Classic 1959 Barbie

Hi Guy and Barbie Dolls 🙂 I know I haven’t done a makeup tutorial since before Halloween, but as I’ve mentioned before, I was out of contacts, and behind on reviews and such.  I also wanted to do something special for my Mom’s Birthday. My Mom was born in 1959, the year Barbie Came out, so I thought she’d love it if I did a Classic Barbie Makeup tutorial.  Here is is, along with pictures and a list of the products I used. You don’t have to use what I did at all, it’s just a guideline of the types of things you are looking for. I had SO much fun with this, and I’m SO pleased with the result. I hope you enjoy it as well.
