If there’s one celeb that’s truly deserving of a shout out, it’s Sophia Bush. Besides being the star of “Chicago PD,” she’s a passionate philanthropist who’s constantly inspiring us with her empowering initiatives. The woman even has social media down to a science, using her Instagram account as a careful curation of beauty tips, fashion inspiration, and even more amazing activism. And to top all that off, she’s been one of our biggest beauty role models since the early aughts on “One Tree Hill.”

Whether it’s with a brand-new hair color or a bold lipstick shade, Sophia always reminds us that beauty is about feeling confident, comfortable with yourself, and taking a risk every now and then. Before you sit down to Netflix binge on some Brooke Davis wisdom, check out some of the celeb’s best hair and makeup moments of all time, below.

Bush was basically wearing a slightly updated version of the “Rachel” in the mid-2000s. And obviously, we thought that flippy, layered hairstyle—along with her shiny pink lip gloss—was total beauty perfection.

In her first major hair color change, Sophia went for a rich, auburn red—an autumnal shade that still inspires us to this day.

Bringing ’50s beauty vibes to 2009, the actress paired her perfect matte lipstick with Hollywood glam waves and lots of lashes.

She’s even mastered ballerina buns and bottom liner—two beauty looks that will forever be classics but can go so wrong so fast.

At PETA’s 30th Anniversary Gala and Humanitarian Awards, Sophia paired her low-key ponytail with a matte berry lipstick shade and her signature bronze metallic shadow. Take a closer look at these pics—she clearly loves this product.

Giving long, highlighted hair a shot in 2012, Sophia attended the CFDA Awards wearing messy curls, a rosy flush, and an extremely icy shade of pink lipstick that strangely really worked.

Did you forget about Sophia Bush’s blunt bangs? She made them the focal point of this look by styling the rest of her hair in a high bun. Once again, she opted for metallic shadow and a glossy lip.

A very blonde Sophia Bush attended the 2014 CFDA Awards wearing a bold beauty look through and through. She paired her ’20s-style, wavy bob with matte red lipstick and a shimmery smokey eye.

Now that’s an eyeliner look! Her graphic makeup makes the standard cat-eye seem boring.

Sophia is currently wearing her honey brown hair in a super versatile bob. We love this side-swept, curly look she was spotted weraring over the summer.
