50s Rockabilly/ Beyonce Tutorial

Saturday, May 8, 2010


Some of you may understand my distaste for Beyonce and her image, I do however appreciate her makeup artist lol. The looks in the video "Why dont you love me are fantastic". I decided to use the pictures above and recreate the look with a tutorial. The pictures are below,

I started off with a clean and moisturised face, concealed any blemishes and applied my foundation and powder. From the pics of Beyonce this look has to have flawless skin.


I then used MAC Eyeshadow in Soba which is a light brown with gold flecks on my entire eyelid. This look has strong eyes and lips so a nude eyeshadow is important.


The key to this look is the strong cats eye. This requires a steady hand. I lined my eye with kohl pencil eyeliner first then used liquid eyeliner over the top. I also lined my waterline with a gold eye pencil and went over it with white eyeshadow. This makes the eyes brighter.


You also have to make sure that your brows are flawless and filled in. I then used MAC Bronzer on my cheeks and forehead to give me that Beyonce glow.


I adore the classic red lip and I love wearing it as well. I used two lipsticks to get my shade of red. With a red lip you have to make sure you apply lipbalm or good ol vaseline before. Its also advisable to give your lips a scrubbing with a plain toohtbrush or with what I use...an olive oil and sugar scrub.
This seems to be my signature pose lol


In the next post, I shall do some cam whoring and show you the different lips you can have with a classic cats eye.

Love it. Try a gel liner to get the exact look. Lipliner will get you that staying power and smoothness.
