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.”
