LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Gwyneth Paltrow went makeup-free on her 44th birthday Tuesday.
The Mortdecai star celebrated her "past and future" by sharing a bare-faced photo with her 2.6 million Instagram followers.
"#nomakeup for my 44th birthday, embracing my past and future. Thank you for the instalove #goopgoesmakeupfree @goop," she captioned the selfie.
Paltrow had told the New York Times in April that she "generally" doesn't wear much makeup on a day-to-day basis. She did reveal, however, that she enjoys trying new and sometimes bizarre beauty treatments.
"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," the actress said.
"Generally, I'm open to anything," she added. "I've been stung by bees. It's a thousands of years old treatment called apitherapy. People us it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It's actually pretty incredible if you research it."
Paltrow launched her own organic cosmetics line in collaboration with Juice Beauty in January. She also continues to oversee her lifestyle website, Goop, which she admitted can be "excruciating" in a recent interview.
