Nicki Minaj Inspired Makeup Look

Did you miss the OTT, crazy & fun make-up looks on here? I really missed doing them, and I'm aware they're the reason some people come here. I know, I know... even my Bollywood Babes series is hanging in limbo, just give me some time with that. Right now, I'm in the mood for spontaneity & quirk, maybe coz it's Halloween month! More make-up looks coming up.....very excited about one in particular (I just received some jewelry from Ebay, but I still need a few more items & bangs for my hair to complete the look.) No, two actually. I'm excited about 2 crazy OTT looks! =)
I didn't give this one much thought, and I think I should have polished the eyes a little. Oh-kay, enough babbling. Hope you like!

Eyes: Let's pretend we don't notice the slight unevenness, okies? Angled eyeliner brush was not the best choice. I wasn't thinking.
  • After using priming lids with Too Faced Shadow Insurance, I applied Inglot eyeshadows 361 & 362 up to crease. They're from my Inglot Candy Palette
  • With a matte black eyeshadow, winged outer corners & brought it in. I used Bourjois Intense Eyeshadow #10.
  • Highlighted the inner corners with The Body Shop biscuit Shimmer Cube from Lily Cole Collection 
  •  Lined top lash line with Maybelline Master Precise Ink Pen Liner & winged it right over the black eyeshadow, Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal on bottom lash line.
  • Lined top lash line with Maybelline Master Precise Ink Pen Liner & winged it right over the black eyeshadow, Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal on bottom lash line.
  • Eylure Katy Perry Lashes Oh My. Shown here 
Don't be scared by how doll-ish they look. Without the thick lashes, the style is very wearable. That black line makes me look like I have bigger eyelids. You can use a chocolate brown instead of black, and maybe smudge it a little.
Cheeks: The same 2 eyeshadows I used on the eyes. Told you they can be used as blush. Also, The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzer (you must be sick of me using only this bronzer. I promise I'll go get a new one. Today!)
Face: MAC Prep + Prime Line Filler, The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream, Make Up For Ever HD Foundtion, Lakmé  Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick, The Body Shop Loose Powder.
 Lips: MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick (I will post the pics of this in a separate post)
Pink brush with bow: Too Faced Powder Pouf Brush 
Earrings: Forever 21 
Perfume: Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy 
Blue Velcro Rollers: I got these from GK M-Block Market in New Delhi. No, they weren't available in pink =)

Sometimes things can go wrong right before the camera timer goes off.....

My hilarious home friends would say "This is the real"- Meaning: Candid shot where you're not your sophisticated self. The hair...the face....haha!

I'm starting to really like Nicki Minaj, I think she's cool & we have similar past life experiences. I just LOVE her songs! I could listen to them all.day.long. Listening to Marilyn Monroe as I'm writing this. My favorite quotes by her:
  • "Don't EVER let anyone talk you out of wearing pink. Pink is your color, okay? Pink is gonna keep you happy for the rest of your life. Pink is gonna give you power, energy, and even the girliness that you need." ~ Advice she gave to 2 little girls on the Ellen Show.
  • "Always be successful outside of a man."
 Yeah, let's all rap that in the shower this weekend!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
