Lea Michele Beauty

The Glee star looked so glam at the gala May 7—here’s how you can copy her look!

Lea Michele was the picture of sophisticated elegance when she stepped onto the 2012 Met Ball red carpet. Lea, 25, look so beautiful thanks to Celebrity Makeup Artist, Melanie Inglessis, who created the  glamorous beauty look.

Melanie put the focus on Lea’s eyes by lining them with a deep plum liner and then layered copper toned eye shadows on the actress’s lids. Using a soft crease brush, she blended the edges of the liner with the shadow to create definition and give a smokey eye effect. Melanie then upped the drama by swiping a dark eye shadow over the liner and added two coats of Avon ExtraLasting in Extreme Black for a finishing touch.

To offset the intensity of Lea’s eyes, Melanie kept the rest of Lea’s face simple: she added a rosy flush of color with  Avon Be Blushed in Icy Petal on her cheekbones and opted for a natural lip, using a lipstick  to enhance Lea’s own lip color.
