By Celebrity News Wire on November 15, 2012

Whether she’s all dressed up for a performance or dressed down without any makeup on, Beyonce Knowles sure knows how to look good.

Such was the case this week when the Grammy-winning superstar released brand-new photos from her 31st birthday celebration in the South of France.

One photo in particular, shown above, features a makeup-free Knowles teasing a bit of cleavage in a blue bikini and caftan coverup.

Effortless, indeed.

Knowles, who officially joined Instagram last week, spent a good chunk of time on and around her Sept. 4 birthday sailing the Mediterranean with her husband, Jay-Z, and their daughter, Blue Ivy.
