Isn’t she just gorgeous?! [Source.] I’ve watched all the movies she has starred in and I especially love her portrayal of the character Sarah Melas in Hitch. Not only is she beautiful, she’s smart and Funny too. When it comes to makeup, Eva’s incredible bone structure allows her to pull off anything, but she usually keeps it light, with the occasional pop of colour. For this look, I pulled inspiration from her recent shoot with W Magazine… Soft (matte) looking skin, a defined eye liner, up to the crease, and a bold rouge lip. My Recreation.
