wHiMsiCaL makeup glamor wednesday

Today our gLaMoRoUs dOlLs we will be learning how to achieve the famous Barbie Doll look.
Since she is one of the most famous dolls in the world I felt it was perfect for our first tutorial.

1.) Always exfoliate your face before doing your makeup
Suggested: The Body shop seaweed pore-cleansing Facial seaweed scrub $14.50

2.) Moisturize your skin
Suggested: M.A.C's Complete comfort creme $32

3.) Applying foundation
Use your 187 brush by MAC with MAC Prolong wear Foundation. The brush should look like a blush brush but it has white ends to the tip. Dip the brush (just the tips) in the Pro long wear foundation and buff all over.

4.) Applying Powder
Use studio fix powder and buff in with preferably a Kabuki brush MAC 182 (looks like a very short blush brush) or you may also use MAC 150 which is an extra large blush brush. Pick up some powder with your brush and buff the powder in a circular motion until the whole face is covered.

5.) Applying Bronzer and Blush
Apply the bronzer first and use it to contour the cheek area. I used beach bronze by MAC. Suck in your cheeks an apply the bronzer in the hallows of your cheeks from your ear to your mouth in a diagonal angle. Next smile and on the apples of your cheeks apply a bright pink blush called Desire by NARS. This color is super intense so build up the color slowly on your cheeks. And blend into the bronzer for a more natural look.

6.) Base for eyeshadow
I used a paint pot by MAC in the color painterly. Apply this all over the lid all the way up to the brow. I use my finger to do so. Make sure it is completely blended.

7.) Applying eyeshadow
I started with applying the light creme color called Vanilla by MAC to the eyelid below the brow and 1/4 of the inner part of the lid with the MAC BRUSH 227SE.
Next apply the green color called Lucky by MICABELLA an eyeshadow from the lid up until I reached the crease with the MAC BRUSH 224.
Next I applied the the blush by NARS called Desire (same one as cheeks) above the crease and blended it up into the Vanilla with the MAC BRUSH 217.
Next I used the MAC BRUSH 219SE to make a cut crease with the MAC pigment called Grape and blended the crease as it reaches the inner part of my eye.

8.) Applying eyeliner
Next I used black track for my eyeliner with MAC 266SE Angled brush winged out at the end. You want to dip your brush into the gel liner and start making a line from the inner corner out to the end of your eyelid. As you reach the end of your eyelid you want to angle the brush towards the angle of the eyebrow and flick out. Take your time to do this part you may need a little practice and patience.

9.) Applying Mascara
Make sure to spin the wand in the tube and do not pump it. I used PLUSH LASH BY MAC. Place it at the top of the eyelashes and wiggle into the lashes as you spin the wand outwards. Do the same underneath the eyelashes until all of the eyelashes are covered. You can always add lashes if you'd like a more dramatic Barbie look.

10.) Applying lipstick
I first outlined the lips with NYX lipliner called PINKY. Then I filled in my lips with a Barbie Pink Lipstick by MAC called Chatter box and to top it off I used a clear lip plumper by Pout to make my lips more full an Barbie like.

And that's how you make your self in to a gLaMoRoUs BaRbIe dOlL!!
