The Super Bowl is such a big performance that a makeup look can’t be put together at the last minute. Sir John did Beyonce’s look and it was planned to a T. He dishes on the look — copy her exact makeup below!
Beyonce, 34, looked beyond flawless and fierce for her Super Bowl halftime performance and the after party, where she wore a sexy orange dress. Find out how to get her stunning, shimmering makeup below.
“We’ve been prepping this for a while,” makeup artist Sir John told Lipstick.com. “At first I was thinking of doing a cat eye, but I wasn’t crazy about how it looked on the cameras; so I completely abandoned ship and went with something else.” The end look was a “juicy, honey-kissed” face, with metallic accents.
“At night, cameras dance off your complexion in a completely different way. You can go for more of a glam look or a smoky effect. I wanted her to have pop. We’re bringing a little disco into the daytime.”

Here’s what to do. To get a flawless face, Sir John used a clay mask one day before the big show. Then he used a few drops of rose oil to give her skin a glow. “I like to use rose oil because it hydrates, but it’s also really repairing. I sometimes mix it with a bit of water in an atomizer and use it as a mist. It preps your skin for moisturizer or makeup primer.”
Instead of a full coverage foundation, he used a light layer of liquid matte foundation. “I wanted to keep it as sheer as possible. It’s not a two-hour show, so it’s okay to do more of a fresh look. Plus, her skin is in top shape, so she doesn’t need a lot.”

For her cheeks, he used “a cool, taupe-toned contouring powder to accentuate her cheekbones, a warm bronzer on the apples of her cheeks, and a bit of peachy gold blush,” says Lipstick.com. Sir John says: “Everything is super warm, except the taupe I used to contour.”
For her shimmering eyes, he sculpted her crease with a matte brown powder. For her lids, he mixed a rust-toned powder and a copper shimmer for the daytime disco look. “I like to start with matte first — it’s something to lay the pigment on. And the contrast of matte next to metallic is really nice.” He used a brown liner and black mascara on the top and bottom lashes.
To keep her lips soft, he used a warm nude lipstick and pressed a little metallic copper pigment on top for a hint of shine. “I wanted the colors to feel a bit cyber.”
