Nicki Minaj says her skin would definitely “break out” if she didn’t remove her make-up.

The 31-year-old star is known for her blemish-free appearance and bold make-up.

In order to keep herself looking fresh-faced Nicki relies on the cold beverage which contains extracts of the succulent plant species.

“I definitely wouldn’t say [my complexion is] flawless! If I fall asleep with my make-up on, I’ll definitely have a breakout,” she admitted to British magazine Look.

“And I’ve been drinking aloe vera water – it doesn’t taste nice, but it works!”

Part of Nicki’s recognisable exterior is her long lashes. Opening up about how she applies them the quirky musician also revealed the reason why she goes for the particular look.

“I always make sure I have perfected my eyeliner before I apply my lashes. I have really small eyes so a liquid liner helps to open them up and disguise the lash line,” she recommended.

Nicki makes sure to protect her face from the winter air when out and about. She credits one product in particular for being her beauty hero.

“It’s so cold in New York at the moment that I’m wrapping up my skin with Eucerin Dry Skin Intensive Lotion 10% Cutaneous Emulsion Urea. It’s great for sensitive skin,” she added.

The singer is set to launch her second fragrance Minajesty. This follows on from her debut scent Pink Friday, but Nicki insists the smell is completely different this time round.

“I’ve never smelled anything like it! It’s feminine with fresh florals and peach, but then there are vanilla and musk notes that give it a bit of mystery and darkness,” she hinted.
