Megan Fox: Beauty Secrets...

I was browsing the Marie Claire website and stumbled accross an interview with Megan Fox spilling her beauty secrets & just had to share! Megan Fox is an all round babe, who wouldnt want to know the secret to that flawless looking skin and those amazing tousled locks right?!

1. My beauty philosophy is ‘less is more’, so my daily routine consists of washing my face thoroughly and moisturising with La Roche-Posay sunscreen. I drink lots of water and think it’s important to get lots of sleep.

2. I always wanted to be blonde when I was little, like Barbie and Pamela Anderson, but it would really damage my hair. It was exotic to me, as my entire family has dark hair. If I did it, I would go white- blonde- really platinum.

3. I always carry Armani Code fragrance as it reminds me of growing up in Florida, as well as Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers and a hand sanitiser. I also keep a lot of moisturisers with me when I travel as the climate changes can dry out my skin.

4. My definition of beauty is simplicity, elegance and sensuality. Ava Gardner is my beauty icon. I think that when a woman is in harmony with herself and remains true to her values, she will glow naturally. Fememininity doesn’t depend on what you wear or how you look. It’s an attitude.

5. Sport gives me positive energy so I exercise everyday with my trainer, Harley Pasternak. Each circuit is 45 minutes long and I lift weights but never do cardio.

6. I eat five times a day and don’t diet, but I do eat healthily- mostly raw and vegan food, with no dairy. It’s not always possible with travel and filming, but I try. I also take supplements like silica and fish oil religiously.

7. I try to keep my make-up fresh, clean and pretty on the red carpet. My signature look is red lipstick worn with plain eyes, so I apply a light foundation, then on my cheeks I use blush or sometimes the same lipstick that I’m wearing. Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani Lipstick in 400 contrasts well with my pale complexion and dark hair.

8. Even when I’m working I don’t like wearing too much make-up, but when I’m on my own I go bare-faced as I like to give my skin a rest.

9. For a date night I go for beachy, natural bed hair. Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray gives my hair that wavy, thick texture.

10. I have to wash my face every 12 hours and then moisturise. I only take showers as I don’t like sitting in bath water. After my shower I moisturise with Grapeseed Oil from Whole foods. It’s a great moisturiser and lighter than olive oil.

Bioderma Miracle...

Ok, so all you beauts out there have probably read a million and one reviews of this stuff by now, but i just wanted to add my 2 cents in to all the hype!

Lets get all the science-y facts out of the way first...  At the cutting edge of innovation, BIODERMA has pioneered micellar solutions. Specially formulated for sensitive, normal to dry skins, the Sensibio H2O micelle solution gently cleanses face and eyes. It removes water-resistant make-up.
The micelles contained in its formula effectively micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance (soap-free, physiological pH). Soothing and decongesting active ingredients prevent the feelings of irritation often caused by cleansing.

My verdict... This stuff is amazing! The post title says it all! Iv got quite sensitive skin thats prone to red patches, I have an oily forehead and nose with a few dry patches in there to. Iv lost count on how many different cleansers and toners iv tried (iv even tried the Clinique 3 Step program thing, lets just say it was a bad experience!) anyways, after seeing a few fave beauty bloggers rave about this "magic water" & how this is the only thing models will use to take off their makeup, i was sold and determined to get my hands on some (im such a sucker for a hyped up product!).

Im now a HUGE fan! I dont go away without it, i rarely use make up wipes anymore, all it takes is 3 to 4 cotton pads and swoosh, my make up is gone and my skin is left feeling clean & fresh. I used to find that after using face wipes, my skin would get tight and dry, after using this there is none of that! I use a combination of this and the Avene Thermal Spray as a toner and i have to say my skin has never felt or looked better!

As a contact lens wearer, i wanted something that could take off my eye makeup while i still had my lenses in and didn't irritate my eyes in the process, I can honestly say this product does not make my eyes sting or water at all. I do find it hard to take off stubborn water proof mascara with this product but the trick is to soak a cotton pad and hold it on your eye for a little bit and then gently wipe it away. I also love the fact that it comes in massive quantities, i always pick up the 500ml bottle! (im on my second!)

I usually pick mine up from ebay, i dont have one specific seller I buy it from, but i always make sure that whichever buyer i chose to purchase it from has a good feedback percentage. I think on pay day i may have to purchase the little 100ml bottle for when I travel, it looks so cute lol

Ramble over, and 2 cents given! what do you beauts out there think of it? I fo sho cant live without it! Happy Friday!
