How To Do Your Makeup For Beyonce's Formation Tour If You're A 'Lemonade' Fanatic — VIDEOS
I don't know about you, but I'm still sipping on some Lemonade. Beyonce's latest visual album is nothing if not a musical, visual, and cultural feat, and it's already influencing fashion and beauty beyond the Beehive. Everyone is taking cues from Bey's style and even using her album to inspire their own unique looks. Here's how to do your makeup for Beyonce's Formation Tour if you are as obsessed with Lemonade as I am .
When it comes to inspiration, Lemonade has plenty, especially in the beauty and fashion department. The gorgeous hairstyles are endless, and the Southern Gothic/Antebellum high fashion is runway-worthy. Bey's makeup ranges from gorgeously fresh and natural to inspired, like the Yoruba body art. Plus, the lemon-hued yellow in her dress in "Hold Up" has found its way into color palettes everywhere. So when it comes to the Formation Tour, you have plenty of ways to channel Lemonade in your look.
Bold, feminine, and a mix of sweet and sour is all you need to inspire your own Lemonade-like makeup look. Of course, you can show some solidarity for the Queen B by incorporating yellow into your makeup. It sounds like a little much, but this color is surprisingly flattering and versatile. Plus, brands have released a wave of yellow products to use from liquid lips and eyeliner to eyeshadows and beyond.
If you're headed to one of Bey's shows and want to show your love for Lemonade with your makeup, here are some ideas.
