Nicki Minaj: A super sexy yet simple makeup and hair trend

Thats right world!! The queen has done it again with her new seductive video entitled Lookin A#@ N$%^&. Not only does Nicki Minaj look drop dead gorgeous, so does her simple yet modern makeup and hair. The Barbie chose to go with a simple but heavy eye liner under the bottom eye lid. This technique is simple yet very successful when trying to make a big, bold statement. This is a clear depiction of the entitled track. Minaj also does a very easy yet classy hair choice for the video. A long ponytail gives her the energy need to fuse this track. Ladies you don’t have to be a member of Young Money to conquer these trends though. If you want to achieve the same blockbuster look as the number one Barbie just follow this few tips.

  1. Start with a clean face. After cleansing, you may want to start with a concealer and or foundation as a base. This will set the tone for your look.
  2. Make sure that you have the right type of products for your skin type. Everyone has a different type of skin that reacts to products differently.
  3. Start with the bottom eye lid and begin the line. Go back over the line for the correct level of thickness. The more you go over, the more prominent the line will become.
  4. After lining, start to go outside the crescent in a upward motion. Imagine doing the cat eye look but via the bottom lid.
  5. Pair with the perfect set of lashes and cute lip to seal the deal with this  look!!

The hair aspect is also simple as well ladies. Just remember, do not over brush your edges because that can lead to extreme breakage. Use a hair pomade as moisturizer and to lock in your Nicki Minaj look. Add hair extensions for a full ponytail.
