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.
It launches on June 15, but read ahead to see some of Beyonce's most show-stopping looks and get a preview of the make up line!
Beyonce has been famous for her glam ever since Beyonce has been famous.
The early Destiny's Child looks were iconic.

Her newer performance silhouette, Balmain body suits and thigh high boots, has been ripped off by almost every other pop star.
For the past few years, Beyonce has worked with make up artist Sir John.
He's responsible for this look.
He worked with her for this awards show face.
He did the Homecoming faces.
Destiny's Child even briefly came back for Homecoming.
He did Lemonade.
He did this Met Gala
He did this Vogue cover.
He did her famous birth announcement, one of the most liked images on Instagram.
And then he did the follow-up Grammy performance.
Beyonce and Jay Z got permission to shoot their music video for APESHIT at the Musee de Louvre in Paris.
These two are close.
As Beyonce's star has soared, so has her brand.
She helmed a massively successful athleisure collab with TopShop called Ivy Park.
And, now she's working with Adidas on a new Ivy Park line.
Disney announced that she's doing the voice of Nala.In Disney's live-action reboot of The Lion King, they're trying to rectify the sin of having almost no black voice actors in the original which was set in Africa.
The Beyhive is ecstatic.
