Where Gwen Stefani’s Signature Red Lipstick Came From

It is likely most of you fought hard against grandma’s style advices as you grew up. Gwen Stefani on the other hand didn’t. In fact, her grandmother is where Gwen Stefani’s signature red lipstick came from.

In a recent interview for Harper’s Bazaar, Gwen Stefani talked about being a mom, working out and obviously her fashion style. The crimson red lipstick she’s been wearing for so long has become a signature that many fashionistas today love to copy. Long story short, it was her grandmother that gave her the first tube of crimson red lip color.

“I remember sitting in my ghetto, beat-up Honda Prelude, and putting on that lipstick in the rear-view mirror and being like, ‘Uh-huh, I like that. That’s the sh** right there” the singer told Harper’s Bazaar. “I never stopped after that” added Gwen Stefani.

Then she revealed to Harper’s Bazaar another secret about the famous Gwen Stefani signature look. Gwen Stefani recalled her hair turned platinum blonde when she was 25. It took her eight hours in a salon in Long Beach to dye her hair platinum blonde. According to Gwen Stefani it was love at first sight.

“It was like I’d unlocked the key. I remember feeling like, ‘I have arrived. This is me. Finally” said Gwen Stefani of her signature look.

The rock star also talked about what she does to keep such a great figure. Gwen Stefani delivered the ultimate down-to-earth answer after explaining she hates talking about her body all the time. “There is no secret. You just have to eat healthy, work out and torture yourself!” said Gwen Stefani.

But Gwen Stefani talked with Harper’s Bazaar about her private life too. Of being a mom, Gwen Stefani confessed “it’s superfun” but “hard too”. And she’s one busy mother. No Doubt, her 6-year-old son, her working out, fashion line and even marriage keep her busy enough. “Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I’ve ever done – by far” she added.

Just like many other celebrities, Gwen Stefani’s private life isn’t so private. Oftentimes the media rumored her marriage to Gavin Rossdale to be over. But Gwen Stefani says “none of that stuff matters…It’s not part of my reality, so it’s okay”.
