Nicki Minaj knows how to work the red carpet! The rapper has made her fair share of beauty statements these past few years, but we think her glamorous look on the 2015 Grammys red carpet may just be the best yet.
Nicki Minaj, 32, has been known to wear some over-the-top looks. But in the past year, she’s really pared down her style to show off her more fashionable, glamorous side. Case in point: her look for the Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. on Feb. 8. We loved her dark and bold smokey eye — keep reading for more details.
Nicki Minaj At Grammy Awards — Get Her Smokey Eye
A few years ago, we would have never expected Nicki to look this glam on the red carpet. But we have to say that Nicki is totally rocking this look! We were especially taken with her bold eye makeup by Joyce Bonelli. The smokey eye with a defined and sweeping cat eye made her look sexy and sophisticated. Her hair, by Oscar James, was slicked back in a pompadour and was a sleek compliment to her sexy and sophisticated Tom Ford dress.
To get a look similar to Nicki’s, it’s important to use quality eye shadow that’s heavily pigmented. We suggest using the LORAC PRO Palette. We love that these shadows all compliment each other and blend beautifully together. Simply take the darkest shadow in the palette and swipe all over the mobile lid. Then, blend the color out into the crease of the eye. Finally, line the eyes with a gel liner and swipe on some mascara.
So tell us what you think, HollywoodLifers! Are you loving Nicki’s look as much as we are? Be sure to comment below and share your thoughts!
