Mirta de Perales, an icon in the beauty industry, particularly for us Latinas, passed away last week on May 3, 2011. One of the first Hispanic women to find huge success in the beauty industry in the U.S., de Perales was 88 years old when she died from Alzheimer's disease.

While dishing out recipes from her new cookbook, Eva’s Kitchen, this week, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria shared another type of recipe: her homemade face mask!
Eva’s skin is always incredibly radiant, and now we know why—she exfoliates weekly with her homemade face mask, made of coffee, lemon juice, and olive oil.
