Beyoncé is back on tour, and word on the street is that she's already killing her 41-stop Formation World Tour, which kicked off in Miami, FL. But that's probably comes as no surprise. Was is surprising, though, is the makeup she wore to perform her first show, which consisted of a fresh face, nude lip gloss, and — wait for it — blue eyeliner. Yes, Beyoncé wore blue eyeliner at her Formation World Tour opening, and even though it was a surprising, bold choice for the artist, she still looked absolutely stunning.
Beyoncé is so gorgeous, she looks just as amazing without any makeup at all. But when she does rock some products, she most often sticks to basics like black winged or smudged eyeliner, neutral eye shadow, and nude lip colors. Hardly ever does she opt for unconventional colors in any of her makeup. Which is exactly why her choice to wear blue eyeliner at the first stop of the Formation World Tour is so shocking.
Yes, Queen Bey can wear whatever she wants and look good in it no matter what. But there's no doubt that the bright blue eyeliner was an unexpected choice for Beyoncé, who normally keeps her makeup pretty and neutral rather than bright and bold. But enough yapping, let's take a peek at a few photos of this makeup from the show last night.
The bright blue liner brought her eyes to life, and her skin looked like it was glowing — even if that glow was mainly sweat from dancing and singing under hot stage lights. Complete with a smooth foundation, highlight/contour, and some nude gloss, the look was beyond pretty. What inspired Beyoncé to try something so bold for the beginning of her tour? Maybe an ode to her daughter, Blue Ivy? Or perhaps it matches one of her tour ensembles? Or maybe she just liked the look?
