[Updated 6 October 2015] The fourth look is in! Blunt bangs plus intensely pigmented eyeshadow in teal inspired by last Fall's Versace show.



If you haven't checked out the @BarbieStyle feed, it's Barbie gone haute couture: full of Barbie's selfies and travel chic outfits, the Insta account du jour has Barbie decked out in minute runway replicas and spot-on makeup. 

For Paris Fashion Week, Barbie now goes full-on runway, thanks to Pat McGrath. The makeup guru will be creating four makeup looks exclusively for @BarbieStyle. Pat wrote on her Instagram account: "The iconic Barbie transformed!!! I collaborated with @Barbie Style to bring a few of my makeup moments to life.' We're calling it runway to real way to doll face. 

The first makeup look is resplendent in chunky, blingy crystals, a throwback to Pat's jewel-encrusted faces at Givenchy last season.


The second is an exquisite incarnation of Pat's cat-eye obsession, septum ring and jeweled lips all in, reminiscent of her punk-inspired look at the 2013 Met Gala:


And the third is colour-blocking gone neon, another one of Pat's signature looks. Pat says: "Jessica Stam i-D Magazine cover circa September 2004 shot by @richardburbridge... contouring and a primary color palette #OBSESSED"


We'll update the fourth when it comes in, so check back for  updates.
