Makeup artist and facialist Wei Lang recently opened up to NY Mag’s The Cut, that she’s been styling Beyonce’s makeup since early 2012. When she was asked what are some of Beyonce’s beauty must-have’s, Lang replied:
She really does like liners, and she asks for that a lot, and lashes. And I always use mink lashes on her. They look amazing. I use strips by Velour called “Are Those Real?” and I got her really into it, so she buys them by the ton.
Fur lashes?? Really? (PETA’S gonna love that!)
Beyonce’s favorite lashes are 100 percent authentic mink fur. The Toronto based company that makes the lashes brushes the hair from live animals, then sterilizes them to ensure they are hypo-allergenic. At a whopping $59.99 a pair, it’s a very expensive habit!
They’re on sale now for $29.99…. so if you’re interested, go grab a pair!
If you didn’t catch Beyoncé’s look during the Inauguration coverage, we have the lowdown for you! Superstar mogul and fashion and beauty icon, Beyoncé, sang the National Anthem beautifully during the 2013 Inauguration and it was hard not to notice her gorgeous makeup!
Here are some tips to re-create Beyoncé’s look from famed celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal, who worked with her for this special day.
Mally shares her tips and tricks on how to steal this look:
To first set the skin, apply my Perfect Prep Poreless Primer all over the face and my Cancellation Concealer directly underneath the eyes.
To achieve natural-looking coverage, first, apply my Ultimate Performance Liquid Foundation. Next, add a sweep of my NEW Diamond Unpowder that will illuminate the skin followed by brushing on my Effortless Airbrush Highlighterand Blush Duo to the cheeks in order to provide a soft, radiant glow to the skin.
To achieve a rich, smokey eye – try my Evercolor Shadow Stick in Saddle Shimmer. Apply this all over the eyelid and underneath as well. Next, select a few shades from the Mally Beauty In the Buff Palette and sweep that onto the eyelids. Finish the look by applying a small amount of my Age Rebel Shadow Stick in Chocolate Diamond on the bottom lid right under your eyelashes to open up the eye followed by using my Lightwand Eyebrightener to the inner corners to instantly brighten this area. Lastly, to achieve this bold eyeliner at-home, try using the Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Eyeliner in Midnight, layered with the Ultimate Performance Ink Eyeliner (which is exclusive to QVC.com).
Compliment this confident eye by pairing it with a mascara that will enhance the overall look – such as the Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara and/or my NEW Instant Impact Mascara. To create glossy, Beyoncé worthy lips try my High Shine Lip Gloss in Mally’s Look or Mally’s Baby.
And last but not least, before you leave the house, apply the Mally Beauty Face Defender to lock your makeup in place and Perfect Prep Hydrating Under Eye Brightener to make the eyes pop!
Anyone can achieve this easy-to-wear look at home. It works on all ages, skin type and color!

GQ has released some more photos and interview bits from Beyonce’s February cover story. We’ve already seen some of the pictures, and gotten some bits from the interview. Today we’ve got more, and in these quotes, she’s talking about giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy. Here are some more outtakes from the interview:
On her chemistry with husband Jay-Z: “I was independent before I met my husband, and we have such a natural chemistry and a genuine relationship, and it’s based on the things that relationships are supposed to be based on. I’ve seen, growing up, when a woman or a man in a relationship—it doesn’t matter which one—doesn’t feel confident, they feel a bit trapped. Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.”
On giving birth to Blue Ivy: “When I gave birth, that was the first time I truly let go and surrendered. And it taught me how amazing that feels… Giving birth made me realize the power of being a woman. I have so much more substance in my life. And expressing that excitement and that sensuality and the connection I have with my husband—I’m a lot more comfortable with that now. I actually feel like my child introduced me to myself.”
On rumors she faked her pregnancy: “I felt like I kind of had to protect my mother, because when people made up the silliest rumor about me not really being pregnant. She was there when I went through all of those things. And my sister. They were very, very defensive. It’s not personal to me, and it comes along with the job, but the lack of respect—people will just go too far sometimes.”
On being a Virgo: “Because I’m a Virgo, I will think myself into a crazy frenzy, and I will re-think and re-think and figure out, you know, way too many things.”
I never bought into all the rumors that Beyonce faked her pregnancy. What a stupid and pointless rumor that is. Seriously – who even cares? We all saw pictures of her pregnant belly, and it looked very real.
Here are some more pictures we didn’t see the first time around…

The internet is buzzing today about this picture of a nearly naked Beyonce on the cover of what might be GQ’s February issue.
On the potential cover, the 31-year-old singer is seen showing off her Bootylicious body in a cropped peek-a-boob athletic tee (she’s clearly getting ready for her major Super Bowl performance), red leopard panties with zipper pockets (feisty and functional) and plenty of bling (“All Gold Everything”).
No confirmation yet that this is actually the February cover, but I’m thinking it definitely is!
