Gwen Stefani Threw the Prettiest Friendsgiving — Dressed as a Cowgirl!
The Voice Coach had the event for her beauty line, GXVE — and talked about how makeup can improve people's confidence.
Naturally, she shared details from the event on Instagram. In a clip posted on November 6 to her account, we see Stefani leading the festivities dressed in a cowgirl-inspired outfit. "Its amazing to just see people who have been on the same kind of journey with beauty and their love for just whatever they want to create," she said.
She continued, "I think there's a lot of people out there who still wanna be creative and be beautiful and make a difference, and makeup makes you feel that way. You have a dream, and you really wanna be able to get there, but it is really about the journey. This is going to be a part of that journey today. Just being together, being grateful."

Gwen Stefani's history with makeup
Stefani is a whiz with makeup. She actually did her own impressive makeup for her Halloween costume this year, where she went as a character from Corpse Bride. Fans also may not know that before her No Doubt fame, Stefani was actually a mall makeup assistant.
Stefani revealed in an interview with Glamour that she prefers to apply her makeup herself before performances. "I never worked with a makeup artist my entire career, really, other than one here or one there..." she explained. “I found magic in the makeup. It’s not even about how people look; it’s how they feel. Once that makeup goes on, the confidence that comes with it is what stayed with me.”
She also talked about her personal connection with makeup in a September interview with People. "It's part of [me] putting the armor on and getting ready to do what I do and be that version of me," she said. "It's really therapeutic because it's very artful. I will listen to the gospel, [say] my prayers, and then I put my makeup on. It's just this whole process that goes into getting on the stage."
