Want Gwyneth Paltrow’s body? She shares her secrets!

Gwyneth Patlrow LOVES to talk about her body. Probably because her trainer, Tracy Anderson, is also her partner. The pair have produced four exercise DVDs together, each selling over 20,000 copies in Britain alone. They also co-wrote a book, ’30-Day Me.’

In a post for The Telegraph, the actress said that the key to staying in shape is a consistent exercise regime, regular detoxes and the occasional weekend treat (hers includes wine and cigarettes!).

Must Exercise: “Keep up consistent exercise. I am dedicated to the Tracy Anderson Method and it has completely changed my body. Still, when I first started working with Tracy, finding motivation was hard. She advised me to think of exercise as an automatic routine, no different from brushing your teeth, to avoid getting distracted. Now it is part of my life – I exercise Monday to Friday at 10am and always stick with it. I’d also recommend concentrating on moving more – we sit for so much of the day. Choose to walk or take the stairs, or briskly climb a hill in the evenings. It creates good muscle tone and boosts your metabolism.”

Measure in Inches, Not Pounds: “There is something punitive about weighing yourself. It can leave you vulnerable to shame and guilt, and it messes with you psychologically. Women naturally gain and lose weight during their monthly cycle anyway, so it can be more realistic to monitor your body shape with a measuring tape.”

Give Yourself a Treat Every Now and Then: “Stay away from processed foods, though cutting them out completely is no fun and can ultimately lead to a binge. Allow yourself programmed treats – I often have a glass of red wine in the evening and smoke a cigarette on a Saturday. I love those moments because they are just the right amount of naughty. That balance keeps you vibrant. You have to live your life, after all.”

Butter London Color Cosmetics is launching a brand makeup collection this August! I love all the vibrant colors, I can’t wait to check out some of these in person.

The Bespoke Colour Cosmetics collection introduces WINK Mascara (6 Shades, $20 each), WINK Cream Eye Shadow (6 Shades, $18 each), WINK Eye Pencil (6 Shades, $18 each), LIPPY Tinted Balm (6 Shades, $20 each), and CHEEKY Cream Blush (4 Shades, $20 each).

The Bespoke Color Cosmetics Collection delivers the unparalleled quality and long-lasting wear you’ve come to know and love from Butter London’s lacquers and Lippy’s, with a continued commitment to non-toxic, paraben-free formulas.

Butter London Lippy Tinted Balm $20
A tinted lip balm that delivers the moisture of a lip balm with the finish and colour of a lipstick in six subtle shades to highlight the glow of every skin tone. These creamy balms are the perfect accessory for women-on-the-go. “The semi-matte finish from the LIPPY Tinted Balms creates a really modern and chic look,” says Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador. “For added shine, layer a Lippy Sheer Gloss on top of the balm for an enhanced lip look, or for a matte finish, simply blot with a tissue or kiss the back of your hand – this will take all of the shine away.”

  • Toasted Marshmallow (nude cream)
  • Axis Kiss (punchy pink cream)
  • Apricot Subway (coral cream)
  • Abbey Rose (rose cream)
  • Strawberry Field (red cream)
  • Black Cherry (wine cream)

An ultra silky, sheer formula delivers a burst of cheek colour by way of these perfectly portable compacts. The buildable shades can be dabbed onto the cheeks and blended seamlessly for a subtle look or layered for a look that’s a bit more fierce. “This cream blush is great as a multi-use product,” says Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador. “The creamy, smooth formula can be used on lips, too, for when you’re looking to create a flawlessly matched look, which I’m a huge fan of. Using the middle and ring fingers on each hand to extract the colour, rub your fingers together to evenly distribute the colour and then apply simultaneously to both cheeks so you get even symmetry with the colour.”

  • Naughty Biscuit (rosy nude cream)
  • Honey Pie (peach pink cream)
  • Abbey Rose (rose pink cream)
  • Pistol Pink (fuchsia pink cream)’

Butter London Wink Colour Mascara $20
With four bright, look-at-me shades, and two basics, this refined mascara delivers perfect application from root to tip adding drama to any makeup look. The highly pigmented buildable formula results in long-lasting, brilliant colour. “For a high fashion editorial look, use this multitasking wand and apply your favourite colour to your hair or eyebrows,” says Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador. “If you’re easing your way into a bold lash look, simply add a pop of colour on the bottom lashes only. Even if the colour transfers to the skin under your eye, own it! Blend the mascara lightly with your ring finger to rock a chic grunge look. Beware-this look is not for the faint of heart.”

  • Pistol Pink (magenta pink shimmer)
  • Inky Six (cornflower blue shimmer)

The lightweight formula in these velvety cream shadows delivers a vibrant wash of colour that dries into a smooth, shimmer finish. The Wink shadows are available in a variety of blendable shades that can be layered to deepen the intensity for a bold burst of colour. “When applying a cream shadow, dot the shadow onto the back of your hand first, then use your ring finger to blend the colour onto your lids, ” says Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador. “Your ring finger tends to apply the least amount of pressure around the eye area which eases the application process for a natural, blended look.”

  • Sun Kiss (gold shimmer)
  • Jade Jack (grass green shimmer)
  • Pistol Pink (rose pink shimmer)
  • Inky Six (baby blue shimmer)

  • Pistol Pink (magenta pink shimmer)
  • Inky Six (cornflower blue shimmer)
  • Indigo Purple (violet shimmer)

Butter London Rock Your Colour Nail Lacquer Collection $15
Inspired by Butter London’s new Wink Mascara and Eye Pencil shades, these stunning nail lacquers take the guesswork out of matching your eye and nail look. First seen on the runways, the matching trend now takes center stage on the streets, as Butter London girls rock their colour. “These bold lacquers can be worn alone,” says Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador, “but were created with the boldest nail looks possible in mind. There are no rules when it comes to nails – have fun with it, don’t be serious! I love simple nail art looks you can create using supplies from around the house. My favourite is using saran wrap for a vintage, textured effect. Once you’ve painted your base colour, pour a second shade onto a piece of foil (this will keep the lacquer cool which allows you more time to apply without the formula drying). Then take a small piece of saran wrap and bunch it up into a very small, uneven ball so you have different edges. Dip the saran wrap into the lacquer and dab onto your nails sparingly, trying to make each nail look a bit different.”

  • Jaded Jack (opaque lime green cream)
  • Pistol Pink (opaque magenta pink shimmer)
  • Brown Sugar (opaque copper shimmer with gold glitter)
  • Inky Six (medium coverage deep blue glitter)
  • Indigo Punk (full coverage indigo purple glitter)
  • Union Jack Black (opaque glossy jet black cream)

 

The collection will be launching August 1st on Ulta.com and butterlondon.com.
