When Disney announced its voice cast for The Lion King, the whole world zoomed in on one word: Beyonce. Beyonce will be the voice of Nala, Simba’s childhood playmate, and eventual wife.
Beyonce has long been famous for her inspired outfits, and stunning makeup and hair. For many years, she’s worked with one makeup artist: Sir John. Sir John worked with her on her Lemonade tour, her many Met Gala looks, her music videos, and her Instagram reveals.
Recently, Sir John announced a creative partnership with Luminess and Disney to create a Lion King inspired makeup palette, Beyonce’s (or Beyonce-adjacent) first foray into makeup.
So, when Sir John announced he was doing a lion king – inspired palette, people got super excited.
The line itself looks amazing.
It’s a blend of neutrals and brights, in strong pigments. The packaging is sexy and on brand. The possibilities are endless.
That bright red is stunning. Finding red lipstick is like finding the holy grail. This lipstick is featured on a variety of skin tones on the Luminess page and it looks bright without being too orange on everyone.
Sir John said he was inspired by his trip to Africa.
He wanted to bring the colors found in African nature to his Lion King collaboration. Exotic neutrals tend to work on everyone — natural colors suit almost every skin tone.
All of this build-up to the Lion King premiere means basically one thing: Incredible outfit and face looks from Beyonce and hopefully a new song or two to celebrate!
