Is it just me, or does it feel like Drew Barrymore has been all over the Instagram and YouTube promoting Flower Beauty of late? I'm not complaining - I love me some Drew, and I'm gagging to get my hands on Flower Beauty. Part of this onslaught of promotion saw her spend time with YouTube beauty influencers, including the fabulous NikkieTutorials. Nikkie and Drew sat down to recreate Nikkie's famous 'Power of Makeup' video, and OMG, it was legit a fantsatic watch. The chemistry these two have? Off the charts. So what were the top five moments of this vid that made it so watchable (and utterly rewatchable!)? Check these out...
The way Nikkie looks at Drew.
This is Drew Barrymore, people. Icon! The woman is amazing. She's gone through so much, survived so much, and has come out the other end a fantastic human being, and one who despite having the world at her fingertips is still so real and goofy and nice and fun and driven and talented... and yup, I'd be looking at her like that too!
The way Drew looks at Nikkie.
It's clear the mutual appreciation is real. Not only that, Drew calls Nikkie 'the Meryl Streep, the Elvis, the Queen' of makeup. That's not something you'd say lightly to another person. And we're not in disagreement. Nikkie is next level, the real deal, and if we were sitting next to her we'd be giving her awe-filled glances too.
The fun they have together.
There was no holding back with these too. Their time together was hilarious! We learnt that when Drew gets excited she barks like a dog or meows like a cat. We discovered that Nikkie isn't just tall, she's super tall - and they weren't afraid to laugh about their height difference. We had to Google their heights because we were sure Drew wasn't the tiniest person in the world - turns out Drew is a respectable 1.63m and Nikkie is 1.89m. We now want to see the shorty of BR (aka the Pixie) next to Nikkie. She'd be lucky to come up to her waist.
How happy Nikkie made Drew.
Look at that face! Look at it! Drew looks amazing on either side, but the woman loves makeup. She loves what it can do, how it can make you feel. Her joy is real, and we love that Nikkie gave her a case of the squees.
This is #friendgoals.
This is the friend pairing we didn't know we needed. They laugh. They get deep. They just have this vibe that makes you want to believe it's more than just a PR activity. We hope this isn't the last time we see these two get together and collab, because they're awesome together.
