Beychella is such a kween she had Coachella named after her.

Her jaw-dropping 26-song performance is officially in the history books, as are her litany of couture costume changes. So, what does the biggest superstar on the planet wear on her face for such a gig?

Her makeup artist Sir John told Elle.com exactly how she got that glow - and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

"Beyoncé's Coachella beauty look can be described as 'the coolest girl on campus at college, meets Greek goddess," he said."We did a glittery beautiful eye, soft nude-pink lip with golden luminous skin from head to toe."

"About three weeks. I was dropping in and out of the dress rehearsals and just watching and soaking it all up. I was so inspired by the choreography and the styling, so I started a Pinterest board of cool college girls and went from there."

They used a mixture of high end brands like Tom Ford's Ultimate Bronzer (€88), but then prices drop to MAC's (shade Blacktrack, €21) but the real surprise is a L'Oreal brand because sometimes you just can't beat the original.

Sir John used L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara (€14.99 at pharmacies nationwide) which lasted all night, in addition to the brand's Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick (€11).

And he even dished the secret to her flawless skin - ALLEVEN London Color Shield ($80 from Alleven.com).

"It is a super lightweight aerosol airbrush body concealer. It literally looks like your skin is HD, airbrushed without it being too obvious. I sprayed the shade Amber all over her body 30 minutes before she got dressed, with a focus on legs and cleavage. I also gave her face a light spray as it really evens out the complexion. It’s so lightweight, it doesn’t even look like makeup.

"The great thing about this product is it doesn’t transfer. So, when she’s changing her clothes so many times it doesn’t come off in between," he said.
