Drew Barrymore Talks About Bridal Makeup and Style

Drew Barrymore says brides should look naturally beautiful on their wedding day.

The 39-year-old actress thinks women will regret their big day's makeup and hair choices years after the momentous occasion if they over-do it and end up not looking like themselves.

She explained to People magazine: "That day is so surreal and important and long-lasting for people, I think the biggest mistake you can make is to overdo it."

"Look like yourself on your wedding day, don't go with crazy spiral curls and some heavy foundation and look back at that picture and be like, 'Whoa, that doesn't look like me.' It should be you but the most enhanced, beautiful natural version of yourself."

Drew thinks brides shouldn't use their wedding day to experiment with different styles and colors, and insists they should tone down the "cuckoo factor".

She said: "I appreciate some women who are like, 'I really want to change my hair color for that day,' but it's not the time to play around.

"If you are thinking of doing something bold like a nail, pick a shade that has powders and greys and neutrals in it so it tones down the 'cuckoo factor.' I think wedding days and 'cuckoo factor' are not a good combination."

Drew contemplated having "dark lips" when she wed Will Kopelman in 2012 and is glad she decided against it in the end.

She added: "I tried to do a dark lip on my own wedding day, and I just wasn't feeling it. I went very natural. It took me 10 minutes to do my hair and I wore very little make-up, and I'm glad I did. I'm all for bold, but I just find that's not the day for it."
