Music Video Inspired Tutorial: Gwen Stefani's "Early Winter"
Posted Oct 04 2009 11:14pm
A subscriber of my You Tube channel requested me to do a classic Gwen Stefani look and though I love the winged liner, I lack the courage to wear a bold red lip. I came across Gwen's "Early Winter" video and spotted a look that I know for sure I'll be able to pull off. She was wearing a dark winged out smokey eyes with frosty pink lips. So, while I figure out a way how to make the red lip work on me, here's a Gwen-inspired makeup tutorial for ya.

I couldn't quite get the colors right because if you watch the video, the colors seem to differ from different angles. For instance, in this picture, the makeup looks black but in the up-close, her makeup is actually metallic gray and from another angle, it looked like she had some pinks in there too. After my 3rd attempt, I decided to just create the effect rather than pay so much attention to the colors.
