Happy Birthday, Mick Jagger! The Rock Icon’s 13 Best Beauty Moments

"Anything worth doing is worth being overdone," Mick Jagger once said. The Rolling Stones front man, who turns 78 today, has applied this mantra to every facet of his life, including outside of music (see him wriggling his hips on stage or showing off his sartorial boast). In the field of beauty, Jagger took a bold, gender-equitable approach that, with the exception of his contemporary and collaborator, David Bowie, was unprecedented for the time.
First, to say the obvious, Jagger had great hair and knew exactly what to do with it (see his hips again and his boast), all thanks to his mom, who was a hairdresser. His brunette mane was a continuous flow of shapes and lengths, but always anchored by shaggy layers that swept over the eyebrows that looked elegant and seductive against the establishment. And like Bowie, Jagger had a great face to put on thanks to his big blue eyes, holy cheekbones and pouty lips. Starting in the late 60s and 70s, Jagger decorated his face extravagantly for shows with traces of lip liner around his mouth, black pigment smeared into the water lines, electric shadows he swept over his eyelids, and tinsel spattered from sequins, sometimes subtle, mostly noticeable, on the outer corners of the eyes. Here's a look back at his most enduring beauty moments, because it's his birthday and because it's Mick Jagger.
