Nicki Minaj’s Dramatic Makeunder

Last night's 2014 MTV Movie Awards was full of hits (hat tip to Zac Efron’s six-pack) and misses (we’re looking at you, Pia Mia Perez).

But one celeb totally (and unexpectedly) killed it: Nicki Minaj. Best known for her over the top makeup choices, the rapper swapped her go-to combo of hot pink lips and pastel wigs for a cat-eye, dewy skin, and a hair color actually found in nature. To copy Minaj's gorgeous look IRL, try Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liquid Liner in Black. The smudgeproof liquid liner creates a laser-like inky line.

Dressed in a black Alexander McQueen number, she completed the flawless look with statement-making gold jewelry. (She even managed to upstage feline internet phenomenon Grumpy Cat, who walked the red carpet in a très chic oversized, floppy hat.)

After years of Lady Gaga-esque red carpet shenanigans, we are totally loving Nicki’s less-is-more vibe. What do you think?
