Drew Barrymore's Bridal Beauty Advice: 'Look Like Yourself on Your Wedding Day'

Drew Barrymore loves to play around with makeup, which was one of the reasons she founded her own cosmetics line, Flower Beauty. The actress also loves to share beauty advice with fans, and she has a very strong opinion for brides-to-be: Don’t go crazy with the face paint on your wedding day.

“That day is so surreal and important and long-lasting for people, I think the biggest mistake you can make is to overdo it,” she said at her Flower Beauty spring launch in N.Y.C. “Look like yourself on your wedding day — don’t go with crazy spiral curls and some heavy foundation and look back at that picture and be like, ‘Whoa, that doesn’t look like me.’ It should be you but the most enhanced, beautiful natural version of yourself.”

And for those brides thinking about making a big beauty move for the trip down the aisle, Barrymore urges for a softer approach. “I appreciate some women who are like, ‘I really want to change my hair color for that day,’ but it’s not the time to play around. If you are thinking of doing something bold like a nail, pick a shade that has powders and grays and neutrals in it so it tones down the ‘cuckoo factor.’ I think wedding days and ‘cuckoo factor’ are not a good combination.” Read More

Drew Barrymore: I'm Still Wearing the Brown-Red Lipstick Shades from the '90s (The Bangs, Not So Much)

If you’re mildly-obsessed with Drew Barrymore, you’re not alone. The actress-slash-philanthropist-slash-beauty maven is just super cool. Case in point: She knows how to poke fun at herself, especially when it comes to the fashion and beauty decisions of her past.

“I saw what I wore to concerts and red carpets, and I was like, ‘That s–t is crazy,’ but I’m so glad I did it,” Barrymore told PEOPLE of her beauty history. “I’m such a mom now, but it makes me happy to know I had those moments in life. One thing I do love from the ’90s is the brown-red lipsticks. I never did the frosted lips, because it never looked good on me. As crazy as I was, those Wet’n’Wild colors, I knew not to do that.”

At the N.Y.C. launch event for her Flower Beauty spring collection, Barrymore did share one beauty regret from the past: “I’d do the blow dryer and the AquaNet at the same time on my bangs. And that wasn’t so attractive. I looked like Peppermint Patty.”

Apparently the secret to nailing it at the Golden Globes Sunday was to have one very key accessory: a baby bump. We were raving about the looks seen on Drew Barrymore, Olivia Wilde and Kerry Washington, and it wasn’t just because they had that mom-to-be glow.

What is it, exactly, that makes Drew Barrymore so cool? If you ask us on any given day, the answer may vary, but today we have to say it’s because she can do a full face of runway-inspired makeup using colors she designed herself for her cosmetics line, Flower Beauty.

And she did just that Thursday night at the Estée Lauder Modern Muse event in N.Y.C., sporting a fresh, glowing face complete with orange-kissed lips that we loved so much, we couldn’t resist getting all the scoop exclusively from the star herself.

“I wanted to investigate what was going on for Fashion Week and I found a lot of nude nails and a lot of orange lipstick,” she tells PEOPLE. “And so tonight I’m wearing our ‘Go With The Flow-er’ nail polish and our ‘Coral Floret’ lipstick. That way if people want to wear whats on-trend they can with these two items.”

Drew Barrymore Goes Blonde - and Bonds With Emily Blunt

Drew Barrymore must have heard how much we were loving her new, blonder look — because she took the plunge and went platinum.

After gradually transitioning from her dark brunette hue for a few months, the star went to a West Hollywood salon with her pal Emily Blunt (below) for some girl time: Five hours in foils, to be specific, while both lightened up their locks.

And both stars seemed to have a little fun with the paparazzi lurking outside the salon, striking silly poses and getting fits of the giggles — no embarrassment about getting snapped mid-process here at all.

This is the blondest either star has been in quite some time, and we’re loving the lighter hues just in time for summer. We’re almost tempted to book dual salon appointments with our own BFFs for this weekend.

Drew Barrymore Lightens Her Locks: Which Color Do You Like Best?

We’ve been so busy admiring Drew Barrymore‘s lipstick choices lately that we almost completely missed the fact that she’s been slowly lightening her hair for months.

From the deep chocolate hue she was wearing in December, the actress has seemed to go lighter almost from the tips up, getting progressively more ombré before landing on auburn.

Then at Saturday’s GLAAD Awards, she debuted an even blonder style, going for an allover honey color with hints of strawberry that looks amazing with her fair skin.

She’s not the only star who’s been lightening up for spring (see: Sofia, Minka, Julianne and Jennifer), and we are loving this new, blonder crew.

(PS: Still dying to know which lipstick color she wore to GLAAD? We were too, so we found out: It’s her own FLOWER Kiss Stick Velvet lip color in Dahlia Dahling and Line & Shine lip liner in Red.)

Tell us: Which color do you like best on Drew?
