Choosing to save her beauty look for the big stage, Gwen Stefani performed at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards with an ethereal beauty look. Wearing her white blonde hair in loose waves, Gwen completed the look with glowing skin and a pale glossy lip.
Gwen Stefani, 46, was almost unrecognizable without her bright red lipstick at the Billboard Music Awards on May 22. Skipping the pink carpet, Gwen debuted her BBMAs beauty look in Las Vegas on stage, alongside boyfriend, Blake Shelton, 39.
Wearing a floor-length shimmering silver gown with long sleeves and panels of nude see-through fabric, Gwen ditched her signature red lip and crisp cat eye makeup for something much softer. For her hair, Gwen traded in the dip dye look she’s been sporting on and off lately for long, loose curls.
Gwen looked completely stunning with her softer makeup look. Not only did she go for a glossy nude lip instead of her usual cherry red lipstick, but Gwen also opted for lots of shimmering highlighter along her cheekbones, brow bones and down the bridge of her nose, which gave her skin an illuminated, dewy effect. Keeping her eye makeup light as well, Gwen used soft light brown shadows on her eyes, skipping the black eyeliner and false lashes loaded up with mascara for a minimal look.
To complete the look, Gwen’s platinum blonde hair was parted to the side and styled into loose curls. To up the glam factor, Gwen’s waves were super smooth with lots of shine.
It wasn’t just her beauty look that fans were excited to see. Gwen and Blake had been teasing their duet, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” for some time. Having debuted the song earlier this month on The Voice, Gwen gave us all a sneak peek of the performance on her Snapchat, plus a behind-the-scenes look at all of the prep work that goes into such a big show.
