I love how Drew speaks candidly about her favorite things related to beauty, how she feels about her body post babies and more with Glamour!
Drew Barrymore, star of the upcoming film Miss You Already—and creator of Flower Beauty—shares her personal truths.
Her favorite feature: My hair. It takes a licking and keeps on ticking. I destroy it time and time again, and it’s still there, semi-happy. I love playing with it; it’s like my personal plant—I keep getting to prune it.
Her favorite look on a man: I love beards. They’re the sexiest. But I will say that under no circumstances is a goatee OK. And soul patches are insanity! What is that all about?
Her signature look: I feel perfect when I match my cheeks to my lips. It brightens up my whole face, that monochromatic color splash.
Her body wisdom: After making two babies, holy cow, does your body do some crazy stuff! It’s hard to stay positive and love yourself. You feel like a kangaroo with a giant pouch; everything’s saggy and weird. But you think about how beautiful it is that you’re able to make children. When I lose sight of that, I exercise, read Dr. Seuss’s Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, and spend time with my kids. Then I start to see things that are bigger than myself.
Her desert-island essentials: I’m lost without Aquaphor Healing Ointment [$8, at drugstores], as lip balm and for every other odd emergency. I’ll give anything not to have a zit, including buying Christine Chin’s Hydrating Toner [$28, christinechin.com].
Her selfie secret: You don’t always have to look stunning on Instagram. I’ve been makeupless, pregnant, and stuffing food in my face in many pictures; that makes it all the more exciting when I do do something more attractive. I don’t like it when everyone looks so perfect all the time. Where’s the humor in that?
Her Signature Scent: “It’s inspired by the morning and that light that pours into your windows. A beautiful chaos of vanilla, lemon, and cabbage rose.” Flower Cherished Fragrance eau de parfum ($25 for 1 oz., walmart.com)
Her Proudest Product Creation: “It’s a rollerball concealer you can use under the eyes or on sun damage. It’s awesome: It gives great coverage and works on everyone.” Flower D.B. Daily Brightening Undereye Cover Creme ($9, walmart.com)
Her Favorite Makeup Look: “I love a bright lip and bright eyeshadow. Just don’t throw a ton of liner or mascara on top, and it can still look clean.” CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Tempt Berry ($7, ulta.com)
Her Boldest Beauty Move: “I found this photo of myself [from 2003] with burgundy lips and canary yellow shadow, which was all over my lids and possibly past my brows! It was very hard to pull off, but I’m glad I rocked it.” Make Up for Ever Artist Shadow in #S-402 ($21, sephora.com)
