Lea's 'Marie Claire' Cover Is Almost Makeup-Free!

Once again the former Rachel Berry is a major source of beauty inspiration, specifically when it comes to hair and bangs! Lea Michele covers Marie Claire with minimal makeup and long bangs. The former Glee actress and current Scream Queens star is wearing little else on the November 2015 cover, opting only for a cozy, camel-colored, and baggy sweater that falls off her shoulders. She covers up just enough but isn't afraid to show off her olive skin and shapely legs.

Michele has an on-off relationship with bangs. She often does heavy fringe and it looks amazing on her. Then she'll ditch it and there will be no bangs sightings on her for months.

The bangs for this Marie Claire cover are long and subtle. They can be swept to the side or center-parted. They are not heavy nor are they straight or severe. They just... are. It's a versatile look, almost like long layers that can be pushed around to create a variety of styles.

It's also a non-committal look, since it's so "are they or aren't they?"

Even so, it's just another instance where Lea Michele is a major source of bangs inspo. If you are on the fence about bangs, look at Michele's hair on this cover.

Miss Lea Michele keeps her makeup simple, with dusty pink lips. Her bangs look to be in the growing out phase, which always seems like a problematic stage, since they are hard to manage without bobby pins, the ability to blow upwards to get them out of your eyes, or patience. But they are still peek-a-boo and sexy, without being sloppy.

If you are nervous about committing to bangs, why not try the super long bangs that L. Michele is rocking?

There was a lot going on here, from the ombre color to the thick waves to all that volume. But she added a little texture to the bangs, so the entire shape was uniform.

This long, curly coif was total a total diva 'do. But the bangs kept it modern and prevented it from feeling too stiff or overly done.
