For the Vogue September 2018 issue, Hollywood Beauty Awards' makeup nominee Sir John used Marc Jacobs Beauty to create Beyonce’s ethereal glow.
“Beyonce loves a ‘no-makeup’ makeup look,” Sir John says. “She’s all about being confident in your skin and owning your natural element. This look was all about redefining glamorous as a state of mind. We focused on enhancing her natural brows, skin and structure – and bringing out that inner glow. It’s a #boybeat.”
Sir John believes that you should “always apply foundation on wet, moisturized skin – it’s the best way to lock in your glow.” To prep skin, Sir John used Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer which features five types of coconut to really nourish and hydrate the complexion.
To get that lit-from-within glow, he opted for a bronzey, rose-gold finish with a 2-part highlight; first, he used Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in Fantasy and applied it to the basic highpoints on her face. “Always avoid shimmer on the front of the face. Apply it to your angles for sexiness,” he says. Then, secondly, he used foundation slightly darker than her complexion and mixed it with Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in Fantasy to get a 3D cheek. “It’s all about a glowy contour. Dew Drops are worth their weight in gold. It’s the one thing I have in my bag everywhere – I use it for concerts, for shoots, for tours – I use it religiously.”
And to set the look, Sir John used Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder, which also uses five types of coconut and cocoa butter to create a soft-matte finish that lasts.
