After taking the music world by storm, often with bestie Taylor Swift by her side, Lorde has finally returned after a nearly 3 year musical hiatus. Becoming an overnight sensation, the Royals singer quickly became a red carpet favorite for her dark and daring looks. Known for her lioness mane of dark curls and ever-changing lip color, Lorde has worn every lip color from black to red to violet and every shade in between. And since Lorde’s love of lipstick has become the star of her signature look, the singer even nabbed her own collaboration with MAC cosmetics. As the New Zealand beauty debuts her new song “Green Light”, we take a look back at the star’s best red carpet beauty moments.
