Nicki Minaj Moment 4 Life Official Makeup Look

Like I've said before, 
I loveeee Nicki.
Whenever I got Pink Friday,
I fell in love with Moment 4 Life.
So, of course I got excited about the video.
Which was amazing I'll add.
Especially the scene of her in the pink wig/green dress.
I thought she looked gorgeousssssss.
(When doesn't she?)
 So as soon as the video got over,
I ran into my makeup room to recreate.
Obviously I didn't get it up when I wanted too though.
Oh well!
I put a few of my own twists on it,
like the dramatic winged liner,
and the two pairs of lashes.
Other than that,

Is this lipstick not amazing or what?

Back to Basics - Foundation/Concealer

Turns out I do NOT like that foundation.
On camera you can't really tell,
but it's terrible.
It could be just old,
(even though I just bought it)
or just a terrible product.
Whatever the case,
this is how I do my foundation and concealer!

Back to Basics Series - Brows

I know my brows aren't the best,
but I loveee filling them in and shaping them.
Trust me, they REALLY make a look.
I also had the idea of a basic series,
like MissCaseyB.
It's gonna be a short series though,
and brows.
I may extend it and do basic eyeshadow and etc.
hopefully my tips help you!
AND the "dramatic" brow looks darker in person.
*Please note I do NOT have any other makeup on,
so excuse my bad skin!*



Products Used/Mentioned:
88 Palette
MAC - Espresso

I'm not the most perfect reviewer, as I don't do it much, but I'll give my word about Shiro Cosmetics.
I don't remember much about the shipping since it was around Christmas and such,
but I'm pretty sure it didn't take long.
You also get a tracking number,
a very important factor for me.
Website wise,
very easy to navigate through.
There's a sidebar to pick through samples, mini jars, full sized, and sets.
Everything is out in the open, which is good for people who don't want to look hard.
I messaged her and she practically answered right back.
(She's super sweet btw)
Packaging wise,
I like everything about the packaging besides the sifter.
I almost always take sifters out.
But they're convenient for people who do like them.
Just a personal preference.
Actually I think you can ask to not have them put on,
but I'm not sure so don't quote me!
Each one has a stick with individual ingredients, names, and whether it's lip safe or not.
Product wise,
The BIG Shabang!
Unlike a lot of other mineral eyeshadows, the product somewhat sticks together.
So it's more of a creamy texture rather than just a loose powder.
Rattata especially.
In the pictures I swatched dry.
(other than 1 labeled Rattata picture)
They would be extra intense because of that.
Also, I think they'd wear longer on the eye.
At least it seemed like it when I recorded a tutorial.
Obviously the bolder/intense colors last longer and are more pigmented,
that's just expected.
The lighter, shimmery, ones take some packing on if you want them to pop.
(You could also try putting a white base underneath)
But it's a good thing!
It's easier if you just want a hint of color for example.
So my verdict is an....
I'm def not an expert on reviewing,
but I tried to give you details of my thoughts.
So I hope this helps!
