Beyoncé Inspired Makeup: Why Don't You Love Me

Hi everyone,
I thought I'd do a look based on one of the looks Beyoncé wore during the new 'Why Don't You Love Me' music video, from the scenes where she's drinking and crying whilst on the phone in the bedroom.




For some reason my camera made my lid colour look a lot darker than it appeared, making the cut crease look slightly less contrasted. I really wanted to do the tears, I've seen a few youtube tutorials already for this look but none of them included them - and now I know why they were a nightmare to do! I didn't realise the black pigment I used mixed with fix + was iridescent so it has a green duochrome effect, and didn't keep the wet look effect at all. Oh well you live and learn ;)

If anyone's not familiar with the look this is it:

I always screen cap the makeup in music videos to see the makeup from a couple of different angles.

Products Used:
Face:

Maybelline Dream Creamy Foundation - applied with fingers, my MAC 109 has DIED and is shedding everywhere. Not impressed.
MAC Pearl Cream Colour Base
ELF Blush/Bronzing duo - just the bronzer.
Revlon Skinlights Illuminator - the darker golden brown colour used as an all over bronzer, I love this stuff I wish they hadn't discontinued it. I have to buy it on eBay now.
eBay false lashes.

Eyes:
Lid: Sleek Graphite palette - champagne colour + Urban Decay - Half Baked
Highlight: NYX Jumbo Pencil - Milk, Sleek Graphite palette - white.
Cut crease: MAC Brun and Carbon shadows.
Inner corner: NYX Smokey eye palette - off-white colour.
MAC Penultimate Eyeliner - Rapidblack
Lancome black khol liner - sorry the writing has rubbed off
Loreal Super liner - Carbon Black
Brows - MAC Brun

Lips:
Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick - Nicely Nude
Boots Natural Collection lipstick - Apple Blossom
Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lipliner - no idea what name, nude brown colour.
