Lea Michele’s braided updo hairstyle and soft smokey makeup at Comic-Con on July 11 was our favorite beauty look of the weekend. Get the details on her hairstyle and makeup!
Lea Michele, 28, may be gearing up for her new show, Scream Queens, this fall, but her Comic-Con hairstyle had us thinking she’s also set to be the braid queen this summer. Attending alongside co-star, Emma Roberts, 24, Lea’s updo and makeup made for an understated combo that was fresh for summer.
Nine Zero One Salon Co-Owner/Stylist Nikki Lee created Lea’s gorgeous braid. To get a similar look, apply a quarter-size amount of Redken Braid Aid 03 through dry hair to give fine texture an easier grip once you start braiding. Create a deep side part, and French braid each side, securing each end with an elastic. For a softer, more textured look like Lea’s, sprinkle a texturizing powder like Big Sexy Hair Powder Play over the braids and gently massage into the braids for an undone effect. Gather the braided pigtails into a knot off to the side at the nape of the neck, and secure with bobby pins.
Make Up For Ever Artist Mélanie Inglessis created an equally stunning makeup look on Lea, concentrating on a flawless complexion. To get the look, start with Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation, then use Make Up For Ever Uplight Face Luminizer Gel to highlight your cheek and brow bones. Keep the rest of your makeup simple with natural lips, slightly flushed cheeks and soft smokey eyes.

To match her summery hair and makeup, Lea wore a bright red Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 two-piece emsemble. The double-breasted jacket with plunging neckline featured cutout butterfly details, and was perfectly fitted to the actress’ toned body.
