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

It’s been a busy weekend of buzzworthy 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 Beyoncé and Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor.

Coldplay’s "Hymn," shot in Mumbai by Indian director Ben Mor, features Beyoncé in traditional Indian makeup (and clothing), raising concerns of cultural appropriation. While Beyoncé’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 Beyoncé's, we love Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Deep Aubergine ($26).
