People have a strong reaction to Gwyneth Paltrow and especially Goop. I for one love her and the fabulous — if not all that accessible — products and tips she shills on goop.com. However, lovers and haters should be in full agreement when they see the exclusive colors Butter London created for Goop, $36. They are fabulous. A collection of three holiday-perfect nail shades that covers the spectrum for all you would want in a winter nail polish: Hampstead Heath, a rich deep green and gold sparkle; Abso-bloody-lutley, a cherry opaque red; and Bread & Butter Pudding, a sheer ivory cream. I’m personally going for the cream for Thanksgiving, the red for the many holiday parties I have and the green for New Years. If this is your cup of tea, better hurry because it’s only a limited edition and it won’t last!
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?
