Beyonce "Mrs. Carter Show" Look

Beyonce is hot, hot, HOT right now and I've had many requests by you to do a make-up look inspired by her. I looked around and saw the extravagantly styled ad for her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, with inspiration drawn from Marie Antoinette, or some kind other Romantic period queen. These are some screenshots I took from the ad, which inspired by look.

I did some strong contouring prior to filming with my foundation, then focused on the almost "plastic" looking red, sumptuous lips, and the over-blushed cheeks. The eyes are kept very neutral, with a bit of shimmer and a dose of fluttery lashes. The look is simple but quite striking!

Here's my tutorial:

Face and Cheeks
L'Oreal Visible Lift foundation, Barry M Natural Dazzle bronzer, Inglot blushes 20 and AMC 58

Kryolan Eyeshadow Base, MAC Malt, MAC Copperplate, Ben Nye Toast, Urban Decay Sin, L'Oreal Infallible black gel eyeliner, Maybelline Natural Glaze eyeliner, MAC Handwritten, Quo lashes Nr. 805

Catrice Lipliner "The Roof is on Fire", MAC Red lipstick, Kryolan High Gloss in Vamp

  6. that´s a beautiful look! and you look amazing on it! thanks for sharing!

  7. Maybe it's the pictures but I think you ended up with a more 'true-red' lip color than she has in the shots. Hers have some sort of a brick red shade going on

    Hallo Julia,

    der Look ist total toll :) Ich würde noch gerne wissen, ob du immer noch so begeistert von dem 5 Minute Speed Whitening Gel bist? Benutzt du es noch?
