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

April 5, 2011

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.

    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!

    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.

    Love your looks! Can you tell me where to buy the eyelasher from?

      Thanks Christina 🙂 The lashes were from my line and I don’t carry them anymore. You can try combining Jealousness U.S.A. False Lashes JS-504 Extravagance with Jealousness U.S.A. False Lashes JS-702 Natural Fashion (both available at my store) for the same results.
