Actress, businesswoman and mother Eva Mendes has been announced as the spokesmodelÂ of Estee Lauder’s upcoming New Dimension transformative skincare collection.
MiNDFOOD and MiNDFOOD STYLE beauty director Liz Hancock was lucky to flyÂ to Los Angeles last monthÂ to exclusively interview Mendes about her career, motherhood and work with Estee Lauder. You can read the full interview in the September issue of MiNDFOOD, when the groundbreaking New Dimension range launches later this year.
The stunning Cuban-American actress began her Hollywood career in 1998, but MendesÂ first majorÂ role came opposite Denzel Washington in 2001 filmÂ Training Day. Since then she has selected a diverse range ofÂ roles that vary between comedyÂ and drama, including films Once Upon A Time In Mexico,Â We Own The Night and Beyond The Pines.
Last year Mendes and partner Ryan Gosling had theirÂ first child, a daughter called Esmeralda. MendesÂ juggles her roles as an actor and mother with her business ventures including a home decor line – Vida, a fashion collection called Eva Mendes for NY&CO, and a colour cosmetics line called CIRCA.
Mendes told MiNDFOOD that she has loved the brand Estee Lauder since she was 12, when sheÂ fell in love with the perfume Knowing while shopping in an LA mall in the Valley. “I’ve been wearing it ever since then,” said Mendes.
Mendes is the face of Estee Lauder’sÂ new range which is dedicated to re-shapingÂ the face, and includes New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum and New Dimension Expert Tape. Facial transformation is a new product category for the beauty industry, and the range promisesÂ both instant and long-term results.
“As an actress, businesswoman and now a mother, Eva understands the power of transformation that is at the heart of our new approach to beauty,” comments Jane Hertzmark Hudis, Global brand president for Estee Lauder.
