    We can't decide whether Eva Longoria is trying to land a Manzo brother or land a new gig as a housewife, but we do know we've never seen this much mascara and frosty makeup on anyone that's not one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. 

    Perhaps Eva is so excited for the upcoming season that she decided to mimic the Jersey ladies' signature mascara-coated fake lashes and frosty pink lip-gloss. We hate to break it to you—and we hope none of those Jersey broads try to catfight with us over this—but frosty pink lip-gloss isn't flattering on anyone.

    We were also disappointed that Eva broke from her usual gorgeous winged eyes and warm bronzy shadows and instead used a metallic bluish grey shadow, which did nothing for her deep brown eyes and coloring.

    Ladies, we know how pretty metallic shadow is, but unless your eyes are showing zero signs of aging, the metallic and frosty shadows simply don't work. They actually bring more attention to imperfections.

    Eva also seems to have borrowed the housewives' brand of foundation, applied so thick that even the scratching of sharp acrylic nails wouldn't leave a mark. It just doesn't complement Eva's smooth complexion and instead gives her an unnatural orangey bronze finish.

    Beauty Bailout: If you're tempted to use a frosty pink lip-gloss, fight the temptation and go for a soft nude lip like Fresh Sugar Honey Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 (which is technically a hydrating balm, but deposits just the right amount of color for a flattering creamy finish). 

    If you're going for a dramatic eye, make sure you're choosing the right color palette and finish. While there are no strict rules for color, keep in mind that if your eyes are brown like Eva's, bronzes, browns and purples are really going to make your eyes pop.

    Hint: If you're worried that your eyes are showing signs of aging (and if you're like us, you probably obsess over it) always go the safe route with a matte palette like the Kat Von D Ladybird True Romance Eyeshadow Palette which includes 8 matte shadows and a pencil liner.

    If you find your skin looks ruddy or your makeup seems to be seeping into your pores (making them more visible), make sure you're using a primer before you apply your makeup. Then, make sure you choose a foundation that blends seamlessly without looking thick or like it's sitting on top of your skin, like Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup.

    Hint: No matter what kind of foundation you're wearing, if it's not blending properly, try slightly dampening your makeup sponge and blotting or stippling over your entire face. This helps to blend without removing the makeup.

    We just don't think Eva is ready to turn over tables with the rest of the Jersey gang, so we're hoping she'll abandon this look and return to her usual warm color palette and frost-free lips.
