When the man who's in charge of making sure Beyoncé #wokeuplikethis gives you beauty tips, you listen. Let's be real, he could tell us that walking around with a paper bag over our head is the way to go and it would probably seem like a good idea. Luckily, there were no paper bags involved when we got the scoop on how to perfect a bright, warm-weather look from famed makeup artist Sir John, just dozens of tips and tricks to set you on the way to your Beyonc&eacte;-doppelganger fantasy.
As the temperature rises, the last thing you want is to walk around with a full face of products getting sticky, oily, and drifting all over the place. Avoid overload by using your weakest finger, the right finger, to tap just right amount of concealer onto the undereye area.
Use the best makeup remover (you don't have to buy)
For a bright cateye look, you want those liner wings to be perfect. Instead of shaping up with traditional makeup remover, which can leave smeary residue, Sir John recommends going au naturale with just a touch of saliva (your own, of course) on a point-tipped cotton swab. Just run the swab along the outside of the wing to pull it into a sharp point and straighten out any squiggly spots.
Multi-task your products.
Instead of searching out a matching cream blush, Sir John opts to go the simple route to perfectly flushed cheeks—lazy girls, take note. Press just a dot of non-oily gloss onto cheeks for a sheer wash of color that will compliment bright lips instead of compete.
You didn't think that was all of Sir John's wealth of tips did you? Of course not. Check out the full video below to absorb every last bit of advice (spoilers: you've been putting your lipstick on wrong) so you too can work it like Queen Bey.
