If You Have Ever Wanted to Look Like a Bratz Doll, Now Is Your Chance

Plastic fantastic!

Since the late ’50s, fashion dolls with perfect figures, extensive wardrobes and an impressive list of careers have been a la mode with young girls the world over. And while Barbie was the it doll who dominated sales until the end of the ’90s, after we entered the new millennium, Bratz dolls came on to the scene and have remained there ever since.

Being Bratty

What initially set Bratz apart was the fact that they weren’t about high glamour and adult pursuits but were modelled on tweens and had the wardrobe and attitudes to match. That, paired with their oversized eyes, lips and heads in general, made them stand out on the shelves as the doll for modern girls (and we are low-key wondering if Kylie Jenner‘s entire face is based on these toys). This means that they were the plaything of Gen Z kids and, now that they are old enough to wear makeup, it only makes sense that they are recreating their favourite Bratz doll looks and posting them to the ‘gram.

A lot of the makeup artists and enthusiasts who are posting their takes on the #bratzchallenge are posing alongside the doll that their look is based on. And the results have been as impressive as they are creepy. Here is just a sampling of what searching this tag brought up – prepare to be amazed.

While most people wouldn’t be brave enough to wear these exaggerated looks in public other than at a dress-up party, there is no doubting the talent of these ladies or the impact that Bratz dolls have had on popular culture. In the meantime, we can’t wait to see what other makeup trends from the early-2000s are going to be making their social media debut in 2019. Fun times!
