Create Beyoncé’s 2013 Presidential Inauguration Look

Create Beyoncé’s 2013 Presidential Inauguration Look


By Andrew Smith

Celebrity nail artist Lisa Logan tells Nail It! about her experience doing Beyonce’s nails for the 2013 Presidential Inauguration. While Logan, had to work fast and only had a limited amount of time to do the star’s nails, “The final product made history,” says Logan.

Usually when Logan works with celebrities, she sets up a color selection of what she thinks the stars would gravitate towards. For this occasion Logan kept in mind the main event and brought products that would be appropriate for a classy and regal nail look. However, Beyonce didn’t even need to look at the colors Logan had set up for her because she already knew exactly what she wanted! Beyonce said, “I want orange,” and Logan responded, “Orange it is.” Logan used NCLA’s fiery orange I’m with the Band for the manicure.

“I think Beyonce just changed the game only because the designated color this year was green. I think she just shifted that,” Logan comments.

Beyonce’s makeup also looked stunning at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration. Here are some tips to re-create Beyonce’s look from famed celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal, who worked with her for this special day.

Mally shares her tips and tricks on how to steal Beyonce’s look from the 2013 Presidential Inauguration:

To first set the skin, apply my Perfect Prep Poreless Primer all over the face and my Cancellation Concealer directly underneath the eyes.

To achieve natural-looking coverage, first, apply my Ultimate Performance Liquid Foundation. Next, add a sweep of my NEW Diamond Unpowder that will illuminate the skin followed by brushing on my Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo to the cheeks in order to provide a soft, radiant glow to the skin.

To achieve a rich, smokey eye – try my Evercolor Shadow Stick in Saddle Shimmer. Apply this all over the eyelid and underneath as well. Next, select a few shades from the Mally Beauty In the Buff Palette and sweep that onto the eyelids. Finish the look by applying a small amount of my Age Rebel Shadow Stick in Chocolate Diamond on the bottom lid right under your eyelashes to open up the eye followed by using my Lightwand Eyebrightener to the inner corners to instantly brighten this area. Lastly, to achieve this bold eyeliner at-home, try using the Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Eyeliner in Midnight, layered with the Ultimate Performance Ink Eyeliner (which is exclusive to

Compliment this confident eye by pairing it with a mascara that will enhance the overall look – such as the Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara and/or my NEW Instant Impact Mascara. To create glossy, Beyoncé worthy lips try my High Shine Lip Gloss in Mally’s Look or Mally’s Baby.

And last but not least, before you leave the house, apply the Mally Beauty Face Defender to lock your makeup in place and Perfect Prep Hydrating Under Eye Brightener to make the eyes pop!

Anyone can achieve this easy-to-wear look at home. It works on all ages, skin type and color!
