If there’s anything we know about Beyoncé, it’s that the woman works hard, can belt out a note or two, can shake a tail feather, and will always, ALWAYS give fierce face. This is why we’ve been walking around all giddy since her Mrs. Carter Tour makeup artist Sir John (he’s the artist behind so many of our favorite high fashion and celebrity makeup looks) has taken to Bey’s blog and shared some of the inspiration behind the looks he created for the megastar. Needless to say, we will be copying.

Some of the references? Film noir, 60s London, cyber beauty, cosmic constellations, and felines. Can we say epic cat eye? We’re also loving the cute Diahann Carroll crease and matte lip.

To steal Bey’s cat eye, use an inky black liquid liner like NYX The Curve, which, by virtue of its design, makes creating liner looks foolproof.


For the mod cut-crease eye look, we love this tutorial by Pixiwoo:
