This is the year of Gwen Stefani. She's got a new boo thing, she's got a bunch of makeup collaborations, she's releasing new albums — she's basically got it all going on. If you watched her latest music video for "Make Me Like You" during the Grammys, you might be wondering how to copy Gwen Stefani's makeup from her latest video. And why not? It's adorable.
Gwen is, well, classically Gwen in this video. Her platinum blonde hair is in a curly, Marilyn Monroe-esque 'do and her retro red lips are in full effect, with a bold, black cat eye to match. She rocks a neutral smoky eye and fluffy false lashes to complete the look, with perfectly brushed brows, of course.
It's no surprise that Stefani looks impeccable in the video. She's launched a few collaborations with Urban Decay this year — an eyeshadow palette, a blush palette, and lipsticks. She clearly knows her stuff, but that's no surprise — her look is iconic and she's been killing it in the beauty game since the '90s. That some powerful personal branding, if you ask me!
If you want to recreate her look from the "Make Me Like You" video, here are a few go-to products to knock it out of the park.
