We Want To Steal Eva Mendes’ Getting Ready Routine

*Sigh.* Eva Mendes has the morning routine of our dreams.

After waking up next to Ryan Gosling (and that’s enough in itself), the Place Beyond The Pines actress doesn’t then labour away in the mirror for hours beautifying herself, oh no – it takes here a mere ten minutes to get ready. 

‘I know what fits and I know what I like, even down to my makeup’ the 41-year-old actress explained to People.

And despite always looking flawless, even when popping to the shops, the new mum insists she has her off-days too.

‘I don’t always look put-together, and that’s okay. I don’t put pressure on myself’, Eva, who gave birth to daughter Esmeralda in September, admitted.

So what’s the key to that fabulous hourglass figure? The actress admits she looks to the 1950s when it comes to fashion, adding: ‘A very cinched waist was the fashion then.’

And as for her go-to wardrobe staple that always leaves her feeling stylish? ‘When in doubt I put my hair in a scarf and I’m out the door.’

Loving these tips, Ms Mendes! Now, how do we shave that extra 30 minutes off our morning routine…?!
