Au naturel: Beyoncé went make-up free for lunch in Paris on Thursday with Jay-Z and Blue Ivy
She may be on a world tour but Beyoncé still makes sure to put aside plenty of time to be with her family.
And when it comes to her downtime the singer likes to ditch the stage make-up and sexy costumes and go au naturel.
The star went bare-faced on Thursday as she and husband Jay-Z took their 15-month-old for a meal at Septime restaurant in Paris.
She has placed a ban on press photographers at her concerts in an apparent bid not to be caught looking less than her best, but on this occasion the star was more than happy to show off her natural beauty.
Jay-Z is currently accompanying Beyoncé on tour and their bouncing baby Blue Ivy is getting to see the world too.
As they made their way into the eatery, both Beyoncé and Jay-Z showered the youngster with affection, with Jay-Z seen lifting his bundle of joy into the air and planting kisses all over her.
Blue was curious about everything around her and had wide eyes as she took in the restaurant interior and her fellow diners.
She was dressed in a white T-shirt, jeans and black trainers adorned with red flecks, and the little one’s proud parents took turns in carrying her.
Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, was dressed similarly in a white T-shirt and jeans while Beyoncé looked relaxed in her all-black outfit.
The previous evening Beyonce performed in the French capital at the Palais Omni Sport Bercy.
But only images taken by her very own professional photographer Frank Micelotta, who was allegedly hired to capture her ‘best angles’, have been released.
The Love On Top singer’s decision to ban press photographers from the concerts has unsurprisingly caused some controversy.
Two images from Wednesday night’s performance have been approved and released as Beyoncé apparently attempts to prevent the release of unfavourable images.

No photo credentials are to be granted for her concerts, her UK publicist has confirmed, and instead she is relying on her own snapper, Micelotta, to capture her in action.
Fstoppers.com revealed Beyoncé’s company Parkwood Entertainment is only giving out three to five pre-approved images to media after the show, and this recent snap is part of the bunch.
The photography ban comes after it was widely reported back in February that the singer’s publicist had asked agencies or websites to remove ‘unflattering’ photos of the star during the energetic performance at the Super Bowl.
