I dunno if I have said this yet but I usually LOVE Nicki Minaj’s makeup. It’s always super bright and colorful and I just so happen to be going through a stage where I’m obsessed with acid NEON colors. I think it’s the saturation of 80’s influences invading the media that has me slightly inspired. It’s actually been winning against my all time favorite look as of late which is the 1950’s pin-up girl.
I thought I would try to replicate the look she rocked in the new Viva Glam ad for MAC with the wicked hot Ricky Martin. So here’s what I came up with:
The main difference between mine and Nicki’s (other than that she looks ridiculously Barbie doll gorgeous in the pic) is that it looks like she is wearing shadow in her eyelid and on mine is shadow and lime green glitter. It just didn’t photograph 😦 . But in person it actually came out quite lovely.
And here’s what I used
I used the B*** slap cosmetics corrector on my lid and the NYX jumbo pencil in Milk under my eye. I used shadows from my MAC neutrals palette and my POP palette (got it from Ulta). The lime green glitter is from Sallys. I used Dolly Pink lip liner from NYX and mixed SNOB from MAC and Cancun Pink from NYX as my lip color. And mixed NYX Burgeois Pig with ELF pink passion for my blush and used Loreal Linear Intense as my top liner.
Hope you guys are having a wonderful day and week so far!
