With such a busy life when can she make time to maintain and preserve her natural beauty? Easy, Beyonce keeps it simple.
Many people look up to celebrities not only for their talent but also for their beauty. Sometimes a celebrities beauty and good looks is attributed to make up and photo-shop; but we can’t deny that some celebs just look damn good naturally! Beyonce has flawless skin and a curvaceous body. Even without any make up on, she still looks great and therefore proving that she’s a natural beauty.

Beyonce is feminine, stylish and is not afraid to experiment, so let’s take a look at some of Beyonce’s beauty regimens, as well some of her favorite beauty products.
“I feel it is important for women to take care of themselves and look good” -Beyonce.
“I believe in women sticking together and recognizing how much we can learn from one another, supporting one another and asking questions. If you think someone is beautiful, watch them and ask questions and see how you can do the same thing, as opposed to comparing yourself to them.” -Beyonce.
Beyonce knows the secret to smooth healthy looking skin, she moisturizes often. Bey’s choice is Aquaphor by Eucerin. She applies this extremely moisturizing product to her face and body nightly before bed.
This product looks and feels like Vaseline, however it is extremely moisturizing and it has great healing properties (great for cuts, burns, sunburns, scars, ect). If applied to the entire body before bedtime you’ll wake up with skin that is super soft and supple.
“I use Aquaphor for everything—on my elbows, on my feet.” -Beyonce.

Celebrity Hair & Makeup Artist
Beauty & Entertainment Journalist
Lately I have heard about reporters choosing to work undercover to reveal secretes and unknown opinions of celebrities. At first I thought that this was OK, as long as the celebrity is aware that they are being interviewed or recorded.
However, when an reporter pays or obtains permission (in Beyonce’s case, the reporter paided to interview her) to interview a celebrity about a particular topic, then during the interview the reporter reveals that they have another agenda, there might be a problem with the integrity of the reporter. Especially if the reporter uses their footage or interview to embarrass or slander the celebrity. I am not judging, but I would like to know what you think of this video.
The fashion-savvy Beyonce Knowles announced she and husband Jay-Z were expecting their first child last August at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Their announcement created sheer pandemonium on Twitter by breaking all new records for most tweets ever per hour about a single celebrity.
During Beyonce’s pregnancy we saw her out on the town in a succession of ensemble outfits featuring sky-high heels, mini dresses, gorgeous blouses with skinny jeans, and high waisted stretch pants to cover her growing baby bump. Then it happened, Beyonce gave birth to baby girl Blue Ivy Carter on January 7th 2012.
Recently Beyonce has been showing off her rocking post-baby body all over town. This week Mr. & Mrs. Carter attended Michelle Obama’s fundraiser for the president’s re-election campaign on Monday night inNew York. This was just 10 weeks after giving birth to baby Blue Ivy. Beyonce wore a navy blue curve-hugging, sophisticated dress by designer Victoria Beckham.
I know sometimes it is easy to forget, but Beyonce is human, she is not a robot or a mystical magical creature from another planet. Beyonce has to work hard to stay in shape just like anyone else. So of course she had a little help! According to Star magazine, trainer Marco Borges lived with Beyonce for two-a-day workouts at 5 a.m. That takes commitment and as you can see it pays off!
On April 4th, Jay-Z and Beyonce celebrated four years marriage. Beyonce decided to celebrate the special day by launching her official Tumblr page. The page will be filled with loads of personal pictures for her swarms of fans in her “Beyhive”. Beyonce refers to her fans lovingly as the hive, and she is Queen Bey! You can check out a sneak peek of Beyonce’ s tumblr page and photo gallery right here- and celebrate with the Carters!.
We all know that 4 is Beyonce’s (and her hubby’s) favorite number, for many reasons. So it’s only natural that Beyonce does something extra special for their 4th wedding anniversary. So as a very special gift to her fans Beyonce is opening up a more personal part of her life via her new Tumblr account. Although Blu Ivy had a Tumblr page before Beyonce did, funny!
Initially Jay-Z and Beyonce kept their relationship very private, for the longest they wouldn’t even confirm that they were married. Talking to the press about their relationship, or talking about each other was a topic the couple avoided. Now Bey and Jay have become one of the most powerful couples in the industry, and now they are willing to give the public a peek into their relationship via Tumblr.
Matthew Siskin designed Beyonce’s Tumblr page and he revealed that Beyonce has over 150 picture available to start up the page, however there’s plenty more picture to come. Check out a few sneak peeks from Beyonce’s Tumblr page (including the one above) the official Beyonce Tumblr Page opens on the Carter’s Anniversary, April 4th (the password requirement will be removed when it is officially up and active). In the meantime here are some anniversary pictures from Beyonce’s Tumblr page photo gallery, enjoy!!
The new mom explains why the honor is so overwhelming at this point in her life. For more PEOPLE 2012 Most Beautiful videos visit: http://bit.ly/a8cc5l
