Drew Barrymore says brides should look naturally beautiful on their wedding day.

Speaking to People magazine, the 39-year-old actress said: “That day is so surreal and important and long-lasting for people, I think the biggest mistake you can make is to overdo it.”

She explained that women will regret their big day’s make-up and hair choices years after the special day if they over-do it and end up not looking like themselves.

“Look like yourself on your wedding day – don’t go with crazy spiral curls and some heavy foundation and look back at that picture and be like, ‘Whoa, that doesn’t look like me.’ It should be you but the most enhanced, beautiful natural version of yourself.”

Thinking of experimenting with different styles and colours on your wedding day? Drew is against this and insists they should tone down the “cuckoo factor”.

She said: “I appreciate some women who are like, ‘I really want to change my hair colour for that day,’ but it’s not the time to play around.

“If you are thinking of doing something bold like a nail, pick a shade that has powders and greys and neutrals in it so it tones down the ‘cuckoo factor.’ I think wedding days and ‘cuckoo factor’ are not a good combination.”

Drew contemplated having “dark lips” when she wed Will Kopelman in 2012 and is glad she decided against it in the end.

She added: “I tried to do a dark lip on my own wedding day, and I just wasn’t feeling it. I went very natural. It took me 10 minutes to do my hair and I wore very little make-up, and I’m glad I did. I’m all for bold, but I just find that’s not the day for it.”
