Beyonce’s MUA spills on how to recreate her stunning Coachella look
Bey was flawless af during Coachella (both weekends), because, of course.
Not only were her outfits on point, her makeup didn’t miss a beat either. With almost two hour long sets both weekends, and no transferring or melting in sight, we just had to know – how tf did Bey’s MUA do it?
We sat down with Sir John, Bey’s trusted MUA, to give us step by step details on how to slay like Bey – including full details on the products he used.

Sir John starts off the look by focusing on her eyes first. For Beyoncé’s shadow, he uses a warm, matte terracotta shadow as the base shade. He then mixes two loose glitters together; one in a copper color and the other in an iridescent purple. He places the mixture on the ball of her eyes.
Next, he lines Bey’s eyes with a black liner on top and a MAC coffee-colored liner on the bottom. He prefers to do this black/brown liner combo because the coffee brown helps to bring in some softness to the eye, whereas black liner on the bottom sometimes weighs the eye down.
For lashes, Sir John grabs a Too Faced Better than Sex dupe, Lash Paradise Washable Mascara by L’Oreal, after he curls her natural lashes.
For her skin, Sir John applies foundation and concealer and then creates a structural look by contouring her cheeks, eye sockets, and jaw line with a Tom Ford Bronzer.
He then applies highlighter to the sides of Beyoncé’s cheeks (but not the front), bridge of her nose (but not the tip), and her cupid’s bow. For the highlight textures, he uses a cream highlight, followed by L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Shimmerista Powder in Sunlight on top.
For lips, Sir John optes for a pinkish-brown lip color that he knew would last throughout her performance. He chose L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Les Chocolat Liquid Lipstick in Dose of Cocoa; first lines the lip and then applies the lip color directly from the tube.
To finish off the look, Sir John applies AllEven Spray Body Makeup all over Beyoncé’s body. The long-lasting formula lasted throughout her multiple wardrobe changes.
