Makeup is one of Stefani’s main passions in life, making this new endeavor all the more exciting for her. Speaking in a statement, Stefani said she looks forward to sharing her passion for makeup through her role as Revlon’s new global brand ambassador.

Ever since I was a young girl, I have used makeup as a form of self-expression,” she said. “I am passionate about makeup and how it can showcase your individuality and creativity. Partnering with an iconic beauty brand such as Revlon felt like a natural fit.

Long before she became the pop superstar that she is today, Stefani worked at a makeup counter in the mall. In an interview with WWD, Stefani said she was able to get a job with the cosmetic line Borghese, despite having no formal training in makeup.

I was a makeup artist when I was in my early twenties at the mall, they never trained me,” Stefani said. “I’d be like, ‘Let me put some makeup on you, let me show you what you could look like.’ I just remember making people feel so much joy and so inspired and so full of confidence, and that’s what makeup can do.

Now as Revlon’s global brand ambassador, Stefani has certainly come a long way since her makeup artist days. She’s now looked up to as a beauty icon, with her red lips being her trademark look. Stefani shows off her signature red lip in some behind-the-scenes footage for a shoot with Revlon, which you can watch below.

Congratulations to Stefani on this latest step in her career! We’re sure 2017 has even more exciting things in store for her!
