YouTube splendor vlogger and currently-appointed Marc Jacobs Beauty worldwide artistry marketing consultant Nikkie de Jager, greater usually known as NikkieTutorials, posted a new video on April 20 (wink wink) that makes a strong case for the rapper to consider a facet career as her professional makeup-educational narrator.
“So back after I said I changed into gonna crew up with Marc Jacobs Beauty as their global artistry guide, I warned you that I was approximately to perform a little very special initiatives with them,” Nikkie says on the start of the video, telling viewers that she’ll be developing a complete-coverage appearance with a couple of the logo’s new merchandise, Accomplice Concealer & Touch-Up Stick and Accomplice Instant Blurring Powder. “And due to the fact that they’re known as Accomplice, I need a partner to assist me out a bit.” That’s while Snoop’s unmistakable, buttery voice chimes in.
“First matters first, we gotta clip that hair up, you understand me? Clip the hair to get the hair out of the manner so she can get the ones edges together whilst she starts popping that makeup,” he explains as Nikkie clips multiple free pieces of hair out of the manner. She then starts making use of a primer, or as Snoop calls it, “the roots.”
As Nikkie begins applying basis, we’re treated to an inset shot of Snoop sporting what appears to be a white bathrobe, status at the mic in a smoky (of direction) studio. She then introduces the Accomplice Concealer, and Snoop advises her to “move up beneath the attention with it,” “get that brow,” and “get that chin ball.”
After some contouring, Nikkie brings out the Accomplice powder, and Snoop begins getting a bit bossy approximately technique. “Lightly up below the eyes. Lightly, Nikkie, gently,” he urges. And he can’t help but specific his appreciation for the product’s design. “Notice how her face structure is so profoundly accurate with the brush.

His enthusiasm is returned full-throttle for Nikkie’s highlighter software, though. “Highlight!” he shouts, blunt visibly in hand. “This is whilst she sprinkles that spotlight on in order that way, from a distance, it seems like she got glare or glitter on her face, like an actual superstar.”
Once Nikkie wraps up the look with some lip gloss, she exhibits the before-and-after, inspiring Snoop to say, “Oh, wow. Amazing. Straight up, you probably did that. I’m astonished, I’m proud, I’m happy to be a part of it. When you close up your eyes, you look like a butterfly. It’s lovely.”
