Beyonce's Makeup Look on 20/20: All the Details
In her 20/20 interview with Katie Couric on Friday, Beyonce addressed all-things baby-related like her pregnancy cravings the fake baby bump rumors. But her bump wasn't why we couldn't stop staring -- it was her flawless, glowing makeup!
Celeb makeup artist Mally Roncal tells Us Weekly about doing the 30-year-old superstar's makeup for the ABC segment
"Beyonce and I both agreed that her look should be soft, pretty, fresh and glowing!” the pro tells Us. “I took inspiration from her natural beauty, that radiates from the inside, out!"
Below, Mally shares the steps for recreating the "Love on Top" singer's look, plus her holiday beauty must-dos below.
Mally used a combination of tan and medium concealer shades to highlight Beyonce’s cheekbones, brow bone, and center of her nose. Next, she applied a liquid foundation, set with a powder foundation. Using a shaping powder, she contoured the hollows of Beyonce's cheeks, temples and jawline to enhance her natural bone structure. Then she took a highlighter and swept it along the top of her cheekbones, down the center of her nose, and on the tip of her chin. For her cheeks, Mally swirled a peachy pink blush on the apples, along the cheekbones and back toward the ears.
Using a trio of shades, Mally took a peach eye shadow and applied it from Beyonce's lash line up to her brow bone. Next she applied a bronze shadow across the lid and along her lower lash line, then used a dark brown shade in the crease. To make her eyes pop even more, Mally went over her lids with a creamy champagne eye shadow stick and put a rich plum into the crease for a little extra definition.
To line her eyes, Mally used a black waterproof eyeliner on both top and lower rims. On just the lower lash line, she applied a rich, gold-flecked brown liner for soft definition. Next, she curled her lashes and applied one coat of waterproof and volumizing mascara to the top and bottom lashes. She finished off the look with a strip of false lashes.
Mally took a deep tan lip pencil and lined all around Beyonce's lips, going just slightly outside of the lip line. "Because this lip liner matched her lip tone exactly, I could exaggerate the lip line and still have it look natural," Mally tells Us. "So instead of defining the cupid's bow, I drew a little line to connect the peaks, giving her lips that amazing, full, bee-stung look!" Mally completed the look with a peachy-nude lipstick.
The dazzling makeup expert tells Us that Beyonce's radiant skin and soft smoky eyes is the perfect look for holiday parties. To ensure that your look remains photo-ready all evening, try out the pro's must-know makeup tips straight from the set.
1. Swap your mascara formula. "A waterproof formula holds the curl better on super straight lashes," says Mally. (Try Mally Volumizing and Waterproof Mascara, $20; mallybeauty.com)
2. Keep shine at bay. "My answer to traditional translucent powder is Mally Evercolor Poreless Face Defender ($40, mallybeauty.com). It gives skin a beautiful satiny-matte finish, and keeps your makeup in place, plus it doesn't look cakey or funky like translucent powder!"
3. Prep your eyes. "My secret for a flawless smoky eye is an eye shadow base, because it creates a smooth, even canvas for the eye shadow to lay on, and insures that the look will last all day without creasing, fading, or traveling. (Try Mally Eye Shadow Base Duo, $25; mallybeauty.com)
