This Is What Happened When Drew Barrymore Did My Makeup


Flower Beauty is the cosmetics line founded by actress, producer, director and real-life "Charlie's Angel"В Drew Barrymore. Her line has recently launched in the UK, and we couldn't be any more excited. Although the super-affordable Flower Beauty has been established in the U.S. for years, it's never made its way over to this side of the pond-until now. Drew came to London yesterday to launch the line in Superdrug, and as it also happened to be the Byrdie Christmas party last night, I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and getВ her to help me out. Yes, that's right-Drew Barrymore did my Christmas party makeup for me.

Concealer

I'm forever battling with dark circles, so I really need a concealer that will pack a pigment punch. Barrymore assured me she has my back and let me know that her trouble area is also dark under-eye circles. She applied Flower Beauty Light Illusion Concealer (ВЈ9) under my eyes in a deep V-shape before blending with her finger.

Highlight

Next up, highlighter. Since it's Christmas, we decided to big on the glow. She used Flower Beauty Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting PaletteВ (ВЈ13) across my cheekbones, forehead, brow bone, nose, and Cupid's bow.

Glow Drops

Barrymore says Flower Beauty'sВ Supernova Celestial Skin Elixir Primer (ВЈ15) has become a cult buy from the brand. The purple-hued primer is packed with shimmer pigments, and Barrymore says it sells out frequently: "Even though they look super glittery, they just leave your skin with a super-hydrated sheen. Mix them with foundation or apply them on their own."

Foundation

Next, for foundation, Barrymore used her hands to mix together the primer drops and Flower Beauty Light Illusion Foundation (ВЈ13). "I learned from the great Pat McGrath (when I was doing CoverGirl with her) that even though I've highlighted and concealed, I'm just going to go in with this beautiful dew and press it into the skin."

Powder

To set everything in place, Barrymore swept translucent powder under my eyes and through my T-zone. "We love the glow, but no woman wants to be high-lit in the oily T-zone," she says.

Mascara

Next up came mascara. Disclaimer: I already had mascara on and usually hate applying more mascara on top, however, Barrymore insisted on "getting in on those lashes," and you can't really argue with her. She applied two more coats of her Warrior mascara on top of my own, and I can vouch for the fact that it really did give my lashes a full-on falsies effect.

Lipstick

Instead of opting for a classic red Christmas lip, Barrymore combined two shades to create an ombrГ© lip "like they do in South Korea." She first applied Flower Beauty Miracle Matte Liquid Lipstick in Dark and Stormy (ВЈ8)-a soft brown that although matte, feels light and comfortable on the lips. Then she went in with Flower Beauty Mix N' Matte Lipstick Duo in Violet Vixen (ВЈ8) and applied it to the center of my lips (this is the exact shade she had on-NBD).

Lipgloss

To finish the ombrГ© lip, Barrymore used the gloss end of Mix N' Matte Lipstick Duo to highlight the center of my lips to create a kissable effect.

Bronzer

For bronzer, Barrymore swept the Flower Beauty Lift & Sculpt Contour Palette (ВЈ13) across my cheekbones and dГ©colletage with a full, fluffy brush.

Extra Highlighter

And, just because it's Christmas, she went in again with yet more highlighter to enhance the lip and Cupid's bow.

The Finished Look

Et violà -my final Christmas party makeup look, as created by Drew Barrymore. Let me tell you that not once did I touch-up my makeup through the night, and even the lipstick stayed fully intact through multiple cheese boards and wine. Impressive, eh?
