Beauty Inspiration

“My mom. I love how simple my mom is in her routine,” Longoria told Us. “She always taught me how to take care of my skin, how to put on cream, always put it up, up, up, don’t put it down. So I always associate skincare and beauty with my family.”

“So many times especially brides or women on their wedding day, they go on with this crazy face of makeup and they don’t wear makeup in their life,” the Desperate Housewives alum said. “And their wedding photos are like who is that? Just be true to who you are in your beauty routine.”

Longoria encourages people to show off their beauty style on social media. The actress has launched the Kiss This 4 MBC campaign, which aims to raise research funds and support for women living with metastatic breast cancer.
