Drew Barrymore Radiates on the Cover of Harper’s Bazaar

By  January 31, 2013

Drew Barrymore showed off her natural glow on the March 2013 covers of Harper’s Bazaar and gave readers insight on her journey into motherhood. The multi-tasking mama talked about her transition from the movie set to the beauty aisle and her daughter, Olive. Check out some of the highlights from her interview that’s set to hit newsstands on Feb. 12th.

On keeping Olive’s birth under wraps:

I definitely needed some time. For a solid six weeks, I was hiding like the Unabomber.  Because I live my life in the public eye, I didn’t want that for her. Unless I move into a bunker underground, I don’t have a choice in this matter. It was something that took me weeks to cope with.

On Olive being born into fame:
I know she didn’t sign up for that. I had such an exposed childhood. I appreciate my journey, but I don’t want that for my kid. Not any of it. It has nothing to do with whether I liked my childhood. I really did. But as a parent, that isn’t the childhood that I’d provide.

On her transition away from acting:
I didn’t feel I could do a lot with fashion because I wear sweatpants that I find on the floor. I live for makeup and I like wine. These are my truths!

On her self-love approach to her new makeup line, Flower:
I grew up in a makeup chair, and to see the women around me getting ready was so aspirational. It’s about mothers and daughters, a girl watching her mom at a vanity table. I didn’t want a cold campaign with severe messaging. I wanted warmth and acceptance and self-love. Nobody’s in gold rain or running through a jungle with their lipstick on. It was just me and some great music on a white background. That’s every girl, in her closet getting ready.
