Leona Lewis as we know it has a immaculate talent. Not just for singing but also for acting. We have seen her star in the movie, ‘Walking on Sunshine’. Leona has landed the role of Grizabella in Broadway’s revival of hit musical Cats. With just a few weeks to go before the show’s previews kick off, the singer has been hard at work getting ready to make her Broadway debut.
“I’ve had a fitting of the costume, we haven’t got into make-up yet,” she told Hello magazine. “That will be later down the line. There’s sketches and drawings of what Grizabella looks like, so I’m looking forward to really, really getting into character.”. We are all very excited to see her perform and she is very thrilled about her role.
Leona admitted that although she’s not feeling too nervous currently, she thinks it may be a different story on opening night.“I’m sure I will be nervous,” she confessed. “Right now we’re in rehearsals so it’s just easing our way into it. But for sure, on the big night, it will be nerve-wracking. I get nervous before every performance.”
When she’s not busy rehearsing, the Bleeding Love singer has been giving her Instagram followers serious beauty envy, as she shows off her gorgeous make-up looks. Admitting that at the moment she’s “loving rocking a red lip and a red nail”, Leona revealed that she tries to follow a key beauty rule she has picked up over the years. However, the red look really does suit her and bring out her features!
“I’d say to accentuate rather than trying cover-up,” she said. “I’m all about accentuating the eyes, but you know, not having too much. Maybe an eye and then a nude lip, or maybe a pop of colour on the lip and keeping the eye very natural.” When it comes to her eye make-up, the star often has her fans coveting her voluminous long lashes – and she revealed that she loves false lashes to give her a boost.
“With the KISS lashes, especially the Blooming collection, I like that they’re really fluffy and that they’re tapered at the end,” she explained. “It looks natural but you can still get that fullness and I’m definitely a bit of a lash freak. I really like something that looks natural – and it has to feel good and look good. Their lashes are pretty perfect for that.”
The singer has also majorly upped the nail art. Regularly sharing sneak peeks at her favourite designs. “I love nail art, I remember when I went to Japan a while ago, I would go and get crazy, crazy nail designs. So it’s really cool because in the KISS collection as well as the more natural nails they’ve got a lot of nail art which is what I love, and they’re really easy to use as well.”
