This weekend, beyonce blessed a select group with their first live concert in more than four years at the opening of Atlantic the Royal Resort in Dubai. The audience was filled with an eclectic mix of stars: Chloë Bailey, Sabrina Elba, Iskra Lawrence and Kendall Jenner all flew in to see Beyoncé perform some of her top hits while overlooking the luxury hotel’s numerous pools. Since Saturday night’s performance, the internet has been buzzing about the fashion – she wore a range of bespoke costumes by Nicolas Jebran, Atelier Zuhra and Frolov. at BeckonHowever, our focus was a little further up.
Makeup artist Rokael Lizama was behind the softly glamorous makeup for this unique evening. He accentuated Beyoncé’s eyes with a champagne shimmer that matched the liquid gold Dolce & Gabbana gown she wore before hitting the red carpet. According to his Instagram profile, Lizama added a bit of drama to the look by using a mix of Lunar Lites and Constellations lashes from his own line, Rokael Beauty. On her lips, Beyoncé wore the pink neutral shade that has become her trademark. The semi-matte formula stayed in place as she sipped water before singing “Ave Maria” and even as her dancers splashed water on her during “Freedom.”
Beyoncé’s hair was the work of Neal Farinah, her longtime hairstylist. The color has been updated, with the highlights around her face appearing slightly lighter than when she last appeared on the red carpet in October. Her brunette base remains the same, but you can see a few copper tones if you zoom in (and of course we did). Beyoncé’s hair color is definitely more brunette than what we saw on the Renaissance Album art and it will likely change again once fans are finally adorned with album visuals.
