Here's Proof That Gwyneth Paltrow Looks Flawless Without Makeup

We'll take this as evidence that Goop skincare works.

By Jenny Berg

Alicia Keys isn't the only one going makeup-free these days. To celebrate her 44th birthday , Gwyneth Paltrow posted a selfie showing her bare, clean skin bathed in natural light.

In a patterned, blue-and-white top—and wearing her hair in tumbling curls—the Goop founder posted the caption: "#nomakeup for my 44th birthday, embracing my past and future." It's hardly surprising that GP has a flawless complexion: she's a famous proponent of healthy living, and we have a feeling she has a sizable stash of Goop by Juice Beauty luminous melting cleanser.

Gwyneth added the hash tag #goopgoesmakeupfree to encourage her fans to get clean with her, and later issued a statement about her decision to post the pic. "One of the most interesting things about being a woman is that around the time you turn 40, you get what I like to call a software upgrade," she shared. "Along with it comes some amazing new features, the roadmap to true self-acceptance, real insight into you are, and kind of not giving a s#*t about the things that are unimportant. You find yourself investing in relationships that give as much as they get, you start to get a sense of the true size of your worth (immeasurable), you start to like yourself for who you really are (warts and all). The future suddenly has scarcity to it, and the past is all over your face. I have been very inspired by the #nomakeup movement as the message behind it says, here I am, this is me. This is what I look like, this is where I am in time, and I embrace it."
