Lea Michele On Being The New Face Of L'Oreal: 'I Was Never Considered The Typical Beauty'

27 September 2012 by

It was only last week that L’Oreal Paris announced their brand new face. Lea Michele has joined the super-glam crew and her brand new beauty contract explains why she wasn't walking the red carpet at the Emmy Awards on Sunday night. Yep, while her fellow telly stars were donning their glad rags for the red carpet, the Glee actress was squirreled away in a New York studio shooting the gorgeous L’Oreal campaign. Well, fair enough.

Speaking to WWD, Lea revealed she's been using L’Oréal her whole life. Course she has! 'It’s so amazing for me because I’m from New York and growing up I was never really considered the typical beauty, so the fact that I’m now the face of such an incredible company and brand is so awesome'. We say she's definitley worth it (see what we did there?).

'That they would look at me and consider me is unbelievable. I think I have a type of look that is very relatable, that’s different and unique that girls can look at and say "I feel like I look like her"' She's not wrong - and with an Italian mother and Spanish father, Lea will certainly appeal to L’Oreal’s global customers. 

So what products does she love the most? 'I’m obsessed with their eye makeup remover, Clean Artiste, it’s incredible, I’ve been using their EverCreme shampoos for such a long time and their mascaras are the best mascaras in the world.' We couldn’t agree more. 

As for her top beauty tips, she recommends always washing your face and she avoids wearing makeup when she's not working 'to give my skin a chance to breathe.' Really, Lea? As beauty addicts, we’re not so sure - but who are we to argue with a mega TV star?
