Get The Look – Glee's Lea Michele

glee-upfront-lea-michele.jpgWe’ve been all a-buzz about Fox’s new show for fall, Glee.  We’re suckers for musicals and teen dramadies so Glee gets us from both sides.  We couldn’t wait to catch the premiere Tuesday night after the American Idol final performances.  Did you tune in too?   

After watching the first episode Lea Michele‘s character, Rachel, is clearly the one to watch.  Mark our words, she will be the breakout star of the show.  Lea rocked the red carpet at Tuesday night’s UpFronts after party with simple yet sexy makeup.  Her bronzed glow, sultry eyes and classic nude lip are truly covet worthy and totally attainable.  Recreate her look using the products below. 

Face/Cheeks

For that pop of peach on Lea’s cheek, pick up Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush.  Dust it on the apples and blend up the cheek bones towards your hairline. $19.50, sephora.com

Lips

For the ultimate glossy nude lip turn to CoverGirl Wetslicks Amazement Lipgloss in No Care Bare.  Its hint of breath freshening mint and slightly pinkish nude hue make it a perfect choice.  Dab a bit of concealer on lips before applying to provide a neutral even base for the color. $6.25, drugstore.com

Eyes

This look is all about the eyes.  Smokey liner, full, voluminous lashes and a soft shimmering shadow on the lid.

Sweep a golden bronze shadow across the lid to add a hint of sparkle and warmth to the eye. Try Smashbox Single Eyeshadow in Brazilian Bronze $16, beauty.com

Lining eyes with a kohl pencil allows you to easily smudge out the line.  Black would be too harsh so a soft brown like Rimmel London Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Sable Brown is a perfect choice.  Not only is it uber-affordable, it applies like a dream, gliding along the lash line with ease. $3.49, drugstore.com

Last but not least, we need full, long, luxurious lashes to complete our look.  CoverGirl Lashblast Luxe Mascara in Black Platinum takes your lashes to the next level.  Spring boarding off the success of the original Lashblast, the Luxe version adds a bit of shimmer to enhance your eye color. $7.99, drugstore.com
