Pure magic always seems to happen when the worlds of beauty and music collide, think Mary J. Blige’s MAC collaboration or Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Launch.
The latest epic music and beauty mash-up? Leikeli47 and Milk Makeup.
The Brooklyn-born musician has teamed up with the makeup line, to create a video for the first single, M I L K, of her debut album Wash & Set. In case you may have forgot, Attitude, also on the album, plays in this season’s Insecure premier, Hella Great.
Since performing at the brand’s launch party back in 2016 and appearing in the Live Your Look Campaign, Leikeli has become a part of the Milk family. “Milk Makeup and I are more family than anything. The Milk aesthetic stomps all over the so-called ‘edge’ most claim to live on,” she says.
The video, which is part music video part makeup tutorial, takes place in what one can only assume is an epic warehouse party that celebrates individuality. Both men and women are seen sporting glowing skin, beaming highlights and epic bedazzled lips throughout the video.
Despite concealing her face with various masks, she wants people to focus on her music, Leikeli still loves to play with makeup; bold liquid lipsticks, glossy lids and dramatic winged liner are just some of the ways the rapper keeps her beauty look fresh as seen in this amazing video.
Leikeli47’s debut album “Wash & Set” is out today, September 8th.
