Barbie Gets a Trendy Makeover Courtesy of Makeup Artist Pat McGrath

If you don’t follow Barbie’s style feed, @barbiestyle, you’re missing out. Our favorite childhood doll now spends her days traveling the world to attend Fashion Month, has over one million Instagram followers and is getting trendy makeovers courtesy of legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath. #Jealous. 

Pat McGrath announced on Instagram, “The iconic Barbie transformed!!! I collaborated with @BarbieStyle to bring a few of my makeup moments to life. Here’s one of four, Jessica Stam i-D Magazine cover circa September 2004 shot by @richardburbridge…contouring and a primary color palette #OBSESSED #makeupbypatmcgrath.”

Our favorite of the four different looks? The winged-teal eyeshadow look inspired by Versace circa 2013.

And below, a punk-inspired transformation in which McGrath took note from the 2013 Met Gala and created “dramatic brows, a septum ring, and jeweled lip.”

McGrath also mimicked a similar bejeweled style as seen at the Givenchy Spring 2016 runway by decking out Barbie’s eye in Swarovski crystals.

Guess we’ll be taking inspiration from Barbie when we’re in need of fresh new makeup ideas. Now if we could only stop singing Aqua’s “Barbie Girl.”
