Lea Michele: Her Red Carpet Make-Up Bag.

Loved Lea Michele’s make-up at the Golden Globes. Celebrity makeup artist Melanie Inglessis talks about making up my favourite gleek:

Lea picked up an Oscar De La Renta pink dress, its lovely but its pink! We had to think carefully what we wanted to do with make up. I didn’t want a pink lips or smoky eyes. So after a little pow wow, we went for an overall luminous look..and a little pop of color on the lips! Super stylist Mark Towsend did this beautiful loose chignon!  Lea was in a great mood as you can tell with those pictures! she has the biggest smile!!

I prepped Lea’s skin with Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Glow to keep the skin fresh and hydrated. I applied Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation with a wet sponge to keep that dewey finish. Lancome Effacernes Concealer in Light Bisque, this is the best concealer on the market, it goes on really smoothly and stay put all night.

I wanted to create some definition on the eyes without making it a smoky eyes – Lancome  5 Ombres Palette in Craze Taupe was perfect for that..
I use #1 all over the eyes, from the lid to the brow bone, it sets as a beautiful highlighter. It is gorgeous under the brow bones as it catch the light.
#2 was applied just on the lid with a flat brush and #3 use in the crease, blending in with the other to colors to create depth.

I curl Lea’s very long lashes, then applied 2 coats of Lancome Hypnose Mascara in Black to give them a real fullness.
Once the Mascara is dry, with an angular brush I press on #5 really near the lash line.

Lancome Tropiques Minerale in Natural Sunkiss was brushed on lightly all over the facewith more definition on cheekbones, with the same brush strokes and dab Lancome Blush Subtil Sheer in Amourose on the apple of the cheeks for that healthy glow.

To finish the look I dabbed Lancome Exotic Orchid Lipstick on Lea’s lips, very natural, like a stain, no lip pencil, then to give it that pop of color I finish it with Lancome Chromed PinkLacquer. YES!! It was a darker lips than it looks on some of the pics…Maybe Lea’s just didn’t reapply as much as she should have ! Ha!  It was like a deep rasberry stain/gloss.

Lancome is available nationally at David Jones and Myer. Not all of the products used on Lea are available in Australia but we are getting the eyeshadow palette next month.
