Drew Barrymore surprises UA students in Fayetteville


It’s not every day that actress Drew Barrymore shows up at your house to promote her new cosmetic and eyewear lines.

But that’s exactly what happened this week at the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority on the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville.

Barrymore popped in to the sorority house on Tuesday with makeup and sunglasses samples from her Flower Beauty line.

She visited the campus, likely, because of its proximity to the home offices of Walmart, where her new line of eyewear is currently a top seller.

Barrymore spoke with about a dozen local sorority girls, while answering questions about the line and giving beauty tips.

From the looks of the faces on the girls in the video, the visit came as a total surprise.

A few photos of her visit are below, and there are a few videos to check out at People’s Style Watch blog.
