It is pretty safe to say that I am super excited and also super nervous about today’s post. This is my first post as a member of The Beauty Council. The Beauty Council is a diverse group of beauty bloggers who will be collaborating on posts to bring you our take on select beauty topics.
For our first post, The Beauty Council is taking on the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. I saw a lot of great looks on the red carpet this year, and I cannot wait to see what some of the others girls recreated. I decided to do a look inspired by Solange Knowles.
I like that Solange kept things toned down. Solange’s look was simple, dewy highlighted skin was the focal point with a pop coming from the colored feathered lashes. I wanted to keep with the colors that Solange wore which appeared to be warm orange tones. I couldn’t find any orange lashes so I went with these black feathered ones to keep a bit of flare.
The lip was kept very neutral and understated.
This is how Solange appeared on the Red Carpet.
This is the breakdown of the products I used for my Solange inspired look;
Sheer Cover Base Perfector Primer
Temptu Airbrush Foundation in Chestnut
Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Shimmering Highlighter
NYX Dewy Finish Face Mist
Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner in Brown
Milani Eyeshadow Primer in Nude
Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow in Cappuccino
Stila Eyeshadow in shade Fire from the In The Know Palette
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara in Black
Ardell Wildlash A Roaring Collection (these had no name/number, I purchased them from Walgreen’s in 2012)
Nars Blush in Taj Mahal
Hard Candy Baked Bronzer in Tiki
Milani Color Statement Liner in Nude
Loreal Color Riche Lipstick in Sheer Linen
NYX Butter Gloss in Madeleine
So tell me, how did I do? In hindsight I wish I would have brushed my hair out to make it bigger. Did you have a favorite look from this years award show?
