Achieve a head-to-toe glow with these behind-the-scenes beauty secrets from the celebrity stylist and makeup artist responsible for Gwyneth Paltrow's latest look:
Skin: Supplements & Self-Tanner
To keep her skin looking luminous (and waist trim) for red-carpet events, the "Country Strong" star has been known to use GliSODin Skin Nutrients Advanced Daily and Detoxification formulas. In addition, makeup artist Leslie Lopez applied St. Tropez Wash Off Body Mousse on her arms and legs, as well as St. Tropez Gold Skin Illuminator on her cheek bones, chest and shoulders, to further enhance Gwyneth's radiance.
Makeup: Kelly with a Twist
Lopez explains: "Gwyneth is very regal looking, she reminds me of Grace Kelly. Her dress was a gorgeous gold Calvin Klein gown. I wanted her to look classic and beautiful, and at the same time approachable.
To begin, I prepped her skin with CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Cream, then used CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup in Beige as a base, and applied CHANEL Long-Lasting Concealer in Beige Ivoire.
On her eyes, I used CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Delta. I applied the shadow all over the lid, and then used CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Trace in the crease. I then mixed the brown and taupe shades in CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes around the eyelid. I lined the eyes with CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Brun, and applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Masarca in Noir, concentrating on the outer corners to make the eyes pop.
To give a warmth to her skin, I used Soleil Tan de CHANEL in Terre Ambre. On the apples of her cheeks, I used CHANEL Tweed Blush Duo in Tweed Fuchsia.
For her lips I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine in Canotier (available in April), topped with CHANEL Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Insouciance.”
The Hair: Classic Gwyn
Stylist Harry Josh explains: “Gwyneth was my inspiration. She never tries to impress and her sophistication comes from within – a hairstyle shouldn't overshadow that. She's always had impeccably chic personal style and I wanted her hair to reflect that on the red carpet.
"To best achieve this, I started by having her use the new John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight (an at-home alternative to salon straightening treatments), to ensure super smooth, shiny hair that would stay straight all night long.
Next, I began by blowing out Gwyneth's hair with a Mason Pearson brush, carefully straightening each section at a time. I then went over each piece with a comb and a flat iron, ensuring every hair stayed sleek.
To finish, I gave her a center part and combed down all stray hairs and flyaways with the new John Frieda Full Repair Flyaway Tamer."
