Nicki Minaj "Y U Mad" Makeup Inspiration

Hello dolls!!! The other day I came across the "Y U Mad" video that features Nicki Minaj, and needless to say I thought that Nicki looked EXTREMELY pretty in this vid....even when she wore the blonde Tunechi dreads with pink tips lol. As such I decided to try and mimmick the makeup look that she wore through out the video, which consisted of a pastel orange winged lid, heavy eye liner, mauve colored lips, extremely contoured face, and a light touch of blush.


[DISCLAIMER: THE LOOK IS NOT EXACT...THIS IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH USING THE PRODUCTS THAT I HAD. I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP ARTIST AND DO NOT CLAIM TO BE.]

 Here is the look that we are going for:
