JUST A TINT
“Gwyneth has flawless skin to begin with, so tinted moisturizer is all you need—just a little something to even out the skin tone (although this one from NARS has a bit more coverage than the average). Use your fingers to apply, beginning at the t-zone and working your way out. If you feel you need a little spot coverage, NARS Creamy Concealer will do the trick.”

GOLDEN EYE
“Using the #7P pointed eyeshadow brush from Utowa, go for the more champagne color on the right of this duo. Give the eyelid a wash of hue, then draw along the bottom lash line with the point of the brush and frame the eye.”

CASTING SHADOWS
“Follow up with the bronze color on the left, switching to Utowa’s #13 brush and taking just a little of the product onto the tip. Trace along the crease of the eye, working your way toward the inner corners for a shadowy, smoky feel.”

A COAT OF BLACK
“This is a really great mascara to coat the lashes and give them color. We want them to be super black but not too dramatic—one swipe and you’re good.”

ENHANCED BROWS
“You want to honor the way brows frame your face—don’t change them, just enhance. For those with super fine or light brows, this is an ideal product, as the texture coats your hairs and gives them a little bit of color. Use Utowa’s Oblique Eyebrow brush to fill in as needed.”

THE GWYNETH GLOW
“I love this color because it doesn’t have any shimmer or shine—it’s just a really nice, neutral cream blush. Use the tip of your middle finger to tap it on, starting from the center of the cheek and moving upward in circular motions. I always like to smile when I apply cream blush so I can see the apple of the cheek clearly.”

X MARKS THE SPOT
“When lining lips I like to draw a little X right at the cupid’s bow as a guide. Carefully outline the rest of the lips with this warm color. It’s a ’90s look, after all, so the lips have to be lined!”

THE PERFECT LIP
“Continue the ’90s feel with this deep rose lipstick from YSL. Apply straight from the bullet and you’re done.”
