Mac has done it again and released another fantastic celebrity Viva Glam campaign. Viva Glam Nicki hit stores February 16 and what better way to homage to an artist with such wacky style then to dupe her colorful look? I love that Nicki Minaj isn't afraid to play with color, and if I had her gorgeous skin I would be fearless with makeup too! To dupe this look, I pulled out my most colorful palette- the Pop Beauty Neon palette. After priming my eye, I patted on the neon green all over my lid and then blended MAC's Velvet Moss eyeshadow very far into the crease. I added shimmery Inglot shadow in 395 right under my browbone. To get that rich blue under my eyes, I ran NYX jumbo pencil in Cobalt under my eye and powdered with a teal blue Lorac shadow from my Lorac shadow box. I used my favorite Miss Ardo lashes in #5 matched with MAC's Chromaline in Black Black eyeliner with a heavy wing. No Nicki look is complete without her signature Grey enlarging contacts. The rest of the look is simple, using MAC Ambering Rose on the hallows of my cheek and of course, Viva Glam Nicki on my lips.
Viva Glam Nicki is a warmer, vibrant pink. Viva Glam Gaga is a lot cooler, and more blue-based and MAC's Pink Noveau is a tad more violet. The texture is creamy and the color is quite opaque. The pink doesn't lean too cool/warm so it will look fabulous on almost every skintone. Retailing at about $14.50, Viva Glam Nicki will be in stores until February 16, 2013 and all proceeds with benefit the MAC AIDS Fund. Bottom Line? What a fabulous pink (just like Queen Nicki herself), how could you possibly pass this up? Pictured below is me doing my best Nicki Minaj impression. Do you have Viva Glam Nicki?
