Megan Fox Make-Up Tricks

Megan Fox is well known for her sultry make up looks, and despite the 26 year old actress now expecting her first child with husband Brian Austin Green, you can be sure that she won't be ditching her trademark look anytime soon. This post shares her eye and lip make up tricks and works particularly well on girls with dark hair and blue eyes like Megan.

Entrancing Eyes
1) Firstly, define your eyebrows well! Megan has smoothly arched eyebrows just like her own icon, Sophia Loren. If you are not confident about shaping your own eyebrows, have them professionally waxed, threaded or plucked for the first time, then follow the line your beautician creates after that. It is important to fill in your eyebrows to add extra definition. You can use eyeliner or eyebrow pencil for this but I prefer to use eyeshadow as it creates a more subtle effect. Finish with a sweep of clear mascara to keep your perfectly groomed brows in place.
2) To really make blue eyes 'pop' use shades of gold eyshadow to cover the eyelid, using lighter shades on the inner corner of the eye. Then add black eyeshadow in the outer crease and along the upper lash line to define your eyes. When blending remember you are looking for a slick look not a smokey eye!
3) Next create Megan's sexy cat-eye shape with eyeliner. Preferably use gel or liquid liner as they are the most accurate and smudge-free versions (this may take a few practices if you are not used to using eyeliner). Start on the inner corner of the eye and try to sweep out in one continuous motion so as to avoid jagged lines. To create the cat-eye shape you want to flick out the eyeliner at the ends, this will extend the length of your eye visually. If you want a really dramatic look you can also line your lower lash, but beware of going too heavy or coming right into your inner corner, as this can make your eyes look smaller.
4) Before applying mascara, use a lash curler to bend your upper eyelashes upwards to create a fuller, more voluminous look. Then apply mascara on your upper and lower lashes, being careful not to smudge.

Luscious Lips
1) With such dramatic eye make-up it is important not to overdo your lips. Firstly use a lip liner in a tone slightly darker than your natural lip colour. Use this to shape your lips and erase the appearance of unevenness.
2)Then use a lipstick in matching (or ever-so-slightly lighter) colour. My favourite are the long lasting paint-on versions such as Maybelline's 'Super Stay 24 Hour Colour'. Finally sweep with a layer of gloss and you're ready to go!

TIP: To maintain the effect of your beautiful make-up, spray a thin layer of hairspray all over your face to set the look. It'll last all day and night.

I hope this helps anyone to trying to achieve a party or night out look! Please feel free to comment with any further questions. x.
