When Beyoncé dropped her latest self-titled visual album BEYONCÉ on December 13, 2013 with 14 songs and 17 beautiful videos, the make-up world knew that they were just given an entire year’s-worth of make-up inspiration. As if a year’s-worth of inspiration wasn’t enough, Beyoncé will continue to inspire again and again at award shows with live performances, on Instagram, in fashion magazines, etc.
We took her latest make-up look from the Grammy’s and detailed how you might recreate it with MUD.
Beyonce’s look included a full arched brow, sultry warm eyes and an intense lip.
Get the Look with MUD
For the brow, use MUD’s 210 brush and black or rich brown eye pencil. Swipe the brush bristles over the tip of the pencil to load the brush with color. Then, fill in the brow shaping the brow upward. Using this method of application, as opposed to using the pencil directly on the brow, will give you the rich look of a pencil without it looking too intense.
To get Beyoncé’s sultry warm eyes, use MUD’s Apricot for the brow bone, Canyon in the crease and Graphite on the upper and lower lash lines. Smudge the color across your lower lash line so that it’s soft and “smoky” with the 810 Smudger brush. Use MUD’s black eye pencil in the upper and lower water line to define the shape of the eye.
To get an intense red lip, line your lips with MUD’s Mauve lip liner. Then, fill in the center with Ladybug lipstick and blend. The mauve + red will create an intense maroon color. Finally, add a beautiful glow to your cheeks with MUD’s Poppy blush using the 510 Duster brush.
