I also love the old school glamour styling of Freida and the smoky brown eyes + burgundy lips. I'm dying to know the color of that lipstick she is wearing...any guesses? Perhaps a Chanel or one of the new YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks....
Its actually reminiscent of a fall cover, no? Definitely not your typical spring cover with brights and/or pastels!
Apply Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers in Light to Medium to skin.
Add color to the cheeks by applying Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Blush in in Natural Apricot.
Add highlight to the cheekbones by applying Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Illuminator.
Apply Neutrogena 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes in Medium underneath the eye to get rid of any dark circles.
Apply Nourishing Eye Duo in Fairy Dust, using the darker shade in the crease and then brushing the lighter shade over the entire lid up to the brow bone.
Apply a combination of two pink moisture-infused lip colors – Neutrogena MoistureShine Lipstick SPF 20 in Angel’s Blush and Sheer Luck.

Hair stylist Guido Palau attempted slightly imperfect chignons for the hair. He applied a thickening spray to hair and blew it dry. He then finger-combed hair back and gathered it into a ponytail at the nape of the neck, securing it with knotted black cord. Palau then twisted the hair up into a loose bun, pinning to hide the elastic. Lastly, he pulled several pieces of hair out of each chignon for an imperfect look.

Makeup artist James Kaliardos used MAC Studio Sculpt Boundation on the skin and added a hint of MAC Pink Swoon Blush at the top of the cheekbones. Kaliardos used a sweep of MAC Drizzle Gold Eye Shadow across the lids, and added cocoa shadow on the brow bone to give the illusion of separation of the lid from the brow bone. Then, he added a hint of gold glitter on the inside corner of the eye for radiance and swept a very light coating of glitter across the lids to catch runway lights. Kaliardos also added individual false lashes for a natural, yet filled-out effect. He finished the eyes with lots of MAC Zoom Lash Mascara in Black. Finally, he applied MAC Lipglass in Partial to Pink to the lips.

Orlando Pita first blow dried hair straight and then spritzed hair with T3 Renew Dry Conditioner. Pita sprayed his hands with T3'Control Hairspray and finger-combed hair back to create a little volume. After putting hair up, he added visible copper hairpins everywhere in decorative patterns and intermittently placed small bronze flowers throughout the hair.
Look!! Its Lakshmi working her glow!! Makeup artist Diane Kendal for MAC Cosmetics lined the waterline with a nude shimmer pencil and added white pearlized MAC Pigment on the browbone and the top of the cheekbones. Kendal used a peach MAC Mineralize blush and finished with MAC Twig lipstick layered with a berry MAC Dazzleglass shade. I am loving the muted mauve lip color on Lakshmi.

Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury for MAC Cosmetics used thick black eyeliner on both the upper and lower lashes - slightly thicker on the top and squared off at the outer corners for a twist. She finished with tons of black mascara. Tilbury then added rose blush to the top of the cheekbones and applied a rosy cream blush to stain lips.
Black Black Chromaline – lining the top lashline in a thick rectangular shape extended out past the outer corner of the eyes.
Ebony Eye Pencil – applied to the water line.
Black Prolash Mascara – applied to top lashes only.

Hair stylist Eugene Souleiman dampened models' hair with Wella Professional Curl Artist and blew hair out with a round brush. He then sprayed roots with Wella Professional Ocean Spritz to create volume and texture. Souleiman parted hair in the middle, took sections from each side and knotted the sections in the middle twice. He used black cord to secure the knots.
For present day Barbie, makeup artists gave models pink cheeks and topped skin with Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation. They applied Stila Giggle Lip Vinyl to lips for a pink lip, Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eye Liner to eyes and false lashes. I love the pretty pink lips and cheeks! Orlanda Pita teased hair for an extremely voluminous look and finished the look with T3 Plump and Control Hairspray.
For Barbie of the past, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury created a fifties inspired black cat eye and a red glossy lip, putting to rest the idea that you can't do both extreme eyes and extreme lips in the same look! Tilbury used Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eye Liner on the eyes and Stila Strawberry Lip Glaze on the lips. Pita gave models an ultra high wrapped ponytail and slicked back tresses with strong, straight bangs.
For future Barbie, Tilbury went all out on the models' faces with glitter and sequins in purples, blues and fuschias. She used Stila Smudge Pot in Wisteria and Cobalt on eyes and Stila Praline Lip Glaze on lips. Tilbury covered eyebrows with bold violet feathers and lilac gemstones. Besides all the color, Tilbury applied Stila Tinted Moisturizer, Stila Perfecting Concealer and Stila Sun Bronzer to skin. For hair Pita, created high buns wrapped in braided hair extensions.
