“She’s ahead of the game and willing to try new things,” her longtime makeup artist Mally Roncal (left) tells PEOPLE. “What’s old is new again with her. She’s so experimental and is such a true artist.”
And now that Beyoncé is pregnant with her first child, Roncal, who most recently did the singer’s make-up with the Mally “My Favorite Things” kit (available on QVC.com) for her 20/20 interview, plays up her natural glow. “She’s the most beautiful pregnant person I’ve ever seen in my life,” the makeup artist shares. “[On 20/20] she really just wanted to look healthy, glowy and natural but with that hint of glamour.”
To get Beyoncé’s glam but understated 20/20 look, use the kit’s “Firework” eye shadow all over the lids, followed by the “Twilight” eye shadow in the crease of the eyes and the “Purple Rain” eye shadow across the lash line.
“I like to play with color on her to add interest and draw attention to her eyes,” Roncal says. “But the key is to always blend properly so that you don’t see any harsh lines. That really adds to the healthy glow of the skin.”
The makeup artist also used two different eyeliners on Beyoncé, and finished the look with the “Fuzzy Navel” lip gloss. “It’s this gorgeous, soft peach [color],” Roncal explains, “and not only did [Beyoncé] go crazy but Katie Couric was like, ‘Oh my god, I have to have it!'”
