ICYMI: Sunday night was the 2020 BET Awards. It was done virtually, of course — COVID-19 is still a thing, and safety comes first. Stars called into the live show from their homes and other locations and some incredible performances were pre-filmed. As expected, here at Allure we're totally transfixed on the beauty looks A-listers wore to the show. The host of the show Amanda Seales wore not one, not two, but 11 different looks; Megan Thee Stallion's sleek long hair was as gorgeous as ever; and there were so many more. Now, we are talking about the one and only Beyoncé Knowles and her simple soft glam look.
But before we get to her stunning beauty look, let's talk about the fact that on that Sunday night, Knowles gracefully accepted the Humanitarian Award, given to her by Michelle Obama. The singer was recognized by the BET Awards for her charitable philanthropic efforts, including the work she does with BeyGood, which aims to empower young women.
In our opinion, she should have also won an award for her makeup because holy shit, she looked like a glowing goddess.
We are unsure who Knowles's glam squad was for the night but whoever you are out there, you did an incredible job. The Queen kept the look soft glam with a glowy base, subtle highlight, bronzed eyelids, and a glossy nude lip. Her hairstylist straightened her blonde hair and parted it down the middle. She then dressed up her simple beauty look with a diamond choker.
While accepting her award, Knowles dedicated it to those protesting and fighting against systemic racism and police brutality. "I want to dedicate this award to all of my brothers out there, all of my sisters out there inspiring me, marching and fighting for change," she said. "Your voices are being heard, and you're proving to our ancestors that their struggles were not in vain. Now we have one more thing we need to do to to walk in our true power, and that is to vote. I'm encouraging you to continue to take action, continue to change and dismantle a racist and unequal system. We have to continue to do this together."
Beyoncé has partnered with UNICEF to create "BeyGood 4 Burundi," a clean water initiative in East Africa, and has launched the #IDIDMYPART initiative with her mother Tina Knowles, to encourage Houston residents to get tested for COVID-19. We hope Beyoncé inspired you to go get tested, as well, and donate to the Black Lives Matter movement or other anti-racism non-profits if you are able to do so.
