Beyonce loves the 80′s or maybe just her grandma’s lipstick.

“Beyonce’s dipping her little toe in the 80′s,” Us Weekly’s Freedman says of this shot from the singer’s April 2 Today Show appearance. “There’s some makeup that’s great photo shoot makeup, where you can control the light and get a little funky,” Freedman reasons, “But some things just aren’t red carpet friendly.” Case in point is the performer’s lipstick color du jour. “A blue-based pink lipstick isn’t flattering, he says. “You want the face to look beautiful and balanced. [Something] people look at and say, ‘oh wow, that’s cute, maybe I should try that’ rather than ‘oh my gosh!’ There’s a fine line.”
