Is anyone else still LIVING for #BarbieCore beauty? This trend resurgence that started subtly enough last summer in small ways like nail art expression, has fully reintegrated into our collective beauty lexicon, especially since the namesake movie release. Pretty pink hues have us all in a chokehold and show no signs of getting off our necks any time soon.

We can’t get over these iconic Black girl Barbie beauty looks from the movie’s red carpet premiere and the stars themselves. So we’re revisiting them and letting them inspire us to wear pink for main character energy well into the fall. Let’s get into these hair and makeup moments we can’t help but stan. 

Doll Face

Alexandra Shipp, a.k.a. Writer Barbie, gave the sweetest baby pink Barbie beauty, from her soft pink blush, eyeshadow, and frosted lip to her delicate pink stiletto nails and tousled updo with face-framing tendrils. With her ballet pink satin top and bejeweled skirt, this look screams chic doll come to life. 

Bronzed Barbie


President Barbie never looked so bronzed! Issa Rae slays summer by the pool with perfectly matte skin, lightly rosy cheeks, shimmery pink lids, and a chocolate-colored gloss. A high curly ponytail keeps her cool, and a Barbie pink Ivy Park swimsuit finishes the vacation-inspired look. 

Video Barbie Vibes

Mette Towley, a.k.a. Barbie Video Girl, served us glazed donut skin, a soft pink lip, and big bodacious curls at the London premiere of the Barbie movie. Together with her flowy pink top and oversized jeans, this look is a relaxed Barbie vibe we can absolutely get into.

The Perfect Ponytail


Kiersey Clemons donned an iconic Barbie ponytail for the movie’s red carpet. The wrap-style knot and flipped ends on this high slick ponytail nail the quintessential toy look!

The Bigger the Bow

Not the biggest fan of Barbie Pink? You can still channel her in subtle ways like Skai Jackson did here. Big fluttery lashes, light eye shadow under the brow, and a hint of pink under the eye make them look larger and more doll-like. She has her hair pulled off her face with soft baby hair around the edges and then finished with a massive bow because the bigger the bow, the closer to Barbie!
