Celebs who successfully ditched their over-the-top makeup for a natural look
After a year or so spent away from the limelight, Nicki Minaj is making a comeback, due in part to her brand new look. Gone are the rainbow wigs, the neon pink lips, and the clownish costumes. Nicki’s gone full-on sophisticated, and in doing so, she’s starting to win back some of the rap fans who felt alienated by her gimmicky pop image.
Nicki isn’t the only star who’s gone from trashy to classy, though. Many of her other outlandish peers, such as Snooki and Lady Gaga, have also opted for natural hair colours and minimal face paint. Some would attribute this to the “normcore” trend. Others would say that the gaudy makeup has run its course. Still others would say that it’s about time Western pop stars began following their Asian counterparts by wearing “no makeup” makeup.
Whatever the case, these people all look a lot better – if not a little more conventional – than they did prior to their make-unders.
