LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- ‘Glee’ Star Lea Michele looked absolutely beautiful at the 23rd Annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards this weekend in her pink off-the-shoulder Zac Posen mini.
She is proving herself to be quite the red carpet stunner! She positively glowed thanks to ‘Glee’s’ Makeup Artist Melanie Inglessis, who has worked with Lea for several events, as well as stars Kelly Osbourne, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
“We went for a ‘modern day’ ballerina look,” reveals Melanie, who says that “Lea is very much part of the creative process. We work together to come up with the look… the whole team… Hair Stylist Mark Townsend, Stylist Estee Stanley, myself and Lea. We all discuss the look and suggest things. I personally think that this is a very important part of the process, it is a collaboration. I truly believe that when a glam squad is not in tune, it shows on the red carpet.”
“Lea has such an iconic face that we always try to keep the makeup beautiful and not too edgy, which suits her personality perfectly. I think she likes to make a subtle statement versus a bold one.”
GET THE LOOK: “I wanted to keep Lea’s makeup simple, yet flawless and classic. It had to compliment her hair and dress without overpowering it.
For her face, I wanted her complexion to be flawless and bright so I started by applying COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Concealer under her eyes to make sure she looked wide awake followed by an overall base of Giorgio Armani Luminous Foundation. Then, I applied MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Powder to set the look followed by a highlighter. On Lea’s cheeks, I started with COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Plush Peach to create a warm flush of color, followed by Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder to further accentuate her cheekbones.
On the eyes, I wanted something natural, but still bold enough for the red carpet, so I applied COVERGIRL SmokyShadowBlast in Bronze Fire on the lid and crease and the white shade of COVERGIRL SmokyShadowBlast in Onyx Smoke to the brow bone and inner corner of the eye. Next, I added COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers in Cafe Au Lait to darken the crease for a little more drama, followed by COVERGIRL Perfect Blend Eyeliner in Black Brown. To lengthen and define Lea’s gorgeous lashes, I applied many coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Length Mascara in Black.
Since we decided to accentuate her eyes, I wanted to go more natural and just use a slight stain for her lips. I used Kevyn Aucoin Flesh Tone Lip Pencil followed by COVERGIRL Outlast Lipstain in Bit of Blossom.”
