How To: Get 5 Looks from Beyonce’s Bonkers New Visual Album

This morning we woke up to find quite possibly the best holiday gift of all: A new visual album from Beyonce. Not only do we now have over 15 brand new Bey songs for our listening pleasure, but thanks to visual element of the release we now have so many more new Beyonce looks to study, commit to memory, and—let’s be honest—attempt to copy. Here, we break down how to steal five of her crazy-awesome looks.

What You Need: Copy Beyonce’s beachy, textured waves (even if you’re landlocked) with a spritz or two of Tony&Guy’s Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray; the only other thing you’ll need is a sexy, smoky eye—try Stila’s Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Stargazer.

What You Want: Iridescent Chic

What You Need: Start by treating any existing hair damage with Nelson j’s Argan Oil 7 Moisture Healing Mask, then work through Klorane’s Mousse with Chamomile—known to make blondes blonder!— to style hair into soft waves; pull off mega-metallic eyes with Coastal Scents Heavy Metal Eye Palette.
