Makeup Looks Solange Rocks That We Never Could

Solange Knowles is an artist—not just because of the music creates, but the way she lives her life.

If you've never checked out her , please pause reading this article and .

I'll wait.

Now that you've got an idea of the brilliance that is Solange and her aesthetic choices, you undoubtedly have an appreciation for it.

I specifically have a deep appreciation for her makeup choices. She can essentially wear any look flawlessly, no matter how bizarre or outlandish, and pulls it off in a way that the average mortal could never dream to.

Here are just a few examples:

The all-over eyeshadow look

Solange: Elegant, modern, artful goddess.

You: Look like your toddler broke into the painting supplies and spackled the heck out of your eyelids.



Solange: A dreamy, jewel-toned creature.

You: Look like you drew haphazardly on your face with a purple Sharpie.



Solange: Glowing, mauve-y princess.

You: Look like you got in a street fight.

The geometric eyeliner look

Solange: Cleopatra if she was even cooler and more badass.

You: Can't draw a straight line to save your life.

The body paint look

(Okay, this isn't technically a makeup look, but come on—she is pulling it off.)

Solange: Avant garde queen of the world, radiating beauty and poise.

You: Look like you slipped and fell into a pool of glitter glue.

We can't all be Solange, unfortunately, but we can sure as hell try.

Pass the glitter glue.
