If you, like me, subscribe to Gwyneth Paltrow’s newsletter Goop you probably saw yesterday’s post that featured her London makeup artist Emma Lovell and her step-by-step guide to doing your own makeup for day or night. (Don’t judge if you’re a hater, I’ve always been a fan of Gwyneth and will likely always be. Sliding Doors is one of my favorite movies of all time.)
Anyway, Lovell created a day and night look on a mom (Kate) from GP’s son’s school that she normally does on Gwyneth for appearances. I thought it was pretty helpful, so I’ve decided to share the most insightful (in my mind) tips from the post with you. Here it goes …
Tip 1: “Moisturize the entire neck, including the back; this keeps the front nice and taut!”
Tip 2: “When looking for the right foundation, try and match it to your neck rather than your face as you want your face color to blend seamlessly with the neck.”
Tip 3: When it comes to concealer, “… apply layers under the eyes, on the chin, in the t-zone and around the nose — in the winter, these are the places where people need the most coverage. As always, go slow, and don’t use it all up at once.” I personally never think about applying concealer to all of these areas, but I might just have to start.
Tip 4: With liquid liner, “Mix black and brown for a rich color.”
Tip 5: Because “Emma says there’s nothing worse than a dry-looking eye!” She “… dabs shimmery eye shadow on the center of Kate’s eyelid.”
Now fess up, are you a Gwyneth Paltrow fan?
