Paltrow captions the photo: “#nomakeup for my 44th birthday, embracing my past and future. Thank you for the Instalove. #goopgoesmakeupfree.” 


"One of the most interesting things about being a woman is that around the time you turn 40, you get what I like to call a software upgrade," Paltrow says in a statement. "Along with it comes some amazing new features, the roadmap to true self-acceptance, real insight into you are, and kind of not giving a s#*t about the things that are unimportant. You find yourself investing in relationships that give as much as they get, you start to get a sense of the true size of your worth (immeasurable), you start to like yourself for who you really are (warts and all). The future suddenly has scarcity to it, and the past is all over your face. I have been very inspired by the #nomakeup movement as the message behind it says, here I am, this is me. This is what I look like, this is where I am in time, and I embrace it."
