‘World Stop’, because today is Beyoncé’s birthday! The face and creator of Ivy Park (I still haven’t got over those stunning photos from the Rodeo collection), winner of 28 Grammys and the fifth most followed woman on Instagram… Queen Bey is having a hell of a year!

Our Fave Beyoncé’s Looks Of 2021!

So, on this special day – her 40th! – we wanted to browse through a selection of our favourite Insta posts from Bey herself. To work out exactly how us Glossies and all of the BeyHive can recreate these incredible looks for ourselves…

One of the birthday girl’s most recent photos racked up a massive four million likes. And I’m not surprised, the photo is stunning! The straight hair, the outfit and the makeup… together they create a bombshell moment!

To recreate this, look no further than Revolution Pro’s Crystal Gloss – Dreamer. One of my current faves, this gloss is infused with sparkling shimmer – and in shade ‘Dreamer’ – a pretty dusky pink nude with glints of gold woven in – it’s a stunning addition to your lip collection. The high shine this gloss will give your pout will make your lips look as juicy as Beyoncé’s Lemonade!

I love that this gloss has a soft doe-foot wand too, as well as the fact it can be worn both on bare lips and over your favourite lipstick to add a glossy sheen.

Beyoncé blew us away a few weeks ago when her Harper’s Bazaar covers graced the internet – and many magazine shelves! This first cover is gorgeous and what I believe perfectly finished off this all-denim look was her spectacular red lip.

You’ll always hear me saying “I slay, hey, I slay, okay”, when I’ve got my best accessory on… a red lip! It really is a perfect addition to any look. Red lipstick isn’t just for a night out. Rock red lippie on a lunch date or at work is fab too. For this you’ll want a lipstick that is long-lasting and is highly pigmented and I say look no further than the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction Lipstick.

Infused with hydrating oils, this is a red lippie that moisturises as well as makes a statement! And this lipstick has a matte finish, just like Bey’s. It’s under £9 and the pigment packs a punch! This is what a “sweet dream” is made of!

Beyoncé’s second cover for Harper’s Bazaar is just as beautiful as the first. She really proves she can pull off any look! And this one is my fave out of the three covers of Harper’s Icon Issue too.

What blew me away most was her gorgeous neutral/brown eyeshadow look. We need to recreate this! How? Well the Barry M Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette – Bare it All can make it happen!

Featuring nine alluring shades, this palette will take you from day to night! You can choose from matte or shimmers to create your look, all made with a creamy, buttery formula! I love that these shades were designed with all skin tones in mind too. My favourite shade in the palette is ‘Golden Hour’. The shimmer is as shiny as Bey’s Grammy’s! I recommend applying these shadows with your finger, over using a brush, as your finger will pick up more pigment. The heat from your hands will also help in blending out the powders.

This July saw Bey show off her curves in an unbelievably, gorgeous photo she posted on Instagram. Wearing a beautiful orange, yellow and aqua blue dress, she got us seriously into the summer mood. Not only did her body and dress stand out to me though, but her makeup was to die for too!

However, her skin..! Glossies, the best way to make your skin look flawless for any makeup look is primer! A blurring, smooth finish primer to be exact!

In my opinion, Smashbox’s Original Photo Finish Foundation Primer is your best choice! It’s the brand’s best-selling, award-winning primer and it’s fabulous for perfecting the appearance of your skin. This primer melts onto the skin, leaving your base smooth and texture free. It’ll blur pores, fine lines and imperfections in one sweep too!

If you suffer with oily skin, you’ll be glad to know it’s an oil free gel too – which enhances the wear and application of your makeup as well. For best results, smooth over clean, cleansed skin and let it set for 15 seconds before applying your foundation.

Earlier this year, Beyoncé released a new collection called Icy Park with adidas. Of course I wanted to buy the whole collection, all in the hope I’d look like Beyoncé wearing them… (a girl can dream right?). And, in her spectacular promo shots, I envied her dramatic eye look

To recreate the amazing look in these shots, you’re going to want an eyeliner that’s long-wearing and rich in pigment. The wet n wild coloricon Kohl Eyeliner Pencil has it all for you, enough to make you say “I’m a Diva”! This eyeliner is raved about by celebs, makeup artists and influencers alike and when I say long wearing I mean 12 hours!

What makes this eyeliner even more incredible though is that it’s only £1.99! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m saying it’s the bargain of the year! To create a modern look like Beyoncé, draw your desired shape on your lash line and then carefully smudge the line with a sponge tip applicator.

You know you’re a Glossy when the first thing you notice in a Beyoncé selfie is her perfect brow! I know we all strive for brow perfection and that’s exactly what our Queen B achieved here in her Insta photo from April. Not only does she rock her face mask, her brow game… It’s flawless! Here, Bey’s brows look soft, natural and fluffy.

The NYX Professional Makeup Fill and Fluff Eyebrow Pomade Pencil is exactly the product you need to recreate Bey’s brows. Our main brow goal is always “pray it won’t fade away” throughout the day – and you won’t have this worry thanks to this product’s high pigment, matte colour. Giving you the freedom to create bold Beyoncé brows, this dual-ended eyebrow pencil has two clever ends. One is a smooth waxy retractable pomade that perfectly fills in any gaps, while the other is a micro-paddle brush which will help blend the pigment and fluff your brow to create volume.

If you ask me, one of the most amazing songs from 2020 was Beyoncé’s suprise charity single, Black Parade. And I wasn’t alone in this opinion, the recording academy agreed, so much so they awarded Bey with Best R&B Performance!

Beyoncé posted a photo of her winning on Instagram soon after, and it racked up over four million likes! But, in this photo, what stood out more than her shiny Grammy award was how perfect her makeup was, even after a busy night out!

If your plans are just as eventful, Rimmel has a perfect product to get your makeup saying “we be all night”. Nicely named #Insta Fix and Go Setting Spray, it’s ideal for setting your makeup in place whatever your plans may involve. The transparent spray gently mists over your face, absorbing quickly to seal makeup in place for up to eight hours!

I know you Glossies love a multi-use product too! So, you’ll adore the fact you can also use this spray as a primer! Just make sure you always hold the bottle eight inches away from your face and that you spray the mist in circular motions, to completely cover your face.

You know how people say putting on your favourite clothes can instantly boost or change your mood? Well that's how I feel when I put on my favourite makeup. Makeup isn't to cover up, it's to show off our personality - and I love how everyone does their makeup in their own unique way! I never leave the house without a tinted lip balm in hand, and just like everyone right now, I love a good dupe!
