We want to know ALL her secrets
Can we please just take a moment to appreciate Gwen Stefani’s ‘no makeup’ selfie? While we’re used to seeing the singer sporting a signature red lip and bold eyeliner, her recent selfie confirms just how stunning she is – with or without makeup.
And may we remind you that Gwen is 48 years old. Seriously, we want what she’s using.
She recently took to Instagram to share the shot of herself seemingly sans makeup, showing off her clear and uber glowing skin. Also ditching her trademark Hollywood waves, her platinum locks were worn tied up in a loose, messy bun.
The singer, who is currently holidaying in Oklahoma with boyfriend Blake Shelton, captioned the shot, “@blakeshelton thank u for sharing your world gx”
She later shared another snap of herself relaxing on a boat, hair blowing in the wind, looking completely chilled and absolutely nailing that natural look (at most we can spy a bit of eyeliner and mascara), allowing her flawless skin to once again take centre stage.
While we’re desperate to know what skin care products she uses, it’s also giving us all the inspiration to strip back our makeup look and let our skin breathe.
It’s no secret the ‘no makeup’ makeup look has been absolutely OWNING the Internet as of late, with Gwen joining the ranks of stars who have opted for more natural looks. Fellow popstar Ariana Grande recently sent the Internet into frenzy when she posed in natural-looking makeup for the June cover of British Vogue. Kylie Jenner also posted a stunning au naturel beauty look while on holiday, showing off her clear skin and to-die-for freckles.
If you want to embrace that ‘I woke up like this’ radiance, take a leaf out of Gwen’s book and opt for just a few products that enhance your natural beauty – rather than detract from it. Try a pore-minimising primer to smooth your base, followed by a BB cream for a hint of colour, and a slick of natural-looking mascara to ever-so-slightly define your eyes.
