5 days of Nicki Minaj-Look 5 Pink Friday Roman Reloaded

This is the final look of this mini series that I put together.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.  The final look was based off the Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album cover. It was such a crazy fun look because of all that was going on.  The look was very abstract with all the different lines used.  Although I didn't have any face paint on hand (just bottle of acrylic paint) I opt for eye shadow instead.  But using paint & a dry bush would have given the brush strokes as seen on Nicki compared to using powder products.  None the less this is a really fun look that you probably wouldn't wear on a regular day, maybe for halloween though?

-1st Edition 120 palette

-Primer potion in Eden
-24/7 liquid liner in Perversion

5 days of Nicki Minaj-Look 4 Vibe Magazine

For this look I was inspired by Nicki's Vibe Magazine pictures.  I remembered this look because I bought the magazine last year & this look was posted right on the cover.  It has fun bright colors with feather accents.  This look may not be for every one but it's definitely eye catching.  I traded the blue feathers glued to the outer part of her right eye for feather lashes instead.  Check back next week Friday for the final look for this 5 look series.

5 days of Nicki Minaj-Look 3 Stupid H*%

Due to my skin braking out randomly I had skip filming/posting this look last week.  I also hadn't worn makeup for about a good 2 weeks to let my skin rest.  So this week is a two for 1, you'll get both looks 3 & 4 this friday.  This look was inspired by the Stupid Hoe music video.  Taking the pastel blue & leopard look (where she's in the cage) I merged those looks together creating something fun.  On a side note I do believe they used a cheetah in the music video but drew leopard spots on her.


Product I Used:

Urban decay:
-24/7 eye pencil in Eldorado  
-24/7 liquid liner in Perversion

-Paint pot in chilled on ice
-Powder plus foundation NC40
-Eye shadow in goldmine & amber lights

-Amazonian clay blush in blissful

-Lip butter in Cupcake

Make Up For Ever

Shoedazzle: Edith

Recent purchase:

Name: Edith
Color: Coral
6" Heel 1.75" Platform
Faux Suede

My thoughts:
I took the shoes out of the box & went to try them on. I was a little disappointed that it was a bit wide for my feet. Which I hadn't experienced with any of my other (Shoedazzle) shoes.  The spikes are actually secured through the material so you won't have to worry about them falling off.  On the other hand the small studs are glued on.

The sole of the shoe is also slightly different for my last pair.  I'm not sure if this is only for certain pairs or if this is for all shoes.  The "grip" on the sole now has a faux velvety texture.  And the insole has more padding as well.  It has been sewn & glued compared to the Alica heels which were just glued down.  Despite them being a little wider I actually decided to keep the shoes.  It didn't seem worth trying to exchange/return the pair.  I also might try to see if inserts would help.
