For someone as successful (and as flawless) as Beyonce, we’d imagine that her beauty routine is as expensive as her designer-filled wardrobe. This is Queen Bey, after all. The 35-year-old singer, however, proves that she’s just like any other girl who could use a cheap beauty hack in her life.
It’s nothing new that household items have been making its way into our beauty kits (thanks to beauty vloggers), but when a celebrity makeup artist recommends a hack, it’s bound to be a game-changer.
For warm-weather conditions, Beyonce’s makeup artist Sir John—the man who’s also behind the looks of Karlie Kloss and Ashley Graham—ditches the traditional brow gel to tame Queen Bey’s brows. And much to our surprise, an Elmer’s Glue Stick is his secret brow weapon to beat the sweaty, humid heat. “It doesn’t clog your pores and it washes off easily”, he shares with E! News. It makes perfect sense. After all, this school supply is sticky enough to keep those arch in place.
But while it’s hard not to pass up on any Beyonce-approved trick, it’s important to keep in mind that glue sticks come with chemical formulas that can harm the skin. Like for any other beauty hack, proceeding with caution is always necessary.
