It’s been revealed by designer Jeremy Scott that he used Gwen as his runway makeup look as inspiration during his latest show. Bindis, wild colors and more — we can see it! MAC makeup artist Kabuki revealed that the makeup look for the runway was indeed influenced by Gwen and No Doubt with a mix of technology. Jeremy Scott has always been a huge fan of Gwen and even was a guest at her Harajuku Mini launch party last November.
Style Sight — â€œThe makeup is inspired by Jeremyâ€™s collection. Itâ€™s rave revisited, like 21st century rave. Itâ€™s funny because I remember it from the first time around. It almost has to do with early computers as well, like the internetâ€¦ kind of like the current generation who has the party online. Some of the prints in the collection were very pixelated, like old 90s computer screens, so Iâ€™m bringing that into the makeup like a circuit board. The makeup is a combination of Gwen Stefani and No Doubt. During the 90s at New York clubs, people used to wear bindis in an ironic way. So weâ€™re combining that with the feeling of technology.
Weâ€™re doing a strong blue lip, for a shock value thing. It goes with the colorfulness of the collection. But the eyes and the skin are totally wearable. Thereâ€™s no top liner. Itâ€™s all done with mascara and subtle shades of light reflective powder. Thereâ€™s a little gold eyeshadow in the crease and a brown eyeliner pencil thatâ€™s bust up underneath the lash line. If you just looked at the eyes and the skin, itâ€™s wearable makeup for everyone. Maybe wear it with a bright pink lip.
I ordered the LED bindi on line, in keeping with the online experience theme. Me and my assistant made the other bindis by hand last night after finishing a show. There are two jewels on each one. Each girl is getting 19 bindis and theyâ€™re applied with lash glue.
For lips, weâ€™re using MAC Lip Mix. Weâ€™re mixing white lip mix with and cyan. Weâ€™re putting a powder eyeshadow over it which sets the color and gives it a richer, deeper finish. It has an almost satin finish. I like the way it looks under the lights. It looks a bit more dimensional.â€
