If Queen Bey relies on you for makeup, then—in our eyes— that would make you beauty royalty. Meet Sir John, knighted beauty master of A-list beauty trendsetters like Beyoncé, Chrissy Teigan, Joan Smalls and countless others. And, before you ask, yes, that is his real name. Clearly, he was destined for this.
