The 'Beez In The Trap' rapper goes make-up free in a stunning new shoot for the publication.

Nicki Minaj has posed for a dramatic new photoshoot in which she wears very little make-up and none of her trademark over-the-top wigs.

The 'Starships' singer says she felt "naked" posing with such a simple look, and has joked about being parted from her pink lipstick for the Elle magazine photo shoot.

"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," Nicki explained, regarding her make-under for the magazine's April edition. "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," the R&B star continued. "So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes."
