When it comes to people who take the Christmas spirit VERY seriously, nobody can touch Mariah Carey. The iconic singer, actress and all-around diva is so synonymous with the holidays that we wouldn’t be surprised if she spends December 24th appearing to the Scrooges of the world, helping them get their holiday spirit back.

So how could she not celebrate her commitment to Christmas and make her our Woman Crush Wednesday? Let’s look back at Mariah’s most iconic Christmas hair and makeup looks over the years.

When it comes to people who take the Halloween spirit VERY seriously, nobody can touch Mariah Carey. The iconic singer, actress and all-around diva is so synonymous with the holidays that we wouldn't be surprised if she spends December 24th appearing to the Scrooges of the world, helping them get their holiday spirit back.  So how could she not celebrate her commitment to Christmas and make her our Woman Crush Wednesday? Let’s look back at Mariah's most iconic Christmas hair and makeup looks over the years.

Mariah's first Christmas look? A short red minidress, white knee-high boots and retro inspired hair. This is so 1993, we can't stand it.

What says 'early '90s Christmas' like sausage curls paired with a white angora cropped cardigan (with a second red cardigan overtop)? Mariah manages to pull it off.

1994 was a simpler time; a time when you could perform at a major NYC holiday party in a cranberry ringer tee and glorious curls?

Say what you will about Mariah's look, but it's consistent. Here she's rocking her signature matte complexion, major smokey eyes and nude lips in 2002—but if we told you this photo was taken yesterday, you'd probably believe us.

Another thing we love about Mariah: she has never shied away from rocking her glorious curls. Here she is in 2003 with a glorious holiday corona of blonde ringlets.

By 2008, Mariah's diva glamour was in full effect; she recreated her 1993 mini dress outfit with a seriously stylish twist.

Mariah's 2010 deep side part and perfect hair flip is the stuff Christmas dreams are made of.

Mariah, here pregnant with #DemBabies in 2010, rocks the hell out of bright pink blush and softly center-parted hair.

We know this is a stage outfit, but if you told us that this was a photo of Mariah going to the grocery store after Thanksgiving, we'd believe you. On the beauty side, pastel pink blush and Victoria's Secret-worthy waves? Why not!

At this point, if you're NOT accessorizing your silver strapless gown with body glitter and a gardenia tucked behind one ear, what are you even doing with your life?

This look is very Mrs. Claus meets Jessica Rabbit, and nobody could pull it off as beautifully as the Queen Diva does. We especially love the hint of darkness at her roots; 2013 was truly the year of ombre.

2014: the age of contouring is upon us. Observe Mariah's cheekbones, carved out for the golds, and the incredible sharp smokey eye makeup.

Mariah at the 2015 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is ultimate Holiday hair goals. THOSE CURLS.

Is anyone surprised that Mariah is rocking big, wavy hair and major smokey eyes at her second annual "All I Want For Christmas is You" concert? No? It's magical all the same. Mariah, you are the ultimate Christmas diva. Never, ever change.
