Eva Longoria has stolen the spotlight on red carpets from here to Cannes, and she really outdid herself in her photo call at the 2024 Oscars. Not only did she slay in a Tamara Ralph gown with a swooping neckline, her makeup was gorgeous. The perfect stylistic blend of TikTok's "Unapproachable Makeup" (dramatic eyes, fierce contour) and "Espresso Makeup" (shades of brown with a slash of black) trends, Longoria's dramatic makeup application is all about making her look sexy—and the style is easy to borrow from when we're making ourselves up at home. We cribbed the products that MUA Elan Bongiorno used to give Longoria her glow-up.

Eva Longoria Oscars makeup: L'Oreal Glotion highlighter

1. Highlighter


“For Eva’s makeup we decided to do her signature bronzed glowy skin while keeping the focus on her gorgeous eyes," says Bongiorno. L'Oreal True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer ($17) in Light Glow was applied as a highlighter; what makes this product indispensible is that it can be used in various ways including as a luminous primer, lightweight full-face foundation, highlighter, contour and full body luminizer.

2. Bronzer


Long-wearing bronzer means those cheekbones you contoured at the beginning of the evening are going to still be defining your cheekbones well into the morning. L'Oreal Infallible 24H Fresh Wear Soft Matte Bronzer ($16) is a win for its matte texture (sparkly blends can look oily in flash photography) and buildable formulation.

3. Liquid Eyeliner


"I wanted her eyes to pop so I gave her glamorous lashes with Panorama Mascara ($16), and a classic winged eye look using precision liquid black eyeliner," says Bongiorno. L'Oreal Infallible Grip Precision Felt Liquid Eyeliner ($13) is waterproof, smudge-resistant and transfer-proof, so it's going to withstand the tears and tribulations of a long Oscars ceremony and afterparty.

4. Long-Wearing Blush

Now for a shot of color: L'Oreal Infallible 24H Fresh Wear Soft Matte Blush ($16) in Fearless Coral is a bright orangey shade, in a formulation that lasts 24 hours or until you wash your makeup off, whichever comes first.

5. Nude Lipstick


With such dramatic eyes, Longoria's look is finished with a lip color that is in line with the overall tawny palette, but isn't too dark or harsh (she's not going for goth here). This warm nude Colour Riche Original Satin Lipstick ($12) in Toasted Almond is a smidge coral, a little bit brown and a lot chic. On Longoria, think of it as the chef's kiss to her whole Oscars look.
