Gwyneth Paltrow is launching her first organic make-up range with Juice Beauty, so it comes as no surprise that the world of beauty has been on her mind.

Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed daughter Apple loves make-up

"I let my daughter wear make-up around the house, because she really loves it, but she also does special-effects make-up and she loves to experiment and she'll do really wild things so she'll like, do some Snapchat person with rainbows down the face," Gwyneth explained to Yahoo! Beauty.

The Iron Man actress revealed that when they leave the house, she prefers for Apple to go make-up free as "she's a bit young".

She added: "Sometimes like if we're going to a party, she'll put on some mascara and then take it off so there's like a hint. So she's allowed to do that, but she's a bit young for, you know, a full face."

The actress admitted that she is still trying to decide on what is "appropriate" when it comes to letting her little girl play with different looks.

"I'm not sure what the appropriate make-up age is, probably, I don't know, 14?" she said. "Is that too old? Too young? I'll have to do some research I think."

Gwyneth also confessed that it was her daughter who inspired her to research into organic make-up, after seeing Apple trying different products.

"I was never into make-up and beauty in my twenties. My daughter is the exact opposite of me – she's basically a fledgling make-up artist," Gwyneth explained. "She watches YouTube and all that and loves make-up, which is another reason I'm so happy that this line is going to come out because she likes to play with make-up and I prefer it to be nontoxic."

The Shakespeare in Love actress also revealed that she tries to encourage her daughter to feel beautiful no matter what look she's playing around with. "I just hope that my daughter always feels beautiful," she said. "And I think that absolutely comes from the way you regard yourself and hold yourself.

"I think there’s so many women who might not be classically beautiful but who just are so beautiful—they’re so alluring because you can just tell they’re so into themselves, you know, in a good way. So I hope she has that quality."
