Get the Look: Beyonce Knowles
Beyonce always looks sensational. Here’s how to copy her look so that you too can leave the house feeling like a diva
If your hair’s not long enough for this look, you need to get wavy brown hair extensions with golden highlights and create a side-parting. To keep these gorgeous waves looking good, use a leave-in conditioner, then finger-comb to create this sexy, unkempt look that’s big this season.
If you have straight golden-brown hair or extensions, create waves and volume using either large curlers, a styling iron or curling tongs and mousse.
If you have black hair or extensions, get your hair coloured by a reputable colourist who is experienced with highlights.
To keep your hair extensions looking fab, use silicone-based products when styling to give them a healthy shine. Caucasian hair products are best for keeping hair extensions in good condition. You need to shampoo and go for deep-conditioning treatments every two weeks. Make sure your hair is completely dry before attempting to style it. For best results, have your hair shampooed and deep-conditioned at a salon. For wavy/curly styles, avoid using brushes and combs and rather use your fingers to style your hair extensions.
• Face: Apply concealer under the eyes and on any dark marks to create an even complexion. Brush on mineral foundation all over the face for a flawless finish and follow with bronzer on the forehead, cheeks and chin.
• Eyes: Define your eye-brows using a dark brown pencil liner or eyeshadow. Sweep a highlighter in a colour such as gold all over the eye area, and then add a bronze shadow on the crease. Create the trendy cat-eye look using black kohl pencil liner. On the upper lashes, start lining from the inner corners. Start with a thin line, and make it gradually thicker towards the outer corners. On the lower lashes, start the line from the middle of the eye, lining towards the outer corners to meet the upper lash line, creating a subtle cat-eye effect. Coat the lashes with two coats of volumising black mascara.
• Cheeks: Choose an bronze blusher for your cheeks to give your face a stunning glow. We love the new range from Elizabeth Arden – Bronze in Bloom Mineral Cheek colour, R230.
• Lips: Finish off this gorgeous look with a slick of nude or sheer pink gloss. (You could try Smashbox Girls on Film Lip Ehancing Gloss, R150.) For a sexy effect, don’t rub your lips together after applying gloss.?
