Megan Fox Glamorous Neutral Makeup

This look is inspired by the signature neutral look worn my Megan Fox at many movie premieres and photo shoots. I think Megan has changed her style a bit lately, she wears more red lipstick now, but this is based more on her older natural but glamorous look. It's perfect for many occasions, for example weddings, special events, prom, or pretty much anytime you want to look sexy and elegant without looking too done up.

Battle of the Holiday Bulge - My Tips on Avoiding Weight Gain

It's that time of the year again when many of us gorge on deliciously decadent food and spend our free time indoors, lazing on the couch watching movies, entertaining with family and friends, or doing not much at all. As a result, we tend to put on some extra pounds during the Holiday season. For some this is just a part of the deal, but it doesn't have to be. You can still enjoy the Holidays without getting completely derailed from your diet and workout routine, without having to deny yourself every sweet indulgence.

I put together a video with my own tips and ideas how you can strike a balance between enjoying yourself and eating Holiday goodies, without packing on the pounds. If you're interested, check it out!

Sugar Plum Fairy Christmas Look

Tchaikovsky's  The Nutcracker was the inspiration behind this holiday makeup, namely the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. I wanted to create a look inspired by red-toned plum shades, mixed with shimmery light gold and some glitter for a bit of festive sparkle. I hope you enjoy this look! Happy Holidays everyone!

Sparkly Glitter Christmas Nails

I just love fancy nails at Christmas time, and nothing screams Christmas to me like deep red and gold. I decided to create these sparkly glittery nails, which I think are perfect for the holidays. When I had this on my nails, even my boyfriend commented how Christmasy it looked, and you know how men are about noticing things like nails!

Lady Gaga "Marry The Night" Music video makeup

One of Lady Gaga's makeup looks from her new music video caught my eye...

So I decided to recreate it! I personally love this look and would definitely wear this for a special night out somewhere. The look is focused around a defined crease line, winged eyeliner with pointed ends on the inner and outer corner, bold red lips, and strong brows.
