It’s no wonder industry icons like Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham, and so many others become unofficial (but totally official) beauty experts. Groomed, coiffed, lacquered, and primped since a tender young age, they’ve grown up alongside the best makeup artists, skin experts, and hairstylists in the industry. Thus, they’re bound to accrue bountiful beauty knowledge, and many of them have even debuted their own lines, brands, collections, and collaborations, including one of our all-time favorites, Drew Barrymore.
In addition to consistently wowing us on the red carpet since the early ’80s, she’s also paid it forward by building her very own cruelty-free makeup brand, Flower Beauty, a godsend for those of us who have admired her aesthetic since we were in scrunchies, leggings, and body glitter. (Actually, that pretty much describes our vibe in 2020, too.)
However, Barrymore’s penchant for all things beauty doesn’t stop there. A self-proclaimed beauty junkie, she’s also refreshingly honest and candid about the products she’s trying and loving on her Instagram, and her #beautyjunkieweek series has become of one our favorite things to follow in our feed. From showing us the hair treatments that have actually transformed her damaged strands to slathering honey all over her face with pal Cameron Diaz, Barrymore is a font of beauty knowledge, inspiration, and all-around FBI-level product intelligence. So we’re celebrating!
Ahead, all the best products, tips, tricks, and rituals we’ve discovered by way of Barrymore’s beauty-centric Instagram feed. Keep scrolling! (And maybe make some room on your bathroom vanity.)
“These work! I’ve tried everything and will continue to find the holy grail for dark circles.”
“OK, I’m going to do something I don’t normally do, which is suggest some expensive baller products. Georgia Louise is the British queen of NYC and her knowledge and products are above and beyond. And more than worth the splurge! I always try to stick within a budget. I don’t buy bags and shoes. I drive a mini van. All the companies I run are affordable. But there is one thing I WILL spoil myself with, and that’s for my face. Call me vain. I don’t care. If you use your products wisely they can really go the distance as well. I’m in the beauty game and I need to keep up. In every way. So I am going to put a few things out today that are… well, baller. We will call it #ballerbeautyday just one day of bling and dreams for the skin. Back to budget life tomorrow!”
