Beyonce's Sunkissed September
The September issue is the biggest fashion issue yearly and while we often look forward to the upcoming style trends, who will be covering what publication, and what they will be wearing we overlook beauty trends. This September Beyonce graced the cover of American Vogue and we not only wanted all the details on how this came together and what she wore, but we wanted to know about her flawless skin.
Beyoncé's cover for the September issue of Vogue dropped weeks ago and the Internet hasn't stopped talking about it since. From Beyoncé's creative direction, to Tyler Mitchell the first black photographer to shoot a cover in the publication’s history, and the candid interview that touched on her troubles with her twin pregnancy. She spoke about her long lineage of power struggles with the relationships between the men and women in her family and learning to accept her current body image. Beyonce took the time to open up in what could be seen as her most transparent interview to date. Everything came together to solidify this issue of Vogue in history.
We wanted to know more for one we wanted to know how she could be someone so amazing. Secondly we wanted to know what went into her natural makeup look. She wasn’t overdone nor did her makeup distract us from the overall imagery. Her makeup played its part by being an accent and offering a unique glow. While Beyoncé's glow may have seemed like it was radiating directly from the light inside of her, it was actually Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter that was responsible for her soft-lit sheen. Her makeup artist, Sir John, gave the deets on exactly how to get the Beyonce glow that everyone is talking about.
According to reps for the Marc Jacobs brand, Sir John started off by prepping the cover stars skin with Marc Jacobs's Beauty's Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer which has been crowned as Glamour’s staff favorite. He then used a two-part step to get that precise "bronzey, rose-gold finish": First up, Marc Jacobs Beauty's Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in Fantasy, which he put on the high points of her face. Then, he mixed Marc Jacobs Beauty's Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in Fantasy with foundation slightly darker than her face for what he calls a "3D cheek." "It’s all about a glowy contour. Dew Drops are worth their weight in gold. It’s the one thing I have in my bag everywhere. I use it for concerts, for shoots, for tours—I use it religiously," he has said. Finally, Sir John topped off his gorgeous creation with Marc Jacobs Beauty's Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder.
Beyonce looked absolutely stunning in her Vogue spread and gave us beauty inspiration for the warm days ahead of us in September. If you want to look sun kissed and natural give these products a try you will look effortless and radiant without trying too hard. It looks like we’ll be adding products to try in our bags as well. We definitely look forward to giving those Dew Drops a try!
