Here’s how to get Beyonce’s look:

1. Set skin

To first set the skin, apply Perfect Prep Poreless Primer (see where to purchase products below) all over the face and Cancellation Concealer directly underneath the eyes.

2. Illuminate

To achieve natural-looking coverage, first, apply a liquid foundation like Ultimate Performance Liquid Foundation. Next, add a sweep of illuminating powder to the skin that will illuminate the skin followed by brushing on highlighter, like Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo to the cheeks in order to provide a soft, radiant glow to the skin.

3. Go for smoke

To achieve a rich, smoky eye (try Evercolor Shadow Stick in Saddle Shimmer), apply shadow all over the eyelid and underneath as well. Next, select a few shades from nude palate and sweep that onto the eyelids. Finish the look by applying a small amount of Age Rebel Shadow Stick in Chocolate Diamond on the bottom lid right under your eyelashes to open up the eye. Lastly, to achieve this bold eyeliner at-home, try using the Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Eyeliner in Midnight, layered with the Ultimate Performance Ink Eyeliner (which is exclusive to QVC.com).

4. Pump up the volume

Compliment this confident eye by pairing it with a mascara that will enhance the overall look.

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
