Get The Look: Lea Michele

6 Feb


Want a Clean and Flawless look like Lea Michele?

Makeup artist Melanie Inglessis tells how he she took created a flawless face for Lea Michele at the 2011 sag awards.

Take a look and try it yourself.

Concealer: Inglessis used Lancome Teint Miracle Lit-From-Within Makeup, Effacernes Waterproof Concealer, and Teint Miracle Instant Retouch Pen as well as YSL Blush Variation in Coral Sand to give Michele a smooth complexion.

Eyes: On the eyes, she used Lancome Color Design 5 Pan Palette in Mauve and Ombre Magnetique in Ultra Lavande to give the lids a pop of purple color. Then she thickly lined the eyes with Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof EyeLiner in Prune and pumped up Michele’s lashes with Lancome Hypnose Custom Volume Mascara in Black.

Lips: Inglessis opted for a sophisticated nude lip, using Lancome Color Design Lipcolor in Pale Lip.

Hair: hairstylist Mark Townsend said "I started with clean, just-washed hair for this look. Then I added in a drop of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum. The oil blend in this line–with coconut and almond oils–absorbs instantly to nourish and smooth dry hair. As soon as I put in the serum I was immediately able to apply another styling product."

To add a bit of texture and volume, Townsend pumped Dove Body & Lift Mousse throughout damp hair and blew dry five-inch sections with a round brush. "Wrap two to three inch sections of hair around a one-inch curling iron, away from the face, to create big, flowing waves as opposed to curls," he says. "While curling, I made sure to alternate the time I held each curl in the iron. The longer you apply heat, the sharper the curl. I alternated the curl time between two and ten seconds to create different shapes throughout the hair that wouldn’t fold together."

"I wanted to purposely create the fluff at the top of her head, so I had Lea flip her hair upside down. I rubbed a pea-size amount of the new Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Smoothing Cream between my hands, and then I raked it through the hair from the bottom up to eliminate flyaways and create shine and texture without compromising the waves throughout the hair," he says.

To finish Lea’s look, Townsend sprayed Dove Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray with Natural Movement (Aerosol) throughout the hair to make sure the style stayed in place but still had lots of movement.
