When Solange was asked by MTV Style the cheapest thing she copped recently, Solange confessed, “I don’t know if this would be considered cheap, but this suit, which everyone keeps asking me if it’s some high-end designer, is a $150 suit from Mango. It’s amazing. It’s not the cheapest thing, but it’s definitely reasonable!”
Yes, it’s very reasonable that Solange, as the spokesbeauty that she is, would arrive at the Carol’s Daughter’s Spokesbeauty and Monoi Repairing Collection Launch looking canary cool. With a luscious crown of springy curls, she rounded out her look with t-strap sandals, a plunging necklace and orange nails.
Celebrity makeup artist Jackie Gomez was so kind to send over the beauty breakdown for Solange. She said, “We decided for a fresh look since her outfit was bright and her hair was so fab! When it came to makeup we toned it down and tried a 70’s matte glam, which I personally LOVE!”
face. “Prep the skin and use Never Let Them See You Shine Mattifiying Primer by Philosophy. For a flawless skin effect, try FACE atelier Foundation in 0 and Cover FX Conceal FX Camoflauge Concealer in Medium.”
eyes. “Solange’s gorgeous eyes can be accomplished by using Victoria’s Secret Precision Liquid Liner and Rimmel London’s Colour Rush Trio Eyeshadow in Lynx.”
cheeks. “Even though this is a matte look, you still want to achieve a subtle healthy glow so apply Korres Monoi Bronzing Powder 2 in Sunglow Warm.”
lips. “To achieve the best natural nude lip, apply Carol’s Daughter Lip Butter as a base. Define your lips with Tarte Cosmetics double-ended Lipliner in Dizzy Blonde (bronze and pinky nude) and then take the foundation you used earlier and apply it directly onto your lips for a matte and true nude color!”
Gomez also added, “Overall Solange’s look is unique yet universal and I could not be any happier with the feedback I receive every time she walks down the red carpet. Try it yourself and see how switching around a couple of makeup steps make a huge and remarkable difference.” Follow her blog at JG MAKEUP.
To get a similar nail look, try Zoya Nail Polish in Jancyn, described as the “perfect tangerine shade.”
