In addition to being a legendary singer and fashion icon, Gwen Stefani is a full-fledged beauty idol for thousands. With her platinum blonde hair, perfect skin and signature red lips, it’s no wonder her beauty style is so coveted. That’s why it comes as no surprise that her biggest beauty deal to date (she’s also done nail polish collections with OPI) is cause for so much excitement. Gwen has teamed up with Urban Decay for an absolutely stunning and glam limited edition eyeshadow palette – and, yes, it’s B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Keep scrolling for some of our favorite looks and tutorials using the palette.
The UD x Gwen palette is comprised of fifteen shades in a range of matte, pearl and shimmer finishes. The set includes both classic and unique takes on neutrals shades, in addition to a few jewel tones for some pops of color. @SonjdraDeluxe used the shades Zone, Pop, Punk, Blackout and 1987 for this bold smoky eye. The illusion of a wing makes this smoky unforgettable.
The picture doesn’t do it justice, but Lauren Curtis used the incredible, vivid electric blue shade (Danger) over her lid for this smoky look. She used light pink in the inner corners and transitional neutrals in the crease to complete this grungy, bold look.
@ILuvSaraHii shows how versatile this palette can be with this glam and classically Gwen look – those red lips are killer. She finished off her neutral eye with a bold and daring wing. It’s a modern take on the Old Hollywood look. The options with this palette are endless. Use the neutrals during the day, and go bolder at night with the shimmers and jewel tones.
Ellarie paired her neutral UD x Gwen eye with bold brows and berry lips. She used Dose of Colors’ Berry Me for her lips. This look is perfect for the holiday season. The neutral eye look will flatter everyone and any lip color.
Jordan Bone paired her deep and dark smoky eye with Gerard Cosmetics’ Mystic Moon. The grayish-mauve lipstick is the perfect fall lip color. Both eyes and lips are bold takes on neutral shades. This entire look is so stunning!
Urban Decay asked some of their favorite bloggers, like Alyssa of ForeverFlawlyss, to create looks using the UD x Gwen Palette. She used the reddish-brown Punk all over her lids, and added some sparkle in the inner corners with Pop!
