I think she looks lovely with blonde hair. But with Beyonce you never know what true and what not. I mean the last press she had was she was pregnant and now she is head lining Glastonbury and is working on another album. So she could have been bleached but then again you never know :/

Beyonce's face is ery blemished. Her face is always fixed up in Photoshop. Images are ligtened/ darkened all the time
the lighting thing is WRONG!
people who are originally light toned to begin with will appear light in cam,OBVIOUSLY! I know people who wear high spf foundation and they looked still dark skinned on cam..Alek wek still looks dark in any bright lighting,so does wesley snipes and others.. the brighter the better when it comes to lighting because it brings out your true tones.Personal preference. WE HUMANS ALSO DONT TAKE PICS IN THE DARK! Ive seen pics where its a group photo and the light people appeared pale and darker toned people still appear darker toned. Its a basic concept.
Dark skin will appear dark skkin regardless, light skin will appear light on cam regardless! Lighting doesnt change skintone, if that were teh case wesley snipes and the rest of black celebrities would be looking caucasian. Do not make ignorant statements. PLEASE!
Also keep in mind that we get darker do to seasonal change, the sun darkens us...AFRICAN AMERICANS TOO!
If anything, the features have been altered, but anything else is just her skin! Also keep in mind that Beyonce uses alot of bronzer on her skin, there are pics of her and other celebs with deep skintones because she uses bronzer. Also, because Beyonce's hair is blond most of the time, there is no contrast with the skin.
However, please dont say "lighting" it is not lighting! Pale people will appear pale on cam, dark skinned people will appear dark. lighting only brings out the true tones.

White or Light skin shows out better in front of the camera then dark skin. It has to do with reflection of light. White or light skin reflect light 100 fold better then dark skin (which absorbs it). And if you know anything about cameras u know the object that is being captured by the camera has to reflect the light projected unto it in order to be caught by the camera lens.
