How to Do Your Makeup like Beyonce

Learn how to do your makeup like Beyonce from professional makeup artist Nicole Williams in this Howcast makeup tutorial.


So, now we're going to jump into the Beyoncé look. I want to make Sara look like Beyoncé. And, it's already pretty much in the direction of where I want to go, as far as the eyes are concerned.

So, we're going to just pick up with adding more to this eye. So, she already has really great skin. We already applied the L'Oreal True Match, which, is, of course from, you now, she's a spokes girl. So, we're doing the right thing by just making sure that we use the products that she actually uses.

So, in order to give Sara that Beyoncé glow that she has her skin all the time, I'm going to add a little bit of Nars Body Glow. And, mix it with the power from OCC. A loose pigment. Just bronze the skin a little bit.

But, it has to be natural. She never looks like it's done purposely. She's always on stage. So, you know she's going to have a little bit more of a contour.

So, I went on the cheekbone with something a little warmer. Just a little bit more of a brown.

So, let's start with her brows. Her brows are always really heavy and beautiful. But, they look natural. So, we're not going to draw on too much color, but we are going to add some color.

Lightly sketching in little, small strokes in the brow. And, what this does, it gives me an idea of where I want to go with this. I want it to look natural. And, sometimes you have to take your time.

So, Beyoncé has thicker, fuller brows, so, than Sara. So, we're going to go in here and make them appear a little fuller. And, all I'm doing is taking an angle brush and just pulling that color through. Making the brow appear a little fuller.

Okay. So, now we're going to go in. Her brows are full and beautiful and Beyoncé-like.

And, now we're going to go into the eye shadow now. And this is really important because her eye shadow always looks really pretty. Golden. Just beautiful.

She always has a really, full, colored eyes. So, it's usually, the color's all across the lid. So, we're just going to add to this. Pulling that color from the outer lid so that. And these are the L'Oreal Infallible Eye shadows and they are just stunning.

Okay. So, now we're going to go in with the liner, right on the top lid. And, kind of feather in a little bit. Because, we want to give a real dramatic crease color.

And, you just want to make sure you have a really straight edge at the end of the tip of this application. And then, we're just going to add bronze to this.

This color's called Dope. Because it is dope.

And now we're just going to go in, give the crease, just blend the crease a little bit so it looks a little bit softer.

So, we going to go under the eye and underline with the Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner from L'Oreal. Because, I want that intensity underneath the eye.

And, you're going to do it in the brown. And then, take your pencil brush and just smudge that. Kind of exaggerated eyeliner.

And now, take that a little bit of Dope, OCC and pop it right on top of the brown eyeliner. Right in the middle.

And, now we're just going to add lashes. Because, every super star has lashes. Has too. They're doing red carpet and they have to look fabulous. And so do you.

And here's a trick to applying lashes if you're having a hard time. Put on mascara, let it harden. Sit the lashes on your own natural lashes with the mascara on. Let it fall and then push it into place. It's an easy way to apply lashes.

And now, let's move on to lips. So, Beyonce's lips always look really natural and pretty. So, we're going to use a little lip tar and a little bit of Smash box Limitless Gloss on top.

Just something brown and warm. Because the eyes are so dramatic, we're going to do something soft on the lip. And, take a lip pencil.

And, now we're going to just add a little bit of a pink blush. Just to give the cheeks a little blush.

Now we're going to set everything with a little bit of a loose power.

And, there you have it. Now she's ready for the red carpet.
