Lea Michele ruled the red carpet at the Emmy Awards last night. Her midnight blue Oscar de la Renta gown set the stage for celebrity make up artist Melanie Inglessis who was inspired by its’ timeless elegance and flirty ruffles to create an enhanced natural look with Reese Robert lashes.
“Lea’s beauty reminded us of a young Raquel Welch. So with a nod to the 60’s, we created a modern, flirty but elegant look for the evening. Reese Robert eyelashes in One Hot Mama were the perfect finishing touch to the make up. “
- The strip lashes added volume, length and sexiness to the modern cat eyes effect.
- Inglessis advises “I always prefer cutting the strip in three equal pieces, making it more flexible and easier to apply the lashes”
Makeup Artist Tip: To add that extra oomph, like Lea, line the outer corners of the eye with a deep teal gel eyeliner. I love and rely on MAC LiquidLast Liner in Blue Herizon.
