When I think of a beauty icon, one that’s representing for the brown girls, and really knows how to work it in every setting, I think of one bad gal. Rihanna. Her beauty looks throughout the years have been nothing short of flawless. So while we may not have the coins or the MUA to give us a Rihanna beat, that doesn’t mean we can’t follow her gorgeous lead. Here’s five beauty lessons we’ve learned from Riri over the years.


Hair is your best accessory. Take it from Rihanna, your hair can be your best accessory if you know how to use it. This beauty has styled her tresses every way you can imagine from big curls to beach waves, blonde bobs to bantu knots, and the list goes on. Thankfully for us, there are a ton of options available to switch up your style at a moments notice. Changing your hair has never been easier. Don’t be afraid to add some color or go dramatic with a bold cut. The beauty lesson: It’s never just hair. 


You can never go wrong with a red lip. Yes, we all know red lips are classic but few have been able to show it’s versatility like Rihanna. I’ve seen this songstress rock every shade of red imaginable and werk it every time. While I may be a little bit biased—Riri Woo anyone?— there are shades from berry to brick that any of us can wear and be fierce. The options are endless, so take a note from Riri and rock a red pout. The beauty lesson: When in doubt, go red. 


 Go bold. One of the things we love about Rihanna is she is not afraid to push the limits. As a woman of color, she’s an inspiration show us brown beauties not to be afraid to try that bright eyeliner or bold lipstick. That is what beauty’s all about after all. So the next time you see that famous Instagrammer wearing the blue lipstick, don’t be scared to try it out yourself. You never know who you can inspire by pushing the limits and testing the boundaries. The beauty lesson: Go bold or go home. 


Sometimes less is more. Searching Rihanna’s beauty archives of course I came across some of the boldest and creative makeup looks. Let’s be real, the girl can serve some serious face honey! And while I’m as much of a fan of the bright lipstick and smokey eyes, some of her most flawless looks are minimalist at best. The “no makeup makeup” trend is nothing new but Rihanna shows how you can rock the most natural of beauty looks and still slay like no other. The beauty lesson: Sometimes, less makeup is the best makeup.  


Never be afraid to keep it real. If we could only take one tip from Rihanna it would have to be, to keep it real. Over her career her looks have changed and evolved, but what has always remained is her authenticity. And she translates that seamlessly into her beauty looks. Who else do yo know can rock bantu knots and doobie wraps to Hollywood events without batting an eye? That confidence in self can’t be bottled up and bought on a shelf, but I assure you if you can master that, people will notice!The beauty lesson: The fact that you’re YOU is your most beautiful asset.
