Ooh la la, Lea — This L’Oreal contract sure agrees with you! Lea Michele is only a few pics into her role as L’Oreal Paris Brand Ambassador, but we think it’s going pretty darn well so far.

Lea is no stranger to makeup and has had a long relationship with the brand, saying in a recent press release, “[g]rowing 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'Oreal Paris iconic lipstick — it was instant glamour and I've been hooked ever since!”

She continues, “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. L'Oreal Paris encourages women to embrace their beauty and celebrate their self worth. I feel very honored to be working with L'Oreal Paris to help spread that message to young women."

Since she began playing the role of Rachel Berry on Glee in 2009, Lea has been put in the spotlight as a role model for young women. She has spoken candidly about other people's encouragement that she get a nose job (“F--- them!”) and has maintained a healthy body image despite being under a constant microscope.

Gold star, Lea.
