A Famous Makeup Artist Makes Over Barbie Dolls And They're Killing Their New Looks

Love it.

International makeup artist Pat McGrath has worked with some of the top, most iconic brands and famous faces in the business. From Kim Kardashian to Karlie Kloss and Dolce & Gabbana to Versace, her body of work can be found on countless runways and in the pages of top magazines. 

She "is arguably the most sought-after catwalk make-up artist around, creating some of the most fascinating fashion week beauty looks of every season," according to Vogue.com.


And just recently, McGrath added another iconic name to her portfolio: Barbie.

In the four part series, McGrath recreates a look from an Atelier Versace runway show, Jessica Stam's 2004 i-D Magazine cover, a look from the 2013 Met Gala and other high fashion beauty moments.

With a shaved side cut and bold, primary-colored makeup, Barbie's above look accurately re-envisions the cover look from the 2004 issue of i-D magazine, featuring doll-faced model Jessica Stam.

In the style of the 2013 Met Gala, themed "PUNK: Chaos to Couture," the above look features a septum ring, dark brows and thick, black eye makeup.

Above, Vogue.com describes "a mahogany-haired Barbie, darkened cat-eyes bedecked with gold glitter and Swarovski crystals [that is] reminiscent of McGrath's recent facial jewelry creations at Givenchy."

Thanks to McGrath, we get to see the dolls rocking the some of the coolest fashion looks from years past — and we love it.
