FOTD: Barbie Mariposa-Inspired

It's no secret how much I enjoy watching Barbie films. I've seen every one of them! I've witnessed how Barbie's look has changed through the years - from Barbie in a Nutcracker to Barbie in a Mermaid Tale Part 2. Can't say I don't miss the old Barbie face, but I do like how the recent Barbie films are more fun and comical than the old ones. Yes, I still watch Barbie, and no, I am not and will never be too old for it. Haha.

Anyway, so I was watching Barbie Mariposa the other day and got inspired to do a look similar to Mariposa's, and here's what I came up with.


And here's Mariposa's look.


FYI: Mariposa is a butterfly fairy who feels like she doesn't fit in with all the other fairies in Flutterfield but eventually learns that even when something doesn't fit in, that doesn't make it meaningless at all.

And here's my version...


Eyes: silvery blue on the lids, purple and pink on the crease
Cheeks: subtle pink blush
Lips: rose lipstick with a bit of gloss


For the face, I used:
Snoe S-Skin BB Cream in #1
Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer in Light
dreamGirl Lovelight BB Powder in 02

My face was so dry when I did this look and it's sooo obvious in the pics! Maybe it's the new product that I'm using :/


For the eyes, I used:
LA Colors Mineral Eyeshadow in Pacific - purple on the crease, blue on the main lid
Ever Bilena Mousse Eyeshadow in Opal - as base for the blue eyeshadow
Stila Trendsetting in Tokyo Travel Palette - pink to blend the purple crease color
Ever Bilena 12-Eyeshadow Palette - matte black to darken the outer corner a bit and line the lower lash line
Nichido Girls' Night Out Eye Pencil in Blackest Black
Etude House Oh m'Eye Lash Volume and Longlash Mascara

I finally got to use the LA Colors palette I got from Maven Magazine's Beyond the Blush Beauty Blowout! I didn't think I'd be able to use it because I just usually go with neutrals or pink on my lids.


For the cheeks, I used:
ELF Natural Radiance Blusher in Shy


For the lips, I used:
NYX Round Lipstick in Hope
Careline Extra Shine Lipgloss in #11 (on the center)

I went a little darker on the lips because I wanted to use one of my recently-purchased NYX lippies. Loving the shade! :)


Hope you like it! That's it for now. Have a great day! By the way, I posted about my trial look on my personal blog *here*. I hope you check that out and maybe follow it too? :)
