salma hayek gi Salma Hayek concocts Nuance d makeup for CVSSalma Hayek was literally in tears, reports WWD, at the debut of her new makeup line: Nuance Salma Hayek.

“I took three years off my [acting] career to work on this,” said Hayek at the launch on Thursday (May 5) in New York. “This is not something that required 14 hours. Nooo, baby. This has been a full-time job.”

In fact, Hayek has reportedly been working on the project for a decade, mashing together elements learned from her grandmother — a cosmetologist who stuied at Vichy Labs in Paris — and Native American and Mayan remedies.

According to WWD:

“Ingredients used by her family, some not even known to top chemists, are cornerstones of the collection and range from familiar rosewater to the more obscure tepezcohuite.”

Expect to see Nuance in stores in August.
