Makeup pro to the stars Tatiana Ward first gained fame via YouTube and Instagram before working with major celebs like Nicki Minaj, Brandy and K. Michelle. In an interview with Sophisticate’s Black Hair, Ward revealed the secrets behind some of her most notable star clients’ makeup moves. Check out what she revealed about Nicki Minaj’s look for her Minajesty fragrance campaign…

“I worked with French makeup artist Charlotte Willer on this shoot and we were going for a fairytale/queen look. With the Minajesty fragrance campaign, we did what Nicki is known for—strong, bright colors. Nicki has these beautiful high cheekbones and they’re awesome! We did a muted lip but those bright greens and yellows on the eyes were just beautiful. Nicki likes an extreme cat eye. No matter what, she’s going to want winged eyeliner—it’s standard Nicki!”
