Get the Gwen Stefani look!

So, this week, I have been inspired by the one-and-only Gwen Stefani. She is the ultimate style icon for anyone that loves a bit of a rocky edge and make up-wise she has got the red-lips look down to a T. However, more recently, she has been mixing up her make up a bit and has been giving us plenty of 60s vibes. She also has a new eye shadow palette in collaboration with Urban Decay coming out soon, which is to die for! I loved this one look she recently wore on ‘The Voice’ so much, it inspired me to have a go myself!

The double-ended flick here is so representative of the 60s look, so I had a go, but added a sparkly spin to it, ready for the upcoming party season. 




To get the look, I used the Sleek Ultra mattes V2 palette on my eyes with ‘flesh’ on the lid and ‘pa-per bag’ through the crease. I then applied the bottom line first with Collection ' Fast stroke' liquid liner in black and used this as a guide for the top liner. You could use a gel liner for a softer look, but for an authentic 60s look, that gives you the definition, I would suggest the liquid liner. To give a touch of glam, and to emphasise the gap between the liner, I then added Urban Decay 'Heavy Metal' glitter eyeliner in Glam rock in between the two lines and a touch to the inner corner of the eye. Once this was done, I added Rimmel scandal eyes kohl liner in ‘nude’ to the water line. If you wanted to give a full-on 60s look, you could always apply a white liner. Lastly, I applied some mascara and false lashes for extra dramatic effect. 

Personally, I can’t believe I have never tried this look before. It was easy, yet really makes a statement. I’ll definitely be wearing this look out and about. What do you think? Are you a fan of 60s make up? I would love to hear your comments.

  3. Thank you! And it's really easy to do! If you don't like the 60's too much just make the flick a little smaller :o)
