What would Barbie look like if she had no makeup?
Visual artist Eddi Aguirre decided to find out, and the resulting image, posted to picture-hosting site Imigur, is not unlike those makeup-free celebrity pictures the paparazzi like to snap.
Digitally altering a Barbie image, Aguirre swapped the doll's iconic bright pink lips, blue eyeshadow and luxurious lashes for baggy eyes, freckles, braces and an oily sheen. He even gave her silky blond hair some frizzles and split ends.
In another image, he takes a brunette Barbie doll in a bikini and adds a few pounds in the form of cubby cheeks and a pot belly.
In his online portfolio, the Mexican artist said he made the pictures for a magazine feature about makeup to illustrate that "nobody is perfect."
