CeleBeauty Watch: Get Nicki Minaj’s Understated Sexy Look From the 2014 MTV Movie Awards



There is nothing like a make-under. The once over-the-top pink-lipped, black/blue/green/yellow/pink haired Barbie that we love to watch has become something of an elegant understated beauty. With an edge of course. No more Pepto Bismol pink lips and gargantuan rainbow bright hair for this hip hop hottie. No, Nicki Minaj has morphed into quite the stylish diva.

We have been watching Minaj’s ascent into cool classicism, and love it. We are particularly in love with her ability to take a red carpet by storm with her curves, waves (hair)  and less-is-more makeup.
