Nicki Minaj "Anaconda" Music Video Makeup

Nicki Minaj's latest music video offers plenty of juicy booty shaking, but also a fabulously beautiful makeup look on our lead protagonist. Nicki's face was very contoured and highlighted bringing out her bone structure, her eyes were a super sultry bronze and gold, and her lips were a rich pink. Although my coloring is so very different from Nicki's, I wanted to do my take on the look.

Keep reading to see what I used, and how to recreate this look with my video tutorial!

I love how this turned out, if I do say so myself. The makeup is obviously quite heavy, but you have to remember this is essentially on a movie set, where everyone is doing a lot of moving around, sweating, with makeup artists on hand to do constant touch-ups. Definitely feel free to just take elements from this look and use it as you see fit for whatever occasion you decide to wear this to.
