For one, she founded a wellness lifestyle brand, including her own skin-care line (NBD). Oh, and she always looks absolutely stunning on the red carpet. The Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow seems to know a thing or two about beauty. So here are five beauty tips we've picked up over the years from the Goop founder herself.

1. Adopt the Mantra “Less Is More”

GP’s go-to au naturel look isn’t as simple as it seems. Sure, she loves a pared-down lip, simple black eyeliner and a fresh face, but she also exfoliates every day and makes sure her skin is flawless from the inside out. Have you heard of her supplement line and clean-eating cookbooks?

2. Hold Onto Your Shine

Instead of trying to make herself matte, Paltrow often prefers a soft, illuminated glow that leaves her face looking dewy, not oily. This youthful look can be achieved by adding a few drops of facial oil to your foundation before applying.

3. Pair Bold Makeup with Pin-Straight Hair

It’s all about balance, people. A bright red lip and black eyeliner deserve the spotlight, so let them stand out against a simple middle part and stick-straight locks.

4. Brush Shadow Below the Eyes for the Ultimate Smoky Look

Smoky eyes aren’t necessarily anything new, but Paltrow’s approach just might take yours up a notch. Just sweep a bit of charcoal shadow on your upper lid, then—this is the trick—underneath your bottom lashes. It’s a soft yet dramatic way to do a nighttime look you’ll never tire of.

5. Use Cheek Tint for a Natural Flush

Paltrow’s secret weapon? A rose-colored tinted cheek balm from Tata Harper, according to an interview with Into the Gloss. Just dab on bit on cheeks and lips for a healthy sheen that won’t turn cakey or papery by the end of the night.
