October is our pink pick month, so we have to give props to Nicki Minaj — our favorite Black Barbie who loves to sport a pink pout.
Nicki Minaj sets her own beauty trends with makeup. She rocks bold, bright colors that make a statement — bold lips, and bright, blended eye shadows in flamboyant colors. At the 2010 BET Hip Hop Honors Awards (where she won 3 awards), Nicki painted her lips shocking pink-plum.
For this look, try using a lip tar — long-lasting and ultra-pigmented. A little goes a long way and produces ultra-glam, vivid, dramatic lips.

A few days later Nicki appeared on the David Letterman show. Different hair, same lips.
For an easy-to-wear pink option opt for a cream lipstick that’s a shade deeper.
