Nicki Minaj Skincare Secrets and Routine

I take my makeup off immediately. If I don’t, I’ll wake up and be like, “Oh my God!” because I’ll have breakouts.

[Skintimate Extra Gentle Moisturizing Cream Shave] It smells so good!

If you don’t bring me Dove, we’ll probably be fighting. I have super sensitive skin, and it’s very gentle.

Nicki Minaj Makeup Secrets and Routine

[I wear M.A.C Pro Longwear fluid foundation on both my face and legs]. If you change your makeup a lot and want coverage without wearing something heavy, put that one on. It’s really lightweight

My eyes [are the most high maintenance part of my beauty routine], because they’re the one thing I need my makeup artist to do. I don’t have the patience, my hands shake, and I mess everything up. So my makeup artist has to do my brows and lids and lashes. Everyone knows I’m a lash girl by now. When I don’t have my lashes, I feel naked.

I used to wear the individual lashes, but those became so time-consuming. We needed to figure out an easier way, so my makeup artist has been experimenting with cutting lash strips in half and piling them on top of each other.

I contour by using a lighter shade of foundation under my eyes instead of concealer. I take it down in a triangle by the sides of my nose, and then apply blush on top. I don’t do round, rosy cheeks; that’s for old people. It’s played out. I like the color to be like a diagonal line across the cheekbone up to the temples. It really changes the shape of my face.

I can’t see myself without pink lipstick. I can go without it for a couple days, but if there was no more pink lipstick in the world, I’d be useless. Seriously. And a good white pencil for under the eye, just inside the rim. It helps you look like you’re on.

[On my days off] I’ll still wear pink lipstick, and maybe some lip conditioner.

My nails used to be, like, a mile long, with all these crazy designs on them. The reason I stopped doing that was because one time, when I was driving from New York to Atlanta, I hit my hand on something and it ripped off the nail and the skin. I had to pull over I was in so much pain and had to stay in a $50 motel where the truckers sleep. I vowed I would never get long nails again.

Color, color, color. When in doubt, add color. Then, add some more.

Pink lipstick! I did an amazing project with M.A.C. and created my Pink 4 Friday shade. It was a great experience.

Nicki Minaj Hair Secrets and Routine

[I fell in love with wigs] when I met a person who could do them. I don’t want a wig that looks like a wig; I want one that could pass for a weave. And I have an amazing hairdresser [Terrence Davidson]. I could literally tell him to put a jukebox on my head, and he would figure it out.

Nicki Minaj Diet Secrets and Routine

I’m naturally petite, but I definitely struggle with keeping those extra pounds off When I need to lose a few, I just cut out sugar and starch.

Nicki Minaj Fitness Secrets and Routine

I hate working out. I can’t stand being on a treadmill. That mentally irks me.
