If you’re like us, you’ve been counting down the days, minutes, and quite possibly seconds, until the release of Disney’s brand-new rendition of The Lion King. And, the day is finally here! Of course, we can’t wait to see—or rather hear—all of our favorite stars (Donald! Beyoncé!) and sing all of our favorite tunes, but we’ve also harbored deep-seated excitement for Beyonce’s inevitably amazing beauty looks. Because you guys, there’s nothing we love more than Beyoncé on a red carpet.
Since she’s known and worshipped for her stunning hair, makeup, and fashion moments, we knew we’d be in for an assortment of glittering, lioness-inspired treats pre-release, and thus far, the actress and singer hasn’t disappointed. Still reeling in the best way possible from the sleek gilded cat-eye she wore for the film’s London debut, we received the full product and application scoop from her longtime makeup artist, Sir John.
“Attending the L.A. premiere and seeing the CGI for the first time was visually such a treat,” Sir John shared in a press release earlier this week. “Nala’s eyes mesmerized me, and I thought, how can I translate this into wearable glam?! If you noticed, the London premiere was my attempt at harnessing the power and sultry essence of a lioness. Not literal in interpretation, however, there’s an undeniable feline presence.”
Inspired by the star’s stunning marigold-hued gown, Sir John used a strategic array of products from his very own collab—Disney’s The Lion King Limited Edition Collection by Sir John x Luminess.
Ahead, we’re sharing the complete beauty break-down, products and tips included. Keep scrolling!
