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!

Achieving those highly covetable beach waves doesn't mean you have to head to the ocean. It doesn't mean you have to break out the curling iron or store-bought texturizing spray, either. Save a few pennies with this DIY salt spritz — and stock up on sunscreen with the cash you save. Fabrice Gili, creative director of Frédéric Fekkai SoHo, divulged his quick and easy recipe for carefree waves that requires only three ingredients (all of which you probably have sitting around at home).
- Step 1: Take an empty and clean spray bottle and fill it up with eight ounces of water.
- Step 2: Add two heaping tablespoons of kosher or sea salt to the water and shake.
- Step 3: Mix a teaspoon of your favorite hair gel to the saltwater solution and shake it once again. This will give hair a little bit more texture.
- Step 4: Spray a liberal amount onto wet or very damp hair and do not brush through; finger-comb only, if necessary. Scrunch hair in your hands to help curls form, or just leave it be and let it air dry naturally.
