If Gwen Stefani could have vain be her middle name, she thinks it would be a perfect fit.    She opened up to "Elle Magazine" about being vain and why she refuses to use a makeup artist. 

Gwen admits she hated being pregant while on tour because she was getting fat and feeling gross.   She found that hard because she loves the visual and describes herself as very vain.  Gwen tells the magazine she felt disgusting and  certain songs made her want to puke.    She doesn't use a makeup artist because she had bad experiences with them over the years and doesn't trust anyone else to do her makeup the right way.  She credits majoring in art back in college with helping learn  how to become good at applying makeup.  Did you think she was vain before you read this?  Hey, at least she admits it.
