Ever since her first album, Music of the Sun, dropped in 2005, we knew that Rihanna [1] would dominate — both the music industry and beauty trends. Her perfect bone structure is an amazing canvas for any makeup look, and we love that she's willing to take risks. She has tested unusual lip colors [2] (including blue and green!) and always turns heads with her incredible wig choices [3]. Scroll through to see more of her best beauty looks including the times she was a blonde, rocked a pixie, and more!
