Get the Look: Lea Michele in Avon
You guys know I'm a huge fan of Avon-- and I'm also shamelessly in love with Glee. Today's post combines both of those loves. I'll show you how you can achieve celebrity Lea Michele's make up at with the same Avon products used to create her flawless look.
Celebrity Makeup Artist Melanie Inglessis was behind Lea Michele's beauty application at the recent Met Ball. 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 that smokey eye effect. Melanie then upped the drama (which you know I love) by swiping a dark eye shadow over the liner and adding two coats of black mascara.
To offset the intensity of the eyes, Melanie kept the rest of Lea’s face simple: she added a rosy flush of color on her cheekbones and opted for a natural lip, using a pale lipstick to enhance Lea’s own lip color.
