Fierce Friday: Get the Blues like Nicki Minaj

Fierce Friday: Get the Blues like Nicki Minaj

No, we are not talking about B. B. King blues.  We are talking beauty blues…

It’s Fierce Friday!  One of the fiercest makeup looks I have seen of late is a blast of blue eyeshadow.  Beyoncé was working it on her Daze and Confused cover and Zoe Saldana was wearing a banging blue eye when she covered Russian Harper’s Bazaar.

However, working the blue eyeshadow the hardest is our girl Nicki Minaj.  I suppose when one thinks of Nicki we think ‘THINK PINK”,  but when she’s rocking the blue hair paired with her baby blues, she is a stand-out.

To get Nicki’s look, be sure apply foundation for a flawless face and highlight with a pale pink blush.

For eyes, prep with a primer like Too Faced Shadow Insurance, then line with your favorite black liner.  Apply blue shadow up to the crease, finish with a nude matte shadow on the brow bone.  Groom brows and generously  slick your lips with M.A.C Nicki Minaj Pink Friday 4 lipstick.

Apply faux lashes or volumizing mascara and you are good to go.  Well, except for the blue hair.
