Could Beyoncé be the glowiest woman on earth? Answer - yes.

But, thankfully for us mere mortals, at least a bit of the epic Queen Bey illumination can be achieved with some good old make-up.

Surely Beyoncé doesn't use regular makeup like the rest of us? It must be made with 24 carat gold and holy water, we hear you ask.

Nope. One upping her own amazingness, Bey wore pharmacy make-up for her life-changingly epic Grammys performance.

Working a golden glow from head to toe, Beyoncé's go-to makeup artist Sir John revealed that she's a L'Oréal gal at heart.

Talking to Allure, Sir John said Bey's ethereal glow was inspired by an iconic 90s Tom Ford show: 'Peter [Dundas, the costume designer] showed me references of what he liked, one of which was Tom Ford's white dress collection for Gucci back in the late 90s. So the makeup is literally that.'

How did he do it? It's all about raiding Superdrug's L'oreal Paris shelves.

Golden Eyes

Sir John (can we just take a minute to appreciate that name for a moment) created a matte brown smokey eye using L'Oréal's Color Riche La Palette Nude 1. Which is only...£14.99. YAS.

Upping the gold factor, he added a dash of L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeshadow in Nude Fishnet - nab yourself the UK version here.

Queen Bey Skin

A bespoke mix of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Glow foundation (the matte one is also great) with a drop of L'Oréal Paris True Match Illuminator, £6.99 applied to cheekbones, and, well, everywhere else. For an all over glow, Sir John covered Bey's entire body (pregnancy bump included) in the glowy highlighter mix.

And lo, we bought all of the L'Oreal makeup and basically became Beyonce IRL.
