Like a mood ring, Rihanna's look constantly changes depending on what she's feeling at the moment — and very rarely sticks around for too long. Her hair has gone from a pitch-black pixie to red mermaid waves, with so many styles in between. Her makeup game is undoubtedly on lock. Yeah, we've dubbed other celebs beauty chameleons, but RiRi holds the throne. And soon, she'll have a line of her very own to experiment with
The Barbadian singer has smeared almost every color of the rainbow across her pout and rocked it each and every time. “[Rihanna's] fearless. It’s easy to do fun, daring shades with her because she can pull it off,” Mylah Morales

But even if you don't have a red carpet event in the near future (or a talented makeup artist in your back pocket), you can still go bold like Rihanna. Morales says the key to pulling off daring colors is to keep everything else on your face subtle — all you need is a simple canvas of foundation, concealer, and mascara. "Your face is sort of your palette," she says. "It has to be refined and done well. Then, you can pull off any lipstick you want."

Rihanna won't hurt. So just pop on some "Diamonds" and get inspired to shine bright, y'all.
