In a new tutorial with Amazon's Style Code Live, Bey's makeup artist Sir John revealed a trick we can only assume that Bey's picked up from him over the years. "Everyone's like, 'How do I perfect my wing?'" he explains. "The answer is pointed cotton buds."

But the wallet-friendly hack isn't the only *amazing* thing to come from John's how-to, as he also gave us a preview of L'Oréal's new Voluminous Liner Noir. FWIW, L'Oréal has always created my most favorite drugstore liquid eyeliners—ultra-fine-tipped pens, which dispense a smooth, highly-pigmented formula that doesn't skid on the skin.

Needless to say, I cannot wait to get my hands on their newest release, pointed cotton buds in tow.
