Jessica Alba On Wearing Makeup Since She Was 10 Years Old

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 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!”
