To design the Eva Longoria Home collection for JCPenney, the actress, 40, sought muses everywhere. “I once noted tiles in Spain as inspiration for the bedding,” she tells Us. “I keep a journal on hand to jot down ideas.” The Devious Maids producer (dating media mogul Jose Antonio Baston) tells Us Weekly what fills her Gerard Darel tote.
“I travel with a plus pillow. One of my Instagram followers pointed out it’s my constant companion!”
“I use L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Smoothing Cleansing Wipes. They’re great for removing makeup after a long shoot.”
“Being sick is not an option for me because I’m active all the time. I make sure to have vitamin C with me.”
“I have key chains that remind me of all the places I’ve visited, like France and Mexico.”
On Pins and Needles
“I always have a needle and thread for any dress emergencies. Friends have asked me to hem their jeans — and one even asked me to sew her wedding dress!”
Pay It Forward
“My Yves Saint Laurent wallet has currencies from all over the world, in case I’m somewhere and like, ‘I need Moroccan dirhams.’ I have some!”
More of what’s in Longoria’s bag: dried mangoes, gray wool Victoria Beckham sweater, Eva by Eva Longoria Eau de Parfum, L’Oréal Paris Quick Dry Sunscreen Spray, iPhone, headphones, tinted lip gloss, hair ties, and an iPod.
