Gwen Stefani is an idol for me when it comes to both beauty and fashion. When you think of Gwen you think of her timeless approach to beauty, with her signature red lip, perfected brows, and peroxide blonde hair. Her look spans decades as she always finds a way to make it work alongside current trends.
Now she’s a mother, wife, successful business woman, as well as a singer, and she still maintains her timeless make-up look from her early No Doubt days. It’s hard to believe this Beauty Queen is 42, further proof she’s got one of the best beauty looks out there.
Speaking in a recent interview, Gwen spoke on her bold beauty look: “It was like I’d unlocked the key. I remember feeling like, ‘I have arrived. This is me. Finally.” (source)
What is it about her look that’s so powerful? Firstly, a red lip not only looks slick but keeps teeth looking white. Her platinum blonde hair is striking, youthful, and vibrant, and finally, her bold, face framing brows further contribute to her youthful appearance.
“I love a strong lip. I would see women like Marilyn Monroe and Gwen Stefani with red lips, they had such confidence. They were just hot and sexy and not afraid to be different. When I put red lipstick on, I want to be like them” – Rita Ora (source)
With my favourite fashionista Rita Ora admitting Gwen Steafani was a key inspiration behind her beauty look, it’s evident that Gwen’s reign as Beauty Queen is still going strong!
