Eva Mendes is Violet Grey‘s latest cover girl! The beauty site, which previously featured Mad Men‘s Jessica Pare in a gorgeous feature story, caught up with Mendes to get all the details on the importance of makeup and hair care in her life, her favorite fragrances, and much more. We certainly learned a few new things about the star, who, despite her busy schedule, never fails to bring on the glamour. “Being an actor, home is sometimes a Holiday inn in Schenectady, or the Marriott in Shreveport,” she said. “I bring my home in a suitcase packed with history.”

We’re sure she has the act of getting her beauty essentials to fit into a TSA-approved makeup bag down to a science by this point! Mendes’ friends, including Liv Tyler, Larry David, and InStyle‘s October cover girl Julianne Moore, also contributed to the piece, and Moore confirmed that the star is just as friendly as she is stunning. “The first time I met Eva, she came toward me with a beautiful smile and her hand outstretched to shake mine,” Moore said. “I was immediately struck by the sheer warmth of her personality. It is eclipsed only by her extraordinary beauty!” Head over to violetgrey.com now to read the rest of Eva’s interview, and to see even more gorgeous shots from her feature story.
