Modern girl group members have a lot in common with dolls. They both represent the ideal of beauty.
Girl group members attract a lot of attention, thanks to their statuesque, slim figures and their fashion sense. Some actresses even use different makeup styles to make themselves look like living, breathing dolls.
◇ Make eyes twice their size with eyeliner and eyelashes
Doll makeup has an unrealistic quality. For example, a Barbie doll’s eyes practically cover half of her face. To make your eyes look bigger, you should line both the top and bottom of your eyes. You can also draw eye lines longer than your actual eyes to make them look bigger.

If mascara doesn’t satisfy you, you can wear eyelashes to make your eyes look like a dolls’ eyes. If the eyelashes look artificial, you can apply a brown eye shadow along the boarder of your eyes to soften the line and make them look more natural.

◇ Pastel eye shadow goes well with blush

◇ Innocent lip tints make you look healthy
