What happens when you have a new baby around the time you're promoting your new makeup line? If you're smart, you do a bit of cross-promotion, or cross-promosh, as the experts call it. Which is exactly what our favourite flower child/ canny businesswoman is doing in the March issue of US Harper's Bazaar. A little bit of Olive and feeling like an 'ordinary', relatable woman for us and a little bit of the makeup company, (Flower) for her. Here are the highlights.

On keeping her daughter Olive‘s birth a secret: “I definitely needed some time. For a solid six weeks, I was hiding like the Unabomber. Because I live my life in the public eye, I didn’t want that for her…unless I move into a bunker underground, I don’t have a choice in this matter. It was something that took me weeks to cope with. I appreciate my journey, but I don’t want that for my kid. Not any of it. It has nothing to do with whether I liked my childhood. I really did. But as a parent, that isn’t the childhood that I’d provide.”

On what she did while she was pregnant:“I didn’t feel I could do a lot with fashion because I wear sweatpants that I find on the floor. I live for makeup and I like wine. These are my truths!”

 Guys, we hereby announce that we're stealing the phrase "these are my truths."

On approaching her makeup line, Flower:
 “Nobody’s in gold rain or running through a jungle with their lipstick on. It was just me and some great music on a white background. That’s every girl, in her closet getting ready.”
