Beyonce served up glamour with a touch of dark edginess and a 1920s flapper feeling at The Shawn Carter Foundation Gala.
Her flowing blonde hair was styled in flowing waves. The top of the head was parted in the center and gelled down for a finger waves effect. The look was kept sleek and tight until the ears then it presented a looser, fuller texture.
A burgundy, blackened red lipstick was the major part of her makeup. Matte natural skin and mid-brown eyeshadow balanced the rich matte lipstick.
Black nail polish contributed to the darkly romantic effect.
