Get the Look from Beyoncé's "Blow"

I'm still on my Beyoncé high and, truthfully, I probably will be for the duration of 2014. You've been warned. There's just too much quality to pull from and be inspired by. Next up in my Beyoncé Get the Look queue is the fun '70s blue wash and bold red-orange lip combo from Beyoncé "Blow":

This look was almost too easy, and by almost, I mean it definitely was. But it was requested and I LOVE this video so of course I followed suit. The hardest part was applying false lashes because I am absolutely terrible at it. On my lips I'm wearing Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Big Bang. It feathers pretty badly on me which blows (LOL), but the color is a perfect match to Beyoncé's lip color. To match her powder pink blush, I have on Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush in Melon.

Step 7: Tightline upper lash line with waterproof black eyeliner.

I got caught up with my "styling" for this look BUT I had to channel as many parts of the video as I could. I had to. Too bad I don't own roller skates or a barbed wire choker, otherwise I would have nailed it!

Now go watch the 30 second preview, buy the album, and try Beyoncé's look from "Blow" for yourself!


  1. Another great look! Do you have any special tips for tightlining your top lash line? Every time I try it I end up freaking out and abandoning ship halfway through. LOL

    1. Thank you! God... I normally skip tightlining altogether because I hate it so much. Plus, the old liner I was using gave me milia on my upper lash line whenever I did do it. However, when I don't give myself proper black wings (my security blanket), I feel like I have to thicken up my upper lash line somehow. I just apply short strokes while very lightly pulling my lid upward and pray for the best. I continue to hold my lid so it doesn’t transfer to my lower lash line to let it dry afterward. I find the Jordana eyeliner to work pretty well because it truly glides on like a liquid which means it’s quick and generally painless!

  2. You look gorgeous! I love that you are doing these Beyonce looks. I too am pretty stuck on that album it's amazing! Can't wait for the other looks to come. I especially love her look from Super Power.

    1. Thanks, Gigi! I absolutely love doing them because I'm pretty much obsessed with the album (I'm sure it shows lol). The cat eye in "Superpower" is awesome and definitely on my list, so stay tuned! <3

  3. Great look yet again!!! I love your "get the look" illustrations!!! It's a great idea for teaching where the colors go! :)

    1. Thank you, Jen!! I'm glad you like the illustrations, too. They're a helpful little guide to see what's going on in the actual photos of each look.
