Makeup: 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 sides.
Nails: CND’s Angie Wingle blended Speedy, Inkwell, Studio White and Anchor together to create a dusty dark blue hue.
The brand’s new amazonian clay-infused brow mousse is a DREAM and comes in Taupe, Medium Brown, or Rich Brown. The waterproof formula glides on, blends softly for a natural look, and is nearly undetectable.
To use, brush brow hair in the direction of growth with a brow brush, then begin filling in sparse areas with an angled brush swiped in emphasEYES brow mousse. Brush brows back into place to blend and set.

The dense, yet airy body chiffon warmed up with our own body heat, melting deliciously into the consistency of a massage oil - though it leaves no greasy, slick-like residue. We also scooped up a finger tip full and used it as a rich body butter. Though, we must say, that our favorite application was as a thin, tasty and very moisturizing lip balm.
