Lea Michele went mostly makeup-free in scenes for her new TV show Scream Queens.

The glamorous 28-year-old actress portrays sorority pledge girl Hester in the comedy, a nerdy young woman who suffers from scoliosis and wears a neck brace.

Lea glammed-down for the part and much to the surprise of some of her fans, she doesn’t wear any makeup in Scream Queens scenes.

"So that's what I look like when I wake up in the morning,” she told Access Hollywood of her character’s look in the programme. “The neck brace takes it to another level."

Lea went pretty much all-natural with her hairstyle too while playing Hester.

She does not possess straight hair in real life.

"That's my real natural curly hair," she noted Hester's look. "It's not really getting into the ugly, it's just no hair and makeup. We don't do anything. It's no makeup… that's me!"

Lea has previously spoken about how she loves wearing more casual clothing.

But she is willing to wear uncomfortable frocks for a glamorous night out.

"[My style is] very relaxed and simple: jeans, flats and a leather jacket. Lately, I have mixed the Californian style with the dark side of New York. I would wear black every day if I could," she told Marie Claire Mexico. "For red carpets I love experimenting."

Lea stars in new show Scream Queens with other stylish actresses like Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis.

It seems Lea loves working out with her castmates, as last month Emma shared a picture of herself and Lea enjoying a session on Pilates reformer machines via Instagram.
