2021 was Chloe Bailey’s year. From launching her own Instagram account to taking the music world by storm with her first solo venture, “Have Mercy,” the 23-year-old superstar stepped into her own in more ways than one. Determined to continue this streak of self-exploration in the new year, the singer, now known simply as Chlöe, is gracing In The Know’s January 2022 digital cover — and it’s all about self-love.
In her epic cover story, Chlöe dished on how her mentor and boss, Queen Bey herself, helped her embrace her sexuality and curvy figure long before they even met.
“I can honestly and genuinely say it was Beyoncé who made me look at my body and say maybe it is okay to have my body,” she told In The Know. “Maybe it is okay to have a plump butt. Maybe it is okay to have to shake and jump to fit in my jeans. During the ‘Bootylicious’ era, I would go and see her flaunting her curves and be like, ‘She looks damn good!'”
Now, the two work closely together, making this a true full-circle moment for the young singer. And Chlöe, now more than ever, is the true embodiment of self-love, thanks to Beyoncé’s inspiring mentorship — and this cover shoot shows just that.
Rocking a soft eye design, a matte base and a glossy lip, the singer took a more demure approach to her cover look, rocking all things Fenty Beauty.
Achieve Chlöe’s perfectly highlighted cheekbones with the new Fenty Beauty Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter.
Available in five shades, this new product is the liquid form of Rihanna’s iconic highlighter. It’s smooth and superfine, giving an ultra-modern layer of fresh, high-shine radiance to any makeup look. Best of all, it’s buildable and transfer-resistant.
For her base, the budding music icon rocked the foundation that helped change the makeup game forever. Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is available in a whopping 50 shades, featuring a wide range formulated specifically for deeper complexions.
The brand’s Instant Retouch Concealer is another must-have for those who love that medium-to-full-coverage glam. Also available in 50 shades, this creamy, long-wear, creaseproof liquid concealer gives you that easy application with a light-as-air finish.
Chlöe’s rocking this product on her under-eye area and everywhere she wanted a bit more highlight.
As the last item on the agenda for this makeup look, the “Have Mercy” singer’s juicy pout can be yours with the cult classic Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer. This product comes in eight shades ranging from the deep brown “Hot Chocolit” to the sheer and glittery “Glass Slipper.”
If you want to snag anything from this list, this is the one to get because it’s versatile, complements any complexion and is the perfect finishing touch essential.
ORS Ultra HD Gel, $3.97
Though not related to her makeup look, we couldn’t mention Chlöe without highlighting her stunning locs and baby hairs. The singer is known for having the freshest and most stunning loc styles and designs. She keeps her edges perfectly sculpted and hydrated with the extremely affordable ORS Ultra HD Gel that’s been a staple in the natural hair community for decades.
