We know Beyoncé‘s star quality is in the stratosphere – after all, she’s iridescent – but for her Mrs. Carter tour, her makeup artist peered into the night’s sky for inspiration.

Sir John looked to amplify Blue Ivy’s mom’s natural celestial radiance which she exudes onstage by playing with colors and textures to reflect and absorb light in different ways. He shared his mood board on Beyoncé’s official site, featuring images from film noir, ‘60s London makeup looks, cosmic constellations, cyber beauty, and a slew of fierce cat eye looks with lush lashes.

“Each look we collaborate on has a cosmic sensibility that takes on the overall look of the night sky or an angelic, ethereal approach that magnifies Beyoncé’s own brilliance,” he said, which might explain her calming aura during her infamous “Halo” performance. The pair always focuses her look to “convey Youth, Vitality, and Love.”

We’ll add his images to our own beauty mood board for a star-worthy look when we see her hit the stage this summer!
