Since she came on the scene 15 years ago, Hilary Duff has served as a walking Instafeed of top beauty trends. Throwback to her Lizzie McGuire era, and you'll recall the then-teen rocked teal eyeliner, extensions, and mad lip gloss — the onetime beauty essentials of ingenues everywhere. And now? The mother-of-one is right on target with a revolving door of rainbow-colored hair. (Duff says she gleans inspiration from Instagram, just like many of us.)
