The Queen of Soul has many fans, including us, and we’re in our feelings.

Aretha Franklin was the first woman ever to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, won 18 Grammy Awards, earned a Presidential Medal of Honor and performed for three U.S. presidents. She had a résumé that few could rival, but can we also just take a second to highlight her iconic looks?

Franklin was never without lashes, a bomb brow and/or eyeliner sharp enough to cut steel. She experimented with a number of hairstyles, but always kept her beauty regimen clean and simple. Much like her classic voice, her look was flawless. And the beauty staples she used to achieve it are still popular today.

As we continue celebrating her life, scroll through for a look back at some of our favorite Aretha Franklin beauty moments.
