Makeup Tips: 

For any doll costume makeup, try using a white eyeliner in the waterline, then in a defined semicircle under the eye. Then line that semi-circle with black liner, connecting it to your top lid’s liner. Then draw on big, dramatic bottom lashes. This gives that faux, wide, doll-eyed look. Don’t be afraid to use lipstick on the cheeks for a costume-esque doll appearance.Russian nesting doll mommy and baby costume Russian nesting doll mommy and baby costume Russian nesting doll mommy and baby costume Russian nesting doll mommy and baby costume Russian nesting doll mommy and baby costume
