Whether onstage or gracing magazine covers, Beyoncé has mastered the ins and outs of natural, luminous skin. Sir John, her make-up artist, reveals all the secrets to Beyoncé’s perfect “no make-up make-up” look, with an extra added glow.
Sir John’s aim with Beyoncé’s make-up is to redefine glamour with a natural look that focuses on bone structure. This is shown perfectly in Beyoncé’s beauty look on the September 2018 cover of Vogue US.
1. To get the glow – “I always start by applying foundation to moisturized skin.” His favorite product? Marc Jacobs’ Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer
2. To add dimension, he uses Marc Jacobs’ Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in small amounts on the cheekbones and temples, which he mixes with a slightly darker foundation.
3. To finish, he sets the face with Marc Jacobs’ Finish Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder, for a slightly matte finish that lasts all day.
