Makeover Monday: Nicki Manaj Inspired Makeover

Nicki Manaj always has flawless makeup with beautiful skin and big lashes. Today’s makeover monday is Nicki Manaj inspired on her more subtle and not-so-neon eye makeup days. I chose my friend and neighbor to be my makeover monday victim because whenever I look at her, she reminds me of Nicki Manaj. Maybe it’s her facials structure….or the shape of her eyes that remind me. Either way, I knew that this Nicki Manaj inspired makeup post was going to be fun and dramatic.

So…here we go! I can’t wait for you to see the after pic!




Like I said, my friend has beautiful bone structure, and her skin is flawless! But I am still excited for her after pic.



wait for it…..


wait for it….




You would never have known by the before or the after picture that she is an amazing mom of six kids. This friend of mine Is a mom rockstar. I am so glad she said yes to being on my blog for this makeover. What do you think of her makeup? Nicki Manaj-ish?
