This Might Be Why Gwyneth Paltrow Posted A Makeup-Free Selfie On Her 44th Birthday

by Stephanie Montes

Gwyneth Paltrow just posted a makeup-free selfie to celebrate her 44th birthday and all we can say is, bravo. The mother of two showed off her glowing skin and air-dried waves with the caption, “#nomakeup for my 44th birthday, embracing my past and future.” So why does Gwyneth prefer to go au naturel (besides the fact that she’s one of the lucky ones who can get by without even a smidge of concealer)? It might be because she doesn’t actually know how to do her own makeup! When we sat down with her last month to talk about Juice Beauty, she told us, “In my real life, I don’t wear a full face of makeup every day—I’m sort of a tomboy like that. Sometimes I wear nothing except lip gloss. I’ve sat in a makeup chair my whole life, so I never really learned how to do my own makeup. When I’m in the chair, I’m reading the newspaper or working so I’ve never really taken the time to learn properly, but I really should.” Well, it’s a good thing you don’t need it, Gwyneth!
