Drew Barrymore has been out of the spotlight for the past few years, so what has she been up to? Barrymore has been focusing on her beauty and accessories brand, Flower Beauty. Barrymore said,
“Flower has changed my life because it lets me be a mom the way I want to be and I still get to do something meaningful and think about girls and women and empowering messages… I love movies but the hours right now for where my kids are in their life, it’s few and far between that I’ll work.”
Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman have two young daughters, Olive who is 2 and Frankie who is just 15 months.
She said that she has turned down several movie offers because,
“Flower beauty is a full time job. We do a lot of traveling for it. I do a lot of press. I go to labs all over the country, truly seeking out the most innovative things.”
Available only at Walmart, Flower’s new eyewear line consists of 12 different sunglasses and 24 optical styles, with readers coming soon.
Walmart’s Senior Vice President of Health and Wellness, Carmen Bauza, said,
“Drew is involved and she is involved in every detail. It’s not like she’s managing from somewhere out there and has someone else is doing it. I know when it hits the shelves, it’s got her seal of approval and that gives me peace of mind.”
Barrymore described the inspiration for her eyewear collection by saying,
“The best place for eyewear inspiration is flea markets and then also department stores and then hybriding the two, seeing what’s current and important to people right now and cutting edge and then bringing that vintage feel to it because everything is always repeating itself. Everybody is always pulling from yesteryear.”
Of course the sunglass beauty says she owns “hundreds.”
