I know everyone is on a natural makeup high (myself included) after this weekend’s Royal Wedding, but I’m doing a complete 180 and instead of sharing one for today’s Makeup Monday post, I’m sharing a daring Barbie Doll makeup look! Most days you can catch me in minimal makeup – light foundation, bronzer, blush, brows and mascara – but then there are those days where blue eyeshadow and iridescent lip gloss is calling my name and this was one of those days.
I don’t know why most women are so afraid of blue eyeshadow. Is it a little out there? Yes, but it’s wearable! And if you’re afraid to take the whole blue eyeshadowed plunge, why not start with a swipe of blue eyeliner to test the waters. I actually used blue eyeshadow and blue eyeliner to create this look, but you could easily just use one or the other!
As for these iridescent lips…I mean I couldn’t think of a better finish for this pale pink lipstick! Just the right amount of sheen and so much dimension when it catches the light. If you’re a little leery about this combo I suggest adding the iridescent gloss over a nude lipstick or just wearing it on it’s own.
And now for the skin, the biggest takeaway from Meghan Markle’s wedding day makeup for me! I know I tend to do a little bit of crazy makeup, but one thing that remains consist with all my looks is fresh, flushed skin. Less is more when it comes to foundation for me and I’d much rather just cover up imperfections (for me it’s the skin on and around my nose), then cover everything.
Scroll down for more photos of the Barbie Doll makeup and leave me a comment to let me know what you think! Would you wear this look?
