Get Beyonce`s Sultry Makeup Look!

We break down the look, step by step, so that you will have no problem looking like a sultry diva.!

This show stopping diva’s makeup is always a hit. Beyonce highlights her best feature, her eyes, with smoky, seductive shadows for a look that is both pretty and beguiling. Want to look like a diva? Check out these tips and tricks.

Start by concealing any dark circles and blemishes. Use a concealer brush to blend concealer under your eyes, and anywhere else there is redness. For blemishes, try a concealer with a thicker consistency and dab it directly onto the spot with a small brush. Blend the concealer out with your fingers or a cotton swab. Set with loose powder.

Make your eyes pop with purple eye shadow. Try to find a palette of purples that will compliment your skin tone. For warm skin tones, look for warm, red-based purples; cool skins should look for blue-based purples. Apply a darker purple shade close to the lash line and blend it up towards the crease. Use a medium shade of purple blended into the darker shade and up to just past the crease.

For added drama, line the top and bottom lash lines with black liner. For a softer look, try using a black eye shadow applied with an angled liner brush. Apply several coats of black mascara to the lashes.
To properly apply mascara, first wipe off the mascara wand with a tissue to avoid clumping. Roll out the wand on your lashes from the base to the ends. Allow to dry for 30 seconds between coats.
Tip: Always curl lashes before putting on mascara.

When sporting a dramatic eye look, keep the rest of your makeup simple. A neutral blush and a nude lip is all you need to complete this look.
