ICYMI, one of the most anticipated films of the year is almost here, with Australia’s own Margot Robbie set to take on the titular role of Barbie in Greta Gerwig’s upcoming adaptation. With a release slated for July 2023 (just mere months away), it’s no surprise that audiences are gearing up for what is expected to be one of the most standout performances of the year.
Naturally, with a combination of Robbie, Gerwig, and other notable cast, including Ryan Gosling, Dua Lipa, Issa Rae, and more, as well as the iconic familiarity the world already has with the legendary doll, it’s no surprise we’ve already seen the film’s influence trickle down into the beauty space.
From the film’s cast taking inspiration from their onscreen characters to celebs' subtle nods in their red carpet looks, it’s clear that ‘Barbiecore’ isn’t going anywhere. As we prepare for the film’s release, we’re rounding up the makeup trends that have already taken hold—and where you can shop them for yourself.
The Barbie Glow
In what’s been dubbed ‘The Barbie Glow’, Margot Robbie has clearly been inspired by the titular character for her makeup looks ahead of the film’s hotly-anticipated release. The overarching theme? Think pink! From blushes (and lots of them) to subtle pink shimmers on the eyes and matching nails and lips, it’s all you need to channel the famed doll brought to life.
Slicked Back & Flicked Out
Dropping her latest single for the Barbie movie official soundtrack, ‘Dance the Night’, Dua Lipa not only delivered a hit we’ll be playing on repeat until the movie’s release, but a lesson in Barbie-inspired glam. Specifically, the singer, who plays the role of ‘Mermaid Barbie’ in the upcoming film, wore her hair in a perfectly slicked back ponytail, of course, with a signature flick on the ends.
Whether you take a page out of Hailey Bieber’s glam book by pairing a dramatic liner with a shimmering pink or go all out like Patrick Ta’s makeup creation on Lívia Nunes, it seems the limit does not exist when it comes to adding pink accents this season. The brighter, the better!
