GET GWEN'S LOOK: VOICE FINALE
Rob & Mariel – Wardrobe Stylists
Gwen Stefani and Marchesa are the perfect match. The black floral embroidered Marchesa dress with long layered fringe gave fashion fans everything they expect from a Gwen look; fun, edgy fashion with a girly sexy twist. Plus, who doesn't love an outfit with movement! This look checked all of the fashion boxes. Paired with a metallic glitter eye, 60s hairstyle with velvet bow, and a suede thigh high boot took this look to the next level. She looked like a dream.

70’s chic Victorian Goth.
Sexy demure set using medium wave/curl. Style, brush and arrange top. Place and barrette into position. Mist with spray to fix.
Tip: Start with fresh washed and conditioned hair. For the hairstyle I used, leave in conditioner, detangler, volumizer and leave in styling cream.
Gregory Arlt – Makeup Artist
We are always Gwen-spired by the fabulous 60’s. As we all know there are so very many looks that make up that era, but one of our favorites is the combo platter of Catherine Deneuve in “Belle Du Jour” and upscale 60’s Palm Springs society women who painstakingly applied coats and coats of mascara and false lashes, but made it look effortless and chic. Eye makeup was almost architecture using precise, confident lines to create exaggerated shapes on the eyes which both elongated and enlarged the eye area beautifully.
Gwen’s eyes are a makeup artist’s dream! There is a LOT of ‘real estate’ to play with, with perfectly symmetrical eyes and large lids that both invite and allow for lots of play time with makeup.
I began by applying a luminous foundation to her face, mixing in a liquid highlighter which brightened the foundation up, making her look lit from within. I used a minimal amount of powder strategically; in the T-Zone and sides of the nose to prevent shine, and leaving the outer part of her face luminous and glowing. I mixed a baby pink blush with a slightly coral shimmer blush to create a pop of color and light on the face, applying it just to the apples of the cheeks which can create a more youthful look to the face.
Her eyes were our playground! I swept a very pale yellow based shimmer shadow all over her eyes, emphasizing more under her brow bone to highlight. For her brows I applied a taupe/blonde pencil to fill them in then set it with a soft, ash blonde shadow which I then elongated to make her brows look not only more chic, but also to give room to the liner I was going to use. I applied a gold shadow all over her lids and then mixed a blend of gold, bronze, and the smallest amount of pink glitter all over the lids. I lined her eyes with a black liquid liner on top, then used a deep, blackened plum matte shadow on the lower lashes which I elongated to follow the top liner. A pale white pencil was then used on her inner eyes which I brought out to the outer corners of her eyes and set with a matte, cream colored shadow so you could really see the separation of the upper and lower liners. Generous coats of mascara followed by lash inserts created a full, lush look to her lashes.
Lastly, I used a soft beige pencil to line her lips followed by a nude beige lipstick and a shimmery pale icy gloss over it. Perfect 60’s chic!
