Gwyneth Paltrow knows firsthand if you stop using a skill, you may forget it!
“I’m not very good at putting on [my own] makeup,” Paltrow, 43, told Into the Gloss, “which is, I think, a result of having had my makeup done for 20-plus years.”
While cat-eyes and contouring might be lost on her, the Goop founder does admit that she knows the basics. “I can do the foundation, a little cheek and some mascara,” the mom of two explained.
Plus, the guesswork of finding her skin tone match is already done. “Luckily I have my own foundation color because I helped develop it,” the Juice Beauty creative director said of the brand’s Illuminating Primer and Serum Foundation.
The Oscar winner would also be lost without her 11-year-old daughter, Apple, who keeps her up to date on the best products. “I apply primer with my fingers like a moisturizer, and then with the foundation I use one of those little beauty blenders,” she revealed. “My daughter gave it to me — she’s very into beauty products.”
Paltrow also doesn’t put much time into her hair routine. “‘Style’ is probably a broad term for what I do to [my hair] after I wash,” she revealed. “I just air dry it and then put an oil in. There’s a Spanish oil I like called Orofluido, or I’ll use the Rodin by Recine Luxury Hair Oil. It’s very wavy, so if I have to go out, I’ll use Harry Josh’s flatiron on the underneath. But I leave the top as it is.”
