PSA: Lion King Inspired Makeup Exists, So You Can Channel Your Inner Lioness

Step aside Queen Nala!

We’ve basically been waiting for it since the ’90s and it’s finally here: The Lion King remake, with Beyonce.

And now because obvs we all need a fierce ‘cat-eye’ in our lives, a Lion King-inspired makeup range is here too. And it’s been created by Bey’s own makeup artist and friend, Sir John.

Unsurprisingly the collection’s looks are all fairly eye-focused with bold tones and deeply pigmented eyeshadows. Take a look:

The collection is made up of a vibrant eye shadow palette, sculpting kit (because Sir John says “sculpting is the new contouring… it’s way more natural and flattering”), ‘The Circle of Life’ highlighter compact, a tinted lip balm and the dreamiest, creamiest matte lipsticks. The packaging is seriously gorgeous: Think Disney store for makeup-loving adults.

Sadly, the actual collection isn’t available in SA but we’re feeling so totally inspired by these makeup looks that we’ve handpicked products to help you recreate these fierce looks!
