would use watercolors for eye shadow.”

On her beauty must-have: “Mascara is very important. If I were on a desert island, I would have to have mascara and lip balm. I’m naturally tan, but I like to use a bronzing powder or something to make my skin look shimmery.”

Her biggest tip for petite figures: “High heels. I love all designer shoes. There’s this pair in my closet by Versace, and they must be 8 inches – crazy tall! I once tried to count how many I had. All I know is that I just donated 60 pairs.”

On her future in television: “I hope Desperate Housewives never ends. I love this job. It’s so fulfilling. But I also love producing and being behind the camera. What’s in front of the camera rarely excites me as much as all of the magic of these people working behind the scenes.”

On her love life: “One thing I did learn is you don’t hold on to the bitterness of the loss; you hang on to the beauty of the love. Remember all the good things. There was a reason you met someone and a reason why you were together.”

    “–melt crayons and try to put them on my lips, and I would use watercolors for eye shadow.” ……lol, that is actually true; I’ve seen her old high school pictures and it did look like she had some kind of clown makeup on.

    I love Eva Longoria.

    On that cover picture she looks a lot like crazy Danielle from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

    “I hope Desperate Housewives never ends” <= this I believe. Cause once it does, her career is over. I know it, she knows it, we all know it.

    Love her.

    The expression on her face is weird.

    I’m glad she’s saying she wants her show to keep going, she’s appreciative of the gig that put her on the pat to stardom, unlike many other ungrateful stars… though that show has really lost its sparkle. Also, wouldn’t you take book or something to a dessert island? So you know, you wouldn’t get bored
