Gwyneth’s EMMY look created using Beautyblender

I just received Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest GOOP newsletter to find that her make up artist created her flawless complexion look for the EMMY’s using the brilliant Beautyblender make up sponge (can you spot it’s brilliant pinkness in the backstage pics above?). I’m addicted to mine and it makes almost any foundation look good. For the foundation to stay looking good, that’s down to the brand you choose.

Face Atelier Ultra Foundation is the one Madonna makes everyone use for her tours as it doesn’t even budge through one of her dance routines and they are TOUGH.
