It's a fact - Drew Barrymore hasn't aged a single day since 1996.

The 41-year-old actress stepped out at the Once Upon A Time gala in Los Angeles on Sunday, yet despite a change in hair colour, not much has changed about her appearance compared to 20 years ago.

The 50 First Dates star wore minimal makeup, an off-the-shoulder dress and tied her hair into a loose side plait for the event, leaving us wondering what anti-aging sorcery she uses.

Barrymore, who has two children, Olive (four) and Frankie (two), is a huge advocate of cleansing her face twice daily and always removing makeup.

"Wash your face morning, noon, and night – most especially after those long nights. Fall asleep with your make-up on and you'll wake up doomed is my philosophy," she previously told Marie Claire.

She also does her own at-home facials, and lists Glamglow as one of her favourite skincare brands.

"I don't have time to get facials, so I love a weekly superintense hydrating mask that I can do at home. Glamglow is incredible," she revealed to The Outfit.

To get that glowing-from-within effect, the Golden Globe-winning actress swears by applying highlighter in all of the right places.

"I swear by highlighter, but don't put it on over your blush - it'll look murky. Instead, pat it just on the tops of your cheekbones, then add a little on the slope of your nose, across your forehead, and a dot on the bow of your lips, then feather out all the edges. It really changes the way your make-up looks," she said in an interview with Redbook.

However, the mum-of-two told Into The Gloss that her best beauty trick isn't a product you can buy.

"I believe so much in being nice and being happy. When you put something good into the air, the sheer positivity is the glow that outshines any make-up."
