Beauty Board: Barbie Lips
Like most little girls in America, we were raised on a steady diet of Berenstain Bears books, Big Bird, and Barbie. Of this trio of childhood favorites, the buxom blonde was certainly the most influential and inspirational. Of course we were impressed by her crazy career (Astronaut! Doctor! Artist!), reality-defying flexibility, and enviable lifestyle, but what really hooked us was something simple: her pretty pink lipstick. Whether it was a pale carnation hue or hot magenta, Barbara Millicent Roberts always worked some wonderful shade to great effect. It seems that Barbie's lipstick preferences still have a strong presence, as we've noticed that many modern beauties like Drew Barrymore, Chloe Sevigny, and Taylor Momsen are reaching for similar shades. Apparently, the must-try makeup mantra this spring is: think pink!
