Drew Barrymore delighted fans with a new photo showcasing her final beauty transformation as Sheila Hammond on Friday, complete with an inspiring message about womanhood and staying true to your dreams. The popular actress, who is currently preparing to reprise the role as Sheila in Netflix comedy-horror show, Santa Clarita Diet, shared her thoughts next to a stunning head-shot. Drew wrote about how the pressures for women, such as balancing working and motherhood, are difficult at times, but that, "Working hard is always worth it." She also advised: "Fake it till you make it."

 

#becomingSheila back in the saddle again. Thank you to all the experts who helped me get here. It's no wonder I don't want to deal with all that being a lady entails sometimes. I'm a mom. I work like crazy. And the first thing to go is usually yourself. I love this job because it forces me to put back into myself, even if it's really for someone else like Sheila. I feel so grateful to have a job I love. I know how lucky I am and I never take it for granted. Period. Becoming her took weeks and weeks. It gets harder the older you get. But working hard is always worth it. Ok. Time to be cool. Because I'm usually not. But she is. So I will be. You know... fake it til you make it. But don't ever stop short!!!!!!! #santaclaritadiet

In the photo, Drew looks radiant with natural make-up. Her complexion was enhanced with a natural foundation and a sweep of peach-hued blusher across her cheeks. Black liquid liner drew attention to her large, green doe eyes, while a berry lipgloss and statement brow completed her look. The mother-of-two's newly-dyed blonde hair was preened to perfection, styled in loose curls and a centre parting.

Drew has been documenting her transformation process throughout the week

Shortly after posting the picture, Drew's fans took to the comments section to praise her on her heartfelt message, one writing: "You are amazing, so beautiful, inside and out, and so REAL!" Another said: "So inspiring, and love the show."

Throughout the week, Drew has been documenting her transformation for her role as Sheila. On Tuesday, she was praised for "keeping it real," with a very relatable, filter-free selfie – grey hair and all. The make-up free picture revealed her untamed eyebrows and messy bed-head hair, and was titled: "OH MY GOD How did I let it get this bad. Base and brows needed. Must become her. #Santaclaritadiet here we go again. Season two."

On Wednesday, meanwhile, Drew enlisted the support of her daughter, four-year-old Olive, with the mother-daughter duo enjoying a trip to the hairdressers. While Drew got her roots touched up, Olive was pictured with miniature foils (minus the dye) in her own hair for "solidarity".
