Nicki Minaj is a chameleon in her appearance, with her ever growing collection of wigs and wardrobe. However, Nicki says her physical changes are due to clever makeup techniques, not plastic surgery as the world suspects.
30-year old Nicki Minaj is thought to have had nose surgery as well as cheek augmentation using fillers or fat in addition to some form of buttocks augmentation and breast implants (See Make Me Heal’s story on Nicki Minaj’s plastic surgery).
However, Nicki says the rumors are false and she hasn’t spent any time under the knife. Instead she credits special makeup application techniques, such as those used by drag queens for the dramatic changes in her appearance.
”I’ve never had surgery on my face. They’ll see contour and they’ll think you had surgery on your nose. No, no, no, look at RuPaul’s Drag Race and you’ll see how you can make your nose look any shape you want. When people see my makeup, they think all types of crazy things that I’m doing to my skin, but it’s makeup.”
Makeup clearly plays a role in Nicki’s look and she has partnered with MAC for her own line of lipstick.
