From wholesome Disney princess to chameleonic beauty icon; Selena Gomez has come a long way in the beauty landscape (and truly proven the transformative power of makeup and hair).

With a little help from makeup wizard Hung Vanngo and hairstylist Marissa Marino, Gomez has engaged in some risky (beauty) business in recent years; changing up a style which, to begin with was virtuous and at times bland, to brave and original (read: neon pink eyes and a bleached bob, need we say more?). Put simply, the beauty evolution of Gomez has been stellar. And to celebrate her 26th birthday, we’re throwing the singer a big ol’ beauty party; a beauty retrospective with 26 of our favourite Gomez hair and makeup moments in recent history.

Happy birthday to you, Miss Gomez.
