Backstage beauty: L.A.M.B. spring 2011

Backstage at L.A.M.B., for Spring 2011 the look was classic Gwen Stefani – rasta meets punk rock. Models were given deep red lips, a copper and gold cleopatra eye, and Harajuku braided dos with miles of extensions added in.

NYFWSS11 968.jpgMakeup: Charlotte Willer for Maybelline used Eye Shadow Quad in Give Me Gold #5 to highlight the browbones, inner corners and the tops of the cheekbones, then brought the copper shade from the inside of the eye through the crease blending it out into a cat’s eye. Gold was added to the lid, and the bottom or the eye was rimmed with black kohl for a Cleopatra look.  Willer coated lashes with The Falsies Mascara, and contoured cheeks with bronzer, before caoting lips with Deep Red Lipstick #645.

Hair: Gwen’s personal stylist Danilo created rasta-punk hair, heavily inspired by Gwen’s beloved harajuku girls. He started by clipping extensions near the front of the face, divided them into three sections, and made a long braid. The rest of the
hair was pulled back into an asymmetrical ponytail, pulled halfway through the elastic into a messy bun. The hair was finished by either adding contrasting color hair
pieces to the braided area, or randomly pinning strands back or to the

Nails: CND’s Angie Wingle blended Speedy, Inkwell, Studio White and Anchor together to create a dusty dark blue hue.
