SAG Awards: Most Improved beauty look – Lea Michele

January 30, 2011 |  6:36 pm

Don’t get me wrong, I think Lea Michele is gorgeous and always looks appropriate on the red carpet. But at tonight’s SAG Awards she looks especially fresh, youthful and glowing. It seems like she chopped her hair a bit and grew out her bangs and left her locks to flow in a few loose curls, which suits her age and look perfectly.

Her makeup also looked really clean and pretty and no wonder, her makeup artist Melanie Inglessis was inspired by a 1970’s Bianca Jagger -- a great reference for Lea Michele considering her dramatically dark hair and gorgeous brown eyes.

Inglessis started with Teint Miracle Lit From Within foundation from Lancome and YSL blush in Coral Sand. On her eyes, she swept Lancome’s 5 Pan Palette in Mauve Cherie and Ombre Magnetique in Ultra Lavande onto the lids. And Le Stylo waterproof eyeliner in Prune was applied to the lash line to continue the cool violet tones.

Her lips were left fairly sparse with just a touch of color in Lancome’s Pale Lip in order to keep her eyes a focus.
