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. 
MTV VMA Solange Knowles Inspired Look
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.
