Nicki Minaj is on the cover of Elle's April issue without her infamous pink lipstick, outrageous hair and super fake eyelashes. Here's what Nicki had to say about her "make-under": 

"When I saw myself with barely any makeup at, it was such a… like, I'm so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it's hard. I feel that it's become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol' crazy lashes— you know, nothing— I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes."
