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.
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.
