Gwyneth Paltrow's Makeup at Bent on Learning Benefit

How-To: Gwyneth's Groovy Gala Makeup

Last night, Gwyneth Paltrow joined fellow yoga lovin' stars such as Russell Simmons to raise money for Bent on Learning, a nonprofit that brings yoga and meditation to public schools in New York. It's a good cause and a great look for Gwyneth, who looked genuinely happy to be hosting the gala. Want to get the look? Don't get bent out of shape — I've got the exclusive details on getting the easy, fresh makeup here. For the Goop scoop,


Gwyneth wears all Estée Lauder products:

  • Skin: Start with clean, moisturized skin. Conceal any blemishes and use a lightweight foundation on skin. (Gwyneth wore Nutritious Vita-Mineral Liquid Makeup SPF 10 in Intensity 1.0.) Dust a true pink blush on the apples of your cheeks; for Gwyneth's exact shade, choose Signature Silky Powder Blush in Pink Kiss.
  • Eyes: Whenever your lip color is bold, stick with natural-looking eye makeup. I recommend wearing a neutral-toned, shimmery beige eye shadow on the lids. Line the top lashline with a soft eye pencil (Gwyneth wore Artist’s Eye Pencil in Softsmudge Black) and gently smudge it to keep the color from being too harsh. Finish with a few coats of mascara; Gwyneth was buzzing to TurboLash.
  • Lips: Gwyneth wore Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick in Spanish Red, a shade I own. (It is only a matter of time before fame, fortune, and a rock-star husband follow, right?) For ultraprecise application, use a lip brush to paint the edges of lips first, then fill in with lipstick.
