    Description: You might think that my medoll has a lot of makeup on, but I remembered when assigned with this task about my mom's porcelain doll, it was just so elegant, and my favorite feature of it was its super pale skin. I also remembered its heavy makeup, making it look so gorgeous, I especially loved your picture of the vibrant red lips. I hope you enjoy my look :)

    Description: I decided to opt for a warm metallic glow to the porcelain doll look. The eyes are very emphasized, the cheeks hold only a whisper of colour, and the lips are bold & bronze. The whole outfit can be seen here, if you wish: http://tinypic.com/r/vwxrvk/7

    Description: I have my own porcelain doll, so I decided to base my looks around her appearance, so my eye colour, hair colour e.t.c are almost identical to hers. I decided to use a pink/red colour scheme, because that just jumps into my head when I think of doll. Most of my make-up was inspired by the looks I found on google, and I hope my renedition measures up to them!

  11. I remember Lizs doing a tutorial on this :)

    At first, the task seemed very simple to me, because to me, the perfect image of a Porcelain doll is controlled colors, some solid colors, and maybe some edgy colors for the hair color & Lips. However, the task really did take my imagination for a ride, as I went to research on the internet for more ideas of how a Porcelain doll may present her make-up. My look is really a very edgy but soft look that is attractive to whoever meets the eye. I was trying to get a sense of the more striking side of that type of doll with the red lipstick and really define her cheekbones and face, with the blush.
    Thanks (:

    Description: I wanted my dollie to be simple but effective, I was kind of going by the theme "Black 'n' White" because I love those colours: but also, as you can see, I put some red in there aswell to give it.. colour! If I was honest, I'd say she looks a bit sad, hahah, but I think it all works :)

    I really love the look of the creepier porcelain dolls, I was inspired by one that I own. I took part of my inspiration from a makeup advert, also. I thought she was a little different, and I really like how she turned out :) Hope you like her ♥

    Description: For this doll, I wanted it the entire face to stand simple and the eyelashes to be the main centrepiece, thus making the skin as white as I could to create a contrast. The main reason why I wanted the eyelashes to stand out as I always remember the majority of porcelain dolls for their sweet, innocent "butter wouldn't melt in her mouth" looks and long luscious, perfectly cut eyelashes. I blended pastel eye-shadows together to add to her innocent look and to bring together the accessories.

    Description: I was hugely inspired by porcelain dolls cheeks, which is greatly reflected in my makeup look. I decided to use pale, muted colours for this look. To achieve to big doll-like eyes I placed lashes higher and lower than they would usually be applied. I used a 'white out' effect on my eyes, which makes them appear larger and wider. I also lined my top lash line with a black liquid liner to blend the fake lashes with the real and to define the eye shape. The cheeks are a mix of a strong pastel pink colour with a creamy purple placed gently on the cheekbone as a highlight. The lips are created with two shades of pink and lipgloss, to give them more dimension. A sheer blonde colour used on the eyebrows and hair intensifies the pale complexion of a porcelain doll's skin.

    Description: I'm into strange dolls, so, I've seen a few dolls with red demon eyes(The picture is NOT demonic in anyway),and, one of them had it's hair all tied up and elegant.

    I made the eyebrows thin, because, I thought it'd make it look more like a doll, less like a human.

    I made the lips open, and kept them a natural colour, because red seemed too harsh... I don't own a lot of makeup for my medoll, so, I used the best I could.

    Description: believe it or not I was inspired by whores, the other day I went to Barnes and Nobles and I found this book full of paintings and vintage pictures, it was beautiful and one of them was this prostitute seating sleeping, she had a lot of makeup on but she was really pale so she really looked like a doll. It was just inspireing and at the same time sad to see this picture cause such beautiful lady could have been something in life.

    Description of look: This was actually really difficult lol. Because I find these dolls a bit creepy, that's kinda the look I went for. I lightened the skin tone & chose bleach blonde hair. The eyes are the main part of the doll I wanted to stand out, I find them a bit scary! I added tonnes of eyelashes to make the eyes pop even more. As the rest of the doll was quite pale, I chose darker vibrant colours for make-up.

    Description: I love dolls, but I feel like they're trapped in their perfect skin, so their eyes are always melancholy.
    I wanted to get that through by sucking the colour out of her makeup - She's the doll that time forgot.
    I was going for a creepier, rather victorian edge that might suggest she'd declare revenge on her owner if she could.

  40. My makeup is inspired by the dolls I had in childhood, There were usually gifts from my grandparents and they were always so pretty, had white skin, big eyes and a lot of eyelashes, and they always were like princesses to me, and they had to have some kind of a hair decoration, usually a hat of some beautiful hairstyle with flowers, that's what I tried to incorporate into my new "porcelain doll". also I always had the impression that my dolls were very pretty but weren't happy since they didn't have souls and they couldn't feel emotions, however in spite of this they often had rosy cheeks and this was the thing that brought happiness to their lives, so I tried to make my doll "pink".

    I must live under a rock because I've never heard of Porcelain Dolls until now. I mean, I think I've seen them before, but I didn't know they had their own name and everything. So I when by what I thought could qualify for this theme. A light skinned girl with cute cheeks, deep eyes and delicious hair.

    Description: I was inspired by an add for a makeup line, that had this purplish/pinkish color as the main color, and then I did my own twist on it...
    The eyes kinda creep me out, because I had never tried to do anything like this before, so, sorry for that ;b
    The lips, I was trying to go for the porcelain doll lips, but I'm not sure if they worked out very well...
    Anyway, I hope you like it (:

    Description: I was inspired by the typical surreal girl, who believes living in a world completely happy, without malice, like a fairy tale, because it has everything that she want, live as a porcelain girl in her porcelain world. But of course, it's just a porcelain doll. Using typical large bows and red lips, but not the typical blonde doll in this case represents a brunette doll ;]
    I hope you like it :]

    Description: This doll i chose is called Molly Brown. She lives in the 1700's and shes a part of the royal family. Very profound, elegant and yet a little haunting. considering i did not own a baroque dress like her, i have tried to peruse the doll through the big eyes and baby lips.

    Description: I wanted to achieve that very innocent and sweet porcelain doll look, you know, big, dark eyes, long lashes, curly hair, etc. I also wanted to make her look kinda alive. I used mainly dark eye makeup, which I spiced up with a pop of dark red eyeshadow in the middle of her eyelid, this made her eyes to match the bright red lips, cheeks and hairbow. The fair hair is kinda the key feature, as the medoll gives a completely different impression with for example, black or brown hair. For me personally, as I tried it many times, to make a medoll actually look like a pretty porcelain doll and not a pale mess, seems really difficult. But this time I'm actually really happy with the final look.

    Description: The make up I've put is very soft ,with sades of white and soft pink, and I've given emphasis at the cheeks by adding a mix of burnt orange and flame red blush. My main inspiration for that was Selena Gomez at her new music video pretending to be Marie Antoinette (I think she kinda looked like a porcelain doll there :P).I believe my doll looks really innocent and cute in this make-up(my sister said she's like an angel fallen from heaven:P) and I hope you really like it :)
