Mexican graphic artist creates a Barbie without makeup

A Mexican graphic designer creates mock up of a makeup-less Barbie to prove “nobody is perfect.”
Eddi Aguirre, a designer from Mexico created a sketch of what Barbie would look like without makeup to illustrate a makeup feature for a magazine.In the sketch, Aguirre depicted a Barbie with freckles, bags over and under her eyes, frizzy hair, shiny skin and braces.

The designer uploaded the project to his online portfolio with the following description:

“An image used in a special makeup feature for the new magazine shows Barbie before and after makeup (nobody is perfect).”

Over the past couple of years there has been a growing initiative to showcase natural beauty. In 2010 Marie Claire magazine had a spread with a makeup-less Jessica Simpson and last week, Mariah Carey joined the many celebrities who tweet makeup-free photos of themselves.

The image of Barbie’s au naturel look has been dubbed refreshing as it reminds people the doll is an unrealistic role model for young girls.

    What Barbie? In my childhood (around 65 years back), I used to play with a heavy piece of Sangunaria wood (red sandalwood) that was approximately carved to look like a doll. I still remember: how my beautiful doll was my most favorite I bathed it or talked with it often.
    My lovely wooden Barbie was occasionally used for medicinal purposes also.
    My cute Barbie is still with me, and I will be delighted to mail her pics to anybody who loves my Barbie.

    Having make up on doesn’t mean you have bad skin, spots and panda eyes -_-

    • Splicage

  • Rodrigo_Girao

    Why don’t we talk about how He-Man is an unrealistic role model for boys?

  • Jasha Gutierrez

    wow…is that an insult to humanity? did she really think that humans without make-ups are that…ugly?

    • Lorena

      I think he meant that if you keep using make-up everyday THEN with time everyone would look like that barbie. It’s known that make-up is actually bad for your skin because it can’t breathe, so it’s no wonder why barbie looks bad (we see her all time wearing it).

    • Marie Cherry

      I’d say she looks quite “normal”.

  • Moka Blu

    Wow! Now I can rest knowing what Barbi looks like without make-up. (sarcastic)

    if Ken had more than a smooth bump it’d be limp right now.

  • Most pretty girls and women I have known look good also without makeup, sometimes better. This seems to unintentionally enforce the idea that women should never be seen without their full warpaint.
