Gwen Stefani's makeup looks


I would like to first start off by saying that I am a HUGE fan of Gwen Stefani. I have always loved her music, her bold style, and her makeup looks. Gwen Stefani is so original and creative, she definitly stands out from other celebrities to me. That's what I love most about her, she isn't afraid to be herself!

So these are some of my favourite Gwen Stefani looks!

To me, this is a classic Gwen Stefani look. She has the bold red lip, with just the perfect amount of shine, not too shimmery, not too matte. She has black eyeliner along her top lashline and just a touch of black eyeliner on the bottom lashline. Then there is a shimmery white eyeshadow around her tear ducts. Her eyebrows look perfectly shaped and filled in with a light brown to go along with her white blonde hair. She doesn't wear to much colour on her cheeks. But I love her porcelain skin, it really works for her look. She has a bit of a rosy pink colour on her cheeks. This is a great evening look in my opinion, and it is an easy look to do. It's a five minute look that looks like you spent a lot of time doing.

This makeup look is almost the same as the one above (like I said "signature Gwen Stefani look"). The only thing that is really different in this look is she has more eyeliner on her bottom lash line than in the other picture. Her cheeks also look a bit more bronzy here. What I really liked about this look was her hair and her statement necklace. I love how she can pull anything off. Her hair is so unique and quorky but it really does work. If it was any other celebrity with their hair like this I would be like "What the heck were they thinking!" But for Gwen I make an exception. Like how do you get a bun to sit that perfectly on the top of your head?

I think this is a gorgeous look on Gwen. It's different than what she would usually do with her makeup, but it's nice to see her switch it up every once in a while. She has heavy eyeliner on her bottom lashline as well as her top lashline. The thing that really sticks out to me in this picture is her nude lips, since she is known for her red lip. She has a bit of gloss on her lips and maybe a hint of lip liner. Her cheek bone is very defined in this picture which looks very flattering. Her hair has been teased and kind of combed over a bit then flowers added to it makes it look so pretty.

This look is so different from her usual look because first of all, she has no red lip, and second of all, she doesn't always wear her eyeliner that thick. I think she looks more toned down here than she normally looks, which is kind of nice for a change. She has very thick black eyeliner on her top lashline then white eyeliner along the bottom lashline and of course mascara. Then she has a pale pink lip with a touch of gloss to finish the look. Again looks beautiful but doesn't take much time.

This is a very flattering look on Gwen and would also be flattering on anyone really. She has lovely dewy skin here and a nice bronzy, pink glow. The lip colour is very different from what we have seen before which is either red lip or pale lip. This is a more pinky natural colour. She has the eyeliner along her tp lashline again and a touch along the bottom but not too much. She has long eyelashes and almost no eyeshadow. Maybe a pale peach or white, it's kind of hard to tell. She looks so glowy in this picture, its stunning.

Over all, when looking through pictures of Gwen, I noticed she doesn't really play too much with coloured eyeshadows. I might like to see more colour on her eyes in the future but still, anything she does, she always pulls it off really well.

Thanks for reading!
