Pregnant Eva Longoria hates brushing her teeth but loves doing her makeup

21st Annual Hollywood Film Awards - Arrivals

In case you didn’t know, Eva Longoria is pregnant. Hey, it was news to me. The 42-year-old actress, philanthropist, L’Oreal spokesperson and fashionista is expecting her first child, a son, with her husband, Televisa president José Antonio “Pepe” Bastón. The couple began dating in 2013 and were wed in May of last year. As soon as the two made it legal, the baby speculation began. Eva debunked the rumors in an interview with Extra at the time where she assured fans she wasn’t pregnant, stating in the most TMI kind of way, “I was just having a cheese baby,” adding,”I had a plate of cheese and apparently I’m lactose intolerant.”

The mom-to-be, who has been showcasing the versatility of many of the items available in her namesake clothing collection during recent red carpet appearances (they are great for any body, but also make for great maternity wear), is the cover story for the January issue of NewBeauty magazine, which arrives on newsstands on December 26. In the interview, she talks about her beauty regimen, her love of makeup (me too) and even addresses whether or not she’d return to the role that made her famous.

Eva’s good skin secret:
“I do it all. I try it all. Facials, scrubs, peels, masks. You name it, I’ll do it. I learned a long time ago that the trick to good makeup is good skin. So many people focus on the makeup instead of the skin care and that’s not a good idea. A good skin-care routine is crucial.”

Her key to a youthful face:
“Sunscreen. I’m a self-proclaimed sunblock bully. I go around applying it to my friends’ faces; I’ve probably applied it to some strangers’ faces, too. I’m forever asking, ‘Do you have sunblock?’ There’s a lot you can do to your skin to keep it healthy, but sunscreen is the big one.” 

Eva LOVES makeup:
“I wasn’t into the natural makeup look. I love makeup! I’m glad the trend right now is heavy makeup. Bring on the makeup!”

Her thoughts on beauty on a budget:
“Everyone thinks you need to spend a lot of money on products or go to the spa for a facial, but the technology for over-the-counter beauty products has gotten so much better in recent years. Everyone can have access to that.”

Why she’s a fan of social media:
“It’s definitely a place of inspiration for me. I love makeup bloggers and influencers, and I love seeing the new tricks they come up with on Instagram and Pinterest,” the mother-to-be says. “I turn to social media often for ideas for my looks – I’ll see a red lip I really like, or a purple smoky eye I want to try. Its a great place for ideas.”

One beauty habit she’s not fond of:
“I hate brushing my teeth! I do it twice a day, but it really pisses me off sometimes. I wish I could do something with my bottom crooked teeth. I’ve had braces before, but they just keep moving back.”

What about a Desperate Housewives reboot?
“I wish! I love that show. I miss it every single day. I miss being Gaby. I miss being on that set. I miss everything about it. But our creator [Marc Cherry] has said many times he wouldn’t bring it back. Plus, we’re all so busy. Felicity [Huffman] is always off doing some Emmy award–winning show. I’m busy with my projects. I don’t know if it will ever happen, but I’m all for the idea!”

[Quotes from NewBeauty and People]

Aside from her even considering a DH reunion, I like what Eva’s got to say. Except for that teeth brushing thing. That’s kind of odd, don’t you think? It’s not something I can’t wait to do, but it doesn’t anger me. But, hey, to each her own. 2018 promises to be a big year for Eva. In addition to her upcoming bundle of joy, she co-stars with Anna Faris in the remake of Overboard (which I refuse to get behind. Stop it, Hollywood). Eva is also getting her own star on Hollywood’s legendary Walk of Fame this spring, an event Eva describes as “a dream beyond a dream beyond a dream.” I’m happy for her, and wish she and José the best when the stork comes to call.

    Whaaat? She pregnant? I had no idea.
    Congrats! She deserves to be happy after the mess with her first husband.
    I like make-up but I’m no good at applying it and I feel that it doesn’t make my face any prettier so I wear it only on special occasions.
    I’m pretty, but I would need a nose job and braces to be actually beautiful.
    So I feel like why bother with make-up? It won’t “fix” the problem :) )

    • H says:

      Was the first husband the soap actor, Tyler Christopher or the basketball player?

      • elimaeby says:

        Her first was the soap actor that is often forgotten (for obvious reasons). I’m guessing monette means Tony Parker because that ish was MESSY. She deserves all the happiness in the world after that.

      • monette says:

        Yes, Tony Parker. Thank you, Elimaeby!
        I had no idea there was another husband before him. I thought her marriage to Tony Parker was her first.

    I’m with her on the teeth brushing. It makes me gag. Definitely the worst part(s) of my day.

    • Odetta says:

      Is it because she’s pregnant I wonder…when I was pregnant I never had morning sickness but literally every time I brushed my teeth I would gag.

    • AV says:

      I absolutely loathe brushing my teeth. I do it, of course, and am very grateful to live in a time/place where I can easily access supplies to take care of my oral health, but it’s such a boring, messy, annoying, gagging chore!

    • KiddVicious says:

      I hate brushing my teeth too. I thought I was odd so I’m glad to see others who also hate it.

    • meh says:

      I can’t brush my teeth with a regular toothbrush. I have to buy the battery powered ones. I can’t STAND the sound and feeling of a regular toothbrush, I’m getting shivers just thinking about it. ICK

  3. smcollins says:

    From the headline I thought her hate of brushing her teeth was tied in with her pregnancy because I couldn’t brush my teeth without gagging, or even throwing up a little, during both of my pregnancies. I dreaded brushing my teeth during that time!

  4. Annika says:

    Congrats on her pregnancy. She’ll be a wonderful mom!
    She’s beautiful but I don’t like her makeup in her red carpet photos, to me it looks really heavy & show girl-esque.
    I guess I just like a more classic look.

  5. The Original Mia says:

    Guessed she was pregnant months ago and was just waiting for confirmation. Congrats to Eva and her hubby!

  6. Tiffany says:

    I am thrilled for her. She is one of my favorite celebs. Here is hoping for safe and healthy pregnancy.

  7. megs283 says:

    Love her, and I love the success she’s made for herself following Desperate Housewives. She seems like she is a very hard worker and I love her comedic timing.

    I recently started rewatching DH and it’s still amazing. I can’t believe how young they all were!

    I also hate brushing my teeth. Ugh. It’s definitely a chore!

  8. Betsy says:

    I, too, hate brushing my teeth. Oral care is so, so important and I just hate doing it. It’s just there, day in, day out.

  9. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    She’s had braces, but her teeth keep moving back?

    It’s called a retainer, honey.

    • Applecore says:

      Yup. I’ve had one glued to my bottom teeth for over half my life (it’s just a thin strip of metal). Dentist said that if I were to have it removed, it’s only a matter of time until they get crooked.

  10. DiegoInSF says:

    I love her. She’s such an underrated comedic actress. She’s philanthropic and politically active. So happy for her and I love makeup too so I get her!

  11. Nello says:

    So I scoped out her clothing line and she doesn’t offer petite sizes? Eva is 5′ 2″. She should know us shorties’ pain when it comes to finding jeans that aren’t too long! C’mon Eva, offer sizes for all WOmen. But I do like her and am very thrilled she is expecting. She seems like she will be a great mom!
