In the July issue of UK magazine Company, Jessica Alba dishes about wearing a full face of makeup at the tender age of 10. Alba's mother was in cosmetology school and used her young daughter as a test pilot. “She needed a model to practice on!” explains Alba. “[It was] for the swim team picture—full on winged eyeliner, the works.”

When the gorgeous actress isn't working, she keeps her look a little more simple.“Concealer, Revlon’s cream blush and a light tinted base or moisturizer,” Alba (a brand ambassador for Revlon) says when asked to describe her daily makeup routine.

When it's time to pump it up for a night out, Jessica relies on the good-old dark red lipstick trick: “That’s my thing—a dark lip!”

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
