Secrets of Beyonce’s makeup for Coachella
This year the singer Beyonce made a real sensation at the Coachella music festival. Dresses for the star was created personally by Olivier Rustin, and the other day the make-up artist of the singer revealed the secrets of creating make-up. In his interview, make-up artist Sir John described how he created the makeup of the star for her performance at the Coachella festival: the perfect shining skin, glitter on the eyelids, lipstick and blush matched in tone – these were the techniques used for the stage image. Meikap-artist shared the secrets of applying products that survived a two-hour marathon on stage and did not disappoint.
“Beyonce wanted to look young and fresh. I decided to create for her the image of a girl from college. Remember the movie “School years” Spike Lee? It was he who became my inspiration, “Sir John said.
The main emphasis in the image of Beyonce was the make-up of eyes with glitter. “I mixed several products with glitter,” John shared, “I used a terracotta base, mixed it with a radiant purple pigment, then added a glitter to the center of the upper eyelid.” Plus, the liner of M.A.C Brownborder took the mascara L’Oreal Paris Lash Paradise. “
The most important question to Sir John is how to make sure that makeup does not float after two hours of performing on stage? “It’s like cardio,” laughs Sir John, “the secret of the meikap’s resilience in layering products.” I used cream products: a liquid foundation, then a dry bronzer, cream blush over which dried rouge was applied, – all remedies must be duplicated, which part of the person you are working with. “
Sir John also worked with the body of the star: in order for the skin tone to be smooth, he used the Alleven Color Shield spray, which is not smeared and not printed on clothes.
“Between the performances, I had only 45 seconds to fix Beyonce’s makeup,” John says, “I constantly needed to hold her head while changing clothes, wetting sweat drops, and at the same time having time to apply powder.” In the process, it’s important to be absolutely calm and completely relax. “
