Conscious of her workout regimen and healthy eating habits, Gwyneth Paltrow has entered her forties as beautiful as ever, which is just one of the many reasons we picked the actress and goop.com founder to grace our cover this month. “She’s an American classic beauty,” said celebrity makeup artist Leslie Lopez, who created her radiant cover look. “Her routine has evolved and she looks amazing.” That’s why we sat down with Lopez to get all the details on how she created Paltrow’s fifth cover look. “She doesn’t like a lot of makeup, and doesn’t need it,” she told us, adding that the actress’s basic rule is simple: “Don’t take too long.” Noted! Check out the gallery to see the products Lopez used to create Paltrow’s glowing look, and learn how to get the look yourself.
