Fall/Winter 2010 Fashion Week
started today, and Daily Makeover kicked it off backstage at
L.A.M.B. with designer Gwen Stefani. She gave us an exclusive look into
what inspires her, how she creates that fab red lip (girlfriend does her own
makeup!) and what beauty look her husband can't get enough of.
What inspired the beauty look for
the L.A.M.B. show?
The collection is based on a
vintage, naughty, Hollywood starlet girl, a little bit of a modern, futuristic
girl and a little bit of a soldier girl. I found these Ellen von Unwerth
pictures with black makeup and the dark lips [that I loved] so we're going to do the
hair very set, vintage and glamorous with a lot of bangs.
The thing that I've learned is that
you have an inspiration, you have a picture, an idea and it just evolves into
what it's going to be. You don't consider when you come up with three ideas for
a theme that you're going to have a blizzard, a baby with an ear infection and
the Chinese new year, but at the end of the day the creative process of having
that pressure and that drama means you come up with things you normally
wouldn't. I can't wait to see it all together. For me, it's all about that part
with the music and seeing the girls.
Red lips are a big beauty trend we're seeing for Fall 2010. The red
lipstick look is already one of your trademarks!
I just love when things that I love
come back into style. I don't have one specific red lipstick that I use. MAC's
sponsoring the show today, so [lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury] put a
mixture of four different reds on me. I know she definitely used Russian Red. I
tend to go more for the blue-reds than the orange-reds–I think they look
better on me.
