Drew Barrymore's powerful photo goes viral

Drew Barrymore is one woman who we just can’t get enough of.

From her 90s pinup status to her searing honesty about parenting, divorce and body image, the woman is an icon in her own right.

And now Drew has been given the beauty vlogger treatment when she was called in by super influencer Nikki Tutorials. And the result is going viral for all the right reasons.

Nikki, who boasts over 10 million followers on Instagram, called in the Santa Clarita Diet star for one of her signature ‘half-face of makeup’ looks, and the results are incredible.

In the video recorded for YouTube, Drew is given half a face of heavy makeup, while the other half is left fresh-faced and bare.

Aside for being extremely satisfying to watch, the experiment proves the transformative power makeup can have.

However, we can all agree she looks gorgeous both ways.

When Drew invited me to Santa Barbara to get to know her makeup brand Flower Beauty (now at ULTA!) a little more, I asked Drew to join me on my channel for a POWER OF MAKEUP day! She said yes,” Nikki wrote.

“Drew is gorgeous both ways, but still, it was beyond surreal to see the power of makeup on this icon!”

The actress seemed to be equally as chuffed with the result, writing on Instagram: “I mean look at this picture. 

“Nikkie! I wish I could have preserved this look forever! I cry as I am washing your make up off every time!”

It’s not the first time Drew has got honest about beauty, after posting an undeniably ‘real’ no makeup selfie last year.

Drew shared the snap on Instagram along with the caption “OH MY GOD how did I let it get this bad. Base and brows needed.”

The internet – understandably – couldn’t get enough of it.

“Thank you for posting a pic of a person looking like a real, living person as opposed to the new norm which is flawless frozen and embalmed,” one person commented at the time.

We need more celebs like Drew.
