We've been fans of Drew Barrymore since, well, forever. When it was announced that she and Will Kopelman would tie the knot, we immediately began dreaming up a fantasy wedding gown for our favorite Hollywood icon. (She ended up walking down the aisle in a stunning Chanel wedding gown, which featured a tulle-embroidered floral skirt and a black belt to accent her growing tummy.) Since then, Barrymore has been busy—baby number two is on the way, and Drew's cosmetics line, Flower Beauty, is taking off! Naturally, when we envisioned an ideal celebrity and role model to pioneer our first-ever celebrity column, Drew immediately came to mind.
"Ask Drew," a wedding-day beauty column penned by Barrymore, is set to debut with our February/March issue.
"We are thrilled to have Drew on board to help our brides look and feel their best on their wedding day," said Brides Editor in Chief Keija Minor. "From the minute I met Drew, I knew that she was not only a red carpet legend and beauty, she was also passionate about her new cosmetics line, Flower Beauty, and eager to share her extensive beauty knowledge with other women. Her Brides magazine column, 'Ask Drew,' will give her the opportunity to do just that. She'll be helping brides get ready for one of the most important days of their life."
It seems as though the beauty route was inevitable for the self-proclaimed beauty junkie who "grew up in a makeup chair." She has her own makeup line, Flower Beauty, and Drew's own wedding look was the picture of perfection. We loved everything from her sleek topknot to her rosy cheeks, pink lipstick and perfectly manicured nails. It was exactly how a bride should look on her wedding day: Pretty, fresh and totally herself.
Needless to say, we are very excited—as we're sure you guys are, too—to see what advice the star has in store for us. But the best part of all? You, dear readers, will get to ask her your own bridal beauty questions! Start sending them now to firstname.lastname@example.org, and keep picking up the latest issue to see if your questions are featured. In the meantime, if you need something to occupy your time until December 24 when the issue hits stands, check out Flower Beauty's website and Facebook page, which offer tips, tricks and tutorials from Drew herself on how to best apply your makeup.
