Drew Barrymore is the new face of Cover Girl cosmetics.

The actress said she was thrilled to have been chosen by the company, particularly since she idolised previous Cover Girls when she was younger.

Drew acted as co-producer on the advertising campaign consulting on lighting and styling for the photographs which were shot earlier this week.

She said:” I leave the make-up and product up to them, that's their expertise.”

“What I want to do is honour the tradition of Cover Girl but hopefully bring myself and my personality into it, as well as some edgy fashion-forward thinking and positively to it.”

Esi Eggleston Bracey, vice president and general manager of Cover Girl told the press conference:” 'We partnered with Drew because she emulates the iconic image of Cover Girl with her fresh, natural beauty and energetic yet authentic spirit.”
