About Face: India-Haylee Barton
This week’s About Face is particularly special because it highlights (pun intended) two key figures of early aughts nostalgia: Barbie, and her IRL counterpart, Anna Nicole Smith. The inspiration was intentional, and model India-Haylee Barton, alongside makeup extraordinaire Satya Linak, seamlessly brought both icons back to life.
“I am always inspired by painting India’s exquisite face,” Linak says. “For this feature our theme was Barbie, and we went for it! Though I tried to keep an editorial vibe to it.”
To say that this duo slayed the beauty throwback game is an understatement, to be sure; a more accurate phrase would be something along the lines of ~total beauty dominance~. Thus, we won’t bore you with any further descriptions of said looks; instead, peep them for yourself, exclusively on MILK.XYZ.
Look 1The first look was more of a classic Barbie look. I prepped her skin with MAC Strobe Cream and Murad Renewing Eye Cream. For that plastic looking skin I used a wet Beauty Blender sprayed with Cinema Secrets Moisture Spray + IT Cosmetics CC Cream + IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer + Danessa Myricks Beauty Light Illuminator + a tiny bit of IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed powder to set around the nose.
Cheeks were Kevyn Aucoin Medium Sculpting Powder for contour + Surratt Beauty Se Pompenner & Guimauve blush + Danessa Myricks Beauty Synergy Enlight Powder to highlight. On the eyes, I started with Danessa Myricks Beauty Glacier Color Fix + Danessa Myricks Beauty Aura of Synergy Enlight Powder (lid) + La Femme Frambosia & Mulberry shadows (crease) + Cozzette Illume Infinite eye shadow (crease) + the black in Cinema Secrets Natural Collections shadow palette (lower lid) + Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Feathered pencil (waterline) + Charlotte Tilbury Bedroom black liner (tight line)+ Surratt Beauty Autographique liquid liner + Roshar Modelrock Lashes #09. Brows were MAC Fling brow pencil + Surratt Beauty Blonde brow pencil. Lips were Nars Grasse Precision lip liner + MAC Pinkie lip liner + Kevyn Aucoin Hydraa lip gloss. I always use the best brushes from Cozzette & Smith Cosmetics for applications. Wigs are from my personal collection.
Look 2For our second look we were inspired by Anna Nicole Smith, but still with that Barbie vibe.
On India’s skin I used Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancers stippled on with a wet Beauty Blender sprayed with Cinema Secrets Moisture Spray. Cheeks were Cozzette Infinite Contour palette + Surratt Beauty Se Pompenner & Guimauve blush + Danessa Myricks Beauty Light Enlight Powder to highlight. On her eyes I started with a mixture of Danessa Myricks Beauty Fireworks & Lift Color Fix + Cozzette Gratitude & Oceanic Infinite eye shadows + Danessa Myricks Beauty Love Story Metal Pigment + Charlotte Tilbury Bedroom black liner + Surratt Beauty Autographique liquid liner + Roshar Modelrock Lashes #09. Brows were MAC Strut brow pencil + Surratt Beauty Brunette brow pencil. Lips were MAC Pink Treat lip liner + Glossigirl Pinky & Pushover lipsticks + MAC Clear Lipglass.
Stay tuned for more Barbie-inspired beauty goodness.
