Team Solange!

Solange Knowles has gotten a lot of flack from bloggers for her more unique make up choices of late. After looking through the comments sections on these blogs and the many "like it or hate it" polls, I was glad to see that "the general public" is split about 50/50 on this one.

Check out some of the looks she's worn recently...

I think the yellow look in the second photo is really cute. Personal tastes aside though, I think she should be applauded for trying something different and wearing it because she likes it. There are enough cookie cutter lookalikes out there. And for every woman who says this look is a "hot mess", I hope there is a young girl who is inspired to explore her own aesthetic and actually wear what she thinks is beautiful and what makes her feel beautiful. Go team Solange!

Furthermore, these looks put the fun back in make up. It's a refreshing change. I've seen enough smokey-eye variations to last me a lifetime anyway. And, I would wear this look. Yes, for a night out, I would. But instead of across the bridge of my nose, I'd wear it on my temples, kinda like Kat von D's star tattoo.

Or maybe in bright colors, or with a henna tatoo design or all out like this look by Stella Leung?

Why not have fun with it!
