Known for her impeccable style and jaw-dropping beauty, Barbie (the original influencer!) has influenced countless individuals to embrace their inner glam and channel her quintessential looks.
In this blog post, we’ll show you how to achieve Barbie-inspired beauty looks for everyday occasions, whether you’re headed to work, hitting the gym, or going on a romantic date. Comment below and let us know which look we would catch you in around town!
1. The Office Barbie Look:
Embracing a Barbie look for your work routine can boost your confidence and make you feel like a real-life boss babe. Dress for the reality you desire and who you want to!
Start with a natural base using a medium coverage foundation of your choice that matches your skin tone. Highlight your cheekbones with a soft blush in rosy or peachy tones to give yourself fresh and radiant Barbie glow.
For the eyes, opt for neutral eyeshadows with a touch of shimmer. A light champagne shade on the lid and a slightly darker taupe in the crease will create a polished look that’s suitable for the office. Don’t forget to add lengthening mascara, or apply classy false lashes if you’re really feeling it, to ensure your lashes flutter like Barbie’s!
Finish off the look with a classic pink lip color. Choose a shade that complements your skin tone, whether it’s a light baby pink or a bold fuchsia. The key is to keep it sophisticated yet fun, just like Barbie herself!
Dazzle your coworkers with bouncy and voluminous curls using velcro curlers to achieve a blow-out look without the blow-out.
2. The Exercise Barbie Look:
Who says you can’t look fabulous while working up a sweat? Get ready to rock an exercise Barbie look that’s both practical and stylish. Start with a lightweight, sweat-resistant foundation or BB cream to even out your skin tone while letting your natural beauty shine through.
Keep the eyes simple yet defined with a coat of waterproof mascara and a swipe of tinted brow gel to frame your face. Go for a tinted lip balm or a lip stain in a light pink hue for a hint of color without the fuss.
When it comes to hair, a high ponytail or a half-up, half-down hairstyle will give you that playful Barbie vibe while keeping your locks out of your face during your workout. Add a colorful scrunchie or headband for a touch of flair! After all, Barbie believes the more accessories the better.
3. The Nightlife Barbie Look:
For a romantic date night or night on the town, channel the Barbie within and unleash your chic side! Begin with a luminous foundation that provides medium to full coverage, offering you a spotless canvas to work with. Apply a subtle pink blush to the apples of your cheeks for a natural flush that complements the nightlife ambiance.
Accentuate your eye makeup with a sultry smokey eye using iridescent bronze or gold eyeshadows. Winged eyeliner will add a touch of drama, making your eyes pop like you’re wearing Barbie’s enchanting gaze. Don’t forget to apply volumizing mascara or dramatic false lashes for that extra flirty effect!
As for your lips, select a trendsetting and fierce look with vintage red lipstick. The color red is timeless and exudes the perfect amount of allure, just like Barbie’s signature style.
Barbie is celebrated for her luscious locks! Whether you have short, long, curly, or straight hair, there are various hairstyles that embody the Barbie spirit.
For a sleek and cosmopolitan touch, style your hair in a high ponytail or a half-up, half-down hairstyle. Add a cute hair accessory, like a bow or sparkly hairpin, to complete the Barbie-inspired look!
There’s a Barbie-inspired beauty look that suits every occasion. Integrate her legendary style into your everyday looks to stay connected with Barbie’s magical energy. From gorgeous skin to mesmerizing eyes and fabulous hair, mirroring Barbie’s charm is all about feeling confident, fun, and glamorous.
