A strong makeup look is something Gwen Stefani is known for, so it comes as no surprise to see models sporting spunky retro makeup looks at the L.A.M.B. runway show. Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer created a look that channeled the iconic "60s rock-n-roll chick" that inspired the collection, and put a "modern yet girlish spin on retro" for the show's makeup look.

1. Apply Maybelline New York Fit Me! Foundation, $7.99, with your fingers to create a fresh clean canvas, and use a deeper shade of Maybelline New York Fit Me! Pressed Powder, $7.99, to contour your cheekbones.

Fashion Week How-To: Organic Updos at the Katie Gallagher Show

Celebrity hair stylist Cesar Ramirez proves that earthy-looking hair doesn't have to be wild or dirty at Katie Gallagher's Fall 2012 show at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.

The side-swept hair is woven to evoke tree branches and roots, and the front is twisted to look like patterns you'd find everywhere in a forest. Here's how to get the same look for your next big night out:
