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 .
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.
