Happy Birthday, Beyoncé! Today the Queen turns 31, and continues to amaze with her beauty, talent and knowledge of social media. Over the years, touching her face has become a go-to move during any photo opportunity, mostly likely because it's so gorgeous, even she can't resist reminding herself of how nice it feels. Since we don't understand why today isn't a national holiday, and because we can't even think to do anything else right now, here's a sampling of photos of Bey touching her face like a boss. Enjoy, and then feel free to cry at some of the heartfelt birthday messages from her inner circle.

WARNING TO ALL TEENS: Do not try this at home. Touching your face can lead to zits and Beyoncé is just magical.
