Gwen Stefani doesn’t trust anyone else to do her makeup for her.
The No Doubt singer–who is known for her trademark red lips–has been obsessed with makeup since she was young. She applies her own cosmetics on tour because she believes she is the only person who can get it right.
She said, “I started in seventh grade. We had home economics, and they’d bring someone in to show you how to put your makeup on. I can draw and paint. That’s my background. I learn from makeup people now, but in the past I had a real problem with makeup artists. I remember my first experience with a makeup artist was doing the first No Doubt album, the one that was shelved. Go back and look at how ugly I look. It is the worst makeup. From that time on, I’m thinking, I’m not going to let someone do my makeup, because they don’t know how to do it.”
While Gwen doesn’t trust anyone else to do her makeup, she admitted she loves being pampered by having her hair done and regrets not getting her own on-tour hairstylist sooner.
She told Elle magazine, “For the last couple tours I’ve had hair people, which is the luxury of my life. I’m like, ‘Why did I do it myself this whole time?’”
