An artist’s rendition of what Barbie would look like without makeup is going viral online, and for good reason. The classic all-American girl doll looks natural!

Well, mostly. Ridiculous body proportions aside.

Take a look at Barbie with no make up below …

Barbie With No Makeup

While Barbie’s face is still freakishly out of proportion with your average young woman’s, she does look a bit more human without the blue eye shadow.

Take away that, the lipstick, the penciled-in eyebrows and the fake eyelashes and what do you have? A doll that looks a lot more like the girl next door, for sure.

This isn’t the first time someone has conceptualized a “normal Barbie.” Earlier this year, an artist illustrated what she’d look like with average measurements.

Barbie’s shorter, curvier look earned raves from Demi Lovato and others. Will the no makeup version making the rounds this week draw similar praise?

And would you be more inclined to buy this or the original model? Share your comments on the latest re-imagined, more natural Barbie doll below.

Dancing With the Stars Spring 2012 Cast: Revealed!

Jack Wagner, Sherri Shepherd, Maria Menounos, Gavin DeGraw and Melissa Gilbert are among those competing on Dancing With the Stars this spring.

A pair of sports stars – Green Bay Packers wideout Donald Driver and tennis legend Martina Navratilova – will also be lacing up their dancing shoes.

Perhaps more importantly, Maksim Chmerkovskiy says he’ll be back!

DeGraw is up for some serious double duty, as he will also continue his current U.S. tour for the first few weeks of the season, if he can last that long.

Gavin’s pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, will most likely join him on tour so they can practice, but none of his concerts conflict with DWTS air dates.

Wagner, Heather Locklear’s ex, will compete amid a minor scandal, while Menounos and Shepherd represent the entertainment show contingent.

Here’s the full Dancing With the Stars cast for this spring:

  1. Jack Wagner, Melrose Place/Bold and the Beautiful star (Partner: TBA)
  2. Melissa Gilbert, Little House on the Prairie actress (Partner: Maksim Chmerkovisky)
