There is no doubt that Rihanna is killing it in the hair and makeup department. Maybe it has to do with her perfect face? Or her talented team? Who knows, and to be honest, who cares? JK we do… All I know is she is flawless, so much so that she landed a $10 million deal for a makeup line with LVMH to launch in 2017!!! So Rihanna, work work worrrrk it girl, and keep owning that red carpet.

The list can go on and on, but here are 10 times Rihanna has SLAYED:


I’ve been loving the brown tones for lips lately, and clearly Rihanna got the memo way sooner than I did. She rocked this look at the 2014 MTV Awards.

Pink hairDisplaying tumblr_nnn8lpRAWD1rvekoro1_500.jpg don’t freakin’ care. Go girl.



YAS GIRL with those purple lips. Plums and purples look amazing on her because of her skin tone and her hazel eyes pop like crazy with this complimenting color. And can we talk about how her hair is styled perfectly messy in the picture to the right?


Flawless. Those brows? So into this makeup.


This soft hair and makeup is stunning. Rihanna looked like a total babe at the 2012 Grammys.


Do we want to talk about that swimming on the first date joke? Cause Rihanna will play..


You cannot forget about the red hair. This is when I fell hard for Rihanna. I’m obsessed with this look. I also love that she paired red lips with her red hair.

SILVER HAIR! If I could I would. Obviously that is never an issue for this gal because she can always pull it off.


Pulling back the hair to show off that perfect makeup was a good move. Loving everything about this makeup. Those lashes, top and bottom, are to die for.


Smokey eye perfection. Slay away…


But don’t worry she’s still human and reapplies..

Btw good choice with the MAC lips Ri-Ri.
