Beyoncé’s Split Beauty Personalities
Beyoncé released her surprise, self-titled “visual album” early this morning. In addition to appearances by Jay-Z, Blue Ivy, Drake, Frank Ocean, Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, and Joan Smalls in the seventeen videos, a bevy of looks—including the twenty-four-hour pixie cut that set the social media world on fire, and vampire-style grill that debuted on Instagram—were put on display. (Bey’s recent spout of beauty ADD makes so much more sense now.) Here, we survey some of our favorites:
Either the people at Pantone have psychic abilities or they took cues from Queen Bey when naming Radiant Orchid as the color of the year.
Reminiscent of the hair at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 show, we have a feeling crimps are going to stage a serious comeback.
Two of this past season’s biggest trends in one frame: blue shadow and a loud mouth.
Bold bordeaux lips paired with a matching trench make for a dynamic duo.
From barely there makeup to head-to-toe black body paint, the looks in the video for “Ghost” run the gamut.
Smoky eyes, a berry-colored pout, and marcel waves? Talk about a triple threat.
Angular eyeliner reminiscent of the teal and cobalt slashes seen on Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 runway.
Who doesn’t love a good beauty flashback?
