Get Gwyneth Paltrow’s Look with this Easy Makeup How To!
Gwyneth Paltrow has been the ‘it’ girl for so many years and hasn’t skipped a beat. In fact, it seems she also hasn’t aged a day and as far as I know the fountain of youth is still missing in action. Her youthful beauty is all thanks to her beauty regimen and glam squad. That porcelain skin, those sparkling eyes, that pouty lip- you too can have it all like Gwyneth Paltrow. Read on and see how easy it is to do for yourself!
GWYNETH PALTROW MAKEUP: SKIN
Step 1: Gwyneth Paltrow's skin is always so milky smooth and flawless. A facial now and then probably doesn’t hurt, but in these times of financial hardship, sometimes it’s just not practical. So, treat yourself affordably at home. First things first, invest in an exfoliating mask like Bioelements Kerafole Mask. It’s good for all skin types and sweeps away impurities to leave skin refreshed and resurfaced. Leave mask on for 10 minutes and rinse with warm water. Apply 2 times a week (3 if your skin is oily.)
Expert beauty tip: A nice subtle tan always makes you look and feel young and pretty. And a gentle self tanner, like Two Faced Tanning Bed in a Tub, instead of the sun or a tanning booth will keep your skin eternally healthy and youthful!
GWYNETH PALTROW MAKEUP: FOUNDATION
Step 1: Immediately following your moisturizer, apply a sheer coat of a light to medium coverage liquid foundation, such as Joey New York Pure Pores Foundation, all over the face to even out the skin.
To achieve Gwyneth Paltrow's natural cheek, a neutral powder bronzer or sheer blush will do the trick. Apply a soft peachy blush or bronzer, like Nars Highlighting Bronzer/Blush Duo, to highlight the cheekbones and give a natural healthy flush.
GWYNETH PALTROW MAKEUP: EYES
Step 1: The eyes make this look and to get those sexy yet innocent Gwyneth eyes, you need a few main ingredients. As a base and highlight, apply a light golden beige-y color with a bit of shimmer, like Smashbox Eyeshadow in Champagne. On the top lid and also lightly underneath the eye, apply a sparkly copper color, like Smashbox Eyeshadow in Ambient, to give some flavor and brighten the eyes.
Step 2: Now its time to sex up the eyes using one of the greatest inventions ever known to woman. Black eyeliner applied on the inside of the eye gives this more natural look a whole lot of sex appeal. Using a soft kohl pencil like Benefits Kohl Liner in Black, gently trace around the entire inside edge of your eye. Don’t skimp on the liner either.
Step 4: Using a soft brow pencil, like Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil, in a color that is close to your hair color, lightly fill in your brow and create that ‘oh so important’ arch. The brows really shape the face and people will notice, I promise! Comb a clear gel through your brows to blend the color and set them for the night.
GWYNETH PALTROW MAKEUP: LIPS
Lastly, apply a sheer creamy pink lip gloss, like Fusion Beauty Lip Plump Color Shine in Baby, to make your lips look perfectly kissable like Gwyneth's. Beware this baby however; this shiny little one is also a lip plumper. You may feel a slight tingling sensation (Don’t worry, that just means its working!)
