In celebration of her 44th birthday, Gwyneth Paltrow has joined the small but mighty cavalry of female celebrities to go au natural (men have been doing this for centuries and also a legion of non-famous women—brave!) and she looks great.

"#nomakeup for my 44th birthday, embracing my past and future," she wrote in the caption. "Thank you for the instalove."

Even without makeup, Gwyneth still looks gorgeous! It's good to be reminded that we don't need to paint our faces to be beautiful. All we need is to be genetically blessed. And have access to expensive spa regimes (vagina steaming). Oh, and $15k sex toys. And heaps of cash. Easy!
