Posted on

With her natural beauty and spot-on sense of style, one wouldn’t think that Jessica Alba would have much need for makeup, but it turns out the 29-year-old actress is a bit of a beauty junkie. In the July issue of British magazine Company, the star reveals that she was sporting a full face of makeup at the tender age of 10, thanks to her mother. “She was going to cosmetology school and she needed a model to practice on!” explains Alba. “[It was] for the swim team picture — full on winged eyeliner, the works.” So it seems fitting that the stunning actress would go on to become a brand ambassador for Revlon, whose products, of course, anchor the star’s off-duty makeup routine: “Concealer, Revlon’s cream blush and a light tinted base or moisturizer,” she dishes. And when it comes time to dress up her look for the red-carpet, the new mom says it’s all about dark lipstick, mascara and eyeliner. “That’s my thing–a dark lip!” As for the differences between L.A. girls and London ladies? “London’s definitely a bit more fashion-forward than LA!” she reveals. “I like London’s style–it’s edgy, urban…The girls are very cool here.” For more on Jessica, pick up the July issue of Company or visit –Gillian Koenig
