Last night at the Los Angeles premiere of Iron Man 3, Gwyneth Paltrow's natural beauty shone bright thanks to a subtle makeup look. "My inspiration for Gwyneth’s look was the earth," her makeup artist Angela Levin said. "She reminds me of all the things I love about our world!"
The focus of this look was the eyes, which had a sheer smokiness. Levin used the darkest shade in the Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Lilium ($59) as liner. She then varied the green hues on the lid, using the lightest pink as a highlight under the brow. To add even more intensity near the lash line, Levin smudged a large black eye pencil with a Q-tip.
Of course, no eye makeup is complete without voluminous lashes. Levin primed Gwyneth's lashes first before adding three coats of black mascara plus one coat on the bottom lashes. Gwyneth's cheeks were highlighted with a pale bronzing powder, and finally lips were accented with a pink gloss, Glossimer in Rose Sauvage ($30). All together, the natural palette played up the beauty she was born with. She is the World's Most Beautiful Woman after all!
