Exploring Shakira’s Most Memorable Beauty Moments Throughout the Years

Through the years, we’ve watched global superstar Shakira rock a series of noteworthy beauty looks. For someone with millions of eyes on her, the Colombian singer-songwriter has given the public everything from shiny, long, dark strands (hello, “Pies Descalzos” era!), to bold graphic eyeliner, to more natural-looking, barely-there makeup that flaunts her beautiful skin.

At 46, the mom of two is an inspiration for ageing beautifully, and there’s no doubt that her down-to-earth charm, no-te-dejes-caer personality, and overall charisma all play a part in her gorgeous exterior.

Because there’s nothing like living in the present, 2023 has proven to be one of the singer’s best years — but not only professionally. Look at her — she’s been glowing! Despite having recently experienced heartbreak in June 2022 following her separation from her longtime partner, football star Gerard Piqué, the “El Jefe” singer appears to be living one of her most fierce beauty moments, and we love it.

The 2023 MTV Video Music Awards Video Vanguard winner has brought her A-game across all spectrums, allowing herself to be unapologetically Shakira, and she’s even shown a speck of vulnerability through her music. She’s permitted herself to grieve publicly through her artistry as a form of self-healing, which ultimately allows her to be one with herself again.


In addition to her recent awards and music hits, Spotify named her the most-streamed Latina woman artist, declaring Sept. 29 as Shakira Day or Día de Shakira. And who wouldn’t want to celebrate that?

In honour of all her recent success, we’re taking a stroll down memory lane to relive some of her best beauty looks and her evolution over the years. There’s no question she continues to be a major inspiration for Latinas on multiple levels, and beauty is just one of them.

Watch as the mega pop star’s beauty looks evolve from her early career days to now.
