When a legendary rock photographer pairs up with some of the freshest singers in the music biz, you KNOW something amazing is bound to happen. For V Magazine’s first ever music issue, they put Mick Rock behind the lens to shoot ladies Solange Knowles, Cassie, JoJo, VV Brown and MNDR in an all-out sultry neon beauty photo sesh. We can’t stop staring at all of these florescent makeup looks because, um, we NEED to try all of these trends for spring! One of our favorite looks is on Solange—she wore neon coral eyeliner on the top of her lids, but only took it halfway across her bottom lid. Iiiiinteresting! She topped off her peepers with super long (but not thick) falsies that pop against the orangey-pink liner. Solange kept the rest of her face au naturale, including her hair and nails, as to not distract from her fiercefully-lined lids. And that metallic green motorcycle jacket? It’s Bess NYC by Doug Abraham. (You’re welcome.)

Up next for their close-up: Cassie! This girl is flawless (no seriously—we’ve seen her IRL) and so is her beauty game. She paired shimmery teal shadow with a swipe of cat eye liner, dark brown cheek-defining blush, and blinding cherry red lips. She also sported short coral nails and bamboo doorknocker hoops for an added touch of dramz. (P.S.— She makes us want to shave the sides of our heads, like, right now. Don’t worry, mom, we won’t.) JoJo looks like a retro vixen in her luscious side-parted waves. She sported super dark brows with THE most killer cat eye (please notice the liner is coming from beneath her lower lids. Yeahhh.), bold peach blush, and bubblegum pink frosted lips. Cheeky!

MNDR (aka Amanda Warner) went light and shimmery on the eyes, soft pink on the lips, and out-of-this-world bold on her nails! We wish we could’ve seen those bad boys up close, but it looks like she mixed a plethora of colors together on her tips and topped it off with a coat of black crackle polish. Also, that Versace varsity jacket? Um, haiiiii. *waves* Our girl VV Brown looks like an ethereal goddess in her long, glossy strands, blunt bangs, and DKNY kimono top. She went burgundy on both her lips AND nails, but lined her eyes in electric blue for an extra punch of color.
