Gwyneth Paltrow goes makeup free for her birthday

Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated her birthday by going makeup free on her Instagram account.

The 'Mortdecai' actress turned 44 on Tuesday (27.09.16) and took to the photo sharing website to share her fresh-faced look with her fans with an edited selfie.

She captioned the photo: "#nomakeup for my 44th birthday, embracing my past and future. Thank you for the instalove #goopgoesmakeupfree @goop (sic)"

The birthday selfie isn't the first time the 'Iron Man' actress has decided to cut back on the amount of makeup she wears, as she recently confessed that she often goes out with hardly any products applied to her skin as she says she doesn't have the skill required to make it look good.

Gwyneth - who has two children, Apple, 12, and Moses, 10, with her ex-husband Chris Martin - said: "I often go out with just mascara and a little cheek. I don't use bronzer. You need technique to use bronzer, highlighter and BB cream, all these things my daughter tells me about."

And the Hollywood star - who curates her own lifestyle website called Goop - says if she's going to wear anything on her face at all, she advises fans to stay away from toxic products.

She said previously: "I only use mineral sunscreens, never the chemicals one. I don't understand why anyone would put on carcinogens."

And fans of the 'Shakespeare in Love' actress can get their hands on Gwyneth's beauty products themselves, as Goop sells its own range of organic products on its website. One bottle of 'Goop by Juicy Beauty' moisturiser retails at $100.

The description on the website reads: "Goop by Juice Beauty skincare nurtures your skin with powerful organic ingredients infused into high-tech formulas that deliver immediate and ongoing results."
