Doll Makeup: How to Become the Dolly of your Dreams

   If your aim is to achieve a baby-doll makeup look then you must begin with a gorgeous pink cheek. I recommend a shimmery peachy pink blush, such as Orgasm by NARS. It looks great on all skin tones and a palette may be a bit pricey, but it will last a year. Also, Diorshow Blackout mascara in black will give you thick, lush lashes to rival Audrey Hepburn’s doe eyes. I’d use a black eyeliner pencil (any drugstore brand is fine: try Maybelline or Revlon) to paint on a few extra lashes below your bottom lash line if you want a 1960’s Mod look a la Twiggy. Dab your eyelids with a bit of Vaseline to give your eyes a shiny, bright look or, if what you’re trying to achieve is a look that’s a bit bolder try Revlon’s Diamond Lust eye shadow in Starry Pink. A small black beauty mark painted below one eye or on the cheek (a la Marilyn Monroe) adds a bit of sex appeal and vintage glamour to any makeup look.

   Glossy red lips are also an absolute must: I recommend first applying a matte red lipstick, such as Ruby Woo by MAC, with a lip brush and then glossing your pout with Maybelline’s Color Sensational high shine lip gloss in Gleaming Grenadine.

   Short round fingernails painted a pastel pink, such as Essie’s Ballet Slippers or OPI’s Rosy Future, will give your doll makeup look a touch of sweetness and innocence. Finish your new look with a few spritzes of a sweet fragrance such as Candy by Prada, Lola by Marc Jacobs or Fame by Lady Gaga, which seems a bit mysterious, as it is an inky black liquid, but it actually smells like gummy bears. With the proper application of a few or all of these products you will resemble a living, breathing doll.
