This video is one of Beyoncé’s most visually appealing videos. She takes inspiration from 80s icon, Robert Palmer’s videos where Amazonian women were dressed in black.

The Makeup

To pull of the red lipstick, you will need to buy a red lipstick shade that suits your colouring. I would recommend MAC and especially Yves Saint Laurent as the latter’s shades of lipstick are bright and intense, which is exactly what we need for this look.


1) Apply some lip balm or Vaseline to your lipts

2) Lightly fill in with a faint red lipliner. Again, MAC is good.

3) You can use a lip brush to apply the lipstick but I think if you apply it from the tube, you will get that glossy look just fine.

And there you have it, the pillar box colour from the Green Light video! Did you like this post? If so, please subscribe to the RSS feed.
