Nicki Minaj is he new cover girl for Sophisticates Black Hair’s March/April 2012 issue.

Here is an excerpt:

FIERCE
For Nicki, no beauty routine is complete without the addition of faux eyelashes—just look at her gorgeous gaze in this snapshot from the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards! “When I don’t have my lashes, I feel naked,” she reveals. And while Nicki used to wear individual lashes, she found the application process a bit time consuming and decided to take a different approach. Her trick for rocking a fierce lash look? “My makeup artist has been experimenting with cutting lash strips in half and piling them on top of each other,” explains Nicki. The beauty lesson here? Don’t be afraid to try new things!
