Drew Barrymore launches make-up tutorials

Drew Barrymore has launched a new social media program to share her beauty tips with fans.

The actress launched her own cosmetics line Flower for American chain store Walmart earlier this year.

To coincide with the products on sale, Drew has started a social media program called #TipTuesday. On the website Drew will answer beauty questions which are asked through Facebook and Twitter.

The weekly short films began yesterday with Drew sharing her advice on how to get the perfect spider lash look.

The mother-of-one appears dressed in a pretty purple blouse, looking fresh faced and rosy cheeked.

"My recommendation [for the perfect spider lash look] is to take our Ultimate Mascara, which has the only technology you can find at Walmart thanks to our brush. Take the brush, which crunches all the way down to grab the base of the lash, then drag it across the lash to thicken it and pull to lengthen. Then comb it through to ensure you get no clumps," Drew advised. "Then what I like to do is take the mascara brush and clean the tip slightly, then I dot it along the bottom lash line and blend it in with my fingers to give a more lush and creamy liner look. It gives your lashes a more fuller look than you'll ever achieve by dragging the wand alone on the lashes. That's one way to achieve a spidery eyelash look and then you are ready for a night out on the town! I hope you enjoy."

Along with her insider make-up secrets, Drew will give away 50 of the items she promotes in the web series every Friday on Twitter.

The actress previously explained more about her beauty philosophy to Us Weekly.

"I think the only rules about make-up is not to be shy," she explained. "Happiness is the best make-up. That's what comes out through the pores. That's what shines through the thickest pigment. Happiness is everything."
