BeyoncéBeyoncé quite simply stole the show at the Grammys with her golden glow. Who doesn’t want to radiate like Queen Bey?! We’ve been given the insider secrets straight from Beyoncé’s makeup artist for the night, Sir John. “She already has that pregnancy glow, but we wanted to enhance that even more,” he explains. Here’s how:

1 “Empty some body lotion into a paper cup and squirt a bit of the gold and rose gold illuminators in there,” he says. TRY NYX Liquid Illuminator (R145) and Flormar Terracotta Blush-On (R269).

2 “Mix it up with a plastic knife and smear that all over your body, then wait a few minutes for it to dry,” he adds. “Once it does, it becomes practically transfer-resistant.”

3 Add a shimmery bronze lip gloss like L’Oréal Infallible Mega Gloss in 507 Resist Me (R159.95) “I like to line the lips with a liquid matte formula because it lasts longer than lip liner,” he explains.
