Get Beyonce's Glow

Did you catch our favorite BG mom-to-be, Beyoncé, on Friday's episode of 20/20? If not, you missed her dishing about how she's curbing her pregnancy cravings and why she's keeping her due date secret. While her growing bump was the focus of the interview, the singer's glowing skin stole the show.

Famed makeup artist, Mally Roncal "beat" Beyoncé's face into perfection with the beauty essentials found in her "My Favorite Things Collection," ($59.50) which will be available December 9th on QVC.


Since Mally is busy building her makeup empire and beautifying R&B beauties like Beyoncé', she can't personally give us that flawless, camera-ready look, but she can share her tips (see below). Plus, all of the products she used are complementary to all skin tones so you can recreate the makeup magic in the comfort of your home.

Check out Mally's simple steps:

Start by using my concealer to brighten under the eyes or any other place that needs help.

Next, use my subtle highlighter and contour powder to really bring out your inner beauty! The highlighter lifts the face and even illuminates the eye area. The contour powder instantly makes you look like you lost five pounds.

For eyes, I opted for my creamy, shimmery eye shadow, bulletproof Eyeliner and my secret: Volumizing Mascara.

To create glossy, Beyoncé worthy lips, I used my High Shine Liquid Lipstick.

ONE LUCKY READER will win the kit ($59.50 value) before its debut. Simply leave a comment telling me if you're going to incorporate shimmer into your holiday looks this season and a winner will be randomly selected and announced on Thursday.

Yes! I will be incorporating lots of shimmer into my holiday looks. I love a little bit of sparkle all year but it's best this time of year.

A shimmery silver skirt (a la Ann Taylor's winter collection) paired with long faux lashes and a black shimmery clutch is all the rage this winter...

Since the Holiday season has started I have been using alot of shimmer as it makes you'r eyes Pop and a bit of highlight on you'r cheek you will have that glowing face just like Beyonce do ;) This season is the Best part of Holidays to give something simple but at the same time a little dramatic to you'r eyes :)

I haven't been wearing too much makeup lately. I probably won't use any shimmer. :(

Love shimmer especially on my cheeks!

Shimmer on your eyes to give that sparkle when you see your loved ones on holiday parties. As Beyonce gives off that glow on her face, I add a highlighting cream on my cheekbones with a rosy bronzer to finish. This helps illuminate my face in any light. :)

I have a shimmering gold sweater that is perfect for holiday season. I love it because it can be worn to work, church or to a holiday party. It's nice but not over the top. It can be dressed up with a skirt or slacks or dressed down (w/a bit of glam) with jeans and boots. I love it!

Farrah said...

I will definitely incorporate shimmer on my eyes this holiday season and as a bronzer along with a few shimmery tops for date night with the hubbie.
