Confused about what kind of makeup look you should go with for your upcoming nuptials? Drew Barrymore has one fantastic makeup tip: don’t go crazy!
“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 New York this week.
“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 if you’re thinking of trying out a bold new look, the mom-to-be has a few words of caution. “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.”
Wise words! The actress, who married Will Kopelman in 2012, chose a simple look for her wedding day.
“I tried to do a dark lip on my own wedding day, and I just wasn’t feeling it. I went very natural. It took me 10 minutes to do my hair and I wore very little makeup, and I’m glad I did. I’m all for bold, but I just find that’s not the day for it.”
