Glee star Lea Michele wowed the country last night with her rendition of "America the Beautiful." She also wowed us with her makeup palette, which looked perfect and subtle even under incredibly hot lights and the imperfection-spotting lenses of HD cameras. To find out which products her makeup artist Melanie Inglessis used to create it, just keep reading.
Lancôme makeup artist Melanie Inglessis created Lea Michele's peachy keen makeup last night using Lancôme Color Design Five Pan Palette in Taupe Craze (which comes out next month) on her eyes. For a pop of color, Blush Subtil in Sheer Amourose ($30) was applied to Lea's cheeks, and a combination of L'Absolu Lipcolor in Exotic Orchid ($29) and La Laque Fever Lipshine in Chromed Pink ($27) was used on her lips to create a pretty, soft pink.
First Nars came out with the ever-popular Orgasm blush, a peachy-pink with shimmer, followed by Super Orgasm, a peachy-pink with gold shimmer. And this year for its holiday collection, the luxe brand is going for something unexpectedly mellow with Sex Appeal ($26), a gorgeously soft and subtle peach. Call it Nars Orgasm "lite," if you will. Wear it on the apples of the cheeks for a hint of color or as a contour to make a bolder, brighter blush stand out. Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used the shade on Blake Lively earlier this month (a look that the majority of you were loving), while makeup artist Melanie Inglessis recently tried it out on Kylie Minogue. For something a bit more affordable, try Revlon's Matte Blush in Peach ($9) or customize your own shade with Physicians Formula's multitoned Blush Palette in Peach ($10).
Looking for a great lip color for the new season? Then look to Lea Michele for something daring yet wearable. At last night's season two screening and DVD release party for Glee, her bold, wine-stained lips were the focus of her look. Makeup artist Melanie Inglessis (who also did Lea's makeup for the Emmys) chose NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Volga ($25), a deep aubergine shade, to complement the actress's lacy blue dress. Top off with a warm pink blush and camel-toned shadow, like one of the medium shades from Revlon's Beyond Natural Eye Shadow in Spice ($8), and you have a beautifully flattering makeup palette, just like Lea.
