FIRST LOOK! Lea Michele for L’Oreal!

L’Oreal has just released their first image of Lea Michele as their new brand ambassador!

The Glee actress, 26, is making $1 million as the face of L’Oreal.

Miss Michele, who dates co-star Cory Monteith, said that she was thrilled to front the beauty giant, as she has long been fascinated by make-up.

‘Growing up on stage, I was introduced to makeup at a young age and I will never forget the first time I tried on a L’Oréal Paris iconic lipstick,’ she said in a statement.

‘It was instant glamour and I’ve been hooked ever since!’

She added that the brand’s famous slogan is one that resonates with her.

‘It wasn’t until I was a bit older that I fully understood the brand’s message of a woman’s worth, which I wholeheartedly agree with.’

The $1million contract will see Miss Michele follow in the footsteps of actresses including Eva Longoria, Rachel Weisz and Andie MacDowell.

Can’t wait to see the rest of the campaign!

Lea Michele bargain hunts, and “always looks for half-price sales”

Lea Michele may be a huge star making big bucks, but the actress admits she still hunts for good deals! So what influences Lea’s personal style?

“New York City really does,” Michelle tells PEOPLE. “I think growing up in New York, and seeing the effortless style and the street style [that it's known for] has modeled my style.”

Since Glee primarily shoots on the West Coast, the star brings a piece of home with her when she returns to set. “I wear lots of black in L.A.,” she jokes.

Recently, Michele has upped her fashion game, stepping out on the red carpet in Pucci, Versace and Zac Posen, but her personal shopping habits aren’t as glamorous. “I’m not a big spender,” she admits.”I still always look for the half-price sales.”

But like most women, she does splurge every so often. “Every six months or so, I will do the one nice bag, or the one nice pair of shoes, or the one nice piece of jewelry,” Michele says.

The actress’s latest big purchase? Bling. “I decided to buy a nice necklace, ring and earrings so that I have a set to wear every single day.”

Get The Look: Lea Michele 2012 MET Ball

All eyes were on Lea Michele when she stepped onto the red carpet at the 2012 MET Ball yesterday evening. Celebrity Makeup Artist Melanie Inglessis was the visionary behind the starlet’s glamorous beauty look. Melanie put the focus on Lea’s eyes by lining them with a deep plum liner and then layered copper toned eye shadows on the actress’s lids. Using a soft crease brush, she blended the edges of the liner with the shadow to create definition and give that smokey eye effect. Melanie then upped the drama by swiping a dark eye shadow over the liner and added two coats of black mascara for a finishing touch.

To offset the intensity of the eyes, Melanie kept the rest of Lea’s face simple: she added a rosy flush of color on her cheekbones and opted for a natural lip, using a lipstick only to enhance Lea’s own lip color.
