Drew Barrymore’s busy mum beauty routine is actually helpful

Posted in Beauty and Fashion.

Sometimes, when mums go out in the months (or even years) that follow having a baby, they may have forgotten how to fancy themselves up. Luckily Drew Barrymore is here to help.

Drew Barrymore’s genius guide to on-the-go beauty.

Say it with Flower

If you follow Drew you probably already know that she’s the queen of her own makeup empire, Flower Beauty.

Her Instagram account is dotted with useful look-good advice, amidst adorable pics of her daughters, 2-year-old Frankie and 4-year-old Olive. Now Drew’s amped things up a very helpful notch, sharing a short but sweet video showing how she gets her face fancied up on those days when she needs to leave the house and see other grown-ups.

We spotted Drew’s speedy make-up regiment clip over on Vogue’s Facebook page. Granted, there’s quite a number of products – and the ubiquitous contouring gets a look in! – used in this tutorial, but we think there’s plenty to take away in the quest for dewy skin and pretty lips (and you could easily use fewer or other products.)

If you watch the clip through, you’ll hear that not only are Frankie and Olive ALSO upstairs playing with make-up, but Drew also talks about her dream of them taking the Flower Beauty reins some day, if they so choose. A family affair, indeed.



We also noticed that Drew’s not immune to the necessity of getting ready on the go. She recently posted the above cute and very relatable snap to Insta tagging it #commuterbeauty and her public transport makeup game appears solid. It’s not the first time she’s done the train-face thing, either…
