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.”

Punk princess Avril Lavigne went all out for her record release party on April 17.

Avril might have done better with Urban Decay’s Urban Arsenal with wearable colors that will have people looking at you, not cringing at your eye makeup!

What else you need to know:
Fekkai’s three-step Ageless system was specially designed to visibly correct the first signs of fiber aging (e.g., dryness, damage, loss of radiance, uneven texture) while proactively protecting hair from mechanical and environmental “age accelerators” (e.g., color and chemical processing, heat-styling, pollution, UV radiation). With continued use, hair is protected and stays younger-looking longer.
