Hey Lovies! So yeah, I'm not a Barbie Girl, but I LOVE her make-up and in a perfect world I might have her life...LOL! Enjoy the tutorial below and let me know how it turns out!

See ya at the TOP, lovies!

• Eyes: nude eyeshadow, brown-beige shader shadow, highlighter, eyeliner, glitter
• Lips: bright pink lipgloss
• Face: foundation/eyeshadow

Start out with primer all over the lid to create a crease-free and smooth base for the eyeshadow. Sweep nude shadow across the lid all the way to the brow, define crease with a brown eyeshadow. Define brow bone with your favorite highlighter, right under the arch. Apply 2 layers of mascara to top and bottom lashes. Draw a winged eyeliner thickly, as close to the lashes as possible.

Apply glue, let dry for about 30 seconds and stick on the lashes on top of the liner. Glue individual lashes slightly below your natural bottom lash line.
Dab on some lotion or creme shadow onto the center of the lid. Dampen a large, dense brush and apply glitter over the lid. Do not go over the crease line with glitter. Clean up with Scotch tape.

Foundation Primer is a great way to start, it smooths and hydrates the skin and preps it for foundation. Apply foundation with a foundation brush or sponge. Use a concealer under the eyes to cover up any dark spots, and use it anywhere else you need to conceal spots or redness. Apply hot pink blush to the cheeks, blending up towards the temples.

Ah, who doesn’t love a well-groomed, perfect brow! Women use eyeshadow, pencils, stencils, and every trick in the book to achieve it. If you are not a brow pro, I recommend getting it done by a professional and then plucking the little hairs in between sessions. Aim for a higher arch and make sure your brows aren’t spaced too far apart. Fill in with an angled brow brush using eyeshadow or pencil. Right now, I absolutely love Raquel Reed‘s eyebrows.

You can use a bright pink gloss Voila!
