In Dreamgirls, Beyoncé Knowles plays Deena Jones, a member of a singing trio called The Dreams. Here, she’s shown in the midst of “One Night Only,” a disco song. Knowles was showered with glitter before the scenes were filmed. Make-up artist Francesca Tolot was inspired to create this look after she saw the sequined, thrillingly reflective costume.
White glitter from a craft store; M.A.C. Glitter in Purple, Jewelmarine and 3-D Gold; M.A.C. Glitter liquid eyeliner in Divine Lime. Tolot followed the natural shape of Knowles’ eyes when lining them, resulting in a bold almond contour. She extended the white glitter upwards, so that it touched Knowles’ eyebrows.
Tolot used no product, leaving the focus on the shape and grooming of the brows. This contrasts with the beginning of the film, when Deena’s less refined look required Tolot to thicken the brows.
