Some of you may be wondering why many people want to look like Barbie. First and foremost, she has porcelain skin. Second, she has big puppy eyes that are so innocent looking and child-like. Third, it just makes you look so flawless. Well, personally, I don’t understand the reason why people go for this look. I mean, to me it just looks so unnatural but, hey, to each his own.
There are a lot of make up tricks that you can use to look more doll like, and so, here are some tips that will help you achieve that.
MAKE UP: HOW TO ACHIEVE THE DOLL LIKE LOOK
Ahh… the holy grail make up product! Ask anyone what their favorite make up product is, and they will definitely say “BB cream” in unison. I can speak for this myself. I have been using foundations for my make up but I found it a little bit thick on my skin. When I first used BB cream, I instantly fell in love with it. I mean, it’s like a miracle product because it contains all benefits in one! It’s fairly light and easily absorbable (if there’s such a word like that).
In most make up looks I’ve seen, I’ve always noticed how they emphasized on a natural looking base and glowing skin. If you have dry skin and you would want to achieve a glowy, porcelain skin look, use a BB cream that has pearl shimmers in them. As for those with oily skin, choose one that is more matte.
A little product goes a long way. If you have annoying blemishes, use a concealer to cover it up. Layering BB cream or foundation just to cover those spots is not a good idea.
Ombre lips or gradient lips create that “I’ve just eaten a popsicle look”. The color is mostly centered on the inner part of the lips and the color gradually fades outward. It creates the appearance of the innocent doll like look.
I haven’t tried this one yet, and I never plan on doing it anyway. However, if the doll like look is more your thing, these lenses will do the right job for you. It’s a little bigger than the size of your pupils. These lenses are a little bit weird to use because you’d look like someone from outer space without proper eye make up.
Thick Eye Make Up
To create larger eyes, you would need the services of Mr. Thick Eyeliner and Miss False Eyelashes. White eyeliner on your lower waterline can also make the whites of your eyes appear wider.
Now that you know the basics of achieving this make up look, practice doing it at home. Although it’s not the kind of make up that people would go for on an everyday basis, it is a fun look to try, especially for Halloween.
