Drew Barrymore just shared a selfie the internet is calling “brave”.

In a world where Instagram models and celebrities alike post the most refined, glamorous versions of themselves on social media, it is always refreshing to see a celebrity throw a spanner in the works with a make-up free selfie.

Yesterday, 43-year-old actress Drew Barrymore shared an image of her face with only half her makeup done on Instagram sparking floods of positive feedback from her fans.

“I cannot tell you what a big deal this is for me! I love her and when you live in the beauty world, she is a rock star!” she captioned the image.

Barrymore is referring to makeup artist Nikkie de Jager, best known as NikkiTutorials because of her viral work on YouTube and Instagram. She is a Dutch beauty vlogger with more than 10 million Instagram followers.

“Getting to do this with her, where she famously does her half face make up is so cool. And I love her personally. We spent three days together, and had such a nice ease and short hand by the end. And yet it is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. I am so excited to know her and continue to learn from her as well.”

“I mean look at this picture. Nikkie is the power of what beauty is today!” she continued.

Now sweet, kind, commenters of the internet, let us stop you there.

There are many brave things that people do in this world. We’re just not quite sure going (half) makeup free is one of them.

Refreshing and important, yes. Brave? Well, you decide.

 

Just last year, Drew Barrymore shared a very candid makeup free selfie that had everyone cheering.
