When I started wearing makeup my mothers advice was simple: “Makeup is meant to accentuate your beauty, not create it.” It wouldn’t be far fetched if Mama Tina offered similar advice to her naturally beautiful daughter. Beyoncé, in her new found maternal glory has chosen to forgo the heavy makeup and step out with a fresh face.
Whether it’s a bare face or minimal makeup, Baddie Bey looks flawless at all times and you can too with these refreshing products.

Product: Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm
Why it’s Beyoncé Approved: Unlike a heavy foundation, this beauty balm has no oil and no tint. The revolutionary formula hydrates skin and blurs imperfections leaving you with radiant and refreshed skin.
How to: Work the Naked Balm onto your face with a buffing brush or your own fingers. Run the product along the eyelid to perfect the whole face.
Product: Anastasia Brow Wiz Skinny Pencil
Why it’s Beyoncé Approved: Since Bey has full, youthful brows her high arch is sexy instead of severe. The tiny pencil tip allows you to create sculpted brows without heavy powders.
How To: Alternate between the pencil tip and the spooli using short, light strokes until you achieve full eyebrows.
Product: Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy
Why it’s Beyoncé approved: A cheek stain gives a ‘lit from within look’ without cakey powders. The secret to Bey’s radiant face is a natural flush. Fake it with a cheek stain.
How to: Tap the stain onto your cheeks with fingertips until fully blended.
Why it’s Beyoncé approved: King B’s lips are lustrous without gooey gloss. Revlon’s lip stain glides on like a balm, stains like a lipstick and shines like a gloss. Get weightless, kissable color with a vibrant pink stain that you won’t have to re-apply for hours.
How to: Exfoliate lips with a refreshing scrub and run Revlon’s lip stain along the lips.
Product: Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara
Why it’s Beyoncé Approved: Mally Roncal is one of Beyoncé’s trusted makeup artists. Her award winning mascara has a cult-like following. This mascara gives just the right amount of volume without the dreaded clumps.
