Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Megan Fox


Actress Megan Fox is the reason why I *love* dark-haired chicks – they are just so damn sexy!

Megan Fox Makeup Tutorial

For luminous skin like Megan’s, mix a dime size of luminizer or liquid bronzer into your regular foundation. Add concealer on problem areas and set with a layer of translucent powder. Create that healthy flush with a blush applied along the cheekbones.

You will never see Megan without perfect brows. To achieve the look, getting your eyebrows done regularly is a must. Fill in any sparse areas with a pencil or powder and finish with an eyebrow gel to seal in the look. Line all of your upper lash line and only the outer corner on the bottom with a gunmetal eyeshadow like MAC Knight Divine. Brighten the inner corners with a shimmery beige or gold color and add false lashes to finish the look.

Megan sure loves having a bit color on her lips. Pucker up with a raspberry color like MAC Lipgelee in Lu-Be-Lu for her look on the left or try a coral lip color for her look on the right.

Megan’s Beauty Secret
“Staying under the sun is more useful than most people think. For example, when I start going on a beach and bathing in salty sea water, my skin condition improves considerably.”

So go out there and enjoy some sun but remember to throw on sunscreen with at least SPF30!

  1. hi. just asking does mac prep & prime eye work as eyeshadow base? or should i get them paint pots & shadesticks?

    thanks xOx

  2. Sandy, I personally *love* the Prep + Prime Eye as a base! I’ve tried using Paint Pots and Shadesticks and those work too but you have to pick one that matches the eyeshadow you use on top.

  3. Hey Phyllis!
    Just wondering. I have combination skin, rarely break out, pores are pretty hard to see. Just to even me out, do you know of any sheer foundations that would be less likely to clog my pores?


  4. Hey Phyllis!
