Beyoncé wore a ‘unique’, silver makeup look for her Renaissance party because she is always the moment

Beyoncé recently celebrated the release of Renaissance with a Studio 54-inspired party.

Beyoncé hosted a Studio 54-inspired party to celebrate the release of Renaissance and rocked a unique makeup look.

The pop icon matched her crystallised leotard with metallic silver eyeliner, that’s likely going to be the next big party trend.

The Club Renaissance event in New York City featured a host of A-list and queer guests who repped their best Studio 54 themed outfits.

And it’s easy for fans to replicate Beyoncé’s standout shimmery, metallic cat eye look.

We don’t know the exact product Queen Bey used to get her silver, disco look, but there are some products out there that can help you recreate it.

This includes Byredo’s Kajal Pencil in Chaandee, which is available to buy from SSENSE, or this eyeshadow from Maybelline in the shade Silver Oyster.

Fans were obsessed with her look for the party, with one commenting: “She’s an icon, she’s a legend and she is the moment.”

Others simply wrote “unique” referencing the track “Unique” from the album.

Another said, “face card never decline,” as well as “you look magical”.

The guestlist for Club Renaissance included her mother, Tina Knowles, Janelle Monáe, Big Freedia, fellow Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams, Ty Hunter and Lena Waithe.

They partied to the instantly iconic album, which recently made history as Beyoncé became the first female artist to have her first seven studio albums debut at number one in the United States on the Billboard 200.

Plus all 16 tracks from the album, including “Alien Superstar”, “Thique” and “Summer Renaissance” charted on the Billboard Hot 100.

Beyoncé’s Renaissance honours queer and trans ballroom trailblazers

Beyoncé’s latest album is a love letter to the Black LGBTQ+ community, with the singer dedicating the album to her late uncle Johnny, “the most fabulous gay man” she knew, who served as inspiration for the project.

The album’s dedication section reads: “Thank you to all of the pioneers who originate culture, to all of the fallen angels whose contributions have gone unrecognised for far too long.”

In the album booklet for Renaissance, she also emulates the iconic fashion of the ballroom.

As pointed out by fans, her glitzy gold outfit is a clear reference to the legendary Pepper LeBejia, while her demure leather black corset look has drawn parallels to Octavia St. Laurent, both stars of the film Paris Is Burning.

Queer fans have praised Beyoncé’s attention to the rich history and structure of Ballroom culture evident in songs such as “Heated”, “Pure/Honey”, “Summer Renaissance” and “THIQUE”.

“This is how you do a ballroom-inspired song!!! See what happens when you actually involve the people that know what they’re doing? The placement of the crashes, the synergy between the samples and Beyoncé’s singing, the understanding of the structure of ballroom music,” one person wrote.

Renaissance sees the pop icon collaborate with and sample Black artists across genres and time, including Black trans DJ pioneer, Honey Dijon and ’90s drag artist Moi Renee.
