The 2016 Met Gala had Knowles wearing a closely, cropped lob. Her makeup palette was all about sheen and shimmer, featuring a touch of silver along her eyes and a lip coated in gloss.

Knowles had fun with color for this 2016 look. Her eye makeup was the focus, with the singer wearing a pastel shade of purple that extended from her lids to below the brow line.

Knowles matched her liner to her dress, wearing a pop of white that hit just below her brows. For this 2016 event, she also sported curly bangs.

This magical, angled cut and shimmer glossy lid was on everyone's Tumblr mood board the summer Knowles shared it to Instagram — and with obvious reason.

Looking absolutely ethereal in 2017 — thanks to her white dress and neutral lip coloring — Knowles let her hair reach full heights, her curls billowing outward.

For this March 2017 shoot, Solange went full platinum. To add an even bigger sense of drama to the look, she kept her brows a darker shade.

Wearing negative space eye makeup to the 2017 Grammys, Knowles further added to her outfit with an updo made of towering curls.

This October 2017 event had Knowles wearing a hairstyle that was a literal work of art. Wearing her hair in a tight, short braided top knot, a halo seemingly made of hair was wrapped around her head.

With a short blonde cut, the singer added bold red eye shadow to her outer eyelids for this December 2017 image.

For her surprise performance at Maryam Nassir Zadeh's September 2017 New York Fashion Week show, Knowles opted for platinum braids styled with ornate beads throughout, and bold brown statement brows.
