Motherhood has changed Drew Barrymore in lots of ways. When the 43-year-old actress recently appeared on the UK TV show This Morning to dish on all of her beauty secrets, she revealed that being a mom-of-two has changed her beauty routine and made her overall look “more subdued.”
“I think that my makeup has changed over the years in that I’m a mom now. I’m not going to concert festivals so I think things are a little more subdued,” she said. But don’t worry, just because Drew has toned down her look doesn’t mean that she’s quit wearing bold lipstick colors and sharing her favorite hues with her fans on Instagram. Just last month she posted a pic of herself sporting a bright red lip to promote her new Flower Beauty cosmetics line.
But unlike Drew, her daughters, Olive Kopelman, 6, and Frankie Kopelman, 4, don’t mind experimenting with different types of makeup from time to time. “My daughter has taken over, and she will just take a red lipstick and paint the coolest stripes on her face. She’s so expressive and into color play and I just let her,” she gushed.
Drew also said she feels most beautiful when she goes makeup-free. “I feel confident without makeup because I wear makeup so much for my job,” she said. “Sometimes I look in the mirror and think ‘Oh my god’ but it’s nice to get away from vanity and just be yourself.”
And Drew doesn’t like to hide her flaws at all. She recently took to Instagram to show that everything is not what it seems like on social media. Drew did this by sharing a photo of herself crying next to another photo of herself looking all dolled up. “What I propose [is] some days are great and beautiful,” she captioned the two pics. “Sure, I can be this with two hours of hair and makeup and amazing photography and lighting. I also feel beautiful after a sweaty workout… But it all takes work!”
