Out with the edgy, in with the elegant. 'Doll face' makeup looks adorably bring out your best features, and starlets make it look effortless. Perfecting this charming visual for three different skin tones takes three separate approaches. Using Kelly Rowland, Tika Sumpter, and Christina Millian as our gorgeous muses, you too can have the 'doll face' using these quick steps!
Eyes: Silvery lavender
Cheeks: Faint cherry
Lips: Sparkling nude
After generously lining your top and bottom lids with jet black eyeliner, use a round-tip eye shadow brush to swipe on your shadow and use a slightly deeper shade in the crease for more definition. A cherry-hued blush will highlight your amazing skin tone, so use an oversized blush brush for a more natural application. Go with a nude lip that shines. No mattes this time.

Lips: Light salmon
Caramel tones can follow the same eyeliner cues as vanilla beauties, but stick to black eyeliner only. A champagne shadow will give the right amount of girly glam to punch up eyes, and a rose blush, applied directly to the apples of the cheek, is the key to making the look less ethereal and more doll-inspired. Finish the look with a light swipe of a creamy, salmon shade lipstick.

FAIR TO LIGHT
Eyes: Rose gold
Cheeks: Baked bronze
Lips: Muted pink
Thinly rim lids with a dark brown or black eyeliner and follow with your metallic rose gold shadow. Too much liner will give you a smoky look. Keep your lines straight and smudge-free, and use your shadow to shade in eyes and outline your liner. Follow with a bronzer that also serves as a blush. For fair skin, the key is to compliment, but not overwhelm with too many bold colors. Pucker up with a sweet pink and clear gloss coating.
