Today I was on WBRE's PA Live talking nail colors…
Beyonce just dropped a secret album!!! This calls for multiple exclamation points because – 1. It’s Beyonce, 2. It was a total secret (likely because she’ll be dropping something BIG in 2014 and this will create crazy buzz – genius!) 3. It’s a visual album. Beyonce has blown my mind yet again.
So seeing as the Queen B doesn’t limit her trendsetting to music, let’s discuss her looks for the visuals and break down the standout trends video by video.
1. Pretty Hurts -Star Style
Beyonce plays a beauty pageant contestant and shines on stage in starts. Get a load of those earrings.
2. Ghost – Natural Beauty
Skin is dewey, brows are full and brushed upward, and bottom lashes look bare.
Trend Hungry Tip: Keep brows looking full and fabulous by drawing short, feather-like strokes with an brow pencil. Here’s a full-brow video tutorial.
You can’t see in this picture, but Beyonce’s outfit is black and white, very sleek. This highly-pigmented lip with nails to match and smokey eyes are the focal point. I predict nails and lips going matchy matchy.
Trend Hungry Tip: Bring attention to your manicure by stacking on midi rings. They draw the eye to your finger tips and make for amazing manicure Instagram pics.
4. Blow – Disco Diva
Beyonce’s beauty style for hanging at roller rink calles for a bold lip and eye. A bright orange lip and blue eyeshadow may seem intimidating, but totally work.
Trend Hungry Tip:Want to rock a bold lip and eye? Go light on blush and tone down eye and lip so that both stand out, but don’t scream drag queen.
5. No Angel- Homegrown Style
Who looks this hot pumping gas?
6. Yonce- Model Behavior
If you’re fashion obsessed then you may recognize a few faces in Beyonce’s Yonce video. Fashionista.com tells us to look out for sightings of “Joan Smalls — wearing a grill and lip-syncing the lyrics — Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman.”
7. Partition- Chandelier Chic
The corset and headgear seem to be decked in crystals, tassels, and jewels. Get a load of how tiny her waist is. Think this will spark corset training to to become more mainstream?
8. Jealous – Extra Accessories
Bracelets and rings add the bling, but what’s really eye catching is that ear cuff. It looks dangerous and it’s a trend that is sure to be popping up much more in 2014.
9. XO – Gypsy Jewels & Peekaboo Bra
Thank you for showing us how to stay stylish while on a roller coaster. Like Beyonce’s mesh bra? It’s only $28. Buy now, as many fans will likely snatch ‘em all up.
10. Flawless -Punk Plaid & Chains
Trend Hungry Tip: Looking for a new way to style a flannel shirt. Button high and wear a short necklace to really make the collar a focal point.
And if you’re digging the chain belt, here’s a slew of gold chain belts for cheap.
