Drew Barrymore’s £3.50 travel beauty secret is one that we can all copy

If there’s one thing that Drew Barrymore knows – other than pitch-perfect acting, obviously – it’s beauty. Having worked with some of the biggest names in make-up artistry for years, she’s also completed a stint as a co-creative director of major American line CoverGirl, and seven years ago, launched her very own range, Flower Beauty.

Now that range has landed in the UK (keep your eyes peeled at your local Superdrug), Drew has been crossing the ocean more often than usual to oversee its arrival, but still manages to look as fresh-faced and flawless as usual. Her secret? She says it’s a £3.50 spray that you can keep in your carry-on.

‘A mini Evian mister is so good!’ the star exclaimed during a recent interview with Vogue. I’m not one of those fliers who stretches and drinks eight ounces of water every hour. I’m like, give me the Bloody Mary and the sheet mask! It’s free. I paid a thousand dollars for this ticket but I will take this crappy wine of yours and all the peanuts and crackers.’

We all know the importance of hydration when it comes from our skin, and the Evian mister that Drew swears by help you to add moisture from the outside – plus, the 50ml size means it’s perfect for tossing in your hand luggage when you’re on the go. The multitasking spray also make a great base for make-up, or to refresh the product you’ve already applied later in the day.

During her interview, Drew also revealed another (free!) trick that she finds works wonders for her skin: exercise.

‘The way I look afterwards, my skin is dewy pink and plump, it’s so amazing,’ she explained. ‘I’m always like, “yes, this is what I’m supposed to be doing every day”, and then three weeks go by and I’m like, “gotta get to a workout class again”.’
