Why Everyone Is Talking About Beyonce's Makeup in the New Coldplay Video

Mary Peffer

It’s been a busy weekend of buzz-worthy music video premieres. There was Zayn Malik’s swoon-worthy debut solo single, "Pillowtalk" starring supermodel Gigi Hadid. And on the very same day, Coldplay released their video, "Hymn For The Weekend" featuring Beyonce and Bollywood actress, Sonar Kapoor.

Coldplay’s "Hymn", shot in Mumbai by the Indian director, Ben Mor, features Beyonce in traditional Indian makeup (and clothes), raising concerns of cultural appropriation versus authentic admiration and celebration. While Beyonce’s controversial look may have instantly spawned internet-wide debate —which we won’t dive into further here— we have to admit she looks beautiful per usual. Click below to watch the full video and see what everyone is discussing.

To get a creamy berry lip like Beyonce’s, we love Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Deep Aubergine ($39).
