Her look is considered perfect. Her hair is platinum blonde, her eyes enhanced with a pastel color eyeshadow, and her makeup is natural. Instead, her eyelashes are thick and very long. What about her lipstick? Barbie pink, of course!

During the years her look has changed, becoming more and more modern. Her hair was dyed in all the stylish colors possible, while her hairstyle has not always been straight and perfect.

The first change happened in the 1970s, when the classic pin-up became the California girl. In the 1980s, instead, her hair was messy and she wore a technicolor makeup, as the fashion of the years required.

In the 1990s, Barbie had again a more sober look, and her beauty case colors turned pastel again. Since 2000s, her skin color changed, but she was always perfect. For 2019, the only thing we know for sure is that Barbie will still be made of plastic.

Happy birthday to the most beloved doll ever!
