Glee Actress Lea Michele On The Cover Of Allure December 2011 Issue

Lea Michele: Her Allure Photo Shoot

Lea Michele bares it all: the Glee rumors, what it was like to strip down on stage, and why she’s proud to be a diva. Check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from her cover shoot with Norman Jean Roy. For more of our interview with the star, pick up the December issue of Allure, on newsstands November 22. For more exclusives, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.


Michele is confident in her unconventional beauty. “Have I been asked to change anything? Uh-huh. Uh-huh. When I was 15, my mother and I went to meet a manager who said, ‘You have to get a nose job in order for me to work with you,’” Michele tells us. “My mother would say to me, ‘Barbra Streisand never got a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And this was before I really even knew who Barbra was. I just knew that she was, like, the messiah for girls like me.”

Michele has heard the stories of her diva-like behavior. At a Time magazine party, when a photographer asked who she was, she reportedly replied, “Sarah Palin”—a remark that was taken to be a snotty “Don’t you know who I am?” “I was being silly,” Michele says. “But anyway, that’s a huge thing I learned…. Not everybody knows you and has the same sense of humor. At the same time, if I couldn’t be myself, I’d lose my mind.”

“I came from the theater world, where the word ‘diva’ was awesome,” she continues. “But it’s different in Los Angeles. And this all happened to me so quickly. But I came to L.A., and the first audition I went on was for Glee. And I was on the show two months later and had a very different life.” Here, Michele poses in a lace-and-silk-satin bra by Agent Provocateur and Norma Kamali briefs.

Like many young actresses in the spotlight, Michele became the subject of eating-disorder rumors when she suddenly looked very thin during the summer of 2010. Not so, she says—the weight loss was due to a surgery she had because of an infection in her jaw. “I’m half Italian,” says the actress. “I can eat some bitches under the table.” Polyamide elastane bra by Stella McCartney.

How to achieve Lea Michele’s look- Celebrity Beauty Fashion Trend: Winged Eyeliner

Here are a few tips:

1.) Fill in your brows, no sexy eye is complete without a nice thick brow

2.) Find a good liquid or cream liner. Use a small pointed brush or a pointed eyeliner pencil or pen.  Also, by using a black eyeshadow to start the wing off before using the eyeliner. Starting your liner at the corner of the eyelid extending it outward to the corner of your eye ending it with a wing out movement.  Then go back over the eyeshadow with a liquid eyeliner to seal in the look.

3.) Dramatic eyes call for a nude lip. Keep it classy and sassy. Keeping lips simple and putting  focus only on the eyes not the mouth.

4.) Curling large sections of your hair with a small barrel curling iron,  then comb lightly comb the curls out and spray with a light hairspray. To avoid frizzy curls finish off the look with some shine serum or shine spray of your choice.

Fun Trend This Season The Art Of Layering Bracelets Seen At New York Fashion Week

16 Sep Trend-Alert-Fashion-Stack-Bracelets-500545

When it comes to jewelry here at New York Fashion Week, more is more. Front rowers are layering up their wrists with five or six bracelets at a time. The key to the perfect stack? It’s fashionmatics! Just take one chunky watch, add some Eddie Borgo spikes, throw in a few friendship bracelets and you’re good to go.

A fun trend to try this season is the art of layering bracelets. The key to making this look work with your outfit is to choose a color in your outfit you want to highlight. So if you’re wearing mostly casual neutral/beige hues, you’ll probably want to steer more towards earthy tones. Earthy tone accessories also go well with corals, orange, yellow, brown, grey, denim and any prints that consist of any of the above colors. Try mixing and matching different materials like leather, enamel, metal and rope.

If your outfit consists of bolder colors, like red, pink, blue or black, you may want to consider more silver or gunmetal tone pieces.

The trendy way to layer bracelets is to layer with a watch (or two) from the same color family, along with a couple statement rings.

To add some more interest, try painting your nails in a funky color, like a matte creamy seafoam or pastel yellow. Have fun with it!

Beauty tips to slim your face

Contouring and highlighting your face can bring out your cheek bones, shorten your nose, slim your face and rid you of a double chin. Here’s how to do it …1.“Think of your face as a canvas,” explains Thomas. Once you’ve applied foundation to even out your complexion you need to shade and highlight areas to create shape. Think of the principles of light and dark — any areas made darker will appear as though they’re receding, and anything made lighter appear as though it’s coming forward.2.“I think the easiest product to use is a bronzing powder without too much shimmer,” explains Thomas. Always start with a little on your brush and build it up gradually.3.Begin by building your cheek bones. To do this, add a little bronzer below your cheek bone, from the hairline to towards the apples of your cheek, in a wedge-like shape. This trick is especially good for women who have very round faces. “[Contouring is] all about reshaping your face and giving it sharper edges — you can never have too-high cheek bones,” says Thomas.4. To make a wide or very round forehead appear narrower, shade just the temples or sides of the forehead, and to slim a wide nose, apply the bronzer down the sides of your nose. Want your nose to appear shorter? Shade the underside of the tip.

5. Disguise a double chin by shading the area under your jaw line. Blending is key in contouring your face — the idea is that you can’t see where the contouring starts and stops.

6. If you don’t have deep-set eyes (ie lids that are still visible when your eyes are open), make them pop by shading along the crease line. Do this either with the bronzer or an eyeshadow that’s a shade darker than the colour you’ll wear.

7. To bring areas of your face forward, thus emphasising them, do the opposite to contouring and use a highlighter (most likely a shimmery powder a bit lighter than your skin colour). The areas you want to do this to are your new-found cheek bones, and the centre of your eyelids. When it comes to your lips, dab a lighter lip shade or illuminating cream just in the middle of them.

Contouring and highlighting your face can take a little practice, but as Thomas says, “Once you start, you’ll want to do it every day.” His tip: try it next time you have a big event coming up and take note of how you look in photos taken on the day. “People in film, TV and pictures can’t live without [this trick].”

NB: You don’t have to use a bronzer and highlighter to do this make-up trick — darker and lighter foundations can be used as well.
