The Daily Grind Video

Barbie dolls have inspired girls around the world to learn how to get glammed, but it seems like Nicki Minaj has made sure to go above and beyond.

The Pink Friday rapper/singer recently covered Instyle UK, and she talked about staying beautiful through healthy foods, her Barbie-sinpired makeup, and branding her perfume!

Check out snippets from the interview below:

On healthy eating:
“As soon as I’m supposed to diet, that’s when I eat more. Before the MTV video awards, I was trying to lose weight, but my uncle did a barbecue and we had this amazing potato salad that I couldn’t turn down. I ended up gaining five pounds.”

On looking flawless:
“I don’t go for facials. I’ve realized that so much of what appears on your skin has to do with what goes in your body. I always take my make-up off with MAC’s cleansing wipes. They could take down a house! I use a moisturizing cleanser and I never towel-dry my face; I let it air-dry instead. I also keep my hair off my face when I’m sleeping. That keeps my skin smooth.”

On her Barbie-inspired makeup:
“I always wear pink lips. It’s a Barbie look and I love it. I tend to stick to the same eye look- a big black lash and a big black liner. I like to layer my lashes and sometimes add glitter to my eyelids.”

On branding her new perfume:
“I knew if there was a pink wig on the bottle [of my new scent], it would be synonymous with my persona. When they came back with a sketch, I nearly passed out – it’s perfect.”
