Gwen Stefani's Makeup - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Makeup Studio

Gwen Stefani is a makeup artist's dream. Besides the fact that she’s gorgeous, she is also absolutely fearless when it comes to experimenting with new looks. From airbrushed eyeshadow to ruby red lips, she wears makeup like no one else. If you want to take your look for a walk on the wild side and get Gwen's sexy, retro style, follow these steps from Tony & Tina's international makeup artist Eddie Funkhouser.

STEP 1 Before applying makeup, use a hydrating moisturizer and eye cream. With your fingertips, dot foundation on your forehead, chin, the bridge of your nose and the apples of your cheeks. On the forehead and cheeks, blend in an outward motion; on the chin, blend in a downward stroke. Work with small amounts of foundation at a time (it’s better to start light and build slowly to get the desired finish).

STEP 2 Apply concealer to the eyelids and under the eyes using a concealer brush. The motto here is "less is more." (Too much concealer can result in creasing.) The concealer should also be used to cover blemishes and as a base coat for the lips.

STEP 3 For a dramatic brow, use a brow brush to apply a rich brown shadow to the eyebrow in short strokes. Make sure the color is well blended to create a natural shadow effect.

STEP 4 Working with an eye blender brush, apply sheer iridescent shadow to the brow bone only. Apply a light bone shadow to the rest of the lid. In the crease, apply a warm taupe and blend well with your brush. You want the crease color to be soft and natural.

STEP 5 To line the eyes, wet a pointed liner brush and dip it into black eyeshadow to create a modern version of liquid liner. Start a narrow line at the top inner corner of the eye and gradually thicken, tapering off at about 1/8 inch beyond the outer corner of the eye. Use a black eyeliner pencil to line the inside of the upper lash line and the very inner corner of the bottom. Finish by curling the lashes and applying two coats of black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

STEP 6 Contour your cheekbones using a light pink cheek gel. Dab a small amount on the back of one hand. Pick up a small amount with your fingertips and lightly dab and pat the color onto the face, starting just below the cheekbones and working toward the hairline.

STEP 7 Outline the lips using a lip liner. Make sure to seal in the outer corners of the mouth with the pencil. This gives the lips extra definition and depth. Use a lip brush to blend the liner up and into the lip to erase any signs of a definite line. Apply a rich red lipstick to the lips with the lip brush, starting from the corners and working toward the center. As a final touch, dab a small amount of lipgloss onto the back of your hand. Pick up a small amount with your lip brush and lightly dab it over the color. Be careful not to smudge or disturb the color you just applied.

STEP 8 For subtle, sexy shimmer, finish with a dusting of iridescent loose powder on your forehead, cheeks, shoulders and chest.
