Get the Look: Beyonce at the VMAs

09/01/2006 at 04:23 PM ET

If you’re like us, you looked at Beyonce at the VMAs last night and thought “WOW”! Forget the couture gown– her hair and makeup were just beautiful. We caught up with her beauty squad and snagged all the details on how she got so glam.

Her hairstylist, Kim Kimble, wanted to give her “something very feminine and very glamorous. I wanted to go sleek, sexy and fashionable-rocker hot because it is the VMAs.” Another consideration was keeping her hair looking good through a high energy performance. Kimble explains, “Because she is starting with a good cut and we curled her hair backwards, it will fall right back into place.” The whole process took 2 hours and started with blowing her hair straight, using a turbo ionic hairdryer and Kerastase mousse, and then curling it with a FHI big barrel curling iron. Kimble finished it off with a light misting of hair spray.

Her makeup artist, Francesca Tolot from the Cloutier Agency, recreated the look from her brand-new “Ring the Alarm” video. She started with L’Oreal True Match Foundation in Coffee over the whole face, and set it with a light dusting of La Mer Pressed Powder in Shell. She went over Beyonce’s lids with MAC eyeshadow in Bisque and higlighted the browbone with L’Oreal Eyeshadow Single in Copper Penny, before lining the eyes with Nars Eye Liner in Black Moon and finishing them off with Mac Eyelashes. Her lips were colored in with L’Oreal Hip Lipcolor in Fearless and polished off with a layer of L’Oreal Colour Juice Sheer Lip Gloss in Peek-A-Boo Clear.

Simply gorgeous!

Her face is simply beatiful and her performance was hot. I love that her makeup was not too heavy because of the details of the dress. Simply elegant as always.

Beyonce continues to look like the Star that she is!, I am so proud of her, the way she handles herself in her dress, presentation and in the press. Quite a few of today’s so called Stars, should be taking a lesson from “B”, YOU GO GIRL!!!
