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.

Drew Barrymore embraced a “strong but soft” lip at the New York premiere of new movie Miss You Already on Sunday (25Oct15).

The actress wowed on the red carpet in a plunging Stella McCartney gown and loose, tousled hair. Her make-up was flawless and Robin Fredriksz, who has worked with the 40 year old for years, has revealed how she achieved such a beautiful look.

“I wanted to give (her) a strong but soft lip, so I went with Flower's So Gladiola because I wanted to keep it fresh,” she told Us Weekly. "The peachy pink in the colour is a great alternative to red for fall."

Robin took her lead when creating Drew’s make-up look from her dress. The dark blue dress featured floral embroidery and exposed the star’s décolletage and Robin knew the rest of her look had to compliment her ensemble.

“I've been working with Drew for 15 years and this is the first time I saw her wear something in that cut," she added. "I really got inspired by that and said, 'Let's just make this fresh and young and bright.'"

The pair decided to avoid clashing a bold eye with the bold lip colour, so Robin went with a more muted shade of eyeshadow.

“I didn't put any hard lines on her eyes,” she added to the outlet. "I used Flower Shadow Play's eyeshadow quad in Twilight Moon on her eyes with a wet brush, which gives more intensity. If you use eyeshadows wet, they smudge out really nicely."

Robin’s top tip for anyone who wants to recreate the Charlie’s Angels star’s latest look is to match the blusher with the lip colour, as this will help people of any skin tone from looking washed out.

“I shaded (Drew's) cheek bones and put the lip colour on the balls of her cheeks,” she explained. “You can be fair skinned, olive skinned, it doesn't matter. You can wear bright colours. Just throw some mascara on with it, and it will pop."
