Watch NikkieTutorials Doing Jade Thirlwall’s Makeup


In October, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall launched hers Astrology themed eyeshadow palette with Beauty Bay. Featuring both matte and shimmer shadows, the palette contains an impressive 42 high-quality pigmented powders, from easy-to-wear bronze and rose gold to shimmering purple and teal. “[The palette] it works for everyone depending on how adventurous you are: from natural and nude tones to neon and bright colors, “Thirlwall told POPSUGAR of the launch.” I wanted to convey every single part of my beauty personality, I suppose. ”

To celebrate the palette, Thirlwall made an appearance on NikkieTutorial’s YouTube channel (which in addition to launching its product line, coincidentally also has a Beauty Bay eyeshadow palette). Nikkie got a chance to do the pop star’s makeup, starting with her Nimya by NikkieTutorials skincare products to prep her skin, followed by Thilrwall’s favorite foundation (MAC Face & Body) and of course the Jade Thirlwall x Beauty Bay color palette (£ 30).

During the 24-minute video, NikkieTutorial (whose real name is Nikkie de Jager) and Thirlwall talked about everything from makeup to pressures to be famous and the biggest misconceptions about being a member of a female band. “I think as women it’s pretty tough in the pop industry anyway, and as a girl band you know it seemed like we consistently had reason to prove that we write music and you know, when we’re sexualized it should be up on our terms,” ​​Thilrwall told de Jager. And I also think that even for female bands, you get the “model for women” type of label pretty quickly, which is very flattering but there’s also a bit of pressure with that. ”

When it came to their beauty jokes, we learned that Thirlwall’s fascination with makeup stemmed from her mother, who received visits from Mrs. Avon during her growth, as well as from the drag artist and drag culture. Thirlwall also talked about her biggest beauty misadventures, which she cited as returning during Little Mix’s X Factor days, particularly when she dyed her brows blue and purple to match her blue and purple hair. “I don’t know what I was giving, but it wasn’t nice,” Thirlwall laughed.

Eventually, de Jager gave Thirlwall an amazing sunset eye look by using the fiery oranges, yellows and fuchsia in the palette, adding some crystals for good measure. To see the look and hilarious interview of the girls, check out the full video above.
