InStyle: Beauty Talk (November 2009)


Beauty talk
Gwen Stefani

You’ve done everything from the O.C. mall girl to Old Hollywood glam. What’s your next look going to be?
Right now I’m feeling fuchsia lips.

Totally ’80s. I like it! Does that mean we’ve seen the last of the red lipstick?
Not a chance. But I love to layer tons of different shades to create new colors.

What’s your technique for getting it to last?
I start with a matte lipstick that’s really dry, then I put a more creamy, moist lipstick on top. And my trick for not getting it on my teeth? Be really careful!

Have you always been a product junkie?
I can’t remember a time I wasn’t interested in makeup. When I was little, we would come home from school and dive right into my best friend’s mom’s Mary Kay collection.

How many lipsticks would you say you own?
Too many to count!

Now tell us about your platinum blond. How do you maintain it?
[Laughs] That’s a secret never to be revealed!
