Eva Longoria was never into the ''natural make-up look''.

The 42-year-old actress has admitted she has never been a follower of the ''less is more'' mantra, and she is glad the current beauty trend is ''heavy make-up'' because she loves nothing more than piling on the cosmetic products.

Speaking in the January issue of NewBeauty magazine, the former 'Desperate Housewives' star said: ''I wasn't into the natural make-up look. I love make-up! I'm glad the trend right now is heavy make-up. Bring on the make-up.''

And Eva believes people do not need to fork out a large amount of money on make-up.

She added: ''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.''

Aside from make-up, Eva is also a ''self-proclaimed sunblock bully'' and will douse herself and her pals in sun protection.

She said: ''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 - who has her own eponymous clothing line - relies on social media for style and beauty inspiration.

She said: ''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. 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. It's a great place for ideas.''

Although Eva - who is expecting her first child with her husband Jose Baston - is hot on her beauty and skincare routine, she has admitted she ''hates'' brushing her teeth.

She explained: ''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.''
