Beyoncé’s makeup artist Sir John reveals his best beauty tips
Sir John has been working with Beyoncé since 2010. His A-list clients don’t stop there, though! Sir has also worked with the likes of Karlie Kloss, Priyanka Chopra, Ashley Graham and Kim Kardashian.
Sir has been been dropping some stellar makeup tips lately. Here are some of the best:
1. Statement lips are always a good choice
TshisaLIVE asked Sir if Beyoncé has a trusted makeup look. The answer: a bold lip.
“What she’ll do if she has like 30 seconds, is take a lip liner and colour her whole lip in, and then put a matte lip on top. And it becomes so impactful. And no foundation. No concealer. No mascara. And her hair in like a messy bun. And that’s modern. That's the future if you think about it. Just the bold lip and nothing else,” he told TshisaLIVE.
2. Pick the right red lipstick
Sir recommends choosing an orange-based red lipstick if you want to make your skin look healthier and have your tan come alive. If you want your teeth to look a little whiter, a blue-based red can brighten your smile.
3. Stop your eyes from being weighed down
Sir suggests that if you’re on the mature side, you should lean towards under-eye smudges. Don’t put any shadow or liner on the eyelids, just smoke shadow out from the bottom lash line and add tonnes of mascara. This way, you'll get a smoky-eye without weighing the eyes down.

4. Beauty starts on the inside
Sir believes in healthy diet to get glowing skin and tells his clients to drink carrot juice the night before a big event.
