Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely seen the effects of Greta Gerwig’s new movie, “Barbie.” Whether you saw it in theaters or are just being inundated with the iconic doll from Margot Robbie’s press tour (and her many, many showstopping beauty looks), the idea of dressing up as Barbie for Halloween may have crossed your mind once or twice.
If the new movie and Barbiecore trend have taught us anything, it’s just how many different types of Barbies there are. The Mattel doll has changed a lot over the years, but nothing compares to the blond beauty herself. Barbie has held practically every career under the sun, meaning pretty much anything can be tweaked into a costume, but if you want to go the traditional route, a classic Barbie Halloween costume is simple enough to re-create. You just need blond hair (natural or a wig), the right makeup look, and your favorite pink outfit.
For makeup, Barbie is known for her soft glam — just a pink lip and fluttery lashes. When you think of blond Halloween costumes, Barbie is likely top of the list thanks to her diverse catalog of past hairstyles. From a bouncy blowout to a retro ponytail and bangs, you have options — depending on your skill level or the amount of time you have. But let’s not forget about the many additions that used to come in the plastic box, from headbands to purses and makeup compacts. To really do a Barbie Halloween costume well, make sure you pack on the pink accessories.
Ahead, get inspired to re-create the trendiest Halloween costume of the year with hair and makeup tutorials to help you transform into Barbie.
