Style Your Hair and Makeup Like a Living Barbie Doll

Barbie Doll Makeup
It's Barbie's world, we just live in it. Really, who hasn't coveted a living Ken Doll and pink convertible to call her own? This iconic doll is inarguably one of the greatest style icons of all time. Although you'll never be able to copy her impossibly perfect measurements (her form is highly exaggerated and not to be mimicked in real life, natch), you can copy Barbie's makeup and hairstyles in a pinch. Try on Barbie makeup in our virtual makeup studio by uploading a photo.

There are a number of gorgeous Barbie dolls that exist, many of them with dark skin and raven hair. Others that retain the original platinum blond Barbie look. Regardless of the color you choose, opt for a long, layered hairstyle that cascades around your shoulders and has plenty of lift at the roots. You can create Barbie-inspired volume by blowdrying with your head upside down with a large boar-bristle brush and setting your hair in large Velcro rollers for 20 minutes. The alternative is to take a large barrel curling iron to 2-inch sections of hair; hold the iron vertically to create waves that undulate loosely instead of tight spirals.

Opt for full strips of false lashes to get a fluttery look that would make Ken weak in the knees. For precision, apply them with tweezers while looking downward into a mirror. You can peel them off and reuse them a few times by stashing them on a piece of plastic or a credit card and wiping them off with a Q-Tip dipped in eye makeup remover.

Channel the original Barbie circa 1950s with ruby red lips and black liquid eyeliner winged at the outer corners of the eyes, or go full-throttle Malibu Barbie with flushed cherry cheeks and mauve or pink eye shadow. Bubblegum pink lips, painted with copious amounts of light-reflecting gloss, will amp up your evening look or put the finishing touch on your Barbie Doll look. --Stephanie Simons
