Ever gazed upon the face of a celeb and thought to yourself, “Dang, I wish I could look that #flawless?”
Well, fam, there’s a whole lot that goes into getting a celeb ready for high-gloss magazine photos, high-def TV appearances and big screens. And when they haven’t put the work in, they actually look an awful lot like (*gasp!*) normal people.
Don’t believe me? Feast your eyes upon a makeup-free selfie posted by Drew Barrymore, who did what many of us can only dream of doing: post a very real, very unfiltered selfie that shows off the fact that her brows are a little more untamed than usual. How can someone still look so dang good between brow appointments?
“OH MY GOD How did I let it get this bad. Base and brows needed,” Barrymore wrote before referencing her Santa Clarita Diet character, Sheila Hammond, and the work it’s gonna take to get ready to film the show’s second season. “#becomingsheila… Must become her. #santaclaritadiet here we go again. Season two.”
Barrymore is kind of known for living a makeup-free life, so it’s not all that surprising that she got really into enjoying her downtime and focused on having fun instead of keeping up appearances — something we could all learn a little bit from, ya know? Even though she has her own makeup line, she told The New York Times in January that her own beauty routine is as minimal as they come.
“I would say 90 percent of my life, I wear zero makeup,” she said at the time.
OK, but can she teach me her ways? Because no way in hell am I leaving the house without filling in my brows. Ugh.
