Now's new columnist, Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan, 25, reveals her high street lust-haves and beauty tricks.

'When I started working at Corrie five years ago I didn't know what to wear and I had no idea why things looked good,' says Michelle.

'But now I learn so many tips from stylists and make-up artists and I can't wait to share them with you.

'I've always been a Now reader, so I'm really excited to be joining the team.

'People always ask me: ''How do you get your hair so big?'' and ''Where did you buy your dress from?'' I can't wait to say: ''Find out in my Now column!''

'You can trust me to give you great fashion and beauty tips because I'm really honest about everything.

'And I'm a high street girl who loves a bargain, just like you.

'So don't miss my new page in Now every week.'

Welcome to Now, Michelle! Have you planned your New Year's Eve outfit yet?

I don't want anything too fussy, but because it's a special occasion I want to buy something new.

I went online to boohoo.com and saw some jackets with matching shorts that I like.

Do you prefer shopping online?

Yes, at the moment.

I was working so much in December, I didn't have time to go out.

But somehow I got distracted and ended up shopping online for me!

What's your go-to party make-up look?

I like smoky eyes, false lashes and strong, dark lips.
