Beyonce 'Mine' inspired makeup look

Whenever I mention that I am not really a Beyonce (or Rihanna) fan, I actually get abuse on Twitter, which I find absolutely hilarious :) We all have different tastes and values, right? I respect someone's opinion, so they should respect mine. Anyway... When lovely Danielle mentioned a makeup look Beyonce wore in her 'Mine' video, I really liked the sound of it, so I watched the video and decided to give the eye makeup a try. It is not exactly the same and the shades used on her look totally different against my skin tone, but I used similar colours and I quite like how it turned out. The only palette I used for this eye makeup look is Urban Decay Vice 2, plus bright blue eye pencil, mascara, liner and falsies.

1. I used a blue eye pencil allover the lid (mine is from Eye Of Horus in a shade called Teal Malachite) and blended it out slightly with my finger.

2. I applied a mixture of Madness and Prank from my Vice 2 palette onto the inner and outer corners of my eyelids, blending them out lightly, with Zoeva 234 shader brush.

3. I added Damaged (green shade) under the bottom lashline and blended it out with my Zoeva 234.

4. In the crease, I used shades Rewind and Betrayal to add a little bit of purple and brown. I wasn't sure what colours to pick to be honest, but they worked really well. I blended them out with MAC 217.

5.  To finish off the blending, I used Dope (light beige) under the brow bone and blended out the crease colours with it as well.

6. To brighten the center of the lid, I added Shellshock in the middle. It's a super pigmented silver shade with a lot of shimmer.

7. I also added a very thin line of black liquid liner to make my lashes appear thicker, a little bit of mascara and a pair of falsies (Ardell Demi Wispies) to add more drama :)

I can't remember what foundation I was wearing that day, but I am wearing Clarins Natural Lip Perfector in shade Candy Shimmer on my lips and Zoeva Luxe Color Blush in shade Last Love on my cheeks. Oh, I also used a beige liner in the lower waterline, but  you can hardly see it.

Here is the original look Beyonce wore in the video:

Would you wear this makeup look? I wore it last weekend and loved it. It is actually wearable :)



  1. This looks gorgeous on you! Really really nice. I'm not really a Beyoncé fan either, she's alrightt, but she does know how to rock some looks! xx

  2. Stunning, I love how Shellshock makes it pop and almost gives it a high shine look xx

  3. This is a gorgeous look, you look amazing! If I had more confidence in my makeup abilities I'd totally rock this look every day!

  14. Definitely prefer your version, stunning, really emphasises your eyes :) Youv'e blended them seamlessly, its gorgeous xx


  15. I don't know if I could pull off this look with my skin tone (I'm much paler) so the blues would probably have to be toned down. However, this post has got me thinking it's time to break out my vice 2 palette again! Thanks for sharing this look--it's gorgeous on you!
