But if you need help, here are some best Barbie outfits to help you attain that look for Halloween this 2023!

How to create this Halloween makeup idea:

  1. Cover your face with the Etude House Face Blur Primer (available on Younfamily) and apply the MISTINE Matte Liquid Foundation (available on Mistine Official Store) with a stippling brush (available on ARTBOX OFFICIAL STORE) once it’s dry. The brush helps spread foundation across your face evenly without blending it out too much – this gives you that doll-like complexion.
  2. Hide your blemishes and lighten your dark eye circles with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind High Coverage Liquid Concealer (available on Maybelline Official Store)
  3. Apply the BANILA CO Loose Powder (available on Banila Co Official Store) to your face to help everything set. It’s best to use a powder puff (available on ponyeffect_official.sg) for this to ensure the rest of your makeup stays intact.

  7. Line the area above the crease with some hot pink eyeshadow, bringing it towards the outer corners and creating a sort of eyeliner look. Bring that outer edge down to touch your waterline. Feel free to go back in with more eyeshadow to make it more pigmented.
  8. Outline the crease with a dark blue eyeshadow, or simply any other colour you prefer. Remember to line your lower lash line and eyelids for a more Barbie-esque look!
  9. Line your waterline with some white eyeliner and put on some glamorous false eyelashes on both your upper and lower lash lines

  13. Apply some hot pink DR.TWL Lip Plumper Gloss (available on DrTWL Dermaceuticals Official Store) to amp up the shine factor and you’re done!

Here’s an important tip to know before you start working on your Halloween makeup. While the spooky makeup look isn’t about looking clean or flawless, the last thing you’d want is your makeup to end up blotchy, smudged or creased before the Halloween party is over. 

To prevent this scary scenario from happening, start by prepping your skin properly before applying your makeup. It’s important to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise to keep your skin hydrated and give you a radiant complexion. Primer is also an important step in ensuring the longevity of your Halloween makeup. Another simple trick to make your Halloween makeup last longer is to use makeup with a smudge-proof formula! Last but not least, set your look with a setting spray or powder – and be generous with it!
