If there was ever a celebrity makeup bag we would happily raid, it’s Gwen Stefani’s.

The woman always looks flawless is one of the few people who can pull off the tough combo of a dramatic lip and eye!

We love the super-flawless movie-star vibe her makeup has so we decided to show you how to recreate her look while also sharing some of Gwen’s favourite products along the way!

P.s. If your recreate her look this weekend using SOSU products, make sure you tag us in the pictures!

Lips 2016-10-19_1757

Gwen is known for her signature matte cherry red lip look and her favourites include MAC’s Ruby Woo, and Russian Red.

To make her red lipstick last for as long as possible, Gwen says she first applies a matte, dry base before topping it with a creamy colour.

To recreate this look, some red shades that are slightly less pricey and well worth checking out would include these fab shades from NYX here and here.

Eyes

When it comes to eye makeup Gwen loves a smokey 60’s eye – preferring to wear lots of liner and lashes rather than eyeshadow per se. That said, she is also partial to a striking colourful eye.

She especially loves electric blue and is known to love the MAC liner Technoakohl Liner in the shade Smooth Blue.

Gwen also loves the MAC eyeshadow shade Freshwater Blue. You can get similar here from NYX or here from Urban Decay.

A strong black liner is an important part of Gwen’s makeup bag as she is a big fan of a dramatic winged eyeliner.

If you want a liner that has a good depth of colour, is long lasting and easy to apply, then we would recommend the Rimmel Exaggerate waterproof eyeliner.

If you prefer a gel liner like Gwen, then we would recommend this eyeliner pot and this eyeliner brush.

One item Gwen always wears are fluffy lashes. These are as much a part of her signature look as the red lips.

Sue wearing ‘Kim’

To get flirty Gwen-esque eyes, we would recommend SOSU lashes in the Kim’s or Sue, or you can use two layers of the Sophia’s.

When it comes to brows, Gwen’s makeup artist has a great trick for setting them in place!

Her applies hairspray to a clean mascara wand and then runs the wand through the eyebrow! Genius!

Gwen loves a flawless full coverage and regularly opts for either MAC Pro Longwear, Studio Fix or Urban Decay’s All Nighter Foundation.

To recreate her look, you could try Maybelline’s Fit Me Liquid Foundation, the Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation, or the concealer in the SOSU Complete Contour Palette, which lots of ladies love using as a full coverage foundation!

Hair:

Lately Gwen has been opting for a super-slick ponytail.

To recreate this sleek look, you can use the Paul Mitchell Smoothing Super Skinny Serum, the  Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil, or the International Hair Shine Serum.

Sometimes Gwen goes for retro curls. To recreate those kind of curls, you can try something like the Babyliss Secret Curler, these heated rollers, or this GHD Creative Curling Wand.

To maximise the curl, don’t forget to pin the curl up once you have relased it from the tongs/curlers.

For an extra strong curl, try this product from Redken or this product from Paul Mitchell. Both are bestselling products and famous the world over for their results.

There you have it guys, a recreation of Gwen Stefani’s signature look!
