Celebrity makeup artist Melanie Inglessis created Lea Michele‘s Met Ball makeup concept last night. Here are the deets on how to recreate it.
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 by swiping a dark eye shadow over the liner and added two coats of black mascara for a finishing touch. 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 lipstick only to enhance Lea’s own lip color.
