Singer Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani preferred make-up to toys as a child.The 'Rich Girl' singer used to raid her friends' mother's make-up boxes at every opportunity and loved experimenting with cosmetics.Gwen told TV Hits magazine: "I was always the girl who, after school every day, would say, 'Ask your mom if we can play with her make-up! And then we'd do that for about four hours!"I would burn everybody with the curling iron, I'd do make-overs on everyone."I was a make-up artist in a mall when I was 17 so it's always something I've been into."Mother-of-one Gwen insists she rarely goes out without make-up and doesn't care what people think about her obsession.The 37-year-old star - who is married to British rocker Gavin Rossdale - said: "Everyone has criticised me for wearing too much make-up but I've also made a career out of it!"My make-up must have is my lipstick. It's what my husband likes me in and I definitely try to please him!"
