Beyonce 'Countdown' Look

As many of you will already know, Beyonce has released a new song, 'Countdown'. When I first saw the video for the song, there was one thing I noticed, her makeup. Her makeup is amazing in the video, it's eye-catching, fun and most of all, very Beyonce!
I haven't done a makeup tutorial in a long time so thought I'd do a Beyonce 'Countdown' tutorial. It's very bold and bright so I wouldn't recommend this look to anyone that is a little colour shy.

Here is the look...

Products used to create this look:

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
  • Urban Decay Naked Palette (Eyeshadows used were Sin, Smog and Darkhorse)
  • Sleek Curacao Palette (Eyeshadows used were Screwdriver and Expresso Martini)
  • MAC 'Lucky Green' Eyeshadow
  • MAC 'Rapidblack' Penultimate Eyeliner
  • NYX 'Milk' Jumbo Pencil
  • Next White Glitter Eyeliner
  • Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara

If you would like to create this look all you have to do is follow my nice and easy steps. 
1.) Apply Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion to your eyelids. Blend using your finger. 
2.) Apply 'Screwdriver' to your eyelids using a flat eyeshadow brush. For best results, pat the eyeshadow onto the eyelids. Also create a slight winged effect.
3.) As Beyonce's eyeshadow is more lime than yellow, apply a small amount of 'Lucky Green' over the top of 'Screwdriver'. 
4.) It's time to create the cut crease, to do this you will need to use 'Darkhorse' and a thin eyeliner brush. Carefully create a line in your crease. To soften the line, blend using a tapered eyeshadow brush. 
5.) Mixing a little bit of 'Smog' and 'Darkhorse', blend from the crease to the brow bone. Again you can blend using the same tapered eyeshadow brush. 
6.) To make the eyeshadow appear a little softer, apply a small amount of 'Sin' to the brow bone. This can be done using any small eyeshadow brush. 
7.) Apply a small amount of 'Screwdriver' to the inner corner of the eye using a small eyeshadow brush. 
8.) Using 'Expresso Martini' and a thin brush, apply to the bottom lash line and then create a smudged effect. This can be done using a sponge applicator. 
9.) Lets create a double winged eyeliner effect. Create one wing effect on the top lash line, and another wing effect on the bottom lash line. 
10.) In between both winged effects, add a small amount of white glitter eyeliner. This makes the black eyeliner stand out. 
11.) To finish off the look, apply mascara to your eyelashes and 'Milk' to your waterline. 

I hope you liked this look! If you have any makeup tutorial requests then please comment below!
