Recreate This: Nicki Minaj Viva Glam Promo Ad

Hello ladies! Thank you so much for the overwhelming response on my post on the Viva Glam Nicki lipsitick. Since I got the lippie I've been wanting to recreate Nicki's look in the promo ad for MAC Viva Glam toger with Ricky Martin.

I tried my best in recreating her look and this is the closest that I could get. As I don't have a bright eye shadow collection, I resulted to using my e.l.f. 144 Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette and mixed certain colors to achieve the look. My lighting kinda suck in the photos but I hope you all like it! :)



 Face/Cheeks:
Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation in Natural Beige
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles in Medium
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
Clinique Bronzer in Sunkissed
MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft and Gentle - highlight the nose, top of the cheekbone, Cupid's bow, forehead

Brows:
NYX Eyeshadow in Rootbeer


Eyes:
Urban Decay Primer Potion Original
NYX Jumbo Pencil - Milk - use as base, put all over the lid and below the bottom lash line and bl;end with your finger
E.l.f. 144 Eyeshadow Palette
  • With a flat shadow brush, take shadow 1 and pat it all over the lid
  • With the same brush, take shadow 2 and put it on top of shadow 1
  • With a blending brush, I used Sigma E25, pick up lightly shadow 5 and place it on the crease, lightly blending out the harsh lines created by the green shadows
  • With a large fluffy brush, take shadow 6 and apply beneath the brow bone as highlight
  • Pick up shadow 3 and mix it with shadow 4 with a clean flat shadow brush to get the right shade of blue and place it beneath the lower lash line and lightly wing it out
NYC Falses Lashes in 973 Black - I didn't have any lashes similar to what Nicki was wearing so I used my favorite full lashes. Nicki was wearing a really spiky demi lashes that elongated her eyes

Milani Liquif'eye Eyeliner in Black - line the upper water line
Maybelline the Falsies Black Drama Waterproof 

Lips:
MAC Viva Glam Nicki


That's it for my recreation of Nicki Minaj's Viva Glam promo ad look. Let me know what you think! :)
