A broken doll can be a difficult look to achieve, but when you’ve figured it out it surprisingly easy. I suggest that you start by drawing 3-D holes on paper, until you achieve a shape you feel will work.
- Have a picture of the hole you wish to achieve, and keep it near you when doing the makeup, it makes it easier to remember how you did it.
- Perhaps even have a china doll nearby that you can use for makeup reference
- Pull the hair back tightly so it stays out of the way
- Ensure that the face is clean and dry before applying the makeup
- Lay out all of your tools and supplies within easy reach
- Ensure you have an extra supply of tissues and cotton swabs to correct any mistakes that you make
- Have a damp washcloth at hand to wipe off your fingers before you do each color application
- Foundation that is a few shades lighter than your natural color
- liquid makeup that either matches your natural color or is a shade darker.

The Basic Doll Face
- Smoothly apply your pale foundation over the entire face, including your eyebrows using a damp makeup wedge.
- Apply Mascara, making your eyelashes as dark and as long as possible, you may even choose to wear falsies to achieve the look you want
- Create a new eyebrow using the black pencil, use the top of your natural eyebrow as a guideline to create a thin arced brow that is higher than your natural one. You want to make your eyes look bigger than they actually are.
- With powder puff pat the eyebrow with setting powder, brush off extra powder with soft brush.
- Apply your eye shadow over the entire eyelid to just below your natural brow line with applicator.
- Apply blush to your cheekbones, many dolls have the blush applied as circles or dots that encompass the cheekbones. Look at your reference material to see how you wish to apply the blush.
- Apply the lipstick as you normally would.
- If you want to have that soft porcelain look, add a bit of powder over your entire face
- Using the black pencil draw the outline of your hole, if you feel creative you can make fractures that radiate out from it. Remember to use setting powder after using the pencil.
- Fill in the edge of your break with gray and a medium round brush, then use your black pencil to shade in dimensions around the edges.
- Take a darker foundation and lightly shade around the exterior of the hole to add some depth to it.
- Fill in the hole with Wolfe black face paint and medium round brush.
If you wish to achieve more depth to your hole you can add browns and reds to increase the shading
