With the Barbie movie coming out this week, I thought it would be fun to try out some trending Barbie makeup looks.  I am bringing you some “Barbie-core” trends that you can try out in your everyday life.

Much like the “dopamine makeup” trends we started seeing after 2020, the brighter and more playful colors used in outfits started taking center stage. Barbie-core fits right into this trend. This may seem like a female only trend but don't be fooled! Guys are sporting their inner femme all over the place. Harry Styles and MGK are the perfect examples.

Check out all my Barbiecore inspiration HERE!


When you are dressing “barbiecore” opt for a bright and colorful palette with pastel hues, pinks, blues, yellows, and purples. I mean Viva Magenta wasn’t the Pantone 2023 color of the year for NOTHING.

Neon colors can also be incorporated for a dramatic ICONIC look. Ahem- Kim K.



One of the biggest components of a Barbie-core outfit is to emphasize femininity and playfulness. Look for dresses, skirts, and tops with lace, ruffles, bows, and puffed sleeves.

Makeup and Hair

I personally think Barbie-core makeup consists of bright colors and full glam! However, I saw a lot of recreations that were Neutral Full Glam. So you can decide for yourself.

If you're unsure where to start, pick a bold pink lipstick or a pop of blue eyeliner. You don't have to go ALL OUT.

I think the essence of Barbie-core is extra feminine CONFIDENCE. The key to pulling off any of these looks is to embrace your playful side and have fun with your fashion or makeup choices <3
