6 Beauty Rules I Learned From Beyoncé’s Makeup Artist

Sir John’s philosophy is all about skin care and letting your natural beauty shine through. Here, he shares the six beauty rules he learned from working with Beyoncé.

With many decades in the industry and a client list that includes quite a few big names, he has pretty much seen and done it all when it comes to hair and makeup.

But even someone with as much experience as she has can still learn new tricks—especially when his students follow in his footsteps.

“Beyonce is so beautiful,” he says . “We don’t need me to make her look good—she just needs me not to make any mistakes!” Here are the six tips.

1. Invest in a good skincare routine
“The number one rule of good makeup is great skin,” Sir John says. “If you don’t have time for a lengthy skincare routine in the morning, at least make sure to cleanse, tone and moisturize your face before applying any makeup.”

2. Use primer to create a flawless canvas
“I always start with a primer because it creates a smooth base for your foundation,” Sir John explains. “It’s also great for extending the wear of your makeup and keeping your skin looking shine-free.”
3. Choose the right foundation for your skin type
“If you have dry skin, go for a hydrating foundation like L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup,” Sir John says. “For oily or combination skin, I recommend a matte foundation like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation.”

4. Conceal only where necessary

“I like to use concealer only where I need it, which is usually under the eyes and on any blemishes,” Sir John says. “Be careful not to overdo it – too much concealer can actually make you look older.”

5. Set your makeup with powder

“Powder is essential for setting your makeup and keeping it in place all day long,” Sir John says. “I like to use a translucent powder like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Sweep & Lock Loose Powder.”

6. Add a pop of color with blush or lipstick

“A little bit of color can really brighten up your face,” Sir John says. “I like to add a pink or coral blush to the apples of the cheeks, and finish off with a bold lip color.”
