We all want to look like a celebrity. I mean I know I for one, would love it if I got to wake up to a full glam squad to get me ready for work everyday. But alas this beauties pockets are no where near fat enough for that, so I like many of you rely on tips and tricks to upgrade my Makeup Look. Earlier this year Beyonce’s Makeup Artist, Sir John, spilled a whole lot of tea about the Queen Bee’s Coachella look and gave us some bite size nuggets you can actually implement into your beauty routine quite easily. Now while Coachella was a while ago, we thought these were still great tips and you guys deserved to hear about it. 🙂

Beyonce Beauty Tip #1: Prep Your Lips with Eye Cream
“Prep your lips with an eye cream rather than a lip balm,” advises Sir John. Lip balms can change the texture of a matte lipstick, while eye cream stops the pigment from sinking into lip lines, Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Cream from Sunday Riley, which softens skin and hydrates with watermelon rind extract. “After dabbing on the cream, apply lip liner over the entire lip, filling it in,” says Sir John. “To finish the look, layer on a rich, emollient lipstick in a beautiful, highly saturated shade.”the lightweight
Beyonce Beauty Tip #2 : Be Prepared
We each have our holy grail products, don’t forget to pack them in your bag. Now that we’ve had our mommy moment (lol) seriously you don’t want to forget things like q-tips, mascara, moisturizer, and blush. Si John Points out – “Sure, Q-tips are a must, but witch hazel toner wipes are great for getting rid of shine and leftover makeup,” he says. “You can also use a cream blush—I like Stila’s—to give yourself a quick balmy, monochromatic look.” As for mascaras, Sir John swears by Luminess mascara, noting that “the tip of the tiny brush looks like a ladybug, which creates amazing separation, so it’s easy to use on your bottom lashes with precision.” And, as a finishing touch, Sir John says he likes to warm up a few drops of L’Oréal Paris Rosy Tone Cream in his hands, and then “press it in over a finished, fully made-up face for an organic-looking glow.”
Beyonce Beauty Tip #3: Amp Up Those Lips
Stop being safe all the time and try a bold lip. The intense lip color only takes five minutes and can really make you look put together. TIP: Try blue undertone lip colors, as they are universally complementing and make your teen look whiter.
Beyonce Beauty Tip #4: Stop Baking
Baking is heavy and often totally unnecessary step in your beauty routine. If you have dry skin baking your makeup is the absolute devil and should resist the temptation at every turn.
Beyonce Beauty Tip #5: Learn to Layer
We talked about the benefits of layering skin care products in the past if you missed that post you can check it out here! Don’t say I never did anything for you. 🙂 Sir John explains how you can skip the over drying baking process by layering your makeup… How do you do that without looking cakey? If you apply liquid foundation, just seal it with powder; tap on cream blush, then top it with a powder formula; add gel eyeliner, then set it with powder shadow on top. This layering process is like Teflon level staying power for makeup that won’t budge all night. 🙂
