Celebrity Inspired: Nicki Minaj Beez in the Trap

I love Nicki Minaj! And I love recreating her vibrant looks. This is my take on one of the looks from the Beez in the Trap music video. Its a rather simple look, perfect for summer!! I didn't have a color that was similar to the blue/aqua used in the video, so I did my best to mix two shadows together to get as close as possible.

I also had two mix two OCC Lip Tars together to get the opaque pastel pinkish-purple lip she was wearing. If you do not have the two lip tars I used, you can try mixing several other lipsticks/glosses together to get a similar color. Check your stash for MAC Saint Germain, Pink Popcorn, Blooming Lovely, Angel, etc - they are fairly similar shades.

Also, excuse my skin- its been pretty wrecked lately due to stress. But its starting to clear up :)

Oh, and she gives the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) a nice shoutout
...It's New York, Philly and the whole DMV!

  2. Looks like you had fun with this look!

  3. very nice recreation!! I love Nikki Manoj :) Although I don't think I would wear any of her styles in public.. very fun to remake though ;)

    1. I'd definitely wear the eye makeup in public, the lip definitely isnt for the faint of heart.
