A viral image of Barbie without make-up got me thinking: is this what Barbie would really look like without make-up? Ken is a pretty good looking doll. So, surely Barbie without make-up can’t be too different.
Sure enough, Barbie still looks pretty, even au naturel…
The viral image was an exaggeration, which got a lot of people talking. However, it was an exaggerated image which was not based on the real characteristics of the doll.
The real Barbie without makeup brings up a new point: if Barbie can look good without makeup, why doesn’t Mattel make dolls with a more natural look?
