Barbie Doll Look

When I think Barbie, I think pink, silver, glitter, and glam. Here’s my take on a Barbie Doll look:

Barbie Doll Look

Pink and Silver Cut-Crease

The Breakdown:


NYX Color-Correcting Concealer in Yellow

NYX Concealer

1. Cover dark circles under your eyes with a yellow color-correcting concealer. The one I used from NYX completely masks the bags under my eyes, even the day after a late night out! Use the same shade concealer as your skin, sometimes a shade lighter works even better, to cover any imperfections in your skin.

2. Mix your favorite shade of liquid foundation (I just used a drugstore brand today!) with a few drops of NYX Pro Foundation Mixer in White. This brightens your face and adds a dewey finish to your foundation. Or, if you want to go full-doll, try using Opalescent to add some shimmer to your foundation.

3. Contour your face depending on your unique face shape. Be sure to add the shimmery white highlighter down the bridge of your nose for a truly Barbie-esque face.

4. Add blush to your cheekbones, but only the region from the edge of your face until about midway between ear and nose. I put on my blush extra bright to emphasize my cheek bones and emulate Barbie.

5. This look just isn’t complete until you’ve added some glow atop your cheeks. I used the pinkish shade just overlapping with the top of my blush line. This adds some dimension to your face, making your cheek bones really pop!


 Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette

1. Yes, I’m a freak because I use eyeshadow to fill in my brows. But, whatever it is you use, you’ll need two similar colors–one darker than the other. Use the dark one to add to the bottom of the brow, the edges, and the lighter one to fill in the rest. Using two related colors makes your brows look more naturally full. I used Buck and Dark Horse from this palette.


Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

1. First, cover your lid with eyeshadow primer in order to keep the next few ingredients in place all day.

2. Pat on a nice base coat of Skimp across the entire lid and over where the wings of your cut-crease will be.Now it’s time to cut the crease. Take a bottle cap and cover your eyelid with it. This will help you to separate the eyeshadow in the crease from the rest of the lid and shape your cut crease. While holding the bottle cap, dust on a light layer of Stark. Over this cut crease, add some 1987 for a base of shimmer.

NYX Loose Powder Eyeshadow

3. On the edges of the wing, add on some silver loose powder for additional shimmer.

4. Go back over the eyelid with a cream eyeshadow in a neutral color. Unfortunately I did not have any cream eyeshadow left, so I just used the color “Fair” from a contour kit.

5. Where the cream eyeshadow and crease eyeshadow meet, add a thin line of pink eyeliner. Make sure to create almost a cat-eye shape at the edge, the tail should be relatively thick.

NYX Matte Liquid Liner

6. Don’t forget to line your lids with a black liquid liner, drawing the tail thinly just underneath the pink tail from the crease.


Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes

7. Glue on your favorite pair of eyelashes, in my photos I am wearing drugstore lashes, but they’re actually quite good!

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara

 8. Lastly, add a layer or two of mascara to finalize your eyes.


MAC Satin Lipstick in Pink Nouveau 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit–Moon Child in Pink Heart

 1.After applying a good, even layer of lipstick, dab some Pink Heart from the Moon Child Palette over the lips. This is a translucent powder that can be combined with eyeshadows, blush, lipstick–anything. It feels pretty strange adding powder to your lipstick, but I promise once it’s all settled in it looks glamorous. This particular combination creates a shimmery, bright Barbie pink.
