Beauty Cues: Never Miss A Beat This Summer

Beyonce sure has a lot going on lately (and, um, all the time): a massive tour, a controversial trip to Cuba, a rumored second pregnancy… But regardless of how much Queen Bey has on her plate, she never misses a beat when it comes to looking flawless, whether she’s rolling in to a Nets game or a red carpet event. Mrs. Carter’s flame-embellished gown at the Met Ball was a polarizing choice, but her makeup for the evening? Universally gorgeous. A few tips and tricks, after the jump…

  • Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Stingray: This creamy black liner goes on smooth — but more importantly, it stays on, even in the moist waterline area. Line the inner lashline all the way, on both top and bottom, for definition, laying it on thicker at the outer corners and blending outward. [$20, Stila]
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner With Double-Ended Brush: Finally, a potted eyeliner that comes with a brush that’s actually functional! Use the wide shadow end to apply color to the upper lid, working it in with the smudgy black liner at the outer corners for a gradated effect. Use the thin liner end to run the color along the lower lashline, focusing on the outer three quarters of the eye. [$24, Tarte Cosmetics]
  • Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream in Mudslide: Slick on this tingly, mint-scented lip plumper for plush, glossy pink lips just like Bey’s. Brace yourself for countless compliments. [$19, Sephora]
