Why Gwyneth Paltrow Allows 11-Year-Old Daughter Apple to Wear Makeup
By Alex Ungerman
Apple is already a makeup pro!
While discussing her new partnership with skincare line Juice Beauty, Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that her 11-year-old daughter already knows some tricks of the trade when it comes to makeup -- but she doesn't let it go overboard.
"I let my daughter wear makeup around the house, because she really loves it, but she also does special-effects makeup and she loves to experiment and she’ll do really wild things or she’ll, like, do some Snapchat person with rainbows down the face," the 43-year old told Yahoo! Beauty, admitting, "I don’t even know what that is."
"Sometimes, like, if we’re going to a party, she’ll put on some mascara and then take it off so there’s like a hint," Gwyneth explained. "So she’s allowed to do that, but she’s a bit young for, you know, a full face."
"I’m not sure what the appropriate makeup age is," she added. "Fourteen? Is that too old? Too young? I’ll have to do research I think."
Of course, most importantly, the Oscar winner noted, "I just hope that my daughter always feels beautiful. And I think that absolutely comes from the way you regard yourself and hold yourself."
Meanwhile, Gwyneth revealed that she didn't concern herself with facial care until well into her 30s.
"I was such a tomboy for such a long time with skincare, makeup, facials. I just didn’t really bother. You know, no sunscreen. I was just kinda, like I acted like a kid until I was probably 38 years old and then I looked in the mirror like, OK, it’s time to deal with some of this stuff," she said.
"I wear more makeup now," she shared. "I think when you’re not 25 a little mascara goes a long way."
These days, the actress is known for her fitness and wellness-focused lifestyle, which she said has been, at times, overblown.
"I’m a believer that the consumer is going to start to regulate the industry," she continued, remarking about pesticides and chemicals in beauty products. "Because the industry isn’t regulating for the consumer."
Still, Gwyneth's does prioritize health, which became especially true after her late father, Bruce, was diagnosed with cancer.
"I’m a believer that the consumer is going to start to regulate the industry," she continued, remarking about pesticides, and chemicals in beauty products. "Because the industry isn’t regulating for the consumer."
