Halloween Barbie Makeup That’ll Turn You Into a Living Doll

OK, yes, the whole idealization of Barbie is super antiquated — but there’s no denying the fact that the doll makes for one kick-ass Halloween costume. And since most of us grew up playing with Barbie, a costume homage to her definitely has the nostalgia factor going for it as well.

Even though there’s nothing simple about Barbie, putting together a Barbie costume is actually pretty easy. The bright colors and over-dramatized makeup are our favorite part, so if you focus on those two factors, you’ll be well on your way. Here’s our step-by-step breakdown for makeup that’s fit for a doll

Step 1:

Apply a white cream shadow as a base. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk is perfect for this.

Step 2:

Use your finger to blend from your lash line all the way up to your brow.

Step 3:

Take that same white pencil and line your inner rim to give eyes a larger appearance.

Step 4:

Pat a white eyeshadow all over the lid.

Step 5:

Using a purple pencil liner, draw a line just above your natural crease. Barbie is rocking a cut crease, in case you haven’t noticed. I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Vice.

Step 6:

Next, take a matte violet shadow like Urban from the Urban Decay Electric Palette and smudge out the line you just drew with a pencil brush.

Step 7:

Extend your purple cut crease past the inner corner of your eye to make eyes appear wider.

Step 8:

Using your same purple liner, draw a straight line, starting at the outer corner of your eye.

Step 9:

Use your pencil brush to soften and blend the line out.

Step 10:

Taking a crease brush, dip into a magenta color like Jilted in the Urban Decay Electric Palette and soften out your top edge, working the pink into the purple color.

Step 11:

Use a makeup wipe to clean up and sharpen your outer edge.

Step 12:

Using your purple liner, draw along lower lash line.

Step 13:

Take your pencil brush dipped into Urban and smudge it out.

Step 14:

Apply mascara to bottom lashes.

Step 15:

Apply white shadow to your brow bone to highlight this area and add more dimension.

Step 16:

Using a black liquid liner, line your top lash line. Too Faced 3-Way Lash Lining Tool is really easy to use!

Step 17:

Cut a false lash strip in two sections. One small, one large. Place the smaller piece on the outer corner of your eye, just past where it ends.

Step 18:

Apply the other lash section to your lower lash line.

Step 19:

Find the most unnatural, longest false lashes you can get your hands on and place those along your top lash line.

Step 20:

Apply mascara to fuse your lashes together.

Step 21:

Apply a candy pink blush.

Step 22:

Using a medium pink lip liner, line lips, exaggerating the peaks of your top lip. I used NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Pinky. Take the liner just a little bit past the corners of your mouth for a creepy perms-smile.

Step 23:

Fill in lips with a bubblegum pink shade. I used Tarte’s 12-Hour Performance Lipstick in Whimsy, which is sadly discontinued, but Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Pink Pop would be a good stand-in.

Step 24:

Go back in with your lip liner if necessary to clean up any areas.

Step 25:

Now throw on your super-blond wig and some blue contacts if needed and go meet your Ken doll!
