Celebrity Inspirations: Solange Knowles

And another one…

So, I was watching the 2009 Video Music Awards (VMA’s) last month (I know I am late, lol) and apart from all the drama which took place that night, a few people really caught my eye. Case in point: Solange Knowles, I had to take a second look at her. I totally loved her new look, it was refreshing. Her makeup was on point and it fit perfectly with her new hair cut. Below is a picture of Solange at the VMA’s:

I used my Graftobian foundation Palette to find her perfect match.  Feel free to use whatever concealer, foundation and powder that works best on your skin type.
