Drew Barrymore Posts Touching Tribute to Mom in Honor of Book Release.

“Today I wrote a book,” the actress captioned the photo. “And as I thank and celebrate many women this week, I must say a huge thank you to my mother. Drew Barrymore’s peachy pink lip colour she showed off at the Miss You Already premiere is the perfect alternative to red this autumn, according to her make-up artist.”We got lucky; we had an electric connection,” Barrymore told PEOPLE Sunday of her costar at the Cinema Society’s New York premiere of the film. “I would sooner be able to fake a romantic relationship on-screen, I could never fake friendship.

The vibrant shade was inspired by Barrymore’s bold, plunging Stella McCartney dress with saturated floral embroidery. “I’ve been working with Drew for 15 years and this is the first time I saw her wear something in that cut,” she says. “I really got inspired by that and said, ‘Let’s just make this fresh and young and bright.'” Working from the old idea that you can have either a bold lip or a bold eye, but not both, Fredriksz then decided to downplay the Charlie’s Angels alum’s eyeshadow. “I didn’t put any hard lines on her eyes,” Fredriksz, who also works with Christina Hendricks, Uma Thurman, and Rashida Jones, tells Us. “I used Flower Shadow Play’s eyeshadow quad in ‘Twilight Moon’ on her eyes with a wet brush, which gives more intensity. Because you don’t have the same kind of doe eyes and things you can pull.” “It’s just an immediate knowledge of each other,” Collette, 42, said, adding, “You just get each other or you don’t, and we lucked out. I am ever so pleased to be here!’ ” Barrymore, now 40, became an emancipated minor by the age of 15 and has been open about her less-than-perfect relationship with her parents.

If you use eyeshadows wet, they smudge out really nicely.” Though Fredriksz knows that some people shy away from bright corals and peaches because they’re worried they’ll get washed out, she confidently says that these colors work on all skin tones. “If you’re going to wear it, wear it bright, not sheer. Thankfully Drew was able to get her life back on track but believes it wouldn’t have happened without those 18 months locked away from the rest of the world. “I realised, honestly, yeah, my mom locked me up in an institution, Boo hoo!” she told Britain’s The Guardian newspaper. “But it did give an amazing discipline. It was really cool.” Barrymore, whose new book Wildflower, a collection of autobiographical essays, is due out Tuesday, told reporters that having complex and steadfast female friendships is crucial to her life. “I think lifelong friendship is celebratory and honest and tumultuous and connected and disconnected,” Barrymore said. “It just goes through everything you go through in life.” For more of our exclusive interview with Barrymore – in which she reveals her own memories of childhood and the happiness she’s found as a wife and mother – pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now

No, the problem here isn’t a dearth of good material but the author’s lack of interest in exploring it. “Wildflower” is relentlessly and blandly upbeat. When I first started having children, people were like, ‘Well, what are you going to tell them about [your upbringing]?’ ” Barrymore said. “And there was always a connotation and insinuation of, ‘You should be ashamed.’ But that’s crazy. [My daughters] are going to know I’m not some holier-than-thou person who doesn’t want them to live. The stark, astonishing facts of Barrymore’s childhood — smoking and drinking, rehab, legally emancipated by the time she was a young teenager — are cursorily mentioned, if at all. But I really love it being all about the kids,” she shares. “Maybe that’s my compensating for not having parents myself or a childhood, but right now, the focus is about how we’re figuring things out as parents.”

I protect flowers,” Barrymore writes, explaining why the childhood loss of a bougainvillea bush lead her to distrust ads for weed-killers and, indeed, the whole notion of pruning. (The symbolism of the lost bougainvillea bush — sudden fame, lost childhood — lies taut and largely unexplored.) “Let us all be wildflowers!” There are chapters about Barrymore’s love for her two daughters and her deep appreciation for her in-laws. There was something very abnormal, and I needed some severe shift.” Drew, 40, had no warning that she was being sent to the facility and only received occasional visits from her mother during her stay. Her father, who struggled with drugs and alcohol and whom Barrymore herself once called “abusive,” is rendered here with a lighter touch, as an eccentric who couldn’t stick around for her childhood because he was a wild “horse” who “couldn’t be pinned down.” “My mother and father were both incapable of being parents, and I don’t fault them for it,” Barrymore writes. “I am lucky that I got dealt some cards that showed me what it’s like to not have family, and I am much luckier to now have the chance to create my own deck!” “Wildflower” is not exactly a memoir, but a series of life stories told out of order, and this disordered chronology and missing context give the reader a sense of backing into the story.

It’s possible Barrymore figured that readers already knew the details of her life from profiles and from an autobiography she published as a teenager in 1990. The actress recounts several long-ago incidents when, following some urgent and primal instinct, she committed acts of pure young-adult recklessness: jumping over the side of that boat and swimming to a rock. But they are also unscripted and unvarnished and somehow free, standing in stark contrast to the picture of herself that Barrymore paints now: a careful mother who dedicates herself to packing lunches with “bento-box-style precision” and is determined to find the silver lining in every situation. “At 19 I had ruined the sacred nature of marriage.
