Nicki Minaj Unveils Nude Lipsticks for Mac Cosmetics
Raptress Nicki Minaj is once again teaming up with MAC Cosmetics. The enigmatic hip-pop star announced her latest collaboration with the brand earlier today via Instagram, where she showed off two new lipsticks from her upcoming Nicki Nudes collection. Reportedly set to go on sale next month, the limited-edition line will feature 12 naturally-hued lipsticks, including the two you see below; The Pinkprint, a creamy, peachy nude and Nicki Nude, a creamy mocha nude.
With summer in full bloom, nude hues are now more popular than ever. From lips, to heels, to lingerie, women are loving flesh tone shades, and the latest beauty brand to acknowledge the trend is black|Up Cosmetics, who recently introduced their own line of nude nail lacquers for darker skin tones.
As the mercury begins to rise we’ve gone from creamy nude lips to hot, bright colors. The color of summer is bold, bright orange.
Take two tips to the makeup counter with you to find your one and only orange!
What lipstick texture are you looking for? Bold and dry matte, a smooth and creamy texture or an easy to wear lip stain?
What is color intensity do you desire? A soft sheer display of color, a medium wash of color that will match accessories like earrings or a bag, or do you want your lip color to be the stand out color in the room?
Once you’ve decided on the look that you want it is much easier to find the perfect color.
If you’ve got a creamy, honeyed skin tone opt for a true orange with a zesty citrus undertone. Olive skin, try a red-orange that will soften in tone against your skin yet stand out against a radiant complexion. Medium brown skin tones should try true orange value to its undertone, this shade will pop against beautiful bronzed skin tones. Deep chocolate skin tones should try an orange with a deep pink saturation to is base color wear with matte skin to perfectly compliment your beautiful and richly pigmented skin tone.
Will you dare to wear the trend this summer?

You don’t need to pile on layers of color to get this season’s hottest make up trend. Get ready to go nude! It’s all about enhancing your natural beauty with neutral shades that highlight what you already have.
* Use a bronzer instead of blush to give your face a just tanned, natural looking glow.
* Skip the lipstick and go with a sheer gloss or find a shade that matches the natural color of your lips. You can also try dabbing a little bit on concealer on for a sexy nude lip.
* Naked make up doesn’t have to be all about boring beiges! Play around with colors from peaches to pinks to bronzes that highlight your natural skin color.
It’s that time again ladies, where we decide if the brownsistas look deserves a definite glam or an unquestionable slam. This week its the one and only Ms. Keri Hilson. She debuted a new look at the 41st annual NAACP Image awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. Hilson traded in her normal short cut for long black locks, while wearing a sophisticated all black gown designed by Christian Sirano. Her shoe choice could have been different but overall she deserves a glam. Her makeup was all sorts of awesomeness to me, I loved her smokey, sultry eye, nude lip, and eyeshadow which complimented her skin tone. So what do you think Slam or Glam?
