We are all about that hair — and makeup too! Here at Stylish, we’ve never seen a hairstyle or makeup trend we couldn’t talk about for days on end. So we started a podcast to dish on all the latest beauty news, from hits and misses on the red carpet to celebrity hair and makeup gurus’ dos and don’ts. Each week, Us Weekly executive editor of beauty and style Gwen Flamberg talks with some of the best in the biz about what’s new in hair, makeup and style in our Get Tressed With Us podcast.

This week, Gwen and Us Weekly senior reporter Travis Cronin welcomed makeup artist Sir John (the Los Angeles-based beauty guru who prettifies Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, oh, and a lady named Beyonce!) to chat about his just-about-to-launch makeup collection. In honor of the new Lion King movie, his collaboration with Luminess Cosmetics and Disney was inspired by the land, sky and natural flora and fauna of Africa and, of course, by leading lady Beyonce who plays Nala in the remake of the classic story. 

Sir John shared how anyone can get a Beyonce-inspired look using the products, which includes two palettes (his fave is Can’t Wait to be Queen, obviously), three lipsticks, a tinted lip balm and a highlighter. But here is the most exciting news about the line: While products will be available on Saturday, June 15, Us Weekly readers can shop them early, starting at 9pm Friday, June 14 at luminesscosmetics.com/disney! Just use the code UNLK367. 

Listen to the podcast above to learn all about the creation of the collection and how you can use it to get a look like Queen Bey herself!!
