Makeup Tutorial: How To Get Babydoll’s Makeup Look From Sucker Punch

In fantasy movie “Sucker Punch”, lead makeup artist Rosalina Da Silva created some very droolicious makeup looks that involved a lot of “glamour, color, lashes, glitter and crystals”. My favorite out of them all? Babydoll, played by Emily Browning.

Inspired by Brigitte Bardot with a splash of Anime characters, Babydoll’s look is “sweet, innocent but at the same time very fearless” and all about a 60s eyeliner, long-full lashes and nude lips.

To get Babydoll’s smooth, dewy skin, Rosalina airbrushed various brands of foundations – Armani, Kevin Aucoin, Kett and Kryolan – on. For every day, just use a foundation with a dewy finish and spray your face with MAC Fix+.

The eyes are definitely my favorite part of this look. Start by applying a shimmery eyeshadow all over the eyelid. Darken the crease with a dark brown color. Using a black liquid or gel eyeliner (MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack was used on set), draw a thick line along the upper lashline and finish with a flick at the outer corner. Apply several coats of black mascara and a pair of thick fake lashes (Emily wore 3 pairs in the movie) on top. Finish by dabbing a highlighting color right by the tear duct to really create that doe-eyed look.

Rosy pink cheeks help add to the innocence of Babydoll’s look. Smile big before sweeping a pink blush on the apples. Dab a highlighting color right on top of the apples to really make them pop.

Run a lip pencil along your lip line for a defined shape. Apply a lipstick that matches with your blush and top with a clear gloss.

  1. Adorable! I like that you used the NYX foundation. I actually bought it in the same shade after reading your review and it works pretty well. I like your pale pink lips!

  2. Loved the look! especially the lips I’ll try them out because they seem to be a good look on any skin tone.
    Hugs from Mexico :-)

  3. Thanks so much for this tutorial! I just saw Suckerpunch and LOVED Babydoll’s makeup. You did such a good job, I want to try it on myself now :)How do you apply multiple pairs of lashes? I head Kim Kardashian does that too…

    • You’re welcome Anya! You can either stick the lashes on top of one another before you apply them or you can layer them one by one.
