Eva Longoria uses this loose powder to lock in her makeup: 'It sets everything in the most beautiful way'

The 'Desperate Housewives' star has a sea of beauty products at her disposal but reaches for the RMS Beauty Tinted UnPowder.

Beloved for her work on hit shows like Desperate Housewives, Devious Maids and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Eva Longoria has earned her large fan base. The actress, director and producer has a wide skill set, and, after viewing her Vogue "Beauty Secrets" video, she could add makeup artist to her list of professions. In the video, the 48-year-old beauty walks viewers through her everyday skin-care and makeup routine. While she uses a wide range of creams, sculpting tools and high-end makeup products like a pro, she couldn't help but rave about RMS Beauty's Tinted UnPowder.

After applying a skin tint, blush and multiple bronzers, Longoria uses a fluffy brush to apply the setting powder. "It's not powdery, but it sets everything in, like, the most beautiful way. It's so finely milled," the actress exclaims. She uses the powder all over her face — across her forehead, under her eyes, on her chin and down her nose. The result is subtle and natural, but the powder somehow seems to lock everything in and take down any unwanted shine.

Finish off your makeup with this lightweight powder that promises to keep your glam in place — and shine at bay.

According to the brand, UnPowder is a clean, loose powder that is designed "to minimize pores, absorb oil and extend makeup." It has a smooth, translucent finish and is talc-free, so you don't have to worry about any white cast.

This blurring powder comes in four shades, including an untinted version. The formula is ideal for those who struggle to keep their skin looking matte and not greasy, thanks to the included ingredient of silica; silica both absorbs oil and helps to blur imperfections. The powder also can reflect light, so your skin looks soft and even.

This loose powder is very fine, cruelty-free and comes in recyclable packaging.

$38 at Nordstrom

UnPowder is available on RMS Beauty's website as well as on Amazon and at Nordstrom — it retails for $38.

One pleased Amazon reviewer gave the powder five stars and said, "This is the perfect lightweight setting powder. It has no odor or weight... If you are looking for a powder that can be worn alone, this will mattify the skin — it's not a full coverage or build-able powder, which is what makes it look and feel natural over makeup."

Another fan exclaimed, "It doesn't look powdery on the surface and it's almost invisible on my fair skin, which is perfect." Bottom line: If you've been looking for a dependable, easy-to-use powder to finish off your beauty routine, look no further than RMS.
