Longoria has amazing skin, and one of her secrets is rocking the natural look. "People think the trick to looking younger is makeup, but it's skin-care," Longoria told Allure. "If you don't have good skin, piling on makeup just makes you look older and much worse. When it comes to makeup, I don't overset or over powder it. The more powder you put on the fine lines in your face, the more you see it. Most people say 'oh let me cover it' but it looks much thicker and worse."
