Gwyneth Paltrow Goes Makeup Free in Dude Ranch Selfie

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t do anything halfway, and that includes playing cowgirl for a week. The actress and Goop lifestyle guru went to Big Sky Country recently (yep, Montana — read all about it here) and one of her souvenirs was this fresh-faced selfie, complete with rancher hat, plaid top and not a hint of makeup.

Paltrow visited the Paws Up dude ranch in Missoula with her children Apple, 10, and Moses, 8, where they enjoyed activities including trail rides, campfires and ATV riding. And even she poked fun at her big-city-girl-on-the-farm demeanor, posting a photo on Goop that she captioned “#cityslicker.” But it seemed like she got the hang of it by the end, if her big smile (and clean face) are any indication.

Of course, because it’s Goop, the trip had to be merched appropriately — you can “dress the part” for your own open country excursion with a $665 Isabel Marant blanket coat, $1,695 puffy vest and $160 jean shorts. But at least you’ll save on foundation and mascara?

Simply gorgeous. No make up is better than a selfie with 10 lbs of make up on your face. She’s a beautiful woman!

she is so self-absorbed, she ties with kim k for narcissism

Wow! She looks so young without makeup. Pretty lady, with or without it.

So brave of this woman. I mean it really take some courage to take a make up free selfie with a photo filter. She’s really putting it all out there for us, again!

She looks very pretty in her photo. I love the freckles! It’s sad that so many women feel that unless you have on make-up, you are not pretty or presentable. Maybe that’s big city thinking, but considering her photo was taken at a ranch, it is appropriate that she looks so wholesome. Good for you, Gwyneth!

i must be the only people reader who likes gwyneth, and i don’t understand why everyone hates her. “goop” isn’t unrealistic for the sake of being snobby- it’s like a fantasy of what you could do if you had a bigger budget…not unlike your pinterest pages, ladies.

I’m not a Gwenyth fan but I think she looks beautiful here. Fresh faced.

$1600 for a puffy vest to wear out on the ranch. She’s insane.

I LOVE Gwyneth and I think the people who criticize her are just jealous. I don’t think she tries to be anybody but herself and that’s exactly who she should be. So what if she has expensive tastes, her budget allows for it. Get over it people!!!
