There is no doubt about it – Rihanna is an icon in the fashion and beauty industry. We are so excited about her upcoming collaboration with cult brand M.A.C that we decided to take a look back at her many beauty transformations.
The woman literally looks good in anything and cannot take a bad photo to save her life, so we have limited this list to her top 10 beauty looks of all time.
Which is your favorite?

1. Met Gala 2014
As you will know, the Met Gala is the fashion industry ‘Oscars’, and is the perfect opportunity to debut a risky look. Rihanna opted for a dusty pink lip, graphic brows and a Flintstone inspired updo. Don’t ask us how it works – it just does.
2. Grammys 2013
This was one of Rihannas most iconic looks. It was surprisingly tame for the pop star, who usually opts for risqué outfits and a lot of skin. She glowed in a blood orange lip that perfectly matched the color of her gown. The statement lip was pared with simple eyes and gorgeous bombshell waves.

3. Grammys 2011
Who knew that red hair and mauve eye shadow could look so good? Her bright green eyes really popped when contrasted with the bright hair and makeup. Add spidery lashes, high shine lip-gloss and a barely there dress and you have an outfit only Rihanna could rock.
4. MTV Awards 2012
Rihanna makes the pixie cut sexy in this daring look at the MTV awards. The dark, cropped wig frames her delicate bone structure perfectly, and is the perfect shade for her honey colored skin. Diamond studs add a Mia Farrow twist to the look.

5. River Island Runway 2013
She stepped on the red carpet of her clothing collection for River Island wearing a 90s inspired crop top and gold hoops. Her makeup consisted of a grunge inspired maroon lip and a thick winged eye. Her hair is the real kicker, with one side flowing waves and the other shaved to a buzz cut.
6. CFDA Awards 2014
She leaves little to the imagination at last year’s CFDA awards, stepping onto the red carpet in a Swarovski crystal slip, fur shrug, g-string and not much else. The super risqué look was complimented by a smoldering dark smoky eye and a nude lip. The girls got courage.

7. Diamond Ball 2014
This could be our favorite look of all time. Rihanna has perfectly coordinated the color of her lipstick to the giant ruby dangling at her throat. Dewy makeup and a cat eye compliment the bold lip to perfection, whilst the sleek hair and ear cuffs add a modern edge.
8. Courtside 2015
RiRi showed some team spirit with courtside seats to the basketball where she debuted a bubblegum pink wig. The cropped cut showed off her to die for cheek bones and full lips. She kept the look day time appropriate by pairing with nude makeup and a simple white cami and jeans.

9. iHeart Radio Awards 2015
We can’t believe we’re saying this but we love this look from Rihanna. The bottle green lipstick is a little out there but fits perfectly with her gothic outfit. The all black ensemble called for something a bit left of center, and the crazy knotted hair-do definitely ticks that box. Her eyes are kept super neutral, but highlighted with a pair of fluttery falsies.
10. Home Premiere 2015
This ladylike look is something a little different for Rihanna. The high bun and demure front fringe show a softer side to her style, but the dark lip brings the drama and adds her signature edge.
