Look out, Martha Stewart – it looks like you might not be Snoop Dogg’s only adorably unexpected sidekick. YouTube beauty vlogger and just lately appointed Marc Jacobs Beauty global artistry adviser Nikkie de Jager, more commonly known as NikkieTutorials, published a new video tutorial on April 20 (wink wink) that makes a strong circumstance for the rapper to look at a side profession as her public makeup-tutorial narrator.
“So back when I said I got gonna team up with Marc Jacobs Beauty as their global artistry adviser, I warned you that I was about to do some very special jobs with them,” Nikkie says at the beginning of the training video, telling audiences that she’ll be developing a full-coverage look with several the brand’s services, Accomplice Concealer & Touch-Up Stay and Accomplice Instant Blurring Powder. “And since they’re called Accomplice, I want an accomplice to helping me out a little bit.” That’s when Snoop’s unmistakable, buttery speech chimes in.
“First things first, we gotta clip that hair up, you realize me? Clip the head of hair to find the hair taken care of so she can get those sides together when she start popping that cosmetic,” he explains as Nikkie clips several loose pieces of hair taken care of. She then commences making use of a primer, or as Snoop calls it, “the root base.”
As Nikkie starts applying groundwork, we’re treated for an inset shot of Snoop sporting what appears to be a white bathrobe, ranking at the mic in a smoky (of course) studio. She then introduces the Accomplice Concealer, and Snoop advises her to “go up under the eye with it,” “get that forehead,” and “get that chin ball.”
After some contouring, Nikkie brings about the Accomplice powder, and Snoop begins obtaining a little bossy about technique. “Lightly up under the eyes. Lightly, Nikkie, casually,” he urges. And he can’t help but communicate his appreciation for the product’s design. “Notice how her face framework is so profoundly accurate with the brush. It just will fit the brush properly, as though the brush was designed for her face.”
But it’s not just the brush Snoop is impressed with. As Nikkie begins applying eye shadow to her crease, he gushes, “See how that taste go? It’s looking such as a work of art right now. Nikkie, you looking such as a masterpiece of design right now, lady. Just do it now. I’m loving this. That is just like a painting by Picasso.”
After applying a wing of black liquid liner, Nikkie’s audio cuts back in, allowing her to inform Snoop that she’s going to “smoke it out” with some shadow. “I’ll join you,” he says, clarifying, “What she means by ’smoke it out’ is not what I’m doing right now.”
Although Snoop is adoring the appearance, he gets just a little squicked out when she starts lining her water line with a pale green pencil. “Now that’s the part I don’t like, this part the following when you gotta get, like, profound under the eyelid,” he says. “That’s delicate for me personally.”
His excitement is back again full-throttle for Nikkie’s highlighter program, though. “Highlight!” he shouts, blunt visibly at hand. “This is when she sprinkles that high light on so like that, from a distance, it appears like she got glare or glitter on her behalf face, such as a real celebrity.”
Once Nikkie wraps up the look with some lip gloss, she reveals the before-and-after, inspiring Snoop to state, “Oh, wow. Amazing. Straight up, you have that. I’m astonished; I’m proud; I’m pleased to become a part of it. Once you close your eyes, you appear to be a butterfly. It’s beautiful.”
He’s not wrong. To see how the whole look came together — and of course, to enjoy all nine minutes of Snoop Dogg’s commentary — you can watch the video below.
