A Look at SZA’s Best Beauty Moments

Unless you’ve made a conscious effort to ignore and avoid all new music (and talks of new music) since the beginning of the summer, you know that R&B singer SZA released one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the year, Ctrl, back in June. You’ve likely heard the now-platinum single, “Love Galore,” featuring Travis Scott, too. The 27-year-old singer, who cites Lauryn Hill and Ella Fitzgerald as major influences, had previously released three EPs—between 2012 and 2014—but this year’s Ctrl is her debut full-length album. And as of last month, it’s officially certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. Aside from her own music, you may also know SZA as the co-writer and featured singer on Rihanna’s “Consideration” or as a credited co-writer on Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj’s “Feeling Myself.”

The list of reasons for Ctrl‘s massive success is long and can only really be realized by, duh, listening to it. In fact, it’s highly recommended that you do just that while on this page. (Go ahead, open that new tab.)

While SZA’s musical talents are rapidly gaining the attention of critics and fans (she has 1.2 million followers on Twitter, at time of publishing), her beauty choices have caught our eye, too. With her signature freckles, natural makeup and ever-evolving, beautiful hairstyles, SZA is proving to be one to watch on the beauty front. The latest example of her beauty world domination? The new Fenty Beauty campaign for Mattemoiselle, Rihanna’s upcoming line of lipsticks.
