Barrymore celebrated her 40th birthday over the weekend with a makeup-free, wet hair snap of herself relaxing on the beach captioned, “#forty.” Her best accessory? That huge smile.

And while the the mom of two young daughters doesn’t feel the need to go glam all the time, she told PEOPLE recently that when it comes to date nights with her husband Will Kopelman, she wants to enjoy the process of putting on her makeup and getting ready.

“My entire life I show up to everything with my husband last minute — makeup on in the car, throwing my shoes on, and it would be so nice to show up having giving myself a moment and focused on feeling sexy,” she shared. “I don’t think I’ve worn eye makeup in like two or three years since having kids. You throw on a lip, and you’re like, ‘I did something.’ ”
