Viva Glam Nicki FOTD feat NARS Rated R eyeshadow duo

I fell in love with Nicki Minaj's super bright and fun makeup look on the promo pics for the Viva Glam Nicki so I decided I would attempt to recreate it using NARS Rated R eyeshadow duo.

The shades didn't have the same ultra neon edge that Nicki's do but it was still fun to do!

To get the look:
Mixture of NYX Jumbo eye pencils in Rocky Mountain Green and Milk on the lid as a base
The green side from NARS Rated R duo patted on to the lid then blend out the edge with a clean blending brush.
Next apply MAC Humid eyeshadow to the outer v
Blend MAC Wedge eyeshadow in the crease
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Electric Blue along the bottom lashline as a base
The blue shade from NARS Rated R on the bottom lashline
Sugarpill Tako eyeshadow on the inner corner
Revlon Matte Kohl eyeliner in White along the water line (best white kohl pencil ever!)
Illamasqua Precision Ink liner in Abyss along the top lashline
Rimmel Scandaleyes mascara on lashes.

Some false lashes would have finished this look off but I didn't have any that were extreme enough. 

I finished off the look with Illamasqua powder blush in Tweak on the cheeks and Viva Glam Nicki (of course!) on lips lined with NYX lip liner in Toast. 

Not a look I'd wear out but great for a Nicki Minaj costume or an 80's party!


  1. I LOVE this look on you! You should definitely wear it out and about!

  2. Wow, this is a bright and beautiful look! ♥
    I love this combination of bright shadows and this Nicki lipstick!

  3. This is gorgeous, you did an amazing job and your version is more wearable than Nicki Minaj's Love it!

  4. I love how there's a pop of colour on the lashline. You have great blending skills! <3

  5. wow!!this is cool..the neon green and the blending around it has come out perfect!!

  6. I love this look and I'm so jealous. You have the beautiful colouring to work this Ahalya!!!

  7. Thanks Juliana! I would wear the eye out or the lips out but not both together because I'm not adventurous enough for that yet!

    Thanks Natalie :) I love the promo image and it doesn't look too OTT for a Nicki Minaj look.

    Megan: Thank you :) I think the tones in the Rated R duo make the look more wearable than using the full on neons.

    Thanks Michelle! Lol this whole look is a pop of colour but bright shades on the lashline is one of my fave things to do.

    gigglegirliegang: Thank you! I was worried the blending wouldn't work but MAC Humid blends realy well with most greens and yellows.

    Vita: Thank you :) I'd love to see how these kind of colours would look against your skin tone. EOTD perhaps? Ps: I'm completely envious of your beautiful green eyes!

  8. Really love this! It looks great on you!
