5 BadGal Beauty Lessons from Rihanna That Went Viral in 2017

There’s no question that 2017 was the year of Rihanna. The just-released trailer for Ocean’s 8, in which she stars alongside Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling and more as a pool shark with waist-grazing dreadlocks named Nine Ball, is just the latest proof.

Never
mind that she didn’t tour or release an album, RiRi was still the
most-streamed female artist for the third year in the row. As Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year,
she also took her altruism to the next level, from meeting with French
president Emmanuel Macron to discussing international education, to
blasting out a call to action to President Donald Trump regarding the
devastation in Puerto Rico. And who could forget when she shut down the 2017 Met Gala, religiously executing the theme—as only she can—in her rapturously elaborate Comme des Garçons look?

But,
in the midst of it all, the pop star also managed to leave an indelible
mark on the beauty space, in many more ways than one. Here are just a
few of the times Rihanna radically marched to her own beauty beat in
2017.

The Launch (and Slay) of Fenty Beauty
Nearly two years in the making, Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line
bowed with the exact amount of disruption the industry needed. Whether
she’s inspiring women to go rogue with shockingly vivid shades or
dreaming up an ultra-clever moniker (her new moody brown Mattemoiselle lip shade
is aptly named “PMS”), each launch is more statement-making than the
next. But most celebration worthy of all is the high premium she puts on
diversity, from launching 40 different shades of foundation that cater
to all skin tones to casting models and artists of various ethnicities
in her campaigns.

The Video That Solidified Sweat as the Summer Beauty Accessory
In
DJ Khaled’s “Wild Thoughts” video, RiRi served up endless beauty
inspiration while purring over Santana’s infectious “Maria Maria” guitar
sample. Embracing the Miami humidity, she opted for glossy curls and
dewy skin, as well as tropical turquoise smoky eyes and cherry red lips
that popped against her glowing complexion. With less than two days to
go before winter break, who isn’t still feeling that heat?

The Feminist Slap Heard ‘Round the World
Queen
of the clap back, RiRi had no time for the Internet’s body shaming over
the summer. In response to a male blogger who felt compelled to comment
on her fuller figure, she posted an Instagram featuring side by side
shots of rapper Gucci Mane (ten years and several pounds apart) and
captioned it: “If you can’t handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don’t
deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane.“ The takeaway? RiRi’s size is always just right.

The Joy and Wonder of Kadooment Day
In
the spirit of body confidence, Rihanna attended her native Barbados’
annual Crop Over Festival in her most show-stopping look to date. With
electric blue hair and spangling of facial gems, she showed off her
hourglass curves in a bejeweled bikini that left little to the
imagination to mic-drop effect.

The Head Shave of All Head Shaves
The
music video for N.E.R.D.’s high-octane track “Lemon” (which features
RiRi spitting bars like the seasoned pro she is) opens up with the
singer shaving dancer Mette Towley’s cloud of natural curls to reveal a
powerful new buzz cut. Translation: If you want a new lease on life,
shearing off your lengths—or helping a member of your girl crew do the
same— is a BadGal’s first step.
