Rihanna Makes The Case For Beach Hair & Black Lipstick

While we're all embracing the no-makeup makeup look — especially with the sweltering heat fast approaching — Rihanna's taking a different, more unexpected, approach to summer beauty: wavy red hair and black lipstick.

But, this doesn't exactly surprise us — the singer is clearly no stranger to experimenting with her look. She donned a purple lip (that sold out instantly) just a couple weeks ago and has us all wanting to embrace the Frida Kahlo brow look ever since she dropped her BBHM single. Leave it to the bad gal herself to get us to rethink wearing black lipstick on days other than Halloween. Her tousled ginger locks and dark lip are only made better by her getup, which is total goth meets hip-hop meets glam badass — a look that, let's be real, only RiRi herself can pull off with such ease.

But, that doesn't mean we can't attempt it. What do you think, are you feeling the black lipstick? Or, will you be sticking to more neutral shades this summer?
