Chelsea Kane rose to the top of the leaderboard on Dancing With the Stars this week after a bewitching performance of the waltz to the Harry Potter theme song "Hedwig's Theme." She joked that she went the non-traditional route with not only partner Mark Ballas' choreography, but also her makeup! We caught up with the show's makeup artist Melanie Mills for the inside scoop on how she created Kane's look. "Because of the dance's dark, magical flair, the makeup needed to reflect some surreal aspects," Mills told us. "I applied crystals to the side of Kane's face by hand, then used green and purple eye shadows around the crystals to create a fairy-like feel." Mills blended the matte brown shadow with the shimmery green from the Anastasia Illumin8 palette in #2 ($40; sephora.com) to create an ivy-colored smokey eye, and finished Kane's look by filling in her lips with plum liner.
