It’s time to sneak some color into your beauty routine before summer ends. The easiest way to add an instant pop to your look? Swap out your traditional black or brown liner for a bright, colorful alternative shade, like Lea Michele‘s sexy green moment from the Fox TCA Summer party in L.A.
The mastermind behind the sultry look, celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen, reveals the details behind the star’s unexpected smoky eye and liner combo, below.
The gorgeous eye look, which Andersen describes as “summer night sexy,” was chosen to complement the star’s sexy lace and floral Marchesa dress.
“I wanted her to look sultry so I opted for a darker smoky eye,” Andersen tells PeopleStyle. “My first question is always” ‘What are you wearing?'”
The sexy emerald hue that lined the star’s smoky eye was created with the Estée Lauder Double Wear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner in Blackened Emerald, and rimmed all the way around Michele’s eyes.
“The eyeliner is actually dark green, which I pulled out one of the colors on the dress for a subtle hint of something unexpected,” she explains.

And Andersen loves to bring attention to Michele’s eyes. “Lea has beautiful eyes, great skin and a contagious smile, so it’s fun to play up any of them,” she tells PeopleStyle. “But I loved seeing the shift of color in her eyes when we used the dark green. Her brown eyes appeared to be more amber.”
Keeping the focus on the eyes, Andersen wrapped up the look with a creamy pinky-nude lipstick (Avon Ultra Color Matte Lip in Naturally Nude), which she topped with a touch of lip balm for a slight sheen.
