If there’s one celebrity who constantly dishes up some of the best makeup inspiration time and time again, it’s Rihanna. And while the singer and Fenty Beauty founder is known for her dramatic and daring looks, she’s not afraid to pare back her look and share makeup-free selfies on her Instagram. And we have to admit we can’t get enough of her embracing her flawless skin and natural real hair. Here, we’ve rounded up eight photos of Rihanna without makeup for your viewing pleasure.
#8 / Carefree natural beauty
Take your summer makeup (or lack there of!) cues from Rihanna. In one of her most recent photos she showed off loose curls and bare, glowing skin. This is carefree natural beauty at its best!
#7 / Fresh-faced with her father
We’re loving Rihanna’s laidback look in this 2016 picture with her father. Her face is makeup-free and her complexion is completely flawless.
#6 / Flawless skin and a wayward fringe
Ever had one of those days when your hair just won’t cooperate? It seems Rihanna was having one such day back in 2013! Despite her wayward fringe, her skin is flawless, without a blemish in sight.
#5 / Keeping it natural
Only a hint of smudged eyeliner and mascara stops this look from being completely makeup-free. And we have to say, Rihanna’s sultry look (which she posted to her Instagram in 2014) is definitely a winner.
#4 / Natural hair and no makeup
Rihanna’s no makeup look while on holiday with her best friend in 2013 is what dreams are made of. Even without a scrap of makeup, the singer still manages to look sultry and sophisticated.
#3 / Makeup-free on holiday
If there’s ever a time to embrace your natural hair and ditch your makeup products, it’s when you’re on holiday. And it seems Rihanna well and truly got that memo in this snap from a vacation in late 2013.
#2 / On the cover of Vogue
Although it looks like Rihanna may be wearing a hint of eye and lip makeup on this Vogue cover back in 2016, we thought her subtle look was too beautiful not to feature. We’re loving the soft and delicate combination of her pared-back makeup and natural hair.
#1 / Getting ready on set
While Rihanna captioned this 2014 Instagram photo as ‘so bored,’ we don’t think there’s anything boring about her perfectly arched brows and glowing skin!
