Jan/10/2013 at 11:00 AM ET

Best makeunder: Katy Perry. In a departure from all those blues, pinks and purples Perry usually sports, makeup artist Todd Delano used “rich, earthy tones” on his Valentino-clad client, he tells PEOPLE. After priming and prepping her skin with Koh Gen Do powder, he added Kevyn Aucoin “Dolline” blush to the apples of her cheeks, buffing Nars “Luster” over it “for an apricot glow,” he explains. “I like to start with a matte blush and add shimmer second.” For eyes, Delano chose Nars “Sophia” shadow — a warm chocolate color — and added dimension on the corners with “Embark” shadow from M.A.C. A little gel liner and white pencil defined and opened up the eyes, and “Whirl” liner and “Syrup” lipstick by M.A.C. completed the big winner’s low-key look.

Who's Behind Lea Michele's Sexy 'Glee' Makeover?

Lea Michele promised us a Glee makeover — and a Glee makeover we’ve seen!

The actress, who plays college freshman Rachel Berry on the show, says her character has had a sexy style upgrade this year, and she owes it all to Glee creator Ryan Murphy.

“It was Ryan’s idea to do this shift for Rachel, having her become a little more grown up, a little more New York,” Michele told PEOPLE recently while working with Candie’s. “I basically pick out the outfits with our costume designer, and we take all of the photos to Ryan to approve. It’s really collaborative.”

But it goes beyond the costumes: Rachel’s hair and makeup are more major, too, again, thanks to Murphy.

“He’s so involved with everything — what shoes I wear, what kind of eyeliner I put on,” she says. “I don’t know how he does it. He has so many shows, but still finds the time to help with this.”

And though we’ve been loving Rachel’s sensual smoky eyes this season, Michele says that’s probably her least favorite part of her character’s new look. “I’ve been trying to tone that down a little bit,” she admits. “It’s a b*tch to take off at night!” Tell us: Are you loving Rachel Berry’s revamped look? Or did you prefer her high school makeup and clothes?

Lea Michele is always happy to lend a hand (literally!) to a good cause, and did just that Saturday, when she joined Candie’s for a day of shopping with five girls who are currently patients at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Michele (a Candie’s spokeswoman) met up with the ladies, all between the ages of 15 and 18, at Kohl’s in Los Angeles, giving them each a $500 gift card and goodie bags — and some of her style expertise.

“I’m excited,” she told PEOPLE before the event began. “It’s really awesome. Candie’s is such an amazing company, and I’m excited to be here honoring them, meet these girls and spend some time with them.”

You'll Never Believe What Ruined Lea Michele's Spray Tan

Nov/14/2012 at 12:30 PM ET

We’ve endured our fair share of beauty mishaps, but nothing comes close to what happened to Lea Michele recently.

The Glee star stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday and shared a story about the time a dog peed all over her right after she got a spray tan. Yep — a pup had the nerve to make a wee-wee on Rachel Berry! Here’s what happened:

Lea Michele Describes Her Perfect Party Dress

We’re used to seeing her in floor-length gowns on the red carpet, but for a night out, Lea Michele prefers something with a shorter hemline.

“The perfect party dress is a cute mini,” the Glee star told PEOPLE at the Candie’s Virtual Pop-Up Shop launch this weekend in Los Angeles. “But it has to stand on its own, you shouldn’t need a lot of accessories, hair or makeup,” she added. “Something that you can just throw on and it’s fabulous in its own sense.”

And even though she’s the unofficial spokeswoman for skin-tight silhouettes and daring plunging necklines that require strategically placed double-stick tape, Michele says it’s also important to be comfortable. “You can’t say, ‘If I suck this part in or don’t eat!’”

But a mini isn’t appropriate for every occasion — like a black-tie wedding or if you’re a star like Michele, a huge awards show — which is why the actress also says it’s important to dress for where you’re going. “I really loved [my dress] at the first Golden Globes I attended. I had this beautiful black Oscar de la Renta gown that I wore,” Michele said. “I felt like a princess that day and it just felt so perfect for that event.”

Lea Michele's Surprising Reaction to Her New L'Oréal Paris Gig

She’s one of the biggest stars on television, has a smoking hot boyfriend and regularly shows off her body in sexy plunging gowns on the red carpet. However, Lea Michele is still stunned about being named the newest face of L’Oréal Paris.

“Growing up I was never really considered the typical beauty,” Michele tells WWD. “So the fact that I’m now the face of such an incredible company and brand is so awesome — that they would look at me and consider me is unbelievable.”

Maybe she’s just being modest. But in case Michele needs a self-confidence boost, we’d like to direct her attention to this stunning image, which was snapped while she was getting ready for a party for the beauty brand in New York City on Monday.
