I tried the viral Barbie filter to contour my face – safe to say it didn’t turn out the way I expected | The Sun

CONTOURING your face is pretty hard to do, even for the most skilled make-up artists.

So when a TikTok filter popped up people can use to create their own Barbie make-up look, beauty guru and influencer Mikayla Nogueria knew she had to give it a go.

The 24-year-old make-up artist put the filter to the test, but it's safe it say it didn't exactly go to plan.

"Is this going to make me look like Barbie? Absolutely not, but lets do it anyways," she joked in the viral TikTok clip.

The filter features dark brown dots and lines that sit on different parts of your face so you know exactly where to place your contour.

There are also pink dots for blusher and white dots for concealer – or at least that's the idea.

Immediately, Mikayla noticed a major flaw with the filter – because her forehead was bigger than the filter the placement of the dots was way off.

"I'm just going to place the dots higher," she said before applying the cream contour.

Next she applied a light shade of concealer to match the shade in the filter.

"I have absolutely never contoured like this," she said.

Things went from bad to worse when she added in the pink dots for blusher.

There were way too many pink dots, leaving the make-up whizz looking more sunburnt that like Barbie.

Even after spending ages blending everything in the contour looked patch and way too bright.

In the end, Mikayla decided to apply foundation over the contour to try make it look more subtle.

She said: "I feel deep down if I put a light layer of foundation on this, it'll actually look good."

After adding matching pink eyeshadow, lashes, and some lip gloss, Mikayla managed to make the look work.

Although the foundation did make the look much more wearable, thebright pink blush and heavy contour still wasn't for everyone and turned out to be much more work in the long run.

"I wouldn't even begin to know how to blend this out," one person commented on the clip.

A second said: "This is a wild ride."
