In our monthly Self-Directed series, we invite beauty and fashion influencers to direct their own editorial story and create the looks they love with the glam teams they trust. You’ll learn about their best-kept beauty secrets, favorite products, and more.
Today, Lea Michele is going to do things a little differently.
It’s not that the actress and singer hasn’t practiced full rein for an on-camera beauty look before. On the contrary, she has collaborated closely with makeup artist Melanie Inglessis since 2009, aka the year that Michele evolved from Broadway darling to household name, thanks to a buzzy new show called Glee. Seven years down the road to superstardom, the pair still makes a great team—there’s ample evidence of that in every consistently poised turn on the red carpet. That being said, Michele cops to having a certain beauty uniform—and when she arrives on set for her Self-Directed shoot, it’s with the intention to shake that up.
“[Melanie] and I have experimented with a ton of different looks at shoots and on carpets, but I’m pretty simple and I’m not one to go outside of the box too much,” she tells us. “I really know what works for me, and I like to stick with that. So to have the opportunity to play at this shoot is so much fun.”
Play they do—and once the shoot comes to a close, it’s pretty clear that Michele and Inglessis might have a few more go-to looks to add to their rotation. Keep reading to see how the actress, along with makeup artist Melanie Inglessis and hairstylist John D., craft each stunning look.
BYRDIE: Is there anything you do before a big event, before a red carpet, that gives you kind of like that confidence boost before you step out there?
LEA MICHELE: It’s important to look good and feel good. You can’t really know how you’re going to feel on any given day, but you can do your best to make yourself feel as good as possible and prep well for it. So I like to take a nice bath the night before and do a really good peel.
BYRDIE: Do you have a favorite?
LM: I have Dr. Gross’s peels ($16); they’re amazing! And I have a steam shower, so I steam in the morning before the event for a really long time and put a nice eye mask on my eyes. So I really do what I can. But the most important thing to feel good is to not be hungry, because if I’m hungry, I can’t take a good picture. It’s important to do what you can before events to look and feel good. And I’m really about wellness and self-care so I follow that routine on a day-to-day basis, but I’ll make sure to do it especially before a carpet.
BYRDIE: On that note, is there a pre-photo snack or meal that you know is going to give you enough energy all evening?
LM: I eat the same thing often every day. My breakfast usually consists of avocado toast, maybe an egg white with some greens, and a green juice. So I love having a really healthy, good breakfast to start the day. And then throughout the day, I like to eat on the lighter side because I don’t want to feel too heavy during the shoot. Plus, you have a lot of makeup on, so I like to eat a salad, just something light that will give me the energy that I need—definitely with a protein like quinoa or tofu. It’s important to eat foods that fuel you and give you energy because a lot of carbs will tire you out, or make you feel like you just want to cozy up. So I keep it light midday, and then at the end of the day, I’ll go home and eat whatever I want.
BYRDIE: What’s an ideal dinner for you?
LM: Pizza! Pizza and a glass of wine.
BYRDIE: Yes! Red or white?
LM: Red, 100%! I don’t like white wine. And I only keep organic red wine in my house because it has no sulfites. So it’s better for you—you get all the actual beneficial properties of the red wine and it also doesn’t give you a hangover. It’s amazing! The only downside is that it’s only good once you open it.
BYRDIE: That’s so good to know!
LM: The sulfites are what preserve wines. My favorite is Our Daily Red; it is fantastic organic red wine with zero sulfites.

For Lea Michele, diet and fitness is about much more than just looking good on a red carpet.
“It’s so important for me to stress that being healthy is not about being a gym rat. It’s not about being 90 lbs.,” she tells PEOPLE in the latest Wellness issue. “This is really how I live every single day.”
Her healthy habits include keeping her refrigerator and pantry completely vegan, starting her day with a green smoothie and finding plant-based restaurants near her home in Los Angeles. (Plant Food + Wine and Real Food Daily are a few favorites.)
When it comes to exercise, hot yoga, hiking and SoulCycle spin classes are her go-to workouts. “You have to look good, but you also have to feel good,” she says. “So I find workouts that take of both those things.”
That mind-body connection has helped the Scream Queens star through some of the most difficult points in her life – like the death of long-term boyfriend and Glee costar Cory Monteith.
“You always have to have faith, because life is going to throw things at you. You just have trust that there is a plan,” says Michele, who is currently working on her second album. “I really pride myself on the people that I surround myself with and how I take care of myself, so my ground is stable beneath me.”
Finding what worked for her body didn’t happen overnight, though. As an L.A. transplant filming her first few seasons of Glee, “you can see that my weight fluctuates a lot because I was really figuring out how to make things work here,” she says. The native New Yorker (and Broadway star since she was 8-years-old) was thrown when she wasn’t getting her steps in on a regular basis.
“I had more time in my trailer, more time in my car and less time walking around,” she says. “That’s when I realized how important it was for me, personally, to include activities and movement in my daily life.”
Now, after recently celebrating her 30th birthday, Michele says she’s in “the best place I’ve ever been” thanks to rigorous workouts, weekly trips to the local Korean spa – and the occasional cheat day with pasta or pizza.
“I’ve never loved my body more than I do right now,” she says. “And I’m so grateful that I feel that way.”
