Gwyneth Paltrow was one of the biggest glamour queens of the 1990s as she hit movie premiere red carpets and fancy fashion parties with heavy makeup on and stick straight golden locks.
Since then the ex of Brad Pitt has preferred to go makeup free as she has said it feels more ‘natural.’
And while in Europe this month, the 48-year-old actress turned GOOP founder has gone without the glitz again. The Oscar-winning actress was seen on Monday without her makeup as she posed with some pals in Paris.

The star smiled from ear to ear as she was makeup free with her blonde hair pulled back. She added layers of chunky necklaces; one of the pendants had an A for daughter Apple and a M for son Moses.
The women with her beamed as well.
‘A very special afternoon with @amygriffin @ateliersheilahicks @suzannedemisch in a hidden corner of #paris,’ said the Iron Man actress in her caption.
Amy is the Founder of @G9_Ventures and co-founder @SocialStudiesParty.

‘No stop to Paris complete without a visit to the maestro Dr Dray,’ said the daughter of Blythe Danner.
He is popular for his ‘lip refresh,’ which is an aesthetic treatment that ‘consists of injections of a fluid, non-volumizing and vitamin E, which smooth out lines around the mouth, and rehydrate and redefine the lips,’ according to his website Drdray.co.uk.
In March the siren said that she was ‘open’ to getting injectables: ‘I think it’s nice when women share, because there’s a lot of shame around surgery or injectables or fillers, and it would be nice if people felt confident about the choices they were making. But if they want to have a beauty secret, that’s okay, too. I’m an open book—I’ve shared what works for me, because that’s how I’ve always learned.’

This year she was signed as the spokeswoman for Xeomin, an FDA-approved anti-wrinkle injection for frown lines between the eyebrows.
Gwyneth has talked in the past about going makeup free. In 2020 she told UsWeekly she was ’embracing looking natural.’
And she added: ‘I never want to do anything where I don’t look like myself. I don’t want to look younger. That’s not the thing. I just want to look rested, vibrant. I want to look good for my age.’
Last week she and husband Brad Falchuk appeared to be delighted to play ‘tourists’ as they took in the sights around Florence, Italy.
The Shakespeare In Love actress showed off her sun-kissed skin as she held up her iPhone to capture the perfect selfie with the historic Ponte Vecchio in the background.

Gwyneth captioned the sweet snap with her husband of nearly three years: ‘Tourists at long last.’
This comes just days after Italy opened its borders to travelers after a nearly 15-month closure due to the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
No carbohydrate was left uneaten on their tour of Italy as they stopped by Massimo Masselli’s Osteria Del Cinghiale Bianco.
She shared a photo from the popular restaurant with the caption: ‘Ask to sit up in the birds nest.’

Paltrow met Falchuk in 2010 when she appeared on the hit television musical series Glee, which he co-created and produced.
They would reconnect in the latter part of 2014, after her split from first husband and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, and eventually go public with their relationship in April 2015. Palrow and Falchuk went on to tie-the-knot in September 2018.
Chris and Gwyneth have remained close and friendly as they co-parent their daughter Apple, 17, and son Moses, 15.
